Week 3 Creativity Challenge:
Once again - well done! I will continue to post examples of your creative work here.
This week we are kicking it up with a daily challenge. The Improv focus for this week is ADVANCING THE STORY.
The same presentation rules apply - you may tell your story in whichever medium you choose. Only this week we are adding to the inspiration and story one day at a time. Here we go:
Go outside and walk around. Take a photo of something you find interesting
outside that you think no one else may see where they are (so trees, rocks, and grass are right out!)
The assignment was to create a story in which an unusual object in your room was used as transportation, an ingredient, or clothing. Scroll down to check out some of last week's projects!
Make up a story incorporating the following line into the beginning, middle, or end of the story:
“If ______ hadn’t traded _______ for _______, this never would have happened!”

Today, I had to go to work. My parents couldn’t take me, so I decided to call an Uber. Turns out they are closed due to Coronavirus. There was no way for me to get to work, so I had to walk a whole six hours to work. If Brandon hadn’t traded my car for a bowling ball, this would’ve never happened. -
The two figures crept stealthily onto the palace graveyard. The one said, “Let’s just try to dig it up. It’s almost dark, so if we just wait for the right timing-”
“We can’t open the grave, it would be a capital offense,” he interjected.
“You’re the King, no one would care! The authorities never follow their own rules,” the Queen countered.
“Fine, but we should make this quick. I don’t want anyone to get suspicious about his death,” the King said.
The two began digging up the Prince’s grave, but soon learned the task would be too much for them.
The King finally spat out, “I can’t do this any longer! It was a simple misunderstanding. When it said to be buried with his prized watch, I thought it meant his childhood watch.”
“Of all the ways you could have messed up the plan... Hello Kitty?! The maids will notice that his nice watch is still in the box. They also know that the Prince’s will said to bury him with the watch. If they open the casket to put the correct watch in, they will realize what we did to him.”
“I didn’t want to go through with the plan in the first place!”
“If you hadn’t traded the Prince’s watch for a Hello Kitty watch, this never would have happened!” The Queen paused. “His nonstop whistling was bothering you just as much as it was bothering me, don’t lie. I knew this social isolation was a bad idea.”
