Hey guys! :D One of my goals this summer is to write a short story every week, and I need your help!

I used to brag that my imagination was so great that I could come up with a good story plot out of just three words, and now I'd like to test that theory. So I'm gonna ask for one person to give me a three word plot a week, and I'll do my best to write a short story in a week using those three words. Now anyone can give me the words, and they can be any random words that you chose (within appropriate limits of course). I will except words only once a week, on Saturday (or Sunday for you Australians ;)), and I can only do one story a week, so only one set of words that day. If you have a good set of three words that you'd like to try out, but someone has already given a set of words for that week, you can come back next week to post them. So only one request per week.

If all goes well, I will have the story written and posted by Friday the following week, and then start over Saturday with a new set of words. The actual story will not be posted here, in this topic, I will have it in it's appropriate forum, but I will give you a link here.

So, that's my Summer writing challenge! :D Are you guys willing to help?

You aren't an official writer unless you're at least slightly mad.

Alright guys, so notice that my post says "if all goes well, I will have the story written and posted by Friday", well obviously all did not go well :( I've just been so darn busy! So, I guess I can't take any words today, because I haven't finished my first story. But I'm going to try this week! (which might be difficult since it's 4th of July week).
Before I sigh off, I have one more excuse: I can't write short stories! I'm so used to writing novels and it's hard! I keep wanting to add to much detail. But I wont give up!

So, sorry about the delay 5horses, I will get it written and posted as soon as possible.
