The Strangeness of Numbers

It's time for you to actually get everything from the world, and you are going to search all the elements of your story out. You will get the setting, place, characters, and theme. All you need to do is to follow the steps below:

  1. Look at the time right now. This will be your year setting. For instance, if it is 8:45 in the morning, you will set your work in the year 845. However, if it is 8:45 in the evening, then according to military time, it is 2045 – your work will therefore be set in the year 2045.

  2. What day is it today? Monday? Wednesday? Friday? Whatever the day is, let it be the name of your main character.

  3. Look up the meaning of your first name. Whatever it is, let it be your character's main characteristic.

  4. Look up the meaning of the first name of the person whom you love the most right now. Let that be your character's end goal, whatever the meaning of the name is.

  5. What are you wearing right now? Let that be your character's costume.

Ready? You need to write a story of about 8000 words or less. You also have to use all the elements that you found in the search. When you are done, provide a link to your story, or post it in the Comments section.

Good luck, happy searching, and happy writing!
