    I'm just generous and I expect to leave from my deployment with at least 20k in the bank .

    I kind of wanted to stay away from the forums and it's members as subject matter, personally... Unless everyone is sold on that idea that is.

    Yeah, I think a more general topic would be better. I've seen "random word" as popular prompts on the internets. But a quote could be good as well. Or a poem, or a picture, or just any sort of "theme", I think allows creativity well.

    So would a theme be like a word?

    I would be interested. That doesn't mean I would actually do it though. Depends on my mood and how busy I am.

    oh i like this idea...especially the one about a picture. that could be very cool. i may even be inspired...probably not because i can't really write...but maybe??

    I like this idea. I think that the more definition of theme the better, though. It makes it easier to judge, and working within well-defined parameters really makes you dig deep and work those creative muscles. IMO it would be too hard to judge a heavy drama against a lighthearted romance or a silly comedy.

    How does the theme of "Suffering" sound? Is that too broad or is that the sort of thing you guys are looking for?

    Possible theme: Unreliable narrator.

    More of an element than a theme, but...
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.
