Writing Game Redux - Want to Join Us?

At the beginning of November, I posted the following challenge:

1. Create a list of things that you'd like to write about (ideas for stories)
2. Create, in a little more depth, three characters
3. Create some sort of conflict(or if you're feeling generous, a couple of conflicts and your victim co-author can choose which one he/she likes)
4. These will then be switched randomly by moi, and we will each write a story based on the ideas of a blogging buddy.

Ten brave victims writers came to play. It was great fun and a couple of the participants, Gunfighter of The View from Here and Wholly Burble from Rocking Chair Ruminations, are working on making their pieces into longer projects. Hooray!!!

So my new proposal is this: Send me those same lists to jenshaines at aol dot com by 11:59 pm, -5 GMT, Friday, January 18, and I will shuffle said lists and send you someone else's lists by Monday, January 21st. Then sharpen your crayons or pencils or clean your keyboard and GET WRITING.

We'll post our final efforts on Friday, February 1st.

No, there's no winner, nor is there a prize for a winner, but we're ALL winners when we write. Right?

Our first ten participants did a wonderful job and it was so much fun to read their efforts! I'd love to see us double our numbers for this round. Let's write some fiction, Baby!

I'm a glutton for punishment LOL--I'm in! I'll put on my beanie cap and start thinking up something fun (hopefully) for my new "partner in crime".

Oh, this sounds like fun. I don't know if I can do a good enough job though. I'll think on it. (((HUGS)))

Looking forward to reading everyone's stories!

I do want to join you, but I must admit, I am quite scared...
I am thinking about it. In fact, I can't stop thinking about it, so let me think about it some more and see if I can talk my sissy pants self into trying. :)

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

Anno, we'll so miss you, but if part of this means you'll continue your other story, then YAY for that!

Painted Maypole, I'd so love to have you join!

NYC, Wholly Burble - I already wrote you on this - YAY!!!

Mariposa, Jan, Jenn - it's a blast. Really. And we've had writers of all experience levels. Just come play! We're a really supportive group. ;-)

I really wanted to do this last time, so I think I might have to bite the bullet and go for it this time...

Are you doing this again? I am not a writer per se, but I have a pretty good imagination.
