I offer to my Tolkien forum-fellows a "brain-storm" challenge to our imagination, called the WHAT IF...? game. The rules are simple: 1. Each "What if..?" - topic will last for a week, maximum two, and then a new one will be offered. I guess a week will be enough for all of us to speculate on the topic offered. 2. The posts may be in ANY form you wish - simply stating your opinion, or changing quotes from the books in a way they'd fit your fantasy - story, or a fiction-story (be brief!), or even post a drawing or a picture (not too large!) that could demonstrate your vision on the topic ... Most of the topics, of course, inspire creative writing in prose, poetry and or/and other ways of expressing the artist in us! 3. Within the time of an on-going topic, please, do not interrupt it by starting another topic(s), for this will stir the order. Everyone, who has a "fresh" suggestion about a new "What if..."-topic, please post your suggestions in the "Workbook" - thread . ENJOY ! ------------------- The previous "What if?.." - games have been archived HERE. Everyone is welcome to read those wonderful stories/discussions etc. in order to best understand what a WIG is!
