  1. PLOT CHALLENGE!

    A PLOT CHALLENGE is where you are given a word, a phrase, a sentence, or a setting and you have to come up with a plot idea that is inspired by those words!

    The object is to THINK FAST and share the first ideas that come to mind. It's an exercise in quick creative thinking. You can do this challenge any time. Or multiple times!

    To Participate: THINK FAST. Don't waste any time. The first idea(s) that comes to mind, write it down and post it! You are to write down a plot premise or basic idea. This isn't about writing scenes, this is about writing up a setting!

    NOTE: If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a roleplay, make sure you ask permission or give credit to the muse.

    Challenge Phrase: "I think I'd have a heart attack."
     
  2. At the McFinnegan family reunion, Grandpa Festus was telling the grandchildren about the war. The story was traumatic and he mentioned if he ever heard another explosion he'd have a heart attack. Cue the explosion, which also destroyed the phone lines and wireless towers. Now the family must rush to the nearest hospital, which is nearly 30 miles away, and they're low on gas.
     
  3. Late at night the McGregor clan was sitting at the main house around the large family table sharing stories about their challenges and trials. Each member trying to one up the other When finally Momma says "If Ya'll tell one more story about ya'll nearing death I'm gonna have a heart attack. Now off to bed with ya!" When they finally fall asleep the rival clan Donals makes its first strike for the night.
