As mentioned in my last post, I am taking part in a really fun challenge for 2012 that Darcy has created for us and explained on her blog. You can read about it HERE. The idea is based on Nick Bantock's Griffin and Sabine series of books where mysterious characters correspond.
One of the first things we need to do is create our own story and characters.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
The story begins…
#1 is Sabrina. She lives in a small town on the Oregon Coast but does not spend much time there. Sabrina is a photo journalist and travels the world photographing interesting locations for the various travel magazines she freelances for. But she uses a P O Box in Oregon as her mailing address and has friends manage her mail and forward it to her.
Her address is:
P O Box 251
Rockaway Beach OR 93137
#2 is Declan. It is thought that Declan lives in London. However he is somewhat secretive. As the saying goes – he could tell us where he lives and what he does but then he’d have to kill us as we’d know too much. So, better not to know, don’t you agree? His mailing address seems to indicate he works for the British Government. Perhaps he is some sort of spy? Is there a real life James Bond? And is he it? Wonder if we’ll ever know…
His address is:
Declan McCabe 73179
c/o The O.I.C.
Number 17 ½ Downing Street
As the story begins, Sabrina has received a small package in the mail with a strange London address. What the heck is “The O.I.C.???
Inside the package she finds a packet of photographs and negatives she had lost on her last adventure. They were lost somewhere in South Africa. She had been quite upset she had not been able to locate them as the negatives are irreplaceable. Without them she would not be paid for her trip all over South Africa. So you can imagine how relieved and grateful she was to find them in the mail!
