    I think that's as close to a compliment as we're ever likely to get.....lol

    That sounds good to me, or have 2 categories: one for singles and one for doubles (if you get enough entries anyway).
    I don't care about publishing my entry and the challenge of writing a story with someone else kinda sounds like fun actually.

    If I don't know what I'm writing about I don't know if I could co-op it. Also if it was a tag team thing I would probably disappoint and shame whoever is thick enough to want to work with me. So consider pairing with me an open invitation but don't complain if you get mediocrity because I already warned you.

    I suspect we all feel this way LY. All of us who posted entries in the last one made sure to put disclaimers about how bad our stories were at the top of the posts....lol.

    I guess it depends on how you define 'proper'.:)

    Unless I get somebody to projectile vomit with putrid prose. Which would actually be a fun fallback goal if things don't pan out for me as I get into the writing.

    Our combined writing would probably have a great duality to it at least. Maybe something like multiple narrators could work with this. Two arguing points of perspective would be funny. Or two separate points of view that when separate mean nothing but together form a greater whole, like a literary gestalt effect.

    Hailing from Michigan hockey brutality jokes are all too familiar.

    true dat :p

    Well that would be colourful! :)


    sounds great, I'm with you if partners are allowed and we get to pick our own :D

    @Druid: The pics were my idea but Tur wants to run this one so we'll have to see what kind of criteria he sets us...pics, no pics or something altogether different... should be interesting! :D

    Sooner I know the topic, the sooner I know if I can write on it at all.

    i would like to judge again :).

    jnk please don't be such a pessimist...you sound depressing saying such things...why were you disappointed by the last one? I liked it a lot, everyone had a totally different, interesting, very nice and creative story..
