I have seen a few writers maintain narratives lets create a group narrative.
It could be a choose your own path narrative. One writer starts a narrative and two or more respondents write divergent bits.
The tags section could b(more)e used to guide the reader back to the source.
It needs a reference to author, title and date.
Example: 12tm, "Trinity", 5/13/14
We could specialize. Some write characters. others describe scenes.
Since there are only 3 tags allowed we need a modifier within the title to indicate what function it plays.
Example: "Trinity" is modified into "CrTrinity" Where Cr means Character. Sc for Scene.
Necessary writer functions include: setting, theme/mood, character, scene and plot.
If you like this please let me know and share.
Here's a setting:
Two terms and their descriptions. Terms first. Lords Phenomenon and Gnostic Hall Phenomenon.
The Lords Phenomenon is the ability to inhabit an unlimited number of individuals and live as them. The inhabited victims may or may not be aware they are playing the host. A subtle lord can compel without detection. The Lord lives two or more lives at once. The experience of simultaneous existence is disorienting.
The Gnostic Halls Phenomenon is the ability to travel into parallel selves. A self that would have existed if you had chosen differently at such and such a time in your life. Think Butterfly Effect except that you are simultaneously aware of both identities. You are living two lives at once.
The danger is that the selves can merge into each other and become directionless. Being lost between selves for some leads to the realization of a meta self. A self which is simultaneously all selves. For some it can lead to a self composed of all selves. Not necessary. (less)
"it's a ridiculous idea," i titter nervously, twirling my hair, something i would never do when you're not around.
i look into your eyes, grey or green i can never quite tell, and i can't shake the feeling that if this was a romance novel then you would grasp(more) my face in your hands and realize i was the one you were in love with all along, but instead you just laugh.
"yeah c'mon," you say, hitting me playfully on the shoulder, "see you later."
and you leave, taking my fairytale ending with you. (less)
"Really girl?" The disbelief, bordering on disappointment dripping from her tone. Her hazel eyes wide.
" Yeah Em. The Internet. It's not as weird as you're acting it is." Leslie fires back over their steaming lattes. Her voice laced with laughter. "What's wrong with it?"
"He could be some gia(more)nt perv for all you know."
"It's not like that," hesitating, "I've talked to him on the phone and-"
"Oh my god Leslie! Now way! He has your number?! This is how people get murdered!" Emily throws up her hands.
"And he seems like a great person. I stalked him on Facebook too." She pauses, reflecting. "Damn it, is it really weird?"
"Maybe not that weird, but if you ask me it's a ridiculous idea. Show me his Facebook!"
The neglected lattes cooling fast. (less)
