My friends came up with an interesting exercise – to write a collective story for Christmas. The problem was, everyone was starting in different places and posting their ideas at the same time, and they appeared in random order, making a total mess of everything.
What I saw, however, was that all the participants, who were not writers by the way, had very interesting ideas and it looked as though with the very same beginning in mind, everyone created a different story, and this story was special and fascinating.
And I thought, what if everyone had a chance to write their story properly, without random, misplaced interference? How cool it would be!
Let’s do it, then!
Here is a beginning for a Christmas story (http://www.ravenboy.com/christmas.html). Finish it as you like. It can be just one sentence, or several chapters, it’s totally up to you. The aim is to have fun with it 😉
Everyone can participate, you don’t have to be a writer. You don’t have to register or to pay, and the story that you will write is all yours. You can give it as a gift to your friends and family, if you want.
To make it even more exciting, I will throw in some prizes. Post your story on my FB page (https://www.facebook.com/KaterynaKei/) before December 26th (yep, I want to enjoy the Christmas mood for as long as possible), like it and share it with your friends and relatives. The story that will get the most FB likes will win an Amazon gift card for $25. The second and the third best story will get a physical copy of my book Raven Boy. I might add some more prizes, depending on the number of participants 😉
Just make sure you share your story from my FB page, otherwise I won’t be able to count your likes.
Enjoy the game!
