I love The Twilight Zone (1959-64). It’s personally the greatest television series of all time. Rod Serling is a brilliant storyteller, and his sharp narration only makes the show even more hypnotic – “A dimension as timeless as infinity… the middle ground between light and shadow.” If you watch this series long enough, you’ll realise how influential it is on the movies and T.V. shows we watch today. I’ve yet to come across a show as significant as this one.
With 156 episodes, it’s a challenge to point out the best ones since they’re all practically genius. But since it ran for 5 seasons, I’ll share 5 of my personal favorites. I won’t talk about them too much as I took the liberty of attaching each [30 minute] episode for your viewing pleasure – in case you’ve never seen them before.
So read on, press play and unlock this door with the key of imagination.
In early 2008, I wrote a story. It took me 2 weeks to finish it. When I was done, I kept it stored in a computer folder without letting anybody read it.
As I mentioned in my last post, I recently discovered a writing community website called Wattpad. After sharing a couple of short stories there, I decided this was the perfect place to get this story out. So after a few edits on the narrative (the original version had too much irrelevant content), I bring you: The Good Friend.
Just click on the image to view the story. It’s 19 wordy chapters but it all makes sense in the end. Hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
The characters and events depicted in this story is fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead is purely coincidental.
A couple of months ago, a friend introduced me to a website where users can post poems, stories and fan fiction, called Wattpad. Considering how I love to write, I was immediately drawn to it. I liked how you could put covers on your written work; and I particularly liked how you could read and write from both the computer and mobile app – regardless of the fact that there’s a mobile app for practically everything nowadays. So if you like to read things other than your facebook timeline, check it out! I highly recommend it to the writers who wanna share their work to the public.
I’m gonna share my (first) Wattpad posts. They’re basically the short stories I originally posted here, so you could either read them (and my other stories) here or you could view these select stories on Wattpad – since I like them better now with cover photos.
