Sam Jaffe (b. 1891) – “The Asphalt Jungle” (1950)

Chuck Norris (b. 1940) – ”Firewalker” (1986)

Katharine Houghton (b. 1945) – “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” (1967)

Sharon Stone (b. 1958) – “The Quick and The Dead” (1995)

Jon Hamm (b.1971) – “Minions” (2015)

Olivia Wilde (b. 1984) –  “The Lazarus Effect” (2015)

Our contest this week begins with THREE things: character, location and genre.

We spun, and our three elements are – character: Inventor, setting: Laboratory, and genre: Fable.


Write a story using those OR feel free to click on the “Spin!” button, and the slot machine will come up with a new set – you can keep clicking until you have a set of elements that inspires you.
