The rules are simple:
Look through the now 400-word entries from last week (round two, linked above).
Add another 200 words to the story.
(Easiest way forward is to copy the chosen 400 words to your own blog, then add the next 200. Don’t forget to link to your now 600-word story in the comments. Someone may want to continue the tale next week, for part four.)
You do not need to have participated in the first rounds to participate in this one.
Try to choose to continue a story in which you have not yet participated.
Do not finish the story. This is a five-part fiction experiment: we’ll end the year with several 1000-word stories, each built out of 200-word chunks by you guys. This is a collaborative game. It is Whisper Down the Lane. It is Telephone. It should be very interesting by the end. One hopes.
You’ve got one week.
Due by Friday, December 13th (gasp!), noon EST.
Join the narrative chain, won’t you?
