Here's how the game works:
I'll pick five objects. The next writer, brave soul that s/he is, will write a five-sentence opening scene using all of the objects, to start the 'novel.' Then the next writer adds five more sentences, and so on, until the 'novel' is 'finished.' The object of the game is to make the next writer's job as challenging as possible.
Ready? Here are the objects:
- a dead body (natch), you pick the specs
- a car battery
- a library book, "The Varieties of Religious Experience" by William James
- a pair of womens' shoes that does not fit the dead body
- a live python
