Invaders from other planets, giant ants out in the desert, robots from the future, dinosaurs from beneath the sea… These wannabe conquerors travel here from outer space, journey through space and time, dig themselves out from under the ground, or rise up out of the waves onto the sand of a beach resort. All so different, yet all with the same goal. They are all planning to start something.

This week, we want YOU to start something, and we’re giving you the tools. Let’s show those giant worms and T-Rex’s how we get things rolling. Here are your choices:

  1. I crouched behind the counter trying not to make a sound.
  2. He tried to remember who had talked him into this.
  3. She had been warned, but now it was too late.
  4. It had just been here, and now we couldn’t find it.
