Day 23 – Build a story

Make a story one line at a time with at least one other person. This can be done in person, over the phone, through video chat or text message. Pick someone to go first and then take turns building upon each other. Sometimes the hardest part of this challenge is coming up with the first line so there are some examples below. You’ll have to pay attention to what the person before you said in order for your line to make sense.

It might be fun if someone is able to write the story as you go along, and then afterwards you can draw scenes from your story to complete your book. After the story has ended, talk about what surprised you and what you liked about the story.

Examples of first lines:

Once upon a time, there was a ___________ who wished for ________.
There once was a _________ (animal) who wanted a _____________.
I remember the day when I met ______________.
___________ (name) didn’t let on that they were scared of _________.
____________ enjoyed playing practical jokes.
