One Word Story…..

I came up with what I thought was a pretty cool idea yesterday, I have a lot of different people who read my blog, some creative, some authors, some real life friends and a surprisingly regular amount of people researching Theodore “ted” Lewin.

I thought what could be interesting would be to tap into the joint imagination of all my readers and start a story written by all of us. My original idea was a paragraph each, I then revised this to a Sentence and then after a conversation with Wife to a word.

It turns out that this is a game that she plays in her Drama classes to get the imagination of her children flowing.

To keep it from getting lost within the normal Blog I have created a separate page for this to be housed, ideally, dependent on success, at the end of each week  I’ll compile what has been written so far and we can carry on in a never ending story!

If it garners some interest I would like to follow up in a week or two expanding it to be a sentence each, as I think in the long run this could prove to be a more readable story, but if I do that I think ill start again from scratch!

You can (and should)  post as many times as you like but please make sure you follow the rules below.

  1. You can only post one word at a time
  2. You must allow two people to post in-between each of your words
  3. Punctuation does not count as a word

Please make sure that you tell as many people as you can about this idea, either through your own blogs or other social media as the more involvement there is the longer and most likely more ridiculous the story will be!

    One word “Once”

    We did this once as a game at a Bonfire it was awesome. Great idea, great fun. I still have the story recorded some place. The only issue we ran into is that certain people in the gorup kept using the same kind of word. It kind of made it a little dull, but still awesome.

    Cool idea, I love writing exercises like this. When I was an English as a Second Language teacher, I did an activity with my class where each student would add a line to a story and pass a rubber chicken to the next student to add on. I’m in!
