Only 9 hours, 54 minutes left!!!

Now it’s down to 9 hours, 53 minutes! You better get your story ideas in!


Here’s how it works…


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…
