You Are A Short Story, He Was A Novel You are a short story. You start in the middle maybe, and you don’t have a long word count. A few pages. A short arc. A gimmick. Some terse resolution. You’re certainly not a novel. You make me feel like I am also a short story to you. I know this, because he was a novel. You are more like: writing in the lines, in the margins, in the sides of notebooks. My short story is about a young girl, too young, who wasn’t ready to read everything that was handed to her, everything she bought from miles of books in a dusty, old used book store, everything she unknowingly, naively checked out of the library. He was a novel, sure.

Espionage Chasing Game Espionage requires at least two (possibly more) teams of three people each, plus at least one referee. The most unusual part of the game is that the players don't know which team they are on. Teams change with each round. The game is traditionally played at night in a home and the surrounding yard. At the beginning, before the first round, players are taken around and shown a large number of places (locations) and objects. Locations include some inside the house and some outside. When a round starts, one or more kids are chosen to be the referees (which can be more fun than being on the teams). Each team has three roles. The mate knows two locations, the meeting place and the goal, but not which is which. The yeoman knows an object (the totem), the password, and the jail(s) of the other team(s). The purpose of the game is to get the totem to the goal. This is a game with many opportunities for winning by deluding the other team into thinking you are part of their team.

Orange Drive by Mark Lester One of the greatest difficulties in short film storytelling is the question of scale. Hitchcock once said that dramatically, feature films are a lot closer to short stories than novels. So where the hell does that put short films? Are they like micro-short stories? A single scene? How much story can you fit into a short film? Everyone has seen the short film with nineteen characters and seven half-finished plot arcs. Fortunately we contemporary human beings are not the first people to ask these questions. The unity of action: a play should have one main action that it follows, with no or few subplots.The unity of place: a play should cover a single physical space and should not attempt to compress geography, nor should the stage represent more than one place.The unity of time: the action in a play should take place over no more than 24 hours. This allows a lot of leeway in terms of story.

Multiplayer 4 risky places to swipe your debit card - Yahoo! Canada Finance Would you give a thief direct access to your checking account? No? Unfortunately, you may be doing just that by regularly using your debit card. Debit cards may look identical to credit cards, but there's one key difference. With credit cards, users who spot fraudulent charges on their bill can simply decline the charges and not pay the bill. Because of that, even clear-cut cases of fraud where victims are protected from liability by consumer protection laws can cause significant hardship, says Frank Abagnale, a secure-document consultant in Washington, D.C. He cites the example of the The TJX Companies Inc.' While debit card fraud is always a possibility, being careful where you use it can help keep your checking account balance out of the hands of criminals. 1. The idea that outdoor ATMs are among the most dangerous places to use a debit card seems a little bit absurd. "Any transaction you do outdoors at an open ATM is going to be higher risk exposure," McGoey says. 2.

Invented Card Games This section of the card games site is devoted to new games played with existing cards. The idea is to provide a forum for card game inventors to publish their ideas, and to try out and comment on each other's games. Traditional card games will not be found here, but in the main body of the site (see for example the alphabetical index). New games which require a special pack of cards designed for that game, which you have to buy from the publisher, will also not be found here. Most of the games on this page have been contributed by their inventors. If you would like to contribute a game of your own to this page, or publish a comment, variation or improvement on one of the games here, you can send me your contribution by e-mail. The games are at present listed in alphabetical order (with numbers at the end). Aardvark Game [archive copy] A game for friends, created by James Quin, Adam Tilghman, Luke Weisman and Renée Sharp.
