So I’ve had this idea for quite a while and it was only the matter of fleshing it out more that kept me from positing. But on to explaining. I have two different idea styles for a group collaborative idea that a group of us can do. Idea #2 is lacking just a bit because I wanted the feedback of the group before carrying on.
Adventure Collection Story: Each writer makes a mini story/adventure to add to the story. So in the end, it will be a book consisting of a collection of stories from different writers. Because we’ll all be choosing different stories, genre and what not wouldn’t really matter.
Larger Story: This one is the project that would need more fleshing out. My thoughts so far is that each writer makes their own character and at the beginning give a cool little interactive backstory for them that the reader plays. After that is done we start the story. How we do this is largely up for debate and also has to do with what kind of story we choose. We could allow the reader to choose an already premade character to play or have them create their own. Or I was even thinking we can have the reader play as the narrator to the story, and the POV’s change from chapter to chapter or we attempt to use third person. If this idea was chosen then I would only be looking for maybe 3 - 5 writers.
The first idea allows for more writers to join in since we all won’t necessarily be dependent on one another. While the second idea will be more of a challenge but will allow more interactions and from my perspective, an interesting end result.
I’ve had a few ideas of stories that we can use for the second one (a thriller/suspense, superhero, and then a fantasy) and I’m definitely open to others. Anyway I think I covered most of what I wanted to say.
If you’re interested whatsoever then please tell me. I might also be looking for anyone who wants to help by doing something besides writing, but that will come after we decide on the idea. But if you don’t think you’re up for the challenge or believe that you can see it all the way through then it might not be a great idea.
Thank you to any and all for you your feedback and interest!
