THUNDERDOME LOSER


Well Huzzah I didn't suck enough to get called out.

(let the calling out begin).

Just one question- can we rewrite our own stories as well, maybe get a crit and compare? Because I really liked the concept for my original story, and I'd like to expand it.

Tyrannosaurus Wins Again

aka



Today I stumbled upon carts and carts full of books that the library literally couldn’t give away. First they had a book sale. Then they reduced the price of the books that were left. Then they just said, “gently caress it. Take ‘em.” And still there were books that nobody wanted. Pitiful, lonely books that had been sitting out there for days.

I saw this and it made me sad. I mean, somebody (several somebodies, really) put forth a lot of effort to tell those stories nobody wanted to read. lovely effort, sure, but effort all the same.

So you all are going to make me not sad, okay?

When you sign up I’m going to give you one of these unwanted books. You’re gonna gut the insides, throw out all the useless garbage, and fill it with new goodness. You must get rid of the title! Nothing is based on the title! The title doomed the first work! You gotta keep the cover, though, because we don’t judge books by their covers. So. This means you need to make sure the cover still fits your new piece of brilliant fiction. This is your prompt. Please don’t gently caress this up.

Oh, you have a theme, too. Because evidently you need one. The theme is “discovery.” Enjoy!

EDIT: And regarding the rewrite, how closely should we hew to the original? Because I definitely want to change a few things.

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Yes OK I will do this thing. I will write a story.

If it helps, I'm totally down with extending the loserbrawl.

And I'm not saying I purposefully wrote an awful entry in order to trap CommissarMega into this exact situation... But that is a possibility.
