So here's how it works. Want to write something, but don't know what to write? Looking for an idea? Hoping for some inspiration? Bored? This is the thing for you, then.
The game is simple. You send me a NOTE (not a comment) with the subject "Writing Prompt". In the body, write a simple introduction for any character you want. It can be yours, it can be a new character, it can be any character you are legally allowed to write about. Important things to bring up in the paragraph are:
- Who they are: Name, species, age, relationship status, etc.
- What makes them special? Are they smart? Strong? Super sexy?? do they have fifteen vaginas? Are their body parts prone to spontaneous combustion? Give them something unique.
- What do they need? Every good story involves the main character NEEDING something. A car? Oxygen? A tight ass? Give them a need that they will want to try to fulfill, wether they -want- it or not.
After you've address those three issues, click SEND.
A while later (after someone else has submitted), you will get a response. This response will be someone else's introduction. You're going to take their introduction and add on to it. Yes, you may get a character you were not expecting or are comfortable with. That's okay. As long as you keep their need and specialness in mind, you can take the story any where you want. You'll have guidelines for each section after wards, as well, of course, resulting in you getting your OWN character back to see what happened to them.
If you have nothing else to do today, feel free to sign up. :) It may be abig waste of time, but since when has writing been BAD for someone?
