Sometimes its good to keep trying :). Perseverance can bring about some pretty awesome results. Anyway, on an different subject entirely, I have a story challenge, and it’s time for my favorite story challenge. I’m going to give you a series of criteria including genre, theme, some character archetypes, etc. Your job is to write a story that includes all of the features required in the challenge. If you intend to post it here, please keep it short. However, the complexity of this challenge often requires a longer story.
Genre: Fantasy, Modern, Steampunk, or Science Fiction
Setting: Your setting is a small peaceful community. This could be a small halfling village, a modern pacifist nation, or the final offensive against a futuristic race on the verge of extinction.
