Writer's Workshop

Here's another segment from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. If you wanna check out more stories and writings, click here.

I thought I saw a hobbit.

I swear.

It was in the basement of the hospital.

I was on my way to a workshop. The classrooms are located in the basement. I had gotten separated from my co-workers (on purpose…I couldn’t take the incessant chatter a moment longer) and was a little lost. I still don’t know my way around here too well.

While wandering further and further in the bowels of the hospital, I smelled…mushrooms? WTF? Mushrooms in a hospital?

I just chalked it up to mildew. It all kinda smells the same anyway.

*turns head quickly*

What was that?

It looked like a moss green cloak.

But that’s impossible.

The bottom was only a foot off the ground.

I don’t think there’s any midgets that work here.

But I could be wrong.

There’s that mushroom smell again.

And footsteps.

Behind me.

So soft. Like an Indian. Stealthy like.

But when I turn back, all I see is the same moss green cloak ducking behind a recycling bin.

Then…impish laughter.

Now, I’m freaked out.

I think a hobbit’s following me.


21 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:


bwahahahaha i love this!!! i love the 'like indians. stealthy like.'

heh. heh.


Hmmm....I wonder what he wanted...kind of freaky with that impish laughter!!


I think it was a leprchan. Hobbits are taller than 1 foot.


I don't know what it was but I sure as hell wouldn't be going down to that basement by myself! ;)


Oh, please...tell more...'cause it's my dream to have a hobbit follow me. It's also my dream to travel to Middle Earth, but we'll save that one for another day.


Do you smell the mushrooms because they are on your breath?! Ha...

The pipe smoke is usually the tell-tale.


I don't think it's a Leprechaun, they were those little boots, don't they? I'm going with sentient slime mold, they smell a little like mushrooms...


We need a

Captain Dumbass

I'm with Kelly, I think the mushrooms were on your breath.


"I think a hobbit's following me".

I love it!!! Great story!!


Naw....It was just some weird short f*** that works in the basement.


I totally knew that's where they hung out. Hospital basements in the South. hehe

Wait? Are you making fun of my hobbit feet? I'm so coming over, clubbing you on the head and forcing you into a plural marriage. Wait, I think I already did that once.

I'm with Lula, Hobbits have a certain appeal to them, actually I love hobbits. This was great, again
