Let's start today's blog with random promo material and move on to my personal autumn challenge for readers and writers. The leaves are falling, the holidays have begun with yesterday's spooktacular, (I've even overheard talk about hanging Xmas lights already -- Oy!) so it's time to use that seasonal energy for all it's worth.
First off, I'm part of the month long Autumn Harvest Web Hunt contest at Night Owl Reviews starting today. Be part of a scavanger hunt to find unique hidden graphics on participating web sites. It runs through the end of November. Hunt and win some prizes. Hey, you need to be collecting gifts, right?
Now that we've finished the promotional part of the post, I wanted to throw up a cool autumn challenge. I've posted three random images I've collected. Let's see who can propose the most creative story idea taken from a combination of all of the pictures. I find the third to be the most inspirational.
Here's my attempt:
It's Halloween evening, and Kurt Stuart wakes on a Hollywood beach with no memory. Except that he's been hit by lightning. Surrounding him is a group of unclothed men who inform him he is a member of a strange male nudist cult, and that he is in charge of an ancient lifesized statue of a horse that must be returned to the gods of Hollywood. Kurt must race to return the statue before the stroke of midnight.
Be creative! I dare you.
