So this is a fun thing we did in my writer's group once and I thought we might give it a try. It's very much like the 3-word story thread, only the posts are a few sentences long. The trick is to read the previous 1 or 2 posts and then add your own to keep the story going. There is a catch however and this is the fun part: the characters aren't allowed to speak (i.e. you can't use dialogue). They have to do all of their communication through body language only. OK so here we go: Pushing the hood of her cloak back, Almea surveyed the sign over the door of the inn. The Traveller's Rest did not appear to be a restful place at all. Loud music and thumping from the other side of the door announced that the patrons were enjoying some rowdy entertainment. Peering carefully up and down the street, she realized that she had no choice but go inside. This was the only inn for many leagues. Grasping the thick bronze bar in front of her, she heaved open the oaken door.
