Round Three - February 2009



Round Three Prompt:


Write a short story inspired by the following information:

Andrea Dalton and Stuart Fitzgerald are strangers who are thrown together under extraordinary circumstances, and the experience is life-altering for one of them. You decide who are Andrea (or Andie, Dee Dee, etc.) and Stuart (or Stu, Fitz, etc.); what are their personalities, hang-ups, back stories, and what led them to their fateful meeting. The extraordinary circumstances don’t have to be cataclysmic; use your creative discretion when deciding what “life-altering” means in your story.

Either Andrea or Stuart must be the story’s POV (Point-Of-View narrator). Feel free to bring sideline characters into your story, but doing so is not a requirement.

Here's the kicker! *Right* Your story must be told in First Person Narrative.

Round Five - June - July 2009


Round Five Prompt:


Write a fictional short story inspired by this information:

The name of your protagonist and POV narrator is Elvis Presley. It could be his given name (What were his parents thinking?) or his nickname. It could be a stage name, username, chat room identity, or an alias. There is no limit on your creative interpretation of why he is called Elvis and what effect the name has had on him in his life. He could even be a she. Write a story about a secret he tries to keep.

Your story can be in any genre (drama, comedy, sci-fi, romantic, historical, etc.). You choose the narrative style – first, second or third person. Feel free to create other characters to round out your story, though doing so is not a requirement.


*Right* Here's the kicker! The fact that his name is Elvis Presley must contribute to a central conflict facing the POV.

The maximum word count for this round is 2500 words. Please include a word count with your entry.
