It’s a new year and a new month….. which means, time for a new blogging game! Yay! Uh, you guys WERE looking forward to this, weren’t you?
So maybe some of you have noticed by now, but last month I failed to do a blogging game due to time constraints, stress, lack of inspiration, and just plain laziness. I’d originally intended to post one after I came back from vacation and then when that didn’t work out, after Christmas, but by then I figured no one really cared and if we all survived the end of the world, a new month would be here in no time.
And now here we are.
I thought long and hard about what would be interesting and fitting for this time of year, when we’re all still starry-eyed and full of ambition. And then I came upon the idea of a never-ending story. (A never-ending story, baby just say yes~~ oops, wrong lyrics…. sorry, Taylor!) Don’t ask me how that correlates with being starry-eyed and full of ambition, it just does.
What’s going to happen is I’ll start off the story and then it’ll be up to YOU to keep it going. Don’t worry too much about story logic or plot structure. Yes, those things are important if you’re writing a book but we’re not, so don’t be afraid to indulge in your inner fantasies! (Wait. That didn’t sound quite right….) I’m more interested in how this all plays out so feel free to add in random twists, turns, and cliffhangers for the next person to play off of. Or not. It’s all up to you.
When it looks like everyone’s imagination has been exhausted, I’ll wrap the story up and post it in a separate blog in all it’s glory for everyone to see. No, there won’t be a definitive ending (at least I don’t anticipate there will be one) but it’ll be good fun to see how everything comes together. Like an elementary school science project. Get ready to pour, mix, and blow things up, everyone.
There is no minimum or maximum word count so feel free to be as succinct or rambly as you want. You can also come back and add to the plot as many times as you’d like (if you start spamming or hogging the space though, I will have to ask you to step away with your typing hands raised). Most importantly, use your imagination and get creative! No one is going to judge you (you there, stop judging!) so please don’t be shy. Just go with it and see where your brain takes you. This is going to be the best story EVER.
Here we go! I’m not a fiction writer so if you’re cringing at the awful beginning, well, too bad. I never said I was good at fiction.
It wasn’t like she didn’t know where she was going. She did. Things just had a way of turning into obstacles or else distracting her so much that by the time she realized she was off track, she forgot what her original intention or destination was.
Like two days ago. She was running late as usual, but stopped by the post office anyways to mail an important package. As she dashed across the street, she caught a glimpse of a very odd sight and unconsciously slowed down for a better look.
What did she see? Did her package get mailed off? Do we even care about that? What’s her name, anyway? Please continue this story!
