This challenge is a self centered, dual purpose prompt. For one, I want Len to get his book published so that I have a reference to go to when I'm not sure of my grammar. Grammar for creative writing is much different that the grammar used in my profession. Actually, after learning what little I have learned here on Gather, I cringe when I read a legal document.
The other reason is because Magic wants out of his box and he's full of mischief.
I challenge you to take the beginning story which I wrote below, fix my grammar (or change it altogether) and finish the gull durned story or poem.
I have a feeling that some of you gents will get really carried away with this one. Feel free to flag your story if need be.
