I think so. My contribution: the main character should be a girl.
Ok, so I write a story on like word or something, about a female main character and a magic sword, and then i submit it for others to add on to? And it should be done in two weeks?
No, not to add on to. You simply write the entire thing (1500-3000 wordS) and post. After that we will elect someone else and tell them some guidelines, and give THEM 2 weeks until everyone has gone.
Maybe something like this should be ressurected?
Though I think monthly would be better.
On a given theme, containing certain designated elements.
And anyone can contribute a story. As long as it is in by the due date!
Im definitely in.
We need a list of people interested, and that are willing to write at least one story per month! (Which is fairly easy).
Dont want it dying in the arse like half of these kind of ideas.
And ideas for topics and certain lines or scenario's that must be included in the story.
So fire away people!
I'll go with it!
Righto, heres what I was thinking.
There would be six areas that need to be covered in your story.
2) Specific Obscure word
3) Specific sentence or phrase
4) Specific Location
5) Scecific minor character
6) An "oddity"
A member would each supply one of these criteria.
However, you will have to pick a different area each month to mix it up a bit.
Story would be due on the 30th of each month.
Remember, this is just an idea! Feel free to debate my point of view.
nb By specific, I mean whatever word etc is chosen, must turn up in the story somewhere (maybe in a different colour or something). It doesnt mean the story needs to be set in that location, or revolve around that character, or sentence, if you do not wish it too.
I hope that makes sense!
Please let me know what you think!
I like those ones BFD. I ahve an obscure word for the first one:
It sounds good! I always new you were a genius BFD!
He's just rezzing Tur's idea and making it easier to think of ideas by making us all come up with one part of it.
I still think he's a genius
I take it that by your replies you are down with it?
Right thats obscure word covered! Next!
Disport. to divert or amuse (oneself).
2. to display (oneself) in a sportive manner: The picnickers disported themselves merrily on the beach.
–verb (used without object) 3. to divert oneself; sport.
–noun 4. diversion; amusement; play; sport
Thanks for the sarcastic kudos.
Yeah, I suppose it is Tur idea, props to him.
I just wanted to mix it up a bit.
Does anyone else find Master Wraths avvy creepy??
He looks all pedo!
Somewhat creepy XD
I just realised this should be a Monthly writing circle (MWC) rather than weekly (WWC)!
After we figure out whats going on and whose down with it we can sort that out.
Maybe it should be Writers M.C (for monthly circle or motorcycle club!).
Up to you guys!
Monthly sounds best with all the people who have work and school.
I like your criteria, BFD, but perhaps for the first couple of cycles it could be a specific genre and one word concept, eg:
Genre - fantasy
Concept - "conspiracy"
That may seem too broad and not particularly challenging, but it may attract more writers initially and let everyone settle into the task more easily. You could introduce more criteria later on.
Western, Post Apoc.
or a mix of both.
Point taken! Yes that is a valid idea to let us ease into it.
Anyone else agree.
I did wonder if the first genre choice should be Fantasy, seeing as this is tff!
Time to hash it out people.
Shall we make the first one more generalised?
I think yes.
But I like that western/post apoc idea as well.
might need a poll!
Separate names with a comma.
