    This is my first challenge, so here goes:

    I'm a huge fan of Bob Dylan and I'm always amazed of the stories he manages to tell in his songs and the many layers that are in these songs. I love the way he manages to paint a picture and make scenes come alive in ones head. I thought that this would make a perfect challenge for these boards

    Anyhoo, that's enought about Bob Dylan and here are the rules: I've got 25 excerpts from some of Bob Dylan's most famous songs and you pick one of them either by PM or posting here and I will PM you the excerpt. Some of the excerpts are a single line whilst others are up to four lines.

    You may do what you want with your quote. It can be the basis of the story or it can be a quote in the story or simply used as inspiration. The quote does not have to be included in the story, but it is perfectly acceptable if you want to include it.

    You may pick whatever genre you want to write in, you may write in any era and you may use any characters you want, canon, EU, OC's. All is fine.

    Once you have posted your story, come back here and give us a link and I'll include in the directory. When you post your story, it should have Bob Dylan quotations roulette in the heading.

    There is no time limit on this challenge, so take as much time as you want.

    And there's an extra gold star for those that manage to identify which Dylan song the excerpt is taken from [face_peace]

    If you have any question, please don't hesitate to PM me.

    Here are the numbers:

    Thank you for the really cool quote. Not only did it inspire me immediately, I found which song from which it was taken. :D One question, do I get yet another star if I can incorporate most of the rest of the song into the fiction? [face_devil]

    I know I could have PMed this question, but I wanted to up the thread. [face_mischief]

    Awesomness [face_peace] I'm glad you liked it

    One question, do I get yet another star if I can incorporate most of the rest of the song into the fiction?

    Gold stars were just an incentive but sure, that sounds like a really cool idea and I think you should go ahead with it. Let's say you get an extra gold star ;)

    VADERLVR: Nice to see the first fic up. I'm gonna read it right away and then add it to the directory!
