    Professor Literati?s Christmas Roulette Challenge:

    Holiday greetings, gentle beings and welcome to the first annual Christmas Roulette Challenge. This year?s selections are taken from the classic fictional work of Charles Dickens?, ?A Christmas Carol.?

    Posting a number between 1 and 15 will afford you a line from ?A Christmas Carol.? These lines will be supplied to you by PM.

    From there, I invite your muse to guide you in writing a vignette or very short story in whatever genre and timeframe you desire, as long as the setting is placed in the Star Wars holiday mode of Winter Solstice. Just remember to use your line somewhere in your story, highlighted in red. But that?s not all.

    Somewhere in your vignette or short story you must include a character with the name, Tiny Tim. You must also include a ghost in your story. How you choose to interpret these last two requirements is up to you.

    Slots will be filled on a first come-first serve basis. Please remember to post a link in this thread to your story and list Professor_Literati?s Christmas Roulette Challenge in the Author?s notes section.

    Stories may be posted starting on December 15, but the absolute last day for posting will be December 25, 2008.

    We will be using the following outline for these stories:

    ??and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge.?
