In the Eye of the Beholder

Eye-witness accounts are notoriously unreliable – people see what they want to see.

Write three tellings of the same incident, as expressed by three spectators – the incident can be everyday or exceptional.

One version a week for three weeks, each version 100 – 250 words.

Fire, Earth, Air, Water

Project Spectrum Elements by LollyKnit on Flickr

Tell us a story in four parts:

  • Fire,
  • Earth,
  • Air,
  • Water.

The whole story should be about 1,000 words (completed over four weeks), but each piece can be as long or as short as you like.
You can use the elements in any order, but must use them all.

Hey, Bartender

It’s been a rough day.
I need me a drink.
Something… with a kick.
Hey, bartender, what’s your signature drink?
What goes in it? Yeah, make me one of those.
How the hell did you come up with that anyway?

Manager says you’ve got one week.
And keep it short: name, recipe, and 100 words for the story.

The Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, that is.
UFOs? Icebergs? Mermaids?
Share with us a story of a vessel, sea or sky, that was lost in the Bermuda Triangle.
Schlock preferred.

Our sources suggest that the story would take two weeks, and be about 250 words long.
