Animals, an amoeba and Arabian minarets — can’t wait to see the stories that come out of this week’s challenge.
Last week I was making the rounds wearing my Author Jennie hat in both Massachusetts and Virginia, and I spoke to a lot of people about Rory’s Story Cubes and the Story Cubes Challenge. So now it’s time for Round 4 of the challenge. Like Round 3, this one involves three cubes each from the original set, Actions and Voyages.
If you’re new to the challenge, here’s the scoop: I post a photo of nine Story Cubes on Wednesday morning. You write a story using all nine cubes. If you want to post a link (or the story itself) in comments, go for it! If you’d rather keep it to yourself, that’s fine, too. Teachers and librarians, I’ve done some workshops recently on writing using the cubes, and if you’re close enough for me to get to, I’m happy to do something for your facility. Just email me and we can talk details.
And now, on to the prompt:
The ray gun is back. Sure hope this doesn’t become this round’s version of the pyramid from last round — the cube that kept turning up.
Hmmmm… A sheriff’s star, a treasure chest and… a credit card? This week’s challenge responses ought to be interesting.
