Put Yourself In The Picture!


I’ll be away for the next 3 weeks.  While I’m gone, I’d like you to write me a story.  I want it to begin in the picture above with you passing through the red door (in either direction, your choice.)  Once you’ve done that (and, of course, you’ll have to tell us the details, you travel here:"River Road" NJ (WTC in bg)

or here:

Tineghir Morocco

or maybe even here:

Broadway from 96th Street

only to find yourself confronting her:

Out of nowhere she took my hand and led me down the street, Bhutan

or him:

Marrakesh souk

or them:

The Met

Write me a story in 200 words or less, making yourself the central character and following the outline above.  Spelling, grammar and vocabulary do not count!  Interesting counts!  Engaging counts!  Fun counts–unless it’s dramatic or really serious.  Satirical always counts–except when you’re being dramatic, etc.
