I used a brush in photoshop to get this effect. Its not great painting or anything. But it is the beginning to the 100 words thing as well as the story that came out of it. Nothing is really happeneing though in the story so I don't know what will really come of it.
*I do not know why sometimes these don't load in internet explorer but I went back through everything IN internet explorer and only one thing didn't load other than this and I know I've had problems more than once before. So either it will eventually show up or it won't. It won't even let me link to it.
