Okay. I want to try something new and fun for the month of September. And I need your help. In fact, if you don’t help me…well…it won’t be successful at all.
Here’s the thing.
I want to stretch myself and my writing. So, we’re going to play a little bit of a game. You pick the characters, situations, places, time (in history) and I’ll write the story. This is how it will work.
1. You pick a character. Give me a few characteristics (loud, quiet, quirky, homeless, rich, etc). You can even give me a name for the character.
2. You pick the setting (era and location. Is it in a home, mall, office?). Pick a year and region.
3. You pick the conflict (fighting with spouse, out of work, lonely). I’ll figure out the resolution.
So, be creative. Have fun. Give me a challenge! At the end of the month we’ll have a vote of the best/most interesting story. The winner (the one who came up with the best ideas that led to the best story) will win…
A Freeset Signiture T-shirt! (organic cotton, made by women who have been freed from the sex trade in Kolkata, India. The lettering are the names of the women who work in the t-shirt department of this Fair Trade Federation member company. Previously, these women were unable to read and write their own names.)
So…give me your ideas in the comments or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll take your story ideas until Wednesday, August 31 at 12:00 am Michigan Time.
Ooo…I’m so excited!
Ready. Set. Go!
