*COMPLETE*
I recently came up with a new idea for experimental writing, so here it is. These are my rules:
1. The first chapter shall be the end of the story with the following chapters going backwards in the time-line.
2. Each chapter should be exactly 7 words, no more, no less.
3. Each sentence used shall be a complete sentence with subject and verbal. Incomplete sentences are not allowed, but dashes are allowed to extend the sentence in different ways.
4. Each chapter should tell it's own story. It should be possible to read each chapter as it's own short story, while they are connected by a story line.
5. It shall be possible to read the story in BOTH directions (starting at the end or the beginning). (not backwards words, but turning the chapter-order.)

I revised this as of 14th of August and completed it. I found out it was unnecessary to have 7 words on each page :-P

kecurb, Anglor, comments, all in imaginative world.

He found door, knocked, entered, found all.

He flew, landed on cloud – in heaven.

He swam, gasping air, but sucked – up.

He found himself stranded on never-ending beach.

Something hit his head. He woke up.

Like boulder from sky, he was blackened.

His heart pounded. It was too intense.

He swallowed and began sweating like waterfall.

The softness and flavour, was like endotoxin.

He picked it up, the colourful shroom.

Through the bushes, he spotted the cap.

He was giving up, one final look.

Three hours in jungle, was demanding energy.

From the beach, he set foot inside.

Fumbling by horrible daze he crawled out.

He opened his eyes, looking at wreckages.

A large bang, the plane landed harshly.

The silence before storm, no sound embarked.

Sudden change in wind, they feared everything.

Captain was rendered useless, nothing could undo.

Ignorant as any, he received message.

Enjoying life and the trip, he changed.

Boarding his business trip, he was prepared.

The average man, accepted through the tunnel.

“Welcome onboard Mister Zin-Dar, enjoy the flight.”
