Rory’s Story Cubes Challenge

A few weeks ago, I shared my new game “Rory’s Story Cubes” with my friends in the Blogosphere. Together we came up with some great stories and even got the attention of Rory’s Story Cubes themselves!

This week, I’ve posted a new Story Cube arrangement and added an optional challenge. Below I reposted my explanation of the Story Cube game and this week’s optional challenge.

“The game is made up of nine dice. Each die has a variety of pictures on it. You roll the dice and then you make up a story based on the order (and pictures) of how the dice fall. It’s kind of like a writing prompt, but I didn’t have much fun playing this game alone…. I’ve posted a cube arrangement below and invite anyone to make a funny or even serious short out of this. I hope this will be fun, I can’t wait to read what transpires.”

This week’s optional challenge: Try to use a haiku(s) in your story!!

I’ve posted a cube arrangement below and invite anyone to make a funny or even serious short out of this.  I hope this will be fun, I can’t wait to read what transpires.

This is the order in which they fell, beginning with the a flower, a hand, a shooting star, a house, a moon, a padlock, an arrow, and apple tree, and a smiley face. Please feel free to post any responses in the comment area :)

If you would like to get a better feel for what this is all about check out our last Story Cube challenge and responses.

    Hayley, here’s my first attempt, I LOVE the story cubes, what a great idea to use haiku’s although it always leads me to sound more cerebral than I probably am…
    the flower grew with
    the helping of many hands
    the shooting star flies
    and peacefulness comes
    over our house and garden
    the moon beams new light
    a locked door opens
    revealing a different path
    moving us forward
    with the roots of a
    tree holding us to the earth
    happiness is found
