As writers we often don't take the time to simply practice our craft in an enjoyable way. Something I grew up doing was called Free Form Role playing. The idea is a group of writers write a collaborative story together ensuring complete control of each other's characters to each participant. If participant 1 created Bob and I created Sue, no matter what I could dictate She's actions and participant 1 could only dictate Bob's actions.
This type of gaming allows for writers to test the waters with their descriptive ability and get live feedback for their writing. Has anyone here ever done anything like this? Does it sound like something anyone would be interested in? Like something that could be a helpful excercise?
I guess I do something of the sort. I write on FanFiction (dot) net and one of my first readers (who has since stuck by me) play a storytelling game, where one person comes up with a story line and then we start acting (so to speak since this is done through private messaging), becoming our fictional characters (Silver and Tails, respectively--part of our usernames on that site). Role playing is so much fun!
Yeah that's a version of it. I've done that over like AOL instant messaging. Forum RP was my favorite as it allowed for a little lengthier posts.
I was big into fantasy and Sci - Fi but toward the end I did try my hand at a criminal minds type FBI crime thriller. It was pretty awesome.

So we have freedom of speech in the US, but we also have a crime called "incitement to riot."If you want to commit that crime, what you need to do is get up in front of a group of people, and say some words. If the words you say make the crowd angry enough to run around assaulting other...

Can an employer dictate the political beliefs of their employees?As mentioned in my Rage Slaves hub, I had an employer who told us where we should bank or shop (or, more to the point, not bank or shop), which words we could use (Freedom fries, for instance), and who constantly inundated us with his...

So, for those people who were arguing how "free speech" includes the "right" to "say whatever I want" no matter what the outcomes of your free speech are for other people (including getting people killed from your right to draw pictures that incite riots etc.), now I...

If God is not true, Do you think man should still obey the ten commandments?If this generation insists God to be not true, does it make sense to obey or pick any idea pertaining to the ten commandments claimed to be originally given by God to Moses or should man, in his own wisdom, create another...
