Stir the creative juices, provide an idea for a story
I got this idea from book I’m reading called ‘Let the Crazy Child Write” by Clive Matson, so I thought, why not make an In & Out of it. |
1. Each post must provide a character (name or brief description, author’s choice).
2. Each post must provide a goal the character wishes to accomplish.
3. Each post must provide an obstacle the character has to overcome before goal is achieved.
1. Keep posts 13+ or below.
2. Brainstorm. Post crazy, zany, out-of-this-world posts.
3. Posts can be any genre. Comedy, satire, horror/scary
Author’s Note: All posts are fair game for other authors to develop stories/poems/etc.
If you do create a piece inspired by a post, I’d be interested in reading/rating/reviewing it.
