Ok,...I have seen this done on other sites and it can work with some structure...We will build a story, one paragraph at a time. People taking turns, not knowing what the others will write. Anyone can write a paragragh at a time...anyone want it?...Once we start, we can no longer add additional players, as it would get too confusing. We will make out an order to write in. A single paragragh at a time. Post if you want in. In a few days we will begin, say oh, on Saturday the 20th of May. Unless this is a dumb idea, but I think it can work if we want it to.

I'll try to participate, but I'm not as knowledgeable of tactical weapons, or things like that. I like to write gore though...

That's the cool part, you don't have to be all knowing...shit, just write a love scene or something, or an arm being ripped to shreds, or your specialty, dismemberment by machete.

OK here's the deal:

 

Saturday I will draw everyone's name and the order will be established....It will be fair and impartial...it doesn't mean anything anyhow, because the restriction is 1 paragraph. So the main character/s won't even really be established for a few turns. The game begins on Sunday...the first person has a week to post, of course, we all hope when it's your turn that you can give us a paragraph quicker than that. We will go in order. If anyone has a problem, such as they can't go online or something, try to let one of us know. After the time limit (7 days) you will be skipped,...if it happens 3 times, your out. That seems to be fair...if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, I would love to hear them...This can be just a simple exercise to keep our creative juices flowin'.

I think it's a great idea, and I'm in agreement with the basic plan of it all.  I've participated in these before, and can tell you first hand that the single paragraph is the way to do it.  The last one I was part of became so convoluted it got ridiculous.  Then again, in that one we were required to write a full chapter at a time.  It seemed like interpretations of the story's premise were too varied (author to author) to keep it together enough to be called a story.  So I think the single paragraph format should work a lot better.

I've done a few of these on the rise of the dead page. They are really fun. I think it's a great idea and would really like to take part. I do have a question though: will there be a main story line (besides zombies of course) for the writers to follow?

I want in KK!! I did these all the time in my writing classes. I hope I can contribute to it. I think this is a great idea, perhaps one of the best threads on the site. quick question though.... Who decides on the title, or will there be one?

I venture to say that the story line must contain zombies.....and be set in the Morningstar Universe...that should get us all going I hope. As far as a title goes, why don't we wait and see how the story goes,...and then take a vote....for now we can call it ....hmmmm,....well,...I don't know,someone else help me out here...

ok I'm stoned out the bejesus belt right now and I thought for a second I had a brilliant idea....but in 20 minutes it may be lame....anyways here it is...the story can be about the rise of the dead and how we all trek to a safe haven to meet up there when tshtf.

It can start right from the onset or before. We can use all the people who haven't posted for awhile as characters, and kill 'em off,..you know all the 3 post carrier chows who haven't posted in a year...of course, we base the characters loosley on ourselves...and we must play nice with each other, lest the offensive persons character accidently bites it..hehehehehe....it could almost work...like I said,..I'm uberbaked,...is it stupid? I just though that if tshtf,..this may be one of the first places I check. I hope you all would find time to as well...

Actually, I think it might be safe to say that you are onto something! A very basic premise at least helps to get some ideas flowing.

 

And yes, I could write a romantic scene, and I could write a machete killing spree scene. But what would really be awsome, is if it was both romantic and slasherrific!

OK, I'm a day late,..but hell I was tired yesterday, I worked all weekend...so here is the order of authorship...

 

1. Dearanna

 

2. Pints

 

3. Gorgoroth

 

4. Sic

 

5. Brimdog

 

6. Kkidd

 

7. Diva

 

8. Uno

 

9. Sage  (Sage is in too! Although he really should refrain from speaking of himself in third person.)

 

10. Dooms

 

11. Supersnake

 

if anyone else wants in drop me a line....this is the order the writing will take place in starting with Dearanna. We each have a week to post our paragraph...remember 1 paragraph each...once the person before you has posted you may post...it can be 5 minutes after if you want...this should help it go

fast....if you don't post for a week during your turn, then you are skipped....I think that's about it...

 

So,...the premise is that the folks in the forum somehow intend to meet up somewhere during a Morningstar outbreak...let the games begin. Dearanna, you're up...

Okay, here it goes!!!

 

Some say that death is the ultimate sleep, the ultimate state of rest. Unfortunately, I know better. It's been three weeks now in this god-foresaken hell hole. I've haven't been bitten yet, but those fuckers keep getting closer everyday. Being stuck here in this prison is no picnic. All electricity is out; the heat, water, and even the backup generator are out too. I knew I should have never killed that man. It wasn't worth being attacked by zombies day in and day out!

 

Okay, hope that was good enough, it was written off the top of my head!

Obviously that number just seems to WANT to be a part of my life, cause it occurs so much that I joke about it here. Then Boom, there it is again!

The air is very cool, and a slight breeze is blowing as I open the hatch and climb up on top of the roof of this new home of mine.  The morning light is beginning to break, the sun isn't up yet and everything is cast in an icey blue light.  I always thought I would lose it when something like this went down, so far I haven't.  Looking around though, I am not so certain I can keep it together.  "How in the hell did so many of them find this place and me so quickly? It had been 24 hours of solittude and relative quiet before the pounding of metal and the constant moaning began. Really puts a damper on the sunrises."

The worst part, (aside from than the ever-creeping sense that I may never again see another living woman or child) is my outside view.  The surrounding area is a writhing sea of red, gray and black, continuously rippling and roiling as a single entity.  Their stench hasn't left my nose or throat in days.  It clings to the very air around them, reeking like an overstuffed diaper full of curdled milk.  Dear God, I wish I couldn't see them though....
