Right, so if week one was to write the first part, and week two is to write the second part, guess what this week is?

Poorerdick started it. Alice Keyes continued it. I’m the setup man for the closer. This was a different kind of piece for me to work with, and I’m not entirely sure I did it justice. I felt there needed to be more conflict somehow, some indecision to set up the meaningful choice. Anyway, I am including both Part 1 and 2 here as well, but my piece kicks up with 3. I will note that the first author included some additional background material on how the story might go. I chose to not read it, and see where pantsing got me. All errors for part three remain my own.

I do so hope someone takes it home.

Okay, so last week I wrote Part I of what is supposed to be a four part story. and this week I pick someone elses’ and write a Part 2 (or what I like to refer to as the soggy middle). I went with Probably Falses’ start (which was untitled), and continue it below. For what it’s worth, as I write this, my Part I is, sadly, unclaimed.

So this week is a bit different. The idea is to write just the first part of a story, and three different people will continue it in the following weeks. Here’s my offering, which I do so dearly hope someone picks up and carries on. It is a a bit shy of the 1,000 word recommended limit, but I think it still works well as an opening. I’ll be sure to keep this post updated if someone else decides to keep it going.
