Time for round 10!

For this swap, you will write a piece of micro-fiction (aim for 250-300 words) and send it to one partner in any postal mail form of your choosing (postcard, letter, note card, typed, ...).

What will your micro-fiction piece be about? That's where the MYSTERY comes in!

I have three lists of nine words. The first list is objects (like cookie or candle). The second list is people (like uncle or bride). The third list is locations (like desert or post office). If you sign up for this swap, you must post in the swap comments a three digit number (using digits 1-9, no zeros). So, for example, if you pick 783 then the 7 corresponds to the 7th item on the object list, the 8 corresponds to the 8th item on the people list, and the 3 corresponds to the 3rd item on the location list.

On the day I assign partners for this swap, I will email or PM you the three mystery words your micro-fiction piece needs to be about! Closer to the send by date, I will also email or PM you the three mystery words your partner's piece needs to be about to make sure no one switches out a word. :)

To make it a mystery for me too, I will use a random number generator to see which words I get!

FOR A FIVE RATING: Send one 250-300 (ish) word fiction piece written by you and based on your assigned three mystery words to one partner.

THE DETAILS: All Write Now group standards apply. No recent and/or unexplained 1s and 3s.
