I need your help to write a really bad story!


It's obvious at this point that I'm a bad movie nerd. Perhaps something more than that. But this past week as I was reflecting on the blog and how pleased I am with it, I was drawn to its roots. It's very reason for existing in the first place.

Part of me wants to be a writer. Like a novel type writer. So I started this blog to write short stories or anthologies or whatever and just put them out there on the internet. I figured if I had an audience then I could better discipline myself to actually get shit done. Well...I've done none of these things. Of all the things I have done though, I am very happy with. I love nerdin' out with everyone on horrible movies but next week I'm going to take a step back from that and kick in something different. I'm certain if there's something REALLY AMAZING...

(LIKE THIS!)



Then obviously I'm going to blog about it. But next week I'm going to try an experiment in writing. I'm quite sure it's been done before but I've never done it so lets throw some shit against the wall and see what sticks. And this is where you come in.

I need 4 things from you: a HERO, a SETTING, a WEAPON, and a VILLIAN. The hero can be a badass, or someone out of their mind, or a total nerd that ends up with the girl. Setting...the future, the old west, dimension 221-G, kentucky, wherever! The weapon...something simple like an axe or something more elaborate like a laser chainsaw. And the bad guy...or guys....anything from a super villian, to aliens, to demons, to just some asshole that works at Wal-Mart, whatever. The choice is yours!

It's not that I don't have any creativity to create these things on my own but I'm writing this for you and I want to see what you have in mind, what my target audience would like to see. As of now, I'm going to let this fester over the weekend and then get started Sunday or Monday. I plan to have part 1 done on Tuesday, and part 2 on Friday. Part 1 will probably end openly and you can decide the fate of the hero. etc. etc. We'll see, I have no fucking clue what's going to happen.

So please post in the comments section and let me know what you think. What should I write about? We all know it's going to be awesomely bad, but that's the point of Mr. Gable's Reality is it not? Only the best of the bad reside here, now please help me...make it worse.

    I'm thinking an emergency call center. "The people ment to help protect you are in danger". Hero= call center rep (i'd prefer it to be a girl), a true unsung, unappreciated hero
    Setting= call center. cold, dark, gloomy. full of lifeless souls.
    Weapon = office supplies
    Villian = my manager . . . opps, i mean, this isn't my real life. actually i think an irate customer would be fun.

    good luck! i can't wait for my half of our big payday

    SETTING: The Ice Capades Holiday Show

    WEAPON: Magma cannon

    VILLAIN: A sentient zamboni that runs on vodka and requires the blood of orphans for lubrication of its moving parts.

    You're welcome : )
