AGROTHARN vs. the Story Cubes of Doom

This month I'm giving myself a little exercise: writing an episode in my AGROTHARN the Interstellar Semi-Barbarian serial every day using story cubes. This is an activity I used to have my creative writing students do, and they really enjoyed it. Appearing on the Alternate Futures podcast back in April reminded me how much fun—and how much of a challenge—it can be to include four random things in a story; but thanks to that experience, I came up with a crazy new character I never would have met otherwise.

You can check out the first six episodes right here, and if you're interested in trying story cubes with your own writing, here are a few online versions I'm using: Story DiceStorygen, Story Constructor.
