Rule of 3 (part 4 of 4)

This is the last installment for the Rule of 3, which I have enjoyed tremendously. I think I’ll be re-tackling this idea (short weekly folktale) starting next week and taking this version of the story of Prince Ivan from the beginning.

In the meantime, here are the links to the previous bits, the original rules (very important for the conclusion), and the prompts for this week:

Rule of 3 (part 3 of 4)

Here are the original rules at Damyanti’s place. VERY IMPORTANT! There are also links to all of the other writers taking part in this shared world of Renaissance. Hop over there (or to Stuart‘s, Lisa‘s, or J.C. Martin‘s) to see how the other folks are imagining this place.

Here is my part 1: Prince Ivan, the Grey Wolf, and the Firebird

Part 2: A Marvelous Box, A Quill, and A Sundial Made of Bones

The Water of Death, the Air of Life, and Something Like a Mayor (more…)

Rule of 3 (2 of 4)

Second installment. Here’s a link to Damyanti’s blog (one of the hosts), and in the meantime, here is the relevant prompt I used this week:

One of the characters is revealed to be not who he or she seems to be.

Word count: 560.

Character: Taregh

Rule of Three Blogfest (1 of 4)

The Rule of Three is a shared-world blogfest. Here’s the basic outline (follow the link for the details on the town itself):

The Rule of Three is a month-long fiction blogfest, where we’ve created a ‘world’, the town of Renaissance, and challenged you to create a story within it. The story will feature 3 characters of your creation, who will be showcased on your blog on 3 different Wednesdays, following the Rule of Three. The 4th Wednesday, we’ll have the culminating scene.

There are 69 participants in this one (as opposed to the nearly 300 (?) ) in Rachael Harrie’s Campaign Builder. But the word count is twice as high for the writing. At the link above, you can see the list of everyone who’s writing here and check out some of the other stories.

All of my folks look like they’re going to be outsiders to the town. The story takes place in the second decade of the 15th century.
