Pass it on! *Check to see if your name is mentioned in this post*

Okay, so I have this really cool activity that a bunch of us can participate in. Just bare with me while I explain it.

Have you ever played the game when you were a kid where you'd write part of a story, then pass it on to the next person and they write the next part however they want? Then they pass it on to another person who writes another part of the story, then so on. Then at the end you get this crazy, hilarious, and interesting story.

Well if you have never done that, let me tell you, its SO HILARIOUS! And it's really interesting to see what others come up with. If you don't know what I mean.. look at this example-

My part- There once was a bear named Cookie who lived on Mount Sugar. Cookie stepped outside of his cave and smelled the fresh air and beamed, "Today I will find the best cookie in the world!" He marched to the bottom of the mountain and began his biggest adventure yet.

Then let's say I passed it on to fellow blogger Qui, and she decides to write- Cookie made his way into the town below, Sugar-land, and walked through the streets. He stood on a corner and waited for the next bus to arrive. A mouse slowly approached him, chewing on a piece of cheese between his teeth. "Mr. Bear, why are you down from the mountain? Bears never come down from the mountain!" asked the little curious mouse. "Why, I am looking for the best cookie in existence!"

And then she would pass it on to the next person, and they'd make up the next part of the story.

Since the majority of us here are writers, I was thinking this would be a fun and creative thing for us all to do. We could make it a monthly thing if you guys like this idea.

Now- I have a few of you who are my good blogging friends who I THINK might be interested in this. I'm going to list you all here-

If you guys could leave a comment saying if you would want to this or not, that'd be great!

If you are interested in this and I did not mention your name, leave a comment and tell me! I may not know you like to write, so let me know! I may have easily forgotten someone! But you must be following me, and I must be following you for you to participate.

We'd get an awesome short story out of this!

Once I get comments and people who would want to do this. I'll do a post explaining EVERYTHING!

So leave comments if you think this would be fun and if you'd participate!

UPDATE** Thanks to the people who already commented! I'm going to give the people who didn't comment the rest of today and maybe a little of tomorrow to respond. But I'll do a post about the rules and explanation later tonight most likely! Your names will all be in the post so make sure you check it out!

Sure, I'll give it a go! =D I use to do this a lot in my school. It's fun! Our story wound up really strange though. :P

Oh and could you also just use "J" instead of the full name? I like to keep it more anonymous on blogger.

Thanks for mentioning me though!

J said...

Oh I also wanted to add that your blog design is so cute. :)

Qui said...

Devin said...

I would LOVE to participate! This is a great idea, Paige. Sorry I didn't tell you sooner but I hadn't gotten a chance to read you latest posts yet. Thanks for letting me know about it. I'm excited!!

Converse said...

Converse and I would love to participate!
She's out of town, though, so I don't know if she will be able to, but I definitely will and I will let her know about it if she has internet where she is.
(Oh, and I'm on her account because mine won't let me comment on anything. It seemed you had that problem. How did you fix it?)

Oh, and I wanted to let you know... since I found you through a writing meme and you have a page for your poetry, I know you like to write. So I thought I'd give you a link to a poetry contest I'm hosting. I'd love it if you'd check it out and/or enter!
Here's the link:
