Microcosms 92

Hi all! And welcome to Microcosms 92!

Today is Mad Hatter Day! Most of our options include people who wear hats or hat-like objects. (For you MC Colonists, you might remember this being similar to one of our original contests.)

Special challenge: In the spirit of the day, create something silly. It may or may not help you in the contest. I’m not the judge. 🙂

I’ve include the “Your Choice” option once again. If you do use/choose the “Your Choice” option, please specify what it is that you’ve chosen.



(If YOU have an idea for a future contest and would like to be guest host, please contact us.)


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

We spun, and our three elements are – character: Explorer, setting: Museum, and genre: Memoir.

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 – character, setting and genre. You can keep clicking until you have a set of elements that inspires you.

*** HEY! Remember to include which THREE elements you’re using AND a title for your entry ***
