You might be wondering what this post is about, but it is exactly what the title says it is: writing a story with other bloggers!
I first came up with this idea as part of the Blogger Positivity Campaign and what the book blogging community can do together. One of my suggestions was to write a story together, and people seemed interested, so I thought we could give it a shot!
Before I proceed any further, I want to give a shout out and a batch of freshly baked virtual cookies to Trisha @ Bookgasm and Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff because they helped me mould this idea into something concrete. I appreciate the encouragement and the push to make this happen, so thank you ladies! You guys are the coolest!😀
Now, if you are interested to learn more about this collaborative story, here are the details:
This collaborative project is open to all bloggers who love and adore Harry Potter. This is crucial because our story is going to be set in Hogwarts seventeen years after Deathly Hallows. The story’s plot is completely in the hands of all writers, you can twist and stir the story any way you like, so long as you keep it under 700 words.
All bloggers cannot use canon characters from the series. We will be making original characters using the character profile that I will provide as a guide. The character may be a student, a professor, a Muggle, a villain, or even a ghost. It’s your choice!🙂
For this story, we will have a maximum number of ten writers, including me, Trisha, and Michelle. That means we are looking for seven other bloggers who would like to join us. If you are hesitating because you never wrote a story before, don’t worry! We will be cheering and helping each other out along the way.
THE WRITING PROCESS:
A blogger will be assigned every week to add 500 to 700 words to the story and post it on their blog, along with the links to the previous chapters. I will be randomly assigning the schedule once the registration period ends. The post MUST be up on Sunday, 10:00 GMT, so we can read what happened and the next writer will have a week to prepare his / her part in the story.
You will be writing your part in the story in the point of view of the character that you made. During your turn in story writing, you may also control the characters created by other bloggers, but please make sure that they remain and act close to how the blogger envisioned their character to be.
If we get 10 bloggers for this story, that means the project will take 10 weeks to complete. The last blogger will write the ending of our story, but all bloggers will also write an epilogue for their own characters. Finally, I will collate all of our entries, including the epilogues, and send the completed story to all participants to read and enjoy!
HOW TO JOIN:
If this sounds like your kind of thing and you would like to join us on board this magical writing adventure, then please fill out the form and I will be sending you an e-mail with the details about this project as well as the character profile. Registration ends on December 6, 2015 or when all 7 slots are filled up.
