Exercise 2

Below are fifteen randomly generated rooms from a website that appears to be named Serendipity (though its web address — http://nine.frenchboys.net/ — seems a tad more provocative). Your assignment is to create a story inside one of these rooms. The story should be about 750 words, and by the end of the story we should know not simply the building but also the town or city in which this room is located. Also, at least three people must, at some point in the story, be inside this room, though not necessarily at the same time. Due: Monday, September 5, 11:59 p.m.

Exercise 1

Due: Midnight, Monday, August 29 in the Exercise 1 folder on Google Docs.
