Story Cubes: Tell me a story… (Contest)
Monday, August 2nd, 2021

UPDATE: The winner is…pc!

IMG_8426I bought this little brainstorming tool years ago at some writers’ conference. “Story Cubes” is a brainstorming game. You roll the dice and whatever pictures appear face up are the ones you use to riff off a story. Do any of these symbols tell you anything? You can pick some or use all of them.

To make this fun, I’ll offer a prize—a $5 Amazon gift card—good for purchasing one or two stories…

Have fun with this! Don’t overthink! Here’s the roll…

    Friday comes along and I’m wondering, what to do with the first Saturday off? I think I will hit the lake to catch some fish. I’ll need some help. Hey John, I need a hand. Needing to get my boat lifted unto the the truck. Thought we can drink a few beers and maybe a catch a thing or two. Okay, I’ll see you in the morning, I’ve got to catch a few z’s.

    I went to Vegas to see a magic show, but sadly it put me to sleep.

    The princess fell asleep in her beautiful bed in her condo at the top of the tallest building in town. She questioned again why the building was shaped like a pyramid. So strange! She woke suddenly upon hearing a strange noise. At the foot of her bed was a set of scales with a fish on both sides. She grabbed her wand with her left hand while pushing up from the bed ready for a fight. (Boy is that bad!)

    I awoke with a question in my head. I got out of bed and found I left a footprint when my fish bowl had been knocked over. The fish though was still alive so I saved her. It was only right.

    In my dream I was walking near the pyramids and I saw a guy steal a fish. Of course the justice system caught him and they took his hand. They asked him why he stole and he said he was bad at magic.

    I read the dice as:
    Stop the insanity, keep your feet grounded but let your subconscious flow to the magical possibilities. Balance will come and everything will turn out right.
