A sentence from chapter one of Cream Auditoriums, product of the new Let’s Make a Story project over at Airforce Joyride (home to Greying Ghost and Corduroy Mtn.).

The project is a user generated exquisite corpse created by sentence submissions. “If you can string along a few words into a sentence, send it in and we’ll post em,”  they’ve stated on their blog. “You don’t have to be a big fancy writer-type. Any and everyone can help!” Get involved here (contributors remain anonymous).
