National_Harbor_6Okay, I’m sorry that this post is late. Yesterday was a good day, but it was also a long day. Anyway, 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.

Theme: Vacation

Genre: Historical, Science Fiction, Modern

Setting: Your setting is some kind of ‘island paradise.’ This could be the modern Caribbean or it could be some futuristic ‘space island’ resort with beaches, water, and a never ending view of the starts, or it could be something else entirely. It’s up to you.

Character Archetypes:

1) The Perky Receptionist

2) The Eternal Tourist

3) The Aristocrat

4) The Lottery Winner


1) A resort specific item (i.e. a special resort key, a service cart, etc. Something that you’d find on vacation, but nowhere else)

2) A dishtowel

3) A welcome packet with various reminders, requirements, and warnings
