2. You may write in any format you see fit (fiction, non-fiction, poem, song, script, etc.)
3. Post your piece of writing in the comments section of the website to be considered for the ‘Best Of’ section.
There’s an improvisation game we’re playing where one team attempts to solve a central conflict and the other team attempts to develop the conflict– There is an actor on stage, and each team takes it in turn to suggest what happens next in the story.
Actor-“Help I’m lost in the woods!”
1-And then you remember you have a map
2-And then the wind gusts the map out of your hand
1-And then a bird catches it in its beak and flies it back to your hand…
and so it goes
For today’s prompt – I will begin the comments with a statement that establishes a central conflict and then each comment will alternate between attempting to help solve the conflict or heightening the conflict. (Basically, you read all the comments to follow the flow of the story and then add the appropriate type of comment based on whoever went last.)
