A Cool Thing We’re Gonna Do Yes

SO, I had a skype chat with this amazing friend of mine a few days ago, and we had an idea FOR A REALLY COOL THING WE COULD POST ABOUT ON EACH OTHER’s BLOGS – still need to think about the logistics of it.

It’s going to be a monthly thing – or every two months, and we need your help.

We’re going to post a bit of writing each time. And what we need your help with is the ideas for the story – a prompt, if you would.

Should we do one big story, or little short stories? If we did a huge story, we’d write one chapter at a time but if we did short stories, we’d write in the same prompt.

We might use one idea, or combine some of the ideas you come up with. And the ideas you come up with could be anything – from a quote to a vague idea of the story to a character, to ANYTHING. It’s your choice.

So, what should we do?

If you haven’t checked out my friend’s blog, DO IT! She’s lovely, and also brilliant AND a fantastic writer. She did a series called Drag and Drop Stories, which was wonderful.

PS: I should have a post up soon (REBEL I know) about something I’m doing tomorrow. Also, your responses to my last post were WONDERFUL, and I couldn’t have been happier; they put a smile on my face (as you guys always do).

  1. ooooh sounds good! im not sure; one big story could be really cool, but if you did lots of little stories they’d be easier to follow and you’d never run out of inspiration and you could do loads of different things.. looking forward to it πŸ˜€

  2. I usually prefer short stories for blogging, as said above, it leaves you so open to variety. Unless you use the same bunch of characters in AU or sitcom adventure situations. That suddenly sounds appealing…

  3. Short stories are always fun, but trying to keep a story alive one chapter at a time is even better. I think something unique would be cool, maybe a different twist on a classical or modern horror story. Maybe a clash and your own twist of you and your friends favorite books, those are always interesting. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  4. Yessssssss! Little stories would be easier to write, and also easier to follow if you’re only posting once a month. But a great idea!!! Totally looking forward to reading it. πŸ™‚
