Hello everyone! It's that time of year again! The rain is pouring down more often than not (at least here in WA), and come on, admit it--those outdoor activities just aren't as appealing, which means some of us have the tendency to get bored as we stare wistfully at the rainy weather out our window. It's rather depressing. Then again, I am reminded that every season offers special opportunities. Though we are less likely to venture outside, we are more likely to retreat to a warm corner of our house with a good story in hand. That's fun. Sort of.
Which gives me an idea: Instead of reading a good story, why don't we create one?
Last year we spun a fantastic tale of a wee lad named Tiny on this blog. You all pitched in, and we had one hilarious story on our hands by the time it was all said and done. (you can read the full post here:http://anextraordinaryexistence.blogspot.com/2013/12/i-need-your-help-blog-followers.html. I thought it would be fun to do that again! Who's with me?
The only rules to writing this story are as follows:
1. I get to start it (the story).
2. Try to keep it unified. Let's keep characters to a few, and events well coordinated (in other words, try to keep the story following some logical sequence). Having said that, you can still surprise us, it can take twists and turns, and it can definitely be funny!
3. Unique handicap: (This is a rule.) You can only add one sentence at a time (but you can add a short exclamation such as Oh! along with your sentence), and your sentence must start with the letter the last person's sentence ended with.
4. You can post as many times as you want, but you cannot post just after your last addition. You have to let there be 2 sentences in between each of your turns.
So, let's get started! I will type the first sentence in the comment section below. To add to the story, simply add your sentence below mine in the comment section. I am looking forward to writing with you all!
