    Okay, this is inspired by the fact that I'm at a public kiosk which kicks me off every 10 minutes. The challenge is to do a vignette in 10 minutes to the best of your ability, to make it coherent, and to have fun doing it. This can be anything from a serious piece to just something to keep your writing juices going.

    This week's theme is to write about mind-tricks.

    It's a good idea but how do you know people are going to be telling the truth.

    We dont; but if someone is dishonest, they're only fooling themselves. No one cares, we're just here for entertaining stories.

    I'll be starting mine in five minutes, after I finish eating.

    Awesome. This is like drabbles, but with a time limit.

    You should create threads in the respective for this so that all of the entries are in one place and don't flood the boards, making it difficult for the indexers. :D

    Wow! Ten minutes flies and I've got a couple of paragraphs and few clips of dialogue. I guess I now know where all my time goes. Some of you guys bleed dialogue. ;) I'm anxious to read the others.

    Awesome idea for the challenge!

    what can I say, almost all my stories are told through dialouge, it's just my bag, baby!

    Ideas for future challenges: sans dialogue/dialogue only.
    :D Dialogue only would kick my butt, but I'd be back for the most compelling description of a household appliance challenge.

    I finished mine - it's in the Saga thread. Like I said, I managed to do it in 11 minutes, not 10. Hopefully Ish will show mercy :D

    Oh, sounds like fun. I'll have to try it on a day when I've got some creative juices. They seem to have abandoned me today.

    Man, that's harder than it looks. I have something, but I'm not sure how much sense it makes in the time I had to write it. I guess I'll go put it in the Before thread, though...

    Did it. I put one up on the Beyond the Saga board. That was kind of hard. 10 minutes really goes by once you get going. Good challenge!

    So I haven't quite grasped the 'making a link look like the title of my fic' concept. I'm just going to put a plain old link to this challenge.

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=20873887&start=20875627]Ten Minutes[/link]

    There it is . . . boring I know but hey how else will you read my lovely little veggie. I must say I'm not the world?s fastest writer so this caused a little stress as I reached the ten-minute limit.


    [face_good_luck]


    [Edit - I would like to thank spiritgurl for bringing me out of the stone age and into the 21st century by helping me with my link problem. I know feel like I am cool enough for these boards [face_batting] ]
