Recipe for Writing Fun Challenge 5 EntryWe look forward to savoring everyone's creations a week from Monday -- now get cooking!
The following yields one (1) short story suitable for reading at home or while bored at work, and is simplicity itself to make. These stories keep well and are perfect for unexpected visitors to your web site.
1 attention-catching title
750–1250 assorted words, including:
nouns and pronouns
adverbs, to taste
1 very bad, unacknowledged pun
punctuation and line breaks as needed
In an empty file, combine words to form a narrative relating to the theme of food. If using a .txt file, take care that lines do not spill over the edge of the screen. Garnish with pun and place title at top. Serve by upload to the WFC5 site* no later than Monday, January 22, 24:00 GMT.** Can be made up to ten days in advance; best when served anonymously.
Note: Pay special attention to ingredient proportions. For best results, sift words well. Acknowledgement of pun will spoil flavour. Recipe does not double; use sequential batches to produce larger quantities.
* Tip o' the hat to 256 for hosting once again.
** In the US and Canada: 4:00 p.m. Pacific, 7:00 p.m. Eastern. You GMT+ folks do your own damn math, but your deadline's officially on Tuesday.
