ROBINFAITH ... this is an exercise on see just how many ideas and changes occur in a story line. For instance, I have an entire idea that came up from what I wrote but when you add your part of the story (and those who follow) I will be surprised at the direction changes that come from each person's contribution. You can't mess it up. You just read what I started, see your own direction but the tricky part is that you only add a Paragraph or idea or sentence. This way you are limited and don't really get to go the full distance with your idea. Then the next person comes in and gets an idea and the story goes in their direction. It is interesting to see what happens to the story. It can also get frustrating if you get a really great idea.
These are also exercises used to get the creative juices flowing. With each twist and turn more story lines may come to your mind and the mind of others.
Have you ever done writing prompts in school for journals? This kind of the same thing only we are all working on the same story.
On a writing prompt a teacher would put a writing prompt on the board and each individual would finish the prompt in their own way and the teacher would have started 30 different stories. In this idea I have a prompt and we all build on the one prompt to build one story.
Give it a try...it is fun to see in what direction the next person will take your part after you.
Did I explain that well? Do you understand?
