Another 100 word story update, a little bit late. I had this all typed up last night, but it just didn't feel right, so I decided to sleep on it and see what I'd find in my dreams. Initially it was just about clouds and shearing them like sheep, but after waking up it became a story about looking for that silver lining.
I'll put up more stories today to make up the lack of it the past few days due to work and review.

11/29/2013 (Friday)- Stealing Silver
I spent days and nights chasing clouds, for I thought I’d find in them a dream. I’d wrangle them where I could, tied them up and leashed them, as I prepared to extract their abstract silver dreams.
I stole some from the sky, but most were dark and cold. I nicked more from neighborhood kids, but theirs I found too bright and sweet. The best were from the couple just across the street, for theirs were bitter-sweet dreams of love that used to be good.
I did it all for a little silver lining.
I did it all for dreams.
