Well, here we are. You've arrived at this page by either accident or design--maybe someone sent you this link, maybe you found it somewhere in the wilds of the internet, maybe I've even sent it to you. However you got it, here you are, so let me tell you a story.
First, however, I'll need three things from you: two words, and six dollars.
In return you'll receive a hand-typed story, three to five sentences long. A peek into a world built around your two words. A real thing, on real paper, sent through physical space from wherever I'm living, to wherever you're living. You'll receive something created just for you. A single unique thing that is yours and yours alone.
Why six dollars? It feels right. For six-dollars you choose two words, send them out into the ether and wait. For the price of a drink you'll never remember, or a magazine that you'll eventually throw away, you're giving yourself the gift of anticipation, the gift of an artifact.
Why two words? I've found that a two word prompt goes a long way; sometimes dictating tone, sometimes mood, but always a varied sense of inspiration. Two words: Key, clearing. Rifle, parakeet. Waffle, sparrow. Two words contain multitudes.
Every story will be typed using a Smith-Corona Super G, onto _______ paper. Every story will be numbered.
There will be imperfections, and mysteries, and very rarely endings, but this isn't about receiving another perfectly marketed and packaged product. This is about an extended experience, and a story where every word is written just for you.
