ThresholdRPG - Writer's Weekend I (WWI) - This weekend!
A call to writers. This weekend, I will be hosting: Writer's Weekend I!
If you're online in Thresh, there will be an event channel. The goal of
weekend is to write a short story. It doesn't have to be fantastic or
perfect, or anything. It goes like this:
I will use an online plot generator for each person, the link is here:
Big Huge Thesaurus: Synonyms, antonyms, and rhymes (oh my!)
The plot generator spits out 5 plots, you pick one and write a short
story surrounding that plot. They don't have to be long short stories,
as short stories go, they can be somewhat short.
The event lasts the whole weekend. I will be handing out plot chunks
on Friday night. Bring your coffee, your beers, your inspiration, your
muses, your troll dolls with brightly coloured hair, whatever.
Sunday night is the night you need to have finished your short story.
The dead line is 10pm server time (Eastern).
The principal goals so this exercise are simple:
1) Camaraderie between fellow writers of Threshold
2) A short story! it'll be awful, it'll induce terrible,
terrible waves of nausea upon the reader, and yourself,
the grammar will be horrible, the subject completely random
BUT IT WILL BE GLORIOUS!!!!
1) Mudmail (ww) in Threshold to announce your participation.
2) Participants will be required to complete a short story
by Sunday at 10pm.
1) You don't even have to be a "writer". You may just want to
have some fun! You're welcome to participate, too!
2) If you have time to edit your story, go ahead, but it's
totally not a requirement. We're just looking for brain
dumps, and some interesting writing.
We're looking at a minimum of 1000 words, with a 2000 word goal.
Let's get it on!
