Introducing “Story time!”


Let’s try to be adult about this.

At our local library where I grew up, they had a “Story Day” every week where we kids would gather around and listen raptly to the reading of a great book. Along with suggestions made in the “What About Fridays” post, that prompted me to start “Story Time” every Thursday here on HeroMachine.com. When the next “Choose Your Own Adventure” book comes in, I’ll do those as well, but I wanted to take on Kaldath’s suggestion that we also try out the “Three Word Story” game.

Here are the rules:

  1. Copy and paste what the previous player has put, then add three relevant words that add to the story.
  2. You can only post three words after this post (punctuation doesn’t count as a word, but use it properly and wisely).
  3. You may only post on this thread once.

That’s it! At the end of the day we should have a story. I’ll start.
