Never Ending Story

Story telling is the basis of most writing. We want you to help us create the longest, most fantastical story. Read what has been already submitted and then let your imagination soar! No age limit, but Remember: This is a Family Event. Visit ocaf.info/write-on/ and share your inspirations.
And don’t forget the 6 WORD STORY CONTEST.
Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway bet his literary friends that he could write an entire story in six words. The group put $10.00 each into the pot, then Hemingway wrote, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
NOW, it is your turn! Everyone is invited to try their hand. Come up with your best bite-sized story. Prizes for those judged best.
Deadline January 7. Submit via ocaf.info/write-on/
