So, with this in mind, Rudi, you are released from your homework.  And this is so the rest of us can individually do homework assignments.<br /><br />This is your homework for the next meeting:<br /><br />You will write a 2,500 word story or beginning of a story using the elements I supply you with below. .  It cannot be tongue in cheek.  It must be serious.  Failure to complete this means you must pay for the meal &amp; drinks of the person to your left at the next meeting.  Failure to show up for the next meeting (unless in the case of medical or personal emergency) means you must write 5,000 words and pay for the meal and drinks of the persons to your left and right.  No shit.<br /><br />So, here are your assignments:<br /><br />TIM ? You must write a science fiction story about cybernetic beagles<br /><br />CHRIS ? You must write a fantasy story about a dragon.<br /><br />JAMIE ? You must write a steampunk story about Queen Victoria and her servant Robert Brown.<br /><br />CINDY ? You must write a cyberpunk story involving the Ark of The Covenant.<br /><br />RUDI ? You must write a golden age sci-fi story about Amazon women in a crisis.  You must also suggest a topic for me to write on.<br /><br />Anyone else new to the group who wants to come to this meeting should email me and get a topic to write on.  <br /><br />Enjoy your writing, folks!  See you in February!<br /><br />- CHANG<br />
