  • spazaru: I doubt it, chancebond.  The market will determine what Archie or anyone can charge.  No way anyone will pay that much.  Or at least I hope they wouldn't.

  • chancebond: in a coupla years or so... with seattle's minimum wage being at $15 bucks an hour... and other cities raising theirs... archie comics will probably be 10-15 bucks a pop... imagine paying that times 6 for every title of comics digests.  even more for annual, and jumbo comics

Fanfic Relay Writing
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:09:04 AM »
I once teamed with a pal in college for a relay writing contest. We were given a theme and we each had to take turns writing on it in one hour flat, we didn't get any time to discuss so we ended up screwing each other's plots. He would write one thing, I wouldn't like it, the next para would negate everything he wrote and it went so on and so forth.

Why not try the same thing with fanfics ? We have a lot of people here who are really talented with words, and art, and would make a great contribution to a story. It is not possible for everyone to write chapter after chapter of a fic, I should know, The Clown and The Princess is shaping up quite differently from how I originally planned it. I wanted it to be darker but I toned it down a lot.

We could start with a theme or loosely defined plot and then anyone on this forum can write a chapter, any number or even para of the story. It will be really interactive compared to the current format where one writer just keeps belting out chapters. The only condition would be that the most recent writer should take the time to go through the previous chapters, at least cursorily, so that continuity is not lost.

I am really interested to know all your views on this, this can be a great project. And no, it doesn't have to be a Betty/Jug fic or anything like that. I am fine working with any theme ( or perhaps no theme at all ? )

P.S. : In case you were wondering, our team came in first, how I will never know :)

i really like that idea, relay writing or writing round robin, whatever you call it. When i used to play this game with my siblings, we intentionally screwed up each other's plot ;D Like, if participant wanted a character to run a race, the next had him lose both his legs in an  accident....
Archie: Betty, our Betty! Dear, sweet Betty!
Jughead: Blonde girl, cute smile, about so high...dates some guy named Mantle, right?

That's a great idea!  I'd be happy to do it.   :)

P.S. Probably because you were part of the writing team.   ;)   :D

Thank Zach and sintah ! So, should we start on one and hopefully other people will pitch in too ?

I will let one of you take the first shot and then I will pitch in, let's keep this informal, anyone can pitch in when he or she feels like.

Fine with me!   :)  Hopefully someone else will take the first shot, as I'm not very good at starting stories.

Of course, the point of this project is to get as many people involved as possible.
