And the fourth round is now within clicking range.
The end is here.
It has been a wonderfully weird experiment and I think, actually, pretty successful.
Time to bring this badboy home.
The rules are simple:
Look through the 800-word entries from last week (round four, linked above).
Add another 200 words to the story. The final 200 words, actually.
(Easiest way forward is to copy the chosen 800 words to your own blog, then add the next 200. Don’t forget to link to the now-finished tale in the comments.)
You do not need to have participated in the earlier rounds to participate in this one.
This time around, as noted, you will finish the story. And! And you are free to work on a story to which you have previously contributed, preferably one whose initial 200 words were yours to begin with. (Meaning, while not necessary, it’ll be interesting for you to finish the story that you began but whose middle is penned by three other writers.)
This is a collaborative game. It is Whisper Down the Lane. It is Telephone.
And now it’s time to finish up.
You’ve got one week.
Due by Friday, December 27th, noon EST.
Add the final link to the narrative chain, won’t you?
