View Full Version : Round Robin.

I am posting this in OP because, while somewhat writerly, it's more about randomness and fun, and is likely to break into a conversation of some sort. And also, nobody in their right mind will probably ever take this seriously.

Round Robin instructions:

Read the last post in the thread. Write the NEXT sentence to the story. Be as crazy as you want. It doesn't have to make sense.

You may post unlimited sentences, just not two in a row.

You pay only post ONE SENTENCE at a time... but there is no word count limit.

You may not edit your sentence, even if there is a typo, grammatical error, or you typed "fi tit" instead of "fit it."

If you want to say something that is not part of the story, type it [in brackets so that we know it is not part of the story, just your incessant rambling :P]

If two people happen to post a sentence at the same time that directly contradict, the next person to post must acknowledge both sentences as part of the story.

If someone kills a character, remember ghosts have not been entirely disproven, and anyone who denies the existence of zombies has been tricked by the government.

Be nice and have fun!

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a turtle named Delores who kept a condom under her shell.

She dreamed of a pale manboy called Martin who had never returned.

Martin was supposed to be returning her SASEs.

Lauren, have you ever been to the Writing Exercises and Prompts forum (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=33)? Your thread might be a better fit for that board. Office Party usually moves too fast to sustain writing exercises for very long.

We'll try it here for a while, but if it sputters we'll move it to the other board.

A fish named SilverKing questioned the turtle, but said he'd at least give her a chance, if she'd let him borrow the condom.

But on the rare occasions when she did, he stuffed it with random scraps of newspaper the size of currency and sometimes even small bundles of Monopoly money.

The result was a beautifully-sculpted pair of paper breasts.
