I've been turning this idea over in my mind for a little while, and I think it's time to share it. The thing is that for it to work, I need something from each of you. It's not much, but if enough of you contribute, I'm thinking this could turn into something quite interesting.
What I need from you is twofold. First, I need a title. Secondly, give me four words: a name, a location, an emotion, and an object.
Armed with these words, your words, I will attempt write a short story. I'm not holding myself to any length requirements, but rather will just see how it plays itself out. Once written, I'll post the resulting story here. In a way, the story will be just as much yours as it is mine. I've been looking for a way to help stimulate my creativity and get me past this damn writer's block, and I think this will help get the ol' juices flowing.
Here's how the first round of this will work. Leave a comment with your title and four-word suggestion. If you have more than one suggestion, leave a separate comment for it to count. The cutoff point will be tomorrow night, January 13th, at 8:00pm EST, at which point each comment with a complete suggestion will be assigned a number, and I'll use Random.org to pick the one I'll use first.
So, what do you think? Are you game?
