Haven't heard of any other Group 8ers (drama - botanical garden - fish hook)... unless I missed a post, of course.

Anyone out there?

This is my first time ever doing something like this, so I'm not going into it with any high expectations. It's a fun challenge. 


If you don't know what a cybercafe is, you definitely are neither Asian, nor a gamer... I am officially jealous of our prompt, mind you. There's been real-life drama linked to cybercafes and gamers. Don't google too much on that topic; you'll lose faith in humanity.

I got drama too. Not my first choice, but not my last, either. In my head, I always equate it with "serious business"--I like to think of the the motives that criminals have in crime shows as a starting point, just with less...murder and stuff as the characters' way to work through it.

The other pieces of my prompt were botanical garden and fish hook...which seem like they should go better together.

My beta had a busy day, and didn't get back to me until 2.5 hours before the deadline (right as Game of Thrones was starting, for reference). I made a few adjustments based on his suggestions, and got it submitted with 20 minutes to spare.

Comedy isn't my forte, necessarily, but I really dig surreal/absurd humor, so I'm thinking about going in that direction.

Oh right on! I definitely took it in an absurd way--though I have only written one comedy piece before that relied largely on coffee puns...

Well well... Finally!

I'll be more than happy to give a Groupmate a read!

Best of luck in G8!

Anyone from Group 78? 
Genre: Sci-fi
Location: A man-made island
Object: A skeleton

I do not watch or read sci-fi at all... I think my piece turned out pretty alright though. I hope. I ended up taking concepts I have, regarding my major, and incorporating them into the story.

I got this one too and I'll say that breast milk was definitely a prompt I never would have expected. I hope yours turned out well! Curious to see what everyone came up with :)!
