Here's An Idea...

(Picture from here.)

I've constantly been suggesting a drinking game for writers based on the concept of The Six-Word Story. So far, no takers yet.

Essentially, you get two or more people around a table with a bottle of alcohol (could be tequila, vodka, whiskey or rum) at the center and they offer six-word stories. Those who can't come up with such stories or suggest lousy stories-- as per majority's ruling-- have to drink a shot. Obviously, the more you offer lousy stories, the more you drink. And the more you drink, the possibility that you'll offer more lousy stories.

Another variation is that whenever someone offers a good story, everyone drinks. The above conclusion obviously follows.

And who says writers can't be fun people?
