What happens when 26 people write a short story on the same topic? You get the Blog Fiction Project, of course.
The basic idea is we give the same story starter idea to all the participants who then have about a month and a half to write the story.
The story idea last time involved getting stopped by the police with something in your trunk, and the stories were very entertaining. At any rate, I decided to give this a try. I’m not used to short stories. I’ve never written one, and for the last several looooong weeks, I’ve not gotten anywhere on either of my novels, so I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to churn out anything that looked at all good. But I’m finished, and the stories are supposed to be up today, so I will post it shortly. Below you’ll find the list of all the participating authors.
Your goal is to write a 3,000 word story involving an object that eventually appears in a police auction. If you’ve ever been to or seen a police auction you’ll know the object can be anything. Your job is to tell the story of how the object gets to be in the police auction.
