One Sentence at a Time
« on: August 12, 2019, 01:33:05 PM »
Here's a game I like to play with groups of friends. Someone writes a sentence on a sheet of paper, passes it over to the next person, and add another sentence to the story. There's a version where we would have to fold the paper so we add to the story blindly, except when we fold the paper in a way so that the last sentence is always showing. Since we're on a public forum, we'll forgive the whole "blind" factor.

So here's how we'll do it:
1. I'll start with a sentence that opens up a story.
2. Reply to the message. Copy and paste the story and add your own sentence to the end. (I'm sure it's pretty obvious that you would write a sentence that still continues the story.)
3. We'll just keep going as long as we can. Just remember to copy and paste every time in your own message.
4. Have fun, be creative, etc.

This looks like fun!

Mitch was tired of being dateless every Friday night.  But oh the agony of having to go out and spend time with people.

While he craved for companionship, the thought of all the time required to turn a relationship into a 'close' relationship seemed like an unscaleable wall.

He came home from work on a Friday night to find his roommate Harry watching "Sleepless in Seattle" on a movie date night of his own.

Recognizing his roommate's date his eyes widened in shock.
