A portent of things to come

There is a 'community fiction' that has started here. The premise of the story is that a young man living in Australia is going through regression therapy, looking for an explanation of, and possible cure for, his current fears and phobias. Of course, if you click on that link, all will be made clear. Anyway, that link points at Part 1, Vikki North has published Part 2 here, and Part 3 is being published today - check back on Vikki's Part 2 to see when and where Part 3 gets posted. (Vikki's piece is SO GOOD and she even has pictures and she did a charcoal portrait of the heroine of her piece and everything.) Then, tomorrow, I get to publish my piece as part 4. So, hopefully, at 12:01 am Tuesday, July 22nd, my piece will be up.

I am so excited. This, I think, is the most inventive piece of fiction I've ever written - even better than the excuses I used to write for myself in High School.

This is such a grand idea - this idea of 'community fiction', where everybody has a hand in creating the story. I hope my piece is liked well enough to be invited back for another go. Because, I had so much fun with this one, I can't wait to do another.

Well, I can hardly wait to read it as well. What fun it is and we can keep it going for as long as people want to contribute to it. I have to pop out to do some work now but will be back to post around midday Tuesday my time. Please feel free to play around with the ending because mine is set in 79AD so I think David will have lived many lives in between yours story and mine. Woohoo, so much fun!!! I shall be back to check on yours tomorrow.

I did something like this with my kids at camp. They went around and added a line each to a story. It ended up awesome in a crazy, only makes sense to 7 year olds kind of way.

Wow, you are so brave!

I can just hear someone saying, "Meh, there's nothing on TV, I think I'll go read the latest blog community fiction."
