Challenge #2 INSTRUCTIONS

Post by MC on Tue Mar 03, 2009 7:23 pm

Jumble Story: Below are 10 characters, 10 settings, 10 time periods and 10 situations. Choose four numbers between 1 and 10.
If you chose the numbers 1,2,3,4, you would then apply the 1 to the first category (character), the 2 to the next (setting) and so on--clicking each corresponding spoiler tag to reveal your selection.


Your challenge is to write a story with the character, setting, time period, and situation that you've randomly chosen.

The character that you've chosen should be the main character in the story, but isn't necessarily the ONLY character in the story. Likewise, most of the story will take place in the setting that you've chosen, but you can include other settings or elaborate on the setting that you have chosen (breaking it into several smaller settings, for example). The situation or challenge that you've chosen may involve the main character or your main character may observe someone else who must deal with the situation or challenge. In other words, you can combine these elements anyway that you desire, so long as all four are included in your story.Let me know if this doesn't work for you. Just email another number and the category you want to swap.

Story size limits: 4 pages or less.

If you have questions, please pm me and I'll get back to you asap. cool
