                Has it ever happened to you? When a story begins with an amazing and fantastic expository that gets you lost in the mythical world, then a burst of conflict and it just ends? It leaves you think ‘what. The. Hell.’ And wonder who wrote this so you can go into their house and cram all their TP inside the toilet resovoir? It is most disappointing, no? OR what about when you DO play a game with an amazing story, and you just wish there  was a way to contribute to this fictional universe? I challenge you: MAKE your setting come true. WRITE what you wish to have the story develop into.
                What if you have the perfect setting, that you want developed into a story? Please do describe it, maybe someone will make something of it one day…
                Okay, ill start with painting a setting.
I found this image online AFTER i wrote this little piece
I stared at the rearview mirror in the car. Behind is nothing. Miles on miles of black pavement which stretches on into the arid wasteland. Funny, I came from nowhere, heading towards who-knows-where. I need hope.  Eventually I noticed the constant pinging to remind me that my door is still open, allowing the last of my comforts of air conditioning to escape forever. Trying to peer through the dust-swept windows, I do my best to trace the line of the skeletons of skyscrapers before me, but it is not how I last remembered. At last I start to get out of the car, minding not to touch the baking metal on my door. The City lays before, and the only sign of life is the withering trees lining the avenue. Looking around, there appears to be a sizeable bluff on my right, and a brown haze far off to my left; another storm cell is coming. Walking towards the former citadel of socialites, the first building you see is a letdown: a hydrogen station, and over the price marquee hung ‘out of service’. Hopefully someone left their car in a parking garage here. Hopefully someone decided to stay, just for someone like me.

This is crude, sets a mood and tone, but overall it paints a picture of where you are: in some deserted desert city on a post- apocalyptic world. Once you have a setting in your head, what you describe simply ebbs out into this magnificent setting anyone could suspend their belief and really get into. Now, we already know that the best have mastered this art: now they must overcome the next obstacle that most of them fail to deliver on- creating the story in this fantasy that we love so much! Unfortunately, I’ve only had yesterday to write this down, so no elaborate story here.…
                Anyway, this is your part- inspire yourself; Finish what was left off. Make your own story. The best artists are never paid to do their best, that’s why there’s so much potential out there; Imagination is simply itching for you to fill in the blanks, to give it a greater reason than just a whimsical thought. Someone out there is bound to appreciate what you create, what you sketch, draw and write. Already there are communities, fansites and clubs that crave and enjoy this kind of stuff! Everyone always has something to share…
