Dragon Names and Writing Games ~ Reader Interactive
Summer's here and I thought for a bit of fun, we could write a story together. Each week I'll post a bit of the story and you'll leave comments about where you think the story should go. For those of you who read Amber West's blog, yep, I totally borrowed this idea from her. You can read all of her installments here.
What do we need to get started? A hero and a heroine. In the comments, leave your choice for their names. If you think they are human, werewolves, or a pelican, leave that, too.
Let's make this totally wild and say the adventure will be beyond the boundaries of any one genre. Meaning, we can have shape shifters, magic, a new world, it can be from 1920's New York, or modern day Paris. The story can go wherever we want it to go. It's up to you and me.
Where do you think the story should start? In space? On a boat? Just please, don't say in a fake hospital room with the hero having amnesia. Seriously.
Once we get the characters and location, I'll write up the beginning of the tale and next week you'll help me decide something else for the story. I hope you'll enjoy this as much as I know I will.
The second thing I need your help with is…
Laird Sapir has been hard at work creating a new website for me (which is fabulous, by the way!), and she created the sweetest little teacup dragon as my logo/mascot. The only thing is, the dragon needs a name!
I've thought about it until my mind went fuzzy, but just can't come up with the right name. SO, I'm asking for you to help me name the teacup dragon. I'll keep the naming open until the website is ready to go live, then I'll put all the names to a vote. You'll get to vote on your favorite from all the entries!
Want to meet her? Here she is, the sweetest little teacup dragon I've ever seen.
She looks great as either her pink and sparkly self, or in silhouette. I need to have this put on a t-shirt or something. Don't you think? Love her!
What name would you give her? I need your help! I know I've tasked you with a lot this week, but I have every faith that you'll come through.
I look forward to reading your name choices for the dragon, and your story ideas. The first installment of our tale will be June 4th. Let the fun begin!
