The last time I was at the library, I picked up Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher in an effort to get the kiddo to read something new. Plus, Jim Butcher is one of my favorite authors. I told the kiddo the author was challenged to write something based on the ideas of Pokemon and the Roman legion – two things my kiddo loves.
On Monday night, I had a friend over while I was helping the kiddo get his reading log done. I told my friend the same story about how the book was written and she thought it was pretty neat. Somehow, the conversation turned into a challenge of our own.
Each of us now has to write a story in a week based on two ideas chosen by the others. I ended up with Clowns and Romance. This is how my thought process went after I was given my topics…. Clowns, really? I hate you guys. I hate clowns. Hey, maybe my romance can be about killing clowns. Alright! Let’s write!
I haven’t written the story yet. It will probably happen on Saturday or Friday night. Whenever I get the time to sit down and write. But I love the idea of throwing two completely different ideas together and getting a story out of them.
