New Chain Story – join in and take it to new and interesting places
Everyone can have a go and you can have as many turns as you like, but they can’t be consecutive – in other words you have to wait for someone else to contribute before you add to the story again.
But this time I thought a couple of variations might be fun.
You can only write ONE sentence at a time.
If it gets stuck for a while I’ll chip in just to get it moving again rather than wait for the end. But I will try not to dominate or twist and turn it – that’s your job.
It closes midnight Saturday December 19th (GMT) and I’ll stick the whole magnificent work together and post it here so we can see it in all its glory.
The opening line comes from a wonderful exercise which ensures that you never have to say again what shall I write about…
This is how it works. Go to your bookshelf and pick a novel at random. Turn to page at random and find the first complete sentence that doesn’t mention a character by name. That’s your first line.
This opening sentence comes from page 101 of The Last Winter of Dani Lancing by P.D.Viner (recommended: ghosts + crime fiction + great story telling).
Start writing. (Note present tense – that’s a challenge in itself)
On the table the superskinnysoymoccacinolatte is cold, a film formed over the top.
