My favorite number. Woo hoo! But seriously, wow. I can’t believe we’re here already! I’ll admit, it’s a struggle for me, at times, due to my schedule. But you guys have been awesome, and your continued participation makes it all worthwhile. <3
I was going to do something different today, but seeing as how we lost yet another musical icon today (I’m utterly heartbroken), I thought maybe we would honor both Prince and David Bowie, two artists who were definitely ahead of their time.
As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.
We spun, and our three elements are character: astronaut, setting: (purple) rain, and genre: drama. This is also National Poetry Month, so for those of you who have vowed not to spin (you know who you are! lol), feel free to select a poem, instead, if you are so inclined.
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.
- pop/rock star
- goblin king
- store clerk
- a prince
- basketball player
- person wearing a beret
- someone with heterochromia
- little red Corvette
- Y2K (1999)
- outer space
- (purple) rain
- five and dime
- Gotham (NYC)
- football game
- an “erotic city”
- a treasure room
- steam punk
