    Co-writing the Short Short

    Objective:

    To help each other write better by 'getting into each other's heads'. This activity can be helpful as a substitute to longer critiques and/or proofreadings since it focuses on short segments. This activity is not for everyone and nonparticipants are gently askede to stay away. While this activity is fun, it is also a serious way to improve our individual style & creativity.

    For this to work these guidelines must be strictly kept by all participant writers:

    1. Whoever initiates the short short has the right to edit it as a running piece, meaning, the INITIATOR can exclude entries that, in his/her opinion, do not fit the initial theme, style, p.o.v., or historical period.

    2. Initiator must periodically write entire work for forum viewing, and post completed short story when done.

    3. Initiator can terminate activity at any time.

    4. Participants are limited to five consecutive sentences per turn; after their entry they must wait for another writer's imput.

    Disclaimer:

    I am F L Gonzalez, a writer just like you. The completed work will belong to all of us as a legal entity (if activity is completed). As such I cannot publish it without the consent of participant fellow writers. I appeal to our maturity and open mindedness; no alterior motive exists for this activity.

    It wasn't the chicken coop that was the problem as much as the tree that had fallen onto it.

    FL -

    People use writing craft generally as a place to ask questions about the craft or ask for critiques. Just my humble opinion, but I do not hink most people are interested in co-writing anything seriously in this way. We do it in smoko, as something fun. Leslee and a few others told you this and I saw you posted there and also tries to keep it serious. Not sure it will work. Not sure this is the best channel for what you seem to want to do. Just friendly advice. Eules and such do not tend to work lol

    FL, you've been posting here for one day, and you expect to have the unquestioning participation of other writers in a project you've determined is important. Seems a bit unrealistic, doesn't it? WNers tend not to go for homework assignments, anyway. We're too busy writing books.

    I'm just suggesting ideas - you as an individual do not have to participate. If there are 100 WNers then a few might like old Pancho. Si?
