Calling all writers!
Okay, maybe not ALL writers, but the ones who may be interested in a brand new collaborative effort hosted by the amazing Steve B. at the equally amazing site, Ordinarily Handsome The link to the left of these words will speed you over to his site for some exciting details on what he and I have cooked up.
It’s like this:
Steve and I have gotten to know each other a bit here on the WP. He’s always encouraged my artistic voice and I do my best to return the support. We’ve talked over these past months about doing some kind of collaboration and well, we’ve finally come up with something not only we will collaborate, but you guys and gals can as well.
This first literary effort is called (working title!) ‘Sea Legs’. Steve sent me the opening lines a day ago, and let me tell you, I think it’s already awesome! You’ll see.
A beautiful, wealthy dame who may or may not be up to no good, and the guy who sets his sights on her… and of course all that lovely MONEY. Steve has set the bar high, but I know there’s bound to be three of four or twelve of you out there itching to lend your creative voices to this tale?
How will you do that- lending your voice/words/ideas, you ask?
Simple. I’m thinking you can just add it like you would a comment to a blog post. I suppose if there are say fifty comments as ideas initially, we might have to shuffle things about, but it’ll work out. I’m sure of it.
Keep an eye on Steve’s blog (linked above) tomorrow, Friday for the OFFICIAL PART ONE OF, ‘SEA LEGS’. After you’ve read it, please consider a contribution to the story. We’re not looking to turn anyone’s ideas aside. Steve and I are convinced this should be an exercise in having fun first and foremost. It could also spark real dialog on the nature of storytelling from those of you you do it on a regular basis in your own waking lives?
It’s also important to state, this is a brand new gig for both of us. We’re willing to allow the story to ‘tell us where it’s going’, which is what should make it a blast as it develops.
‘Sea Legs’. Hope to see you all tomorrow and possibly adding some ideas?
