The Friday Challenge - 3/6/09

The entries received for the 2/27/09 Friday Challenge are:

Atown Andy: "Nihilists in Space, Chapter 1"

Henry: "Nihilists In Spaaaaaaaaaaaaace!"

Tom: "Hell"

Jamsco: "Old Story"

Arisia: "The Nihilist Ranger"

Ben-El: "Ex Nihilo Venit"

KTown: "Oneirovore, Act 1"

WaterBoy: "Veteran of the Psychic Wars"

As always, even if you haven't submitted an entry you're encouraged to read, comment on, and vote for your favorites, with the winner to be announced Sunday night.

And now without further ado, I turn the microphone over to last week's winner, torainfor.

Last night, I caught a cooking show called "Chopped" wherein the contestants create dishes out of random things like coconut, donuts, and old carburetors. In that spirit, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a story containing the following elements:

- A pair of slippers
- A flock of multi-colored birds
- A shooting star
- A deadline
- Your favorite grandparent*

(* If you don't have a favorite grandparent, you can use one of mine: a short, fiery sarcastic woman; a round German woman; a tall, quiet Irishman (really!); or a merchant marine.)

Stories will be judged on all the normal stuff (grammar, arc, character development, how well I catch your literary references, the amount and quality of chocolate chip cookies that arrive at my doorstep) as well as the integration of the aforementioned items.

You're writing for what's behind Door #3 because I think the goat behind Door #1 ate everything behind Door #2. Deadline is, as always, Thursday at midnight.

Good luck,
