Leslie's Omnibus

Take Three

About a year ago, Miss Nancy and I had a discussion about reviving Chrissy's 1,000 Word Story challenges... with a twist.

Here's the challenge: I send you three sentences. You write 1,000 words in any format you choose -- short story, essay, poetry, screenplay, news article. You must use all three sentences. The twist is that you can use them anywhere you want in the story, as long as all three sentences appear somewhere within your 1,000 words.

I'll select four writers at a time, posting the challenge sentences on Friday, with the 1,000 words due the following Friday.

I enjoyed my own first 1,000 words, and figured it was time to revive the exercise.

I've thrown this out to several bloggers of extraordinary talent, some who've participated before and some who haven't. But that doesn't mean you can't participate, too. Email me at omnibus-dot-driver-at-gmail-dot-com if you're interested. I think it'll be fun.

Anybody up for a challenge?


Eric's in!
Nancy's in!
Barrie's in! (I am nothing, if not persistent.)
Joanie's on board!
And a second Joanie says "Yes!"
Whoohoo! Elisson boarded the bus!
Rosie is on board!
El Cap has run up a signal flag!


Update II:

I've got another little twist to throw in at the very end, but only for those who participate. And it involves turning the tables on me. C'mon. You know you want to make my life difficult.
