I have found that when we try to write things together, what happens is that nobody actually reads what the others wrote so that the story ends up being very choppy, at times does not make sense, and even the names of the characters are messed up or changed. In the end the work is not good.
I love doing this though, so I am asking (challenging) one, two, or three, or more other people who also like this sort of activity to join me, but only if you will actually read what it there, written by the others and myself, and do their best to make the story , actually be a story, keeping the characters and the storyline in focus. Any takers?
OK, I am going to wait until tonight or maybe morning so a few people have a chance to see this and we can begin at the same time. I am hoping for 3 to 5 people participating. If not it is me and you, OK?
Alright, lets see what happens, I guess it is just you and I. Maybe we will have another person or two join in along the way.
Let's say that each person's turn has to be at least one or two sentences, and no more than a paragraph. If you would like to add any rules or suggestions feel free to do so. Here goes.
The young girl had a few friends, but for the most part was a loner. She didn't like to get into trouble, not because she felt it was wrong but because she did not like to be the center of attention. There were plenty of people around her in that house, but she liked to be by herself. It made it easier for her to carry out her "special interest" beside everything else.

How well do poems and short stories do on HP?I noticed a while back somewhere that HP staff had mentioned that creative writing such as poems and short stories don't do as well as informational pieces.

I find that while attempting to start a novel I was getting stuck. The result was a computer folder full of short stories about a young con man named Tyler, a slacker whose biggest flaw is that he's a pathological liar. Does anyone find that short stories and failed attempts to put a novel together...
