Word Press Every Day Inspiration Prompt Day 19: Invite a Guest.
Meet Robo Jr., the plot-generating game that uses a spinning wheel to create story plots. I found him at an estate sale last week, and it was pretty much love at first sight.
This game was invented back in the early 1930’s by Wycliffe A. Hill. It reflects the language and societal limitations/expectations of that time, but it’s still fun to play with.
For today’s challenge, I took Robo Jr. for a spin, and here is where we landed:
|PLACE||15||In a construction camp|
|OBSTACLE||8||One of them has a hidden past|
|PREDICAMENT||13||Evidence of great value is withheld from one or both|
|CRISIS||1||One of them is captured by kidnappers|
|CLIMAX||12||It develops that some character has been merely acting a part|
Want to play along? Study the outline as a whole, then write a brief synopsis (200 – 300 words), see what develops, go from there, and have fun!!!
