Story Continuation Challenge

I am considering hosting a ‘story continuation’ challenge.

Each week, there would be a one line beginning provided with an open ending. The challenge would be to continue the story by writing the subsequent line, in the comments.

The 2-line story may take whatever shape the participants (you!) choose to give it.

The challenge would remain open until the time the next week’s prompt is shared.

You would even be free to use these comments as a prompt to develop a new story of your own and publish it on your own blog. (Would request you to mention relevant credits and include ping-backs, of course.)

What do you think of this idea? Does it seem interesting to you? Will you participate in a challenge like this?

      Yes, and I am already trying to come up with the sentence prompts. I’m excited about this. Hope you will take part. πŸ™‚

    Sounds interesting. Is there a sentence limitation on the story continued in the comments?

    • Wandering Soul

      A couple of sentences should be okay. But more than that would mean it has the potential to develop as a short story, and hence deserves longer space and better treatment as an independent post. What do you think?

        That sounds good. Maybe you could say ‘complete the story in 3 sentences.’

          That’s a great suggestion. πŸ™‚ Thanks.

    I’m interested. Sure I couldn’t resist putting in my two cents in the form of a sentence.

    Sounds like fun. Count me in. Question. What if you receive 25 one or two-liners for the same prompt?

      Awesome! I’m planning to post the first prompt on Monday.
      That would be great! The more the merrier, as that would mean 24 different stories for each participant to read πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

    Should be good, I tried doing something similar on an old blog I had, but my readership wasn’t that high so no one got involved! It’ll be great to read people’s contributions and get everyone’s imagination going.
