Let's go with an old favourite this week. When you sign up, I'll assign you the first line of something I've read relatively recently (or at least pretended to have read). It could be a great classic of literature, something I have on my bookshelf or nerd trash pulled from the depths of Kindle Unlimited. You must use that line as the first line of your story but it won't count towards your wordcount. And to really spell it out, while the rest of your story should flow from that opening line you are not here to write fanfic or a retelling of the story it came from. That's because in addition, I'll assign a theme and a setting that you must use.


    [*]Opening Line: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
    [*]Theme: Treasure Hunt
    [*]Setting: Western

Get creative, get clever and above all be bold in how you interpret the three points you are given.

Maximum Wordcount: 1,500 words not including your assigned first line.
