Seasonal Round Robin

The Challenge for this month is a piece of joint writing along these lines. The bits in italics are up for discussion- if you want to express an opinion/ask a question please do so here

Before the writing begins:

1. The names of all the writers are collected and put in a hat. The names are then drawn by random order and put on a list.

2. The person at the top of the list starts the story and then hands it off to the next person on the list. This goes on until the last person is reached and they get to do the final chapter.

When the writing begins:

1. The story starts with "a phrase yet to be decided"
2. The first writer gets to setup the basic world the story will be set in.
3. Each writer does their own thing, but it has to fit into an overall story and have a progression to it. In other words, if the hero is a 6ft tall male he can't suddenly become a female dwarf who likes to kill for a living.
4. The characters should be original and new or orlando characters
5. The next writer in the list always incorporates what came before, then moves the story along.
6. There is no limit on length of post, but will be a time limit for each 'turn' possibly 5 days
7. The last writer must finish the story.


So far we have
Nuit
KiwiGirl
Lassalanta
GeminiGirl
Stormdancer

but we would like to have more! If you are interested please let us know by the 26th November so we can get going and put the names in a hat
Cheers!

OK so we are ready to go. Fantastic to see so many writers.

We have decided that this challenge is to be original characters only. This not only covers Orlando characters but also any other characters that we may have written before.

Each writer has one go. So Luna you are setting the scene and Fran you are ending the story. The rest of us can create mayhem in the middle.....no just kidding, really!

The opening line is

Calmly she rose from the table, placed her neatly folded napkin next to her untouched plate, and without a backward glance walked out of the dining room into the hall and straight out through the front door.

And the order is...........

Stormdancer
Casakit
Lassalanta
GeminiGirl
KiwiGirl
KrazymoonKat
Nuit
Snoey
Telcontar


So five days each, unlimited word count.

One last question for the writers and I just thought of this...sorry Nuit.

Is this going to be in the mature section or in the general fan fic? Or in both? would you want to be writing one version and then editing for general viewing?

Well I guess it would be nice not to have to worry about whether you're crossing the line so from that point of view I'd vote for the mature section... Unless we decide beforehand that we're going to keep it clean?

Well do we want to do mature and are we ok with me cleaning it up for the general board.

I just feel that it is a good thing to have about that may encourage others to come and play???

Of course my chapter will be as clean as a whistle as there are only nine of us so chapter 47 is an absolute impossibility!

Yesssss!

I'm really looking forward to this, and it's wonderful to see so many participants. As to the mature / general thing, I vote for the Mature section. That way no one has extra work, and the writers don't have to worry about curtailing their creativity.

Alright ladies, let's rock! No pressure or anything Luna...

me too! I am feeling very good about all this (thank ye Jack)
I vote for the Mature section too. I do get what your point is Ki, and that is an important consideration, but on balance I think that for the writers it just makes it more flowing. However I vote people post an Update Announcement and a little taster from the post to entice people in! Once it is done, yeah, we could see if anything needs changing/cleaning up and post it as a whole on the public board if that seems to be appropriate.
Luna shall we leave you to start the thread then? I will post a request in the Graphics forum for a seasonal banner.

If?

We may not get to chapter 47 for Ki, but consider the writers here, Nuit.

Have started...give me a day or two and I agree with the Mature section thread choice(although if Ki is willing to clean it up for the General section, I don't see any problem with that - may garner extra interest for next time etc.) - but I can't see my characters getting hot and heavy in the opening segment - I'll leave that to the rest of you...
