So. Things are looking pretty good. In two hours we’ve picked a genre, period, and characters out of a hat (cup); come up with a basic story; and written a logline. We’ve also eaten dinner (v important) and are still friends. Good start.
Funnily enough, even though this was all basically random, we’re working with stock characters that I used in my last project (a writer and an adventurer) and a story (cross-country odyssey) that Abigail used in hers. Go figure.
Next up — plot points!
