Forge Your Own Chain

This week’s challenge has two parts.  You will start by creating the constraints you’ll have to work with later.  To achieve this, you will forge a chain.

Chains may not be liberating but they can make things more interesting.  (Image is in the public domain.)

Your chain will consist of ten questions and ten answers.  Start the chain with a question of your choice and the second link will answer it.  (Tip: complete sentences will be easier to handle.)  The third link will be a new question that would generate the answer that appeared above it and the fourth link will be a new answer for the question immediately above it.  Keep going until you have ten questions and ten answers.

For example:

Why do birds fly south for the winter?

It’s warmer in the south.

Why is it better to live in Florida than Michigan?

The senior dating scene is much more lively.

What is something that Justin Bieber has never said in his life?

I just finished reading a book.

Why do you look so happy?

My sister is getting married.

Why are your parents angry?

I got an F on my chemistry test last week.

Did that night of drinking have any consequences?

My liver will never be the same.

Do you like the new cookbook I bought you?

It looks beautiful on my bookshelf.

Where did you put your soccer trophy?

It’s in the garage with the rest of the fake plastic stuff.

Where did you park your Kia?

I found a very expensive parking lot.

Did you see anything memorable while you were downtown?

The homeless people are really depressing.

Once you’ve finished that, you’ll write the main portion of your post.  The first question in your chain will be the post title.  The fifth answer will be the first sentence you write.  The tenth answer will be the last sentence in your post.  You may write as much or as little as you like but the post must be coherent.

Compose and publish your response to this prompt on your own blog.  Be sure to include a link to this post so that a pingback will appear here, thereby allowing other participants to discover your work.  Please be patient if your pingback does not appear immediately; I am not at my computer 24/7 and I have to approve all pingbacks.  For this reason, using the bcandelabra tag may be advisable.
