We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this announcement.

I'm kicking around an idea. Not sure if anyone would want to jump on board because it would mean working outside the box (and also take some of your time). Beyond our ideas of "Owned" individual properties and move into a shared property concept. We would be working with my vague concept and realizing it while we write it. I just think it would be a very neat experiment, but I'm not sure if others would think the same way... which is why I'm bringing it to all of you.

The project would work like this. I would provide the world, the main characters and the general START of the plot. Every week, one person would take a page and write it/illustrate it, starting and then continuing the direction of the plot. One page at a time, through the eventual conclusion of the story. I've done this before with written prose, during writing workshops and it was incredibly fun.

I've already got a couple people that are interested in doing this, so I think I'm going to run with it. I definitely want more people to participate. We'll go in order of volunteering. Probably tomorrow, I'll post up what I've got in terms of a world and character development and we'll go from there. I'll also put all that info on the blog I set up.

Share it with your friends so we can grab more people as well.

This is going to be FUN!!
