This blog's about writing, right?
OK, three easy rules:
1. Five sentences at a time, no more--no less.
2. No back-to-back posts--wait for someone to post a paragraph before you go again.
3. As much as it's possible, build upon what's been written. In other words, make this a coherent story--but one that takes unexpected twists and turns.
Anyone can participate. Here we go:
It was a dark and stormy night (ha!) that greeted Jane as she stepped off the intergalactic transport onto an empty landing platform. Turbid clouds of black and grey stalked across an emerald sky, obscuring the abandoned structures of Cirellus Iv's largest city.
What killed these people?
She grabbed her bag and took a step foreward, but her foot struck something. A black chest sat in the middle of the platform, a note pinned to its lid.
