Monthly Collaboration?

Running an idea here. Anyone wants to try taking up an experimentation serial? Maybe all of us do one chapter a month, and update weekly. Any ideas or takers?

You'd be surprised how many authors want to do a collab. No, seriously, you'd be surprised. Link a few people to this thread on your Twitter.

My take: I'm always up for it. Me and Sean Munger were talking about a wild goose chase type of serial about a year ago, told entirely through mail/email. We have a McGuffin that we all want, and each chapter would be a mail/email by one of us sent to the group about something we discovered about the McGuffin that could lead all of us to it. That's as far as we got, but I've been thinking about the story ever since then. This sound like a good idea to you?

So it's like that Twitter story from a few months back eh? I'm not sure how interesting an email story would be though. If I think about it, there's got to be at some point where the characters will start using short hands and shortened messages. It's an idea, let's roll it around a little. I think it can get better.

But there is something else that I thought of. I was on the train yesterday and I finally finished a book I was reading, so I went and read Metal Shadow. Cause I'll be working on a new story next year with inter-dimensional elements, I wondered if we should try a multiverse story.

I don't recall any Twitter story. You'll have to fill me in there.

I was thinking the same thing about the short chapters, and I had the idea that maybe the emails can be told accompanying some narration from the POV of the person sending the email. So each chapter would have action + emails, in any order.

Multiverse story! Tickles my brain. Keep going...

You know, this twitter story.

Oh, you know, that sort of sounds like it can work. I'm guessing you're talking about something like a normal narration per chapter, which at some point we'll have our characters send the email?

- 139 SPOILERS EVERYONE -

And yeah, the multiverse thing. It's a thing you see. Cause my 139 world is actually part of a larger multiverse stories. One of which includes a fantasy world, based heavily on multi-dimensional antagonists. I already have all the details of the world figured out, so a collab with the say...139 and Metal Shadow world...what do you think?

Facepalm.

A collab between 139 and MS! I'd be very interested to see how that plays out. Let me catch up on 139 and we'll see. :)

No need to force yourself to read them. I've yet to write about the multiverse yet. I should be catching up on MS instead, which I am. Slowly. Because I'm busy playing video games :P. And MS have a much more developed world, I feel, so if anything, I should be fitting my world into yours. 

But hey! The email idea is pretty neat too. I always love these kind of actiony-thrillery stories with mysteries and stuff. Let's stew these ideas and see how it goes.
