Story on Demand: Hey, Remember This Thing Edition

Yeah, I haven’t done this in a while. It feels a little weird, a little strange — a little dangerous.

Hold me.

For those of you new to the game, here’s how it works. Once a week I throw out a net for story ideas, then write a short piece inspired by the shiniest idea-minnow in the net.

I’M SAYING YOUR IDEAS ARE FISH.  Because I am a wordsmith.

I sort of summarily suspended this while I was finishing the rough draft, and then editing — but I’ll make it all better, I swear.

Just a reminder, I’m looking for an idea, not a plot. The best ones that I’ve written came from one or two word suggestions. Here are some examples:

Shakespeare 2012

A Hero’s Death

Teatime

So yeah, give me your thought-fish. To make it interesting, whoever puts the last comment on this post by noon EST on Saturday, a winner is you.

  1. Getting to the party a little late here…so let’s make that my idea…your hero is late to save the world/princess/prince/wizard/child/what-have-you.

    Now what?

      1. Awesome. I am editing my own beast this weekend. Nice to know someone will be creating on my behalf while I’m tearing myself apart. By the way, I might re-blog the stories you’ve written “for me”. Is that okay?
