I, sadly, can’t write poems that will leave everyone gobsmacked. I enjoy writing stories; I’m sure some of you like prose more than poetry as well. Well, I’m going to make your day if you do. I’m starting a  round-robin story; that  means you should all add lines (yes, as much or as little as you want. I would recommend writing more than a line everyone.) to the story to make it successful. Try it; make the story as grim, wacky, dramatic, etc… as possible. Later, we can post the entire story and see how great it is.

Here we go:

Marybelle huffed in annoyance as she hiked up the never ending material of her white gown. Blocks ago, she had thrown  her matching heels away. Grumbling under her breath, she crossed the street to the bus stop. A man walking by stared at her oddly.

“What? You’ve never seen a lady walking in her wedding dress?” She shouted at him. Eyes widening, he crossed the street hastily.

“Jerk,” she muttered under her breath and rudely gestured at his back. So, what if she was walking barefooted in her  wedding gown? Who the hell cared if her hair was no longer in a stylish high bun and that her mascara was dripping down her face?

Marybelle silently cursed at the people who stared at her like a zoo animal as they passed by. Finally, the bus came. Patiently, she waited for people to get off and ignored their curious faces.  Grabbing her ballooning skirts, Marybelle stepped into the bus.

Well? Why don’t you all continue and let’s see where this goes?
