The third alphabet is C, so lilian_cho would start the game on the C square.
e.g. +3, Y +2, Harry Potter
+5, J +2, Original (Winter's Stone)
e.g. Total points: 19. Complete a +3 prompt.
This brings you to 22 points. At this point you may switch fandoms/worlds. Good Omens to Merlin; LotR to original; original to Bleach, etc.
Player's choice Box A North/Up Noun Verb Adjective/Adverb Sea +2 Calm +1 Vast +2 Bullet +2 Haze +3 Tangerine +1
Your drabble uses "calm" as an adjective: a vast, calm sea. You earn 4 points instead of 5 points.
e.g. Character: Beautiful +1, Prompt: Blink +2
You can write about a beautiful character who blinks, but you can either:
a) earn 1 point and move forward 1 square, OR
b) earn 2 points and move forward 2 squares.
"Genre" = the classifications you would find in a bookstore.
So "Genre: Young Adult" means write something that would be classified as a Young Adult book/ a book with young adults as audience.
"Character: Young Adult" means one of your characters have to be a young adult.
"Prompt: Young Adult" would be more open to interpretation. You may simply incorporate the phrase in your snippet/drabble. You may treat it as a theme and not include the phrase at all in your drabble. One of your characters may be a young adult. And so on.
e.g. Prompt: Unresolved sexual tension +3
If you write a snippet/drabble, go forward 3 squares.
If you don't, go backward 3 squares.
