This prompt requires at least 4 writers and 4 hats (or hat substitutes)
On slips of paper each writer should contribute:
- 3 genres
- 3 character tropes
- 3 places
- 3 objects
All options should be placed into respective hats. (genre hat, character hat, place hat, object hat) and each writer will pull out 1 slip of paper from each hat. Set a timer or watch a clock for 10 minutes. Everyone starts a story that includes the options they just pulled from the hats. At the end of 10 minutes, pass the stories to the left and continue your neighbor’s story, but add your options into the story.
