Sentence by Sentence: A Collaborative Writing Challenge


Let’s write a story together. I know we’re all busy, and sometimes there are just too many writing prompts and too little time. So let’s build a story brick by brick, or rather, sentence by sentence. The first lucky writer gets to start the ball rolling with any sentence he or she likes. Just post a sentence in the comments section and then we’ll just build on it, well, not to belabor the phrase, but we’ll build on it sentence by sentence. I’ll collect a week’s worth of sentences, and then post the final story next Saturday, when, if successful, we’ll start all over again. I’m crossing my fingers for some writing collaboration. I’m lonely!
