April 4, 2005 – Stream of Consciousness

This entry is part 37 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Mitch Mosier I don’t like technology. I don’t like typing my thoughts on a screen when I have paper and pencil. Yes, it’s efficient. Yes, it formats and spell checks. But half the personality of a journal is in the scrawls and eraser marks. I don’t want to write…

March 31, 2005 – Timely Reflections

This entry is part 36 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Dr. Xayyachack Alas, this entry must be short. Just today I received a letter from an associate to whom I had promised – nearly a year ago – to complete a project of utmost importance for him. Regretfully, and, I am ashamed to say, unsurprisingly, I had completely forgotten…

March 29, 2005 – Reality TV vs. Hiking

This entry is part 35 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Dr. Xayyachack This afternoon as Robert was helping me tidy my private laboratory, he remarked, “You know something, Dr. X? I think living here in the mansion is sort of like being in one of those reality shows – the kind where a bunch of strange people are forced…

This entry is part 34 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Bob Brown I just came inside. It’s hard to see the stars here. It was a long day. I finally took Lance’s offer to be his exercise partner, so now he can stop bugging me about becoming his exercise partner. He takes his weight training very seriously. I don’t…

March 17, 2005 – Black Out

This entry is part 33 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis I have just come from one of the most entertaining episodes of my stay here in the castle. All day it snowed up a storm. I didn’t write. Delighted, I just sat in front of my window and watched it fall. I was going to go to…

This entry is part 32 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis I think I see Cassandra’s concern now in placing locked doors on our wings, though I’m still not sure why the men are separate from the women. Anyway, I went to my usual café for lunch today. (I needed a break from the confines of my room.)…

March 14, 2005 – Satin and Flannel

This entry is part 31 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Katrina Alexis The room was alight with diamonds reflecting tall, ornate chandeliers. The long, pristine white table with its expensive dinnerware and silver candlesticks was surrounded by aristocratic men and women dressed in their finest black. Soft classical played in the background. Crystal goblets clinked. Hushed voices spoke in…

March 10, 2005 – An Unsatisfactory Meeting

This entry is part 30 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino Miss Talbot was not in a very good mood last night. I sat next to Bob at our weekly meeting, pointing discreetly to the other members and telling him a little about them. I thought it proper to give the boy a head’s up. He nodded, but…

March 8, 2005 – Robert Brown the Third

This entry is part 29 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino I told Miss Talbot that she should not worry about introducing our new member to the Story Project, that I would do it. “The good doctor already has the job, Lance. And stop calling him the new boy. His name is Bob.” “Bob?” She nodded smartly. “Yes….

This entry is part 28 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Lance Valentino What strange people populate this world! I admit I’m a people watcher. When I go to the mall, I watch all the people passing by, like the covers of books not yet read. Such wonder lies in each! How frustrating it is that I can’t convince others…

February 26, 2005 – OUT!

This entry is part 27 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Sarah Smith Living at the mansion is awesome, I have to say, especially on Saturdays. My room is all mine, and all the boys (Lance) are in another wing, so I hear only a loud whoop in the distance from time to time, and that’s if my music’s off….

February 25, 2005 – You’re Not a Writer, Thank You

This entry is part 26 of 49 in the series The Story Project

By Sarah Smith You know the whole letting-the-poem-issue-go thing? Yeah, we can forget that. We can pretty much just forget about the whole thing. Today, my office was flooded with calls from people claiming that they’d written the poem. Fortunately, Ms. Talbot had expected this and had deleted a portion…
