So I’m putting this in the “Worlds Building” section although its not a story is a bunch of scribbles of thoughts I’ve been having.
For people who don’t know world building is the process of designing a world. (r/Worldbuilding or Artifexian) However world building shows up in any creative work to some degree. World building defines the characters, the settings, the emotions, the story, just about everything in a creative work. That’s not to say that the work has to be a game or a novel with a define story it could also be a DnD campaign where the story comes from interacting with the environments or it can even be a collection of fake sports some creates in there room for fun. They are all forms of world building.
Netflix’s political thriller, House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey premiered its 5 season two days ago. With out spoiling much–and if you haven’t seen it give it a watch but keep in mind season 3 is a transition–there comes a point where they begin talking about the Vice Presidency.
Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon treated fans to a nice April Fools when they jokingly announced the premiere of the long awaited Rick and Morty season 3. Only it wasn’t a joke. Adult Swim is live streaming the first episode on a continuous loop until Thursday 4/6/17 as a kind reverse-rick-roll reverse-April Fools joke. So approximately every 24 minutes starting from 5:00 pm yesterday the episode restarts on the Adult Swim website.
Without giving to much away an important gag in the episode involved Szechuan Dipping Sauce; a 1998 promotional Mulan themed McNugget sauce released by the McDonald corporation.
This is an idea that I had but whether it takes off or not is on you, reader. I am going to write a paragraph for a story then you comment with the next paragraph in the story. From there other commentators can either continue the story by commenting in your thread or can start their own thread with their own story.
It has been a big year. I started to seriously get into writing taking the ideas from my scratch books to actual stories. I started this blog and you wonderful people quickly took to my work. I learned about poetry and story structure. I finished 14 books on writing from “Avoiding Bad Beginnings” to “Self-Editing and Review.” I took to trying out new post types like POP ANAL and Personal Posts.
