    Default Thrice Upon a Time Writing Contest

    This will be a collaborative effort.  If you're in for this round, post below and I will assign you a portion of the 'story' to create.  You might get to design the personality of the main character, or his/her physique, or you might get to create the plot, setting, villagers, complications, etc.  Together we will create a rich background, about which you will then write individually.  

    Please let me know that you're going to participate by Saturday 10:00pm Eastern.

    I'll give you a few more days after that to post your background assignment, and then a few more after that to write given all the information we've created together.  As always, you can write in any style or form you choose.  

    I'm looking forward to it!

    Carol

    I caught you a delicious bass.

    Great!

    You can create the setting. Whatever you want.... the details are completely up to you.

    Post whenever you're ready. I'll set a deadline a little later.

    Thanks, Brady.

    YAY!

    Mimi, you can create the character's physique. You decide if we're talking hunky surfer dude or skinny Barbie wannabe... anything goes.

    Thanks!

    I am one happy girl! Hooray for all the fun!

    Stu, I will let you create the personality of this character. I think you'll do a remarkably good job with this given your last poem. You and Mimi can collaborate if you'd like, or you can take the MAD lib approach and see what you get when you each post.

    Mark, how about you choose a situation/conflict? Can't tie his shoes? Wants to run away with the circus? Fighting the urge to step on an ant? Funny, somber, twisted - I'll let you choose.

    Did I mention I was happy? Thanks for the enthusiastic response!

    Default The Setting

    It was a nicely apportioned room. None of the angles were too sharp or too soft. You got the sense that someone actually lived here, rather than kept it for show. The wallpaper was old, green, and peeling in the corner by the lamp. African tribal masks dominated one wall. Another, where a single bronzed LP hung in a dusty shadowbox, was almost stark by comparison. The old television set in the other corner had been cleverly converted into a fish tank filled with colorful specimens from all over the world. The furniture seemed to have been selected with only one theme in mind: comfort. Off toward the back of the room was a small table set for tea, where an obviously loved teddy bear waited patiently for more biscuits. A picture window near the door opened to a view of the desolate landscape, spectacular in its simplicity.
    I caught you a delicious bass.
