The finished story is quite long, and as such cannot be reproduced in a forum thread. As such, you will have to download and read the story yourself. There are several formats to choose from:
Here is a .DOC file
and a .PDF suitable for printing for later perusal.
An EPUB is also available for those of you with Kindles or other such devices.
This has been fun, and taken longer than expected (it always does); please leave feedback in the thread!
ORIGINAL POST PRESERVED FOR POSTERITY
I'll keep track here and in the thread when people pass their messages about, but it should
be able to proceed without my input. If it gets hung up at some point I will intervene. Otherwise, let's just see what happens!
It's been a while since we've had one of these
What is an Exquisite Corpse? Let's let Wikipedia explain:
"Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis) or rotating corpse, is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. "The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun") or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed."
We had a lot of fun with these back in the day, and I feel it is high time for another.
Together we will construct a tale of glorious and scintillating brilliance! No writing ability is required, just the responsibility to fulfill your obligations. Each writer will, in turn, write a short section of prose -- no more than a paragraph -- and send his contribution alone to both myself, as administrator, and to the next writer! Thus, each section will follow from the previous, but not necessarily from, you know, anything that came before. You'll get, say, three days to write your section and pass it on.
The rules are simple, as I've said. Depending on how many people want to do this we may have to go around a second time -- let's take that as it comes. Anyone interested? Just post below in red
to signify your acquiescence!
