In Which I've Got My Work Cut Out For Me

Well. What a pleasant surprise!

I didn't expect nearly as many entries as I received on the post I had up on Wednesday. I thought I might get a handful, probably six or seven, but not 43. Forty-three! It was great seeing the comments tumble in throughout the day, and seeing how widely the suggestions differed. It was awesome to see so much participation in this, too. 

After collecting and organizing all the entries I received by comments (and two via Twitter), I gave each entry a number. Using Random.org as promised, the first entry I'll be writing about is lucky number twenty-nine:




The brilliant mind behind entry number 29 is none other than Nyx! Congrats! Here is her entry:

Title: Lampshade Silhouettes
Name: Agnes Pennyworth
Location: Home
Emotion: Terror
Object: Teacup

I'm looking forward to putting this story together. The wheels are already turning in my mind. There are so many other great entries, so for the rest of you who weren't picked, don't feel left out. I do plan on writing a short story for each of your submissions, and I'll let you know about the ones I complete as I manage them. 

Thanks again, everyone, for your participation in this project. I can see this turning into something pretty big, but one thing is for sure... I have my work cut out for me.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Yaaaaay! Major Congrats to Nyx!

I was hoping that you would write something using all of our ideas. We're totally excited to see the brilliance that you come up with.

Good luck, BadAss!

Terror in a Teacup - I think I've read that one before!

Best wishes for the writing, and I am really looking forward to reading all of them!

Now really, to be fair, you should randomly select the order of which you will write stories for all of the suggestions now, so we know what to expect, and also for you to hold yourself accountable, otherwise, you might "cherry-pick" and let some of the really interesting ones get away... (like Pirate's!)

Hurray for Nyx. Apparently I can't follow directions and didn't include a name with mine so when you get around to writing my story, feel free to make up your own name!

Gosh, this project is awesome. Too bad I came in on this too late, but I am sure the story will be amazing. Best of luck! Will you be posting it on Fiction 500, too?

I went to leave you a comment on that post, then saw how many you had! I didn't want to overwhelm you so I refrained from chipping in. What a great project!
