I'm very psyched about this community. I used to spend a lot of time at writing.com
back when it was stories.com. I enjoy collaborative writing, and having sort of that "choose your own idea" to end/continue a story. Unfortuantly that site has become filled with very young kids writing Harry Potter fan-fic and stuff about being shrunk to one inch or being gigantic. Neither of these interest me..I like harry potter but I haven't read the books to know what they are talking about, ya know?
Anyway..I also used to do Poetry "tag" with a couple of friends, but we have stopped doing it. This is basically when you make an AIM chat room and person A's turn is up and another person picks the title of the poem. So..think of it like this, person A gets a topic from another called "Fall Wonder" and ON THE SPOT you have to write a poem. It doesn't have to be a certain length or rhyming style, just what that person can come up with. This was a fantastic tool for working on descriptive writing. Not to mention you are thinking on your toes, so the poetry may not be fantastic, but your honing your craft. If you all think this sounds good PLEASE post about it, I'd love to get a once a week or more chat going. :D
So..yeah. I'd love to help and I think doing a "campfire" ghost story would be fun. Since the group is still pretty small, we can each get a turn, and start a spooky story or funny or whatever. Yes? No?
La la..I need to get writing again. It's been much too long since I've done a poem or short story, so I'm way hyped about this.
