So, another Thursday approacheth, and Kate sitteth upon her well-padded cushion to compose another scintillating Mad Genius Club post. Only… Kate sayeth unto herself “What now?” Or words to that effect.
I actually had a post planned out and even pre-written, and then Rowena beat me to it. Meanwhile my brain is somewhere in the Caribbean partying, and it doesn’t even send a postcard. I’m horribly offended.
The fact is, it’s been a hellish year for me, and I can’t wait for it to be over. I’ve got one more workday this year (today), then a smidge over a week to recover for next year’s fun and games. Getting to the end of the work year has been something of a death march – a long, painful drag with no apparent end most of the time.
I swear, if I did to a character what’s landed on me this year, I’d have people telling me there’s no way all that crap happens to anyone all at once. Besides, the character would hunt me down and kill me. And probably resurrect me so he could hunt me down and kill me again.
So, instead of a sensible, thoughtful kind of post, you’ve got a bunch of more or less aimless rambling, some cute and funny (at least, I think they’re funny), and a challenge:
Go to the Random Plot Generator, pick one or more of the options in the list, and write a short summary of a story that uses it.
- Advice for the Evil Overlord:
- The gun turrets on my fortress will not rotate enough so that they may direct fire inward or at each other.
Story: The Mad Scientist and the Evil Overlord engage in a pitched battle over the design of the fortress gun turrets. While they are alternating between trying to kill each other and trying to sabotage the other’s plans, the World’s Luckiest Hero saunters in, rescues the Princess, and recruits all the Evil Overlord’s soldiers and the Mad Scientist’s minions.
(okay, it’s crap. But you get the idea)
