RULES:

There are no rules. although we should make some. lets try to set up a structure so that we can create a tangible item within 24 hours. ideas?

How about in 24 hours we create 100 haikus about something really boring.

or we could try a one sentence at a time as an autobiography of a fictional character that has to span 100 years.

ideas? its okay to spend a little time discussing this. also should we open this up to the public to help out?

Haikus, I'm in for. Boring, I ain't

We have some good structures available to us already in the Fiction Project- haiku stories, dada and one sentence relays.

I like using supporting ideas from our personal physical space- for instance have a character (or several) that is traveling between us, living seperate, yet connected lives.

Just as an example- A traveling salesman that has to go to Japan, New York and wherever else the other team members are.

These guys are doing a PHENOMENAL job.

Not for the faint of heart, but well worth the read.

I don't envy any of you who committed for the full ride, beer or no...

Everything I've read is fanfreakingtastic. Hang in there.

Mmm. I was just wondering since my 'Merging' character is sort of tied up with thidwick's and he seems to have disappeared.
