Join us for Relay Writing!
How it works...
Choose a hub (writing prompt) from the Relay Writing participants.
Their hub will end with a writing prompt.
You write a new hub with THAT writing prompt and you end it with a NEW writing prompt.
Another hubber writes the next hub and it keeps going.
Jump back in when and where you want.
This can lead to various story threads - have fun with it and enjoy the diversity.
A hub might get various responses - and that is ok
This is what we have so far,

Be Sure You Wear Your Good Underwear, by sholland10

Details and suggestions
- Avoid numbering the hubs in your titles (can get very confusing)
-Create an original title for your hub
-Identify your opening and closing writing prompts
-Include a link to the preceding hub (this way your reader can see where your hub inspiration and writing prompt came from)
-Post your hub in this forum - using the format I used above
Feel free to post ideas and suggestion!
I've got a couple of takers on my hub's comments, so hopefully the project will have more sections posted in the next few days.
Awesome idea! I will have to start reading some of these hubs. I'm not a creative writer, but definitely think this is a really cool idea.
Interesting...wish I wasn't working the hours I do; it sounds intriguing.
Hi homesteadbound...how are you this early saturday morning?
you caught me before I could sneak in and then sneak out again.
What time is it where you are?
I'm here at work in NC and it is 1:21 a.m. where are you from again?
Texas-it's 12:22 a.m.
I'm planning on trying to explain some aspects of forum posting in my hub luv series this week.
Do you have any idea what the permalink feature does?
I have NO clue...sorry. That would make me Clueless in Carolina; it's a sequel to Sleepless in Seattle
Good luck with your hub.
Missolive, just finished reading your hub Mundane Monday, and can't wait to read barryrutherford's story and the others after that. Great idea! I might just give it a try.
Doing a followup to Sholland10's writing prompt from the article "Be Sure to Wear Your Good Underwear" was fun and challenging. The biggest challenge was I desired to tie it into a Christmas theme. Yet, I thought for fun I would toss in some hints from her article too. Take a peek at both articles if you have a few spare moments and enjoy a good read. Don't forget your favorite hot Holiday Season cup of brew - tea, hot cocoa, coffee, toddy , , ,
"Ghosts of Christmas Past" written by tsmog
opening writing prompt - Through my squinted eyes bright light came rushing toward from Sholland10's article "Be Sure to Wear Your Good Underwear
ending prompt - Have you been naughty or nice
Link - Ghosts of Christmas Past
I have included this forum post in this week's hub luv hub. Hopefully you will get some more takers!
Hey! I'm about to jump in on this, but I can't figure out whether we are trying to continue the same story or just use that one sentence to make our own? Thanks!
brittany - you pick the ending word prompt of your choice and continue the story as you please. End it with a new prompt for the next hubber.
Have fun with it!
Be sure to come back and post it here with the opening and closing prompt - glad to have you aboard the Relay Writing Train

Thank you for letting me be a part of this! It's pretty short, but I'll try to make a longer on next time. Enjoy!

On my way to check this one and your next one out. Keep em' coming Barry!
barry - here is a response to your hub - 'it's the police on the phone, they want to speak to you!"
My opening prompt - A policewoman in uniform walked in and stood forlorn and silent and stood against the wall near the door.
My closing prompt - Get your passport and pack your bags, you are headed for Australia! I grabbed my things and…

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

Hi ya'll. I'm a newbie and am wondering what hub scores ranging from 47 to 56 mean? What is a "good" hub score and how does that impact things?Thanks so much!!!
by kschang5 years ago
I am sure many of you have hopped a hub or two, and came across a hub that is such a load of... hogwash. Commenting the hub may or may not work. The hubber can always deny your comments. Flagging it? It's not quite up...

Just something I'll toss out there as it was new to me. I debated where to post this thought, but figured hubber hangout would be a good place.When approving comments this morning I came across a spam comment on my how...
