Weekend Assignment: Automaton

Another week finished and an entire weekend stretches ahead of us. All we need now is something to write about.

This weekend’s assignment takes its inspiration from the same automaton that inspired Brian Selznick to write The Invention of Hugo Cabret.  How appropriate this clockwork man is called the “Draughtsman-Writer.” Not only does he write poetry, he draws as well:

Your mission is to write a story with this or another automaton at the heart of it. History, horror, mystery, mainstream… choose whatever genre appeals to you the most.

The Show and Tell Challenge

Step right up and take the B&B Show and Tell Challenge! Here’s how: simply write your response to this assignment, post it on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post in the comments. It’s that simple!
