Call for Collaborators

Hello to all of you kind and fellow bloggers from my current vacation escape; London.

I have some exciting news!

My friend Denny and I recently had so much fun with a short story collaboration that we’ve decided to embark upon a similar project, and we want others to join in our fun.

Here’s the basic idea:  We’re going to produce a collaborative short story of no more than 3,000 words, and we each need a quartet of Bloggers to join us. Denny will write the first part of the story, and I will write the last part.  After Denny starts it, he will email it to his first volunteer, who will add to it then email it to the 2nd volunteer, and so on until the 8th volunteer passes it on to me.  After I finish it, I’ll email it to Denny for editing; then, he’ll return it to me for a final proofread.  When it’s finished & polished, we’ll email it to all 8 volunteers, and we’ll each post the whole story on our own blog with shout-outs & pingbacks to all contributors.

The Rules are as follows:

 

1) 300 words max per participant.

2) The protagonist must survive and show some sign of growth or change.

3) The basic world established by the first part of the story must be preserved, but participants are encouraged to be boldly creative within that world.

4) We ask that each participant take no more than 5 business days to complete their part & pass on the developing story.

Now all we need is you! And you, and you, and you!  If you’re interested in joining me & Denny on this wild & wacky journey, you can indicate your interest in my ‘Comments’ section below or you can email me at em@earthlybrain.com.  I’ll take the first four brave souls who express interest.  Make sure you include your email address!

Ready?  Writers take your marks… And…  Go!

  1. Exciting! I was happy to “participate” in the little sick day story… granted, I kind of went out of turn and did my own thing, but if there’s to be an order then perhaps I will.. like… not ruin it?… No… No, I will find a way to ruin it, I’m sure…. but, I would still love to try anyway!! Still need volunteers?
