This blog has been running about a year now and it seems that the tradition is to do something about it.
So here’s what I propose:
I’ll write whatever you want for a month.
Anybody who wants to get involved can leave a story idea in the comments section of this post by the end of the month and I’ll turn it into a story.
The rules are you can leave any kind of prompt you like, from something as general as a genre to a specific plot idea. Or if you prefer you can list some words to include or a line that must be said by one of the characters. All comers in all forms are welcome.
Every prompt will be turned into some kind of story. It might be a drabble, a flash, a short story or maybe something more. But I’ll write something for every single one. No ideas will be rejected*.
I’ll post stories on a Fridays. Suitable entries will go into FridayFlash.
Don’t be shy!
*Unless it’s really, really, really sick. And gratuitous. Or likely to get me arrested. Or divorced.
