And It's Over To You

I like a bit of a challenge and a good excuse to get the brain fired up and firing on all cylinders. So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to offer myself up to your tender mercies and slightest whims. Yes, I'm going to write a series of blogs based upon your input.

Here's what you need to do. You need to provide me with the following:-

  • A character name
  • An object
  • A line of dialogue
  • A story title

And I will task my feeble brain with weaving those elements into some sort of coherent story. Yes, it's risky, it chancy, it's a gamble - mainly because I may not get any suggestions but also partly because I may be opening myself up to a frightening world of depravity and filth. Although anything which may get me sued for libel is probably best left in the confines of your own head.

If I'm lucky enough to get five suggestions form you lovely people out there in Blogland, I'll make a week of it. Let's give you a deadline to spur you on, shall we? Deadline is midnight this Friday (12th March). Either leave your suggestion as a comment or email it through to me (to hide your shame at your own unspeakable depravity, presumably).

Incentive? Really? Oh , alright then. My favourite suggestion will receive a prize of some sort culled from my own personal collection of stuff and also things. Actual prize to be determined but, rest assured, it will probably be fairly random. Please note that the judge's decision is purely subjective and also final. Judge's opinion can be swayed by promises of pies and/or alcohol.

My blog is in your hands...

Hi Baldy,

I am the dark queen of writing prompts.

So here you go.

1. Dancer Dave
2. Goblet of Forty Beetles
3. "I told you ten times not to do that, and now you're stuck like that."
4. 'Sitting on a Cold Stone'

Have fun!

I'll be waiting to see what you do with that. I have many others if that one won't do.

OK, here goes:

1. Cainam Of Myn (try the old trick of reading it backwards...)

2. A slightly soggy Black Pudding

3. "Get that bloody helicopter off my roof!"

4. "The unbearable Shite-ness Of Being"

Phew! Need a lie down now. Who needs psychiatry?
