Make A Story Game - One Sentence At A Time

Post#1 » Sat Jul 09, 2011 3:28 am

Okay, this is blatantly stolen from god knows how many other forums, but whatever.

The idea is to build a story, one sentence at a time. There are only two simple rules for the game.

1.)Proper writing technique using the English language. If a new paragraph is warranted, start a new paragraph. Use proper punctuation, grammar ect. This does not mean I want the thread to turn into a grammar Nazi base of operations! I will proofread and edit common punctuation and grammar mistakes myself. Do not change any mistakes yourself! Copy, paste and add your sentence! This is to eliminate confusion and fighting. I will be the only person to modify posts when I add a sentence, that way everyone can tell me if I've buggered things and I can fix it, and the story progresses with as few hitches as possible.

2.) While you are free to write anything you want, it has to contribute to the ongoing story without directly altering the previous sentences facts. You can indirectly alter the facts of the previous sentence though. For example, if someone writes 'Bob is walking to the store to get some milk', the next sentence cannot be 'Bob was walking home from the store.', but it could be 'On the way to the store, Bob was attacked by a roving band of transsexual nymphomaniacs, and returned home to put ice on his sore testicles'.

I'm not calling these rules per se, but common sense and/or courtesy. If you don't comply with these your contribution will be ignored. If you don't agree, don't post! You must copy and paste the last post into your current post, and add your sentence to the end of it. The link for page one (where these rules are) should be at the top of every post. Do not cut it out! Off topic banter is not acceptable, except to point out issues involving rule #1. This is to be double quoted at the end of your post, and copied with all future posts until I make the necessary amendments. There are plenty of threads to talk on, so keep this one on topic.

Now let's make a story!

This is the story you were not expecting to read today, but is likely to be the most important story you, or anyone, will possibly ever read.

Ah yea, the warning signs.. those events that occur in your surroundings metaphoricaly clarifying your innermost mindstruggles, coming from out of your past whilst taking you into your future choices.

Well, I could have not put that hollowed out lime on the cat's head for starters, but then I wouldn't have discovered the microchip buried in the cat's claw after it had been surgically removed from my forehead.
