Don't forget - your entries for the 25-word pitch contest are due TODAY by 1:00pm CDT.
Collaborative writing is when two or more authors come together to work on a project. Stephanie and I did that with the Go Teen Writers book. But I'm not going to talk about how to collaborate on a project today. Stephanie wrote an article about it, which will be available soon.
Instead, I wanted us to try collaborating on a story in this blog post as an experiment to see how it would work and where the story would go.
This will likely get a little messy. (And I have no idea if it will work!)
Rules: Keep each comment to a few sentences—one to five, perhaps. I want you to look at what was written in the comments that came before yours and think about how you can add to the story or make it stronger. Also, try to leave your contribution in an interesting place for the next commenter to pick things up. You might have to be a little fast, though, as someone might post his comment before you get a chance to post yours.
It's all in good fun. So let's do the best we can. And you're welcome to come back and add more to the story, if you'd like. Just make sure to let others write sentences in between.
I'll start. The first person to comment gets to go next and so on.
