They could be comic strips, flash animations if anyone can do them, audio or video. Or even just text if you can't be arsed doing anything else.

Joint efforts might be better, but solo projects would probably be quicker and more productive.

Anyone got any plot suggestions?

I can animate things in flash have the software and the skills, it'd be quicker if the basic drawings are done and the story written first though and audiofiles made for me to put alongside it if you want it to have sound.

This will be a competition and if there's at least two entries there will be a prize, the prize will depend on the number and quality of stories entered.

Well I've got a fantastic idea brewing in my head though it is quite elaborate and what not and it just clicked with me deciding to test out working according to the "heroes journey" of mythic story telling and traditional mythic archetypes in a story. I'll write a bit tonight as a rough draft and post it up, it'd be typical prose at the moment cos it's easiest to do but I reckon the story would lend itself for making into a more dramatic narrative telling.

Funnily enough I'm working on a comic strip at the moment.

I'm not doing it for Lovely though, it's my own project.

sounds vaguely like the story I'm plotting out in my head at the moment, you're not reading my mind are you? :chjinscratch:

Depends, my story isn't short anymore cos I have too many ideas to explore, though I suppose it could be linked short stories at a push but it involves three friends who fed up with the grey dreary life of the real world partake on a marvelous adventure to find and restore Lovely to it's former glory spurred on by the manic mutterings of ID and what not.

Within the context of the story I reimagine the kingdom of Lovely as something akin to Narnia or Fantasia.

This isn't going to be short either, it was originally going to be a trilogy, but it looks like by the end of the first book I'll have only introduced one of two of the central characters, so the full story could be about 6 books if I ever get round to writing it. It could even stretch to a Robert Jordanesque series of 12 books and have to be finished by another author after I die.

This story doesn't anything at all to do with the competition thing btw.

It's set 2000 years after a devastating nuclear war. The nuclear war may have been caused by the creator of the universe in order to set in motion a series of events to allow the heroes of the book to be able to save the world from the evil something which wants to destroy it. Or it may have been part of the evil somethings plan to destroy the world. But either way if it does alter anything in the story arc I haven't got far enough in my planning for it to make a difference yet

I have done a creative writing module for my open university degree. Not just any creative writing module though: ADVANCED creative writing. So I am now qualified to write a short story*

*I haven't had the final result yet, so I might not be qualified to write a short story after all.
