Well, today is Titanic Remembrance Day, and although it’s not quite in the spirit of things, I thought we’d use characters inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio movies. This could be a fun one!
Also, the 17th is Bat Appreciation Day, so I’ve thrown a bat in there, too. 🙂
As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.
We spun, and our three elements are character: millionaire, setting: England, and genre: steam punk.
Feel free to write a story using those or spin a new set of your own. Be sure to include which three elements you’re using.
- stock broker
- dream hopper
- slave owner
- undercover cop

- US Marshall
- star-crossed lover

- diamond mine
- in a dream
