Companion to Day Twenty-Three: Daylight


We reached land, searched empty houses, and found a child’s skeleton clutching at dirt.

‘Anyone want to leave?’ Sol said.

No-one spoke.


It’s official: the next twittertale will be entitled “Daylight”, set in Canberra – a tale of a pandemic known as EMO, transmitted among young people. Symptoms include pale skin, dark clothes, and the irresistable urge to bite one’s friends and associates in order to suck their blood. Victims also hate daylight, due to the unfortunate fact that it makes them. . . sparkle. 

“Daylight” will begin October 3rd (probably), and end on 31 December this year.

  1. 🙂 You’re serious?
    You want illustrations for that, too? If you do, send me the story whenever you can so that I can give you illustrations from the very beginning!

  2. I certainly wouldn’t say no….but my excuse for asking you for so many pictures is that THIS story (“Worse Things Happen at Sea”) is in a competition at

    I’ll certainly send you “Daylight” (when I write it…) but don’t draw anything for it unless you feel like it 🙂
