HAPPY 4th of JULY
We know that many of you are out
boating, camping, attending
cookouts, or just generally fooling
around for the 4th so we’re doing
something a bit different and just
We’re going to establish a basic
storyline then ask each person to
add a line or couple of lines to the
story. Then the next person adds
more and so on, and so on. We’ll
either end with a best seller or the
weirdest, wackiest story ever
conceived. So, c’mon and stretch
your imagination. This is the
opportunity to air some of those
bizarre and/or kooky ideas you’ve
had floating around in your heads.
But wait…there’s more:
If you’ve got a story idea, but you
can’t quite seem to make it work,
If you’ve got a paragraph or a
page you think might benefit from
a critique, we’ll help.
If you have a question about
characterization, plotting, the state
of publishing, if Amazon will
outlive us all or the price of tea in
China…we’ll help. In other words,
it’s your basic open forum.
