For this swap, you will have two tasks.

First, take a photo of something. Anything works, but try to make it interesting! You may use any type of camera, but please make sure your photo is professionally printed on photo paper in standard 4"x6" size.

Secondly, using your photo as a starting point, write a story. Be as creative as you'd like! Does the photo depict the setting? Is it something one of the characters encounters? Do they see it in a dream? Is it mentioned in one line and never referenced again? You are free to experiment with the format; do not feel boxed in by these suggestions. To keep time/effort relatively fair, though, make sure your story is at least a page and a half, front and back, of A4 paper.

You will have one partner and two weeks to get your things together. Newbies welcome with well filled out profiles, I will ban at my discretion. Also, due to the somewhat intensive nature of this swap, I WILL angel but ask a reasonable amount of time to do so.

Happy swapping!

I type short stories. Can you give me an estimate of word requirement for the "page and a half, front and back"?

If you are typing, I'd say 3/4 to 1 page would be sufficient. Sorry I didn't see your comment until now!
