    Well what I am thinking is a few things. When we try to do our compilation story of the three of us, we can either have 3 different characters and find a way to intertwine them, or make one character and each do pieces for them one at a time. If we do the second one we need to discuss what kind of person it is, and I think it should be some kind of person we aren't use to writing about, that way we make ourselves get out of our comfort zone. We also need to discuss kind of the basic setting and plot. If you have any ideas let me know.

    ok well that sounds good, but I like the formor better lol. If we choose that one we need to come up with a bio for them and need to remember what the other characters did and is doing right now. It sounds hard but I think we can do it.

    Ok cool, we'll ask him, either way is cool with me, and he might even have a totally separate idea.

    hey guys. sorry, i just got home from finals. i like the 3 person one as well, because then when they intertwine, each can bring a unique-ness of themselves to the others.

    Ok cool, then the next thing we need to figure out is a basic setting and plot, nothing to specific, because that is what our job will be as we write.

    ok I was thinking...how will we keep ourselves from not writing what the other person is writing lol. Another idea is that we all start the story as 3 different parts. And in the middle of the book,or around there, all of our characters meet and then comes the real story.

    yea that could work and we can brainstorm ideas for our specific characters and share them, that way there wont be two people each writing about the same thing

    lol yeah that would be odd if we made a character with some of the same qualities.

    yeah I hope he is. I might not be on all weekend though. I am spending Friday and Saturday with my Grandma, sort of a Christmas thing for her since she has to work on christmas. I will be on Sunday though. So we need to decide this thing quick so I can start writing this thing.

    yeah it was perfectly understandable,the writer keeps things hidden that isn't as important to the plot,thus making a more realistic approach

    yay. also dont feel pressured about this weekend. seeing as though we havent got too many ideas and storyline things out yet, maybe it would be better to give this project some time before beginning it. perhaps if u do writing this weekend, maybe it should be a short story or something not-related to the project. OR it could just be a brainstorm of different project ideas

    like we have been doing for the past 20 minutes XD. I am a bit saddened though. i understand that we need to keep up with real life and all, but none of us seem to be on all at once
