Unintentional Novel Title Slam!

Jen over at Unedited discovered an awesome way to make up a story!  She found it over at Tahereh and Christina Lee's blogs.  Jen called it A Story out of Novels. 

Colene over at The Journey and I teamed up to do our own today!  Her fingers actually challenged mine to a duel: seriously.  Not her- her fingers.  They wrote it on their own accord.  So be kind to me- her story is probably way more profound and awesome than mine.

So, basically the challenge is to make up a story out of your book titles!  Make it short and sweet (and definitely profound...and a little dramatic)!

I'm going to make mine from my TBR pile (in random order):

This is So Not Happening, she thought.  Too many Lies, during a Twenty Boy Summer Blue Bloods poured from their veins.  Hunger blurred her vision .  She laughed, Carter Finally Gets It.  The Insatiable girl drank him in the Firelight.

What story from your own pile can you come up with?

Now that's a clever idea! With a big enough library, one could win at NaNo that way.

I'm really enjoying these stories around the blogosphere. Yours is really awesome. :D

"The Medium of the Video Game is Kids' Stuff," she said. "All we are doing is Raising Consumers and forcing our Children and Consumer Culture down people with other beliefs throats! The problem with American Consumer Society is that there is too much of a focus on His and Hers!"

The only way I could fit those boring book titles was into a rant that only a crazy mom could come up with. It's not great, but I participated! Hey, maybe I could just make that paragraph into my research question.

Alex- Now, that's a lot of books!

Emy- me too! I just had to do one today after I saw the others'.

Justin- hahaha- love it. You could start a debate with that one.

LOL! Very entertaining :O)

Angela Darling said...

hahaha... I love that!

Colene Murphy said...

Oh! I totally think you just owned me! Good job! (I love So Not Happening!!)

Brad Jaeger said...

I'll have to give that a shot. I'm a new follower, on account of ^ Colene there.

Wow, you girlz are good! I wish I had the energy. Struggling through the end of Nano with another cold. Two colds for Nano - fun times. It's the SAME one too. Totally saving this idea for when I'm feeling better, though.

Lydia Kang said...

That was so clever! I never thought of doing that. My TBR pile is scattered throughout the house so I can't make a reasonable sentence right now!

Oooh, this looks like so much fun! *runs off to procrastinate--uhmmm, do this*

Love this! I just posted on Colene's blog about my TBR "pile" being too scattered, hehe. Maybe I'll have to gather them up to play!

Amie Kaufman said...

You guys are awesome, I love this! It really conjures up an image, too--you've made a writing prompt out of your TBR books!

Donea Lee said...

Oooh, I like yours! I'm still working on mine. Ok, well...I'm still thinking about it! :) I've got books scattered around here somewhere...

"The Challenge and Spirituality of Catholic Social Teaching" encourages us to live with "Compassion" to notice the "Credible Signs of Christ Alive" within our world. The "Cloud of Witnesses" that went before us reminds us to ask the hard questions…to challenge "The Powers that Be"…to ensure we are "Rising to Common Ground." During this holiday season do we need to ask ourselves "How Much is Enough?" We are reminded it is by God’s "Amazing Grace" and "Solidarity Will Transform the World."

Nice one! I'm going to try to make my own... I'm already thinking of clever combinations. Hmmm...
