Joint Story: The Sequel. You Decide
Our little poll seemed to have an actual purpose to it, and it became obvious that one of your favorite things about the blog was the joint story. I have to admit, I felt a tremendous sense of relief that it was over, even if it was my idea to start posting it up here in the first place, and therefore my own fault that I was stuck stressed out over trying to figure out what to do next before my next post was due!
Well, we've had a nice little break and it is apparent that our readership is down since the story ended and we aren't having as easy of a time coming up with other, regular posts. Not that we won't still have those, but it would be nice to just have updated content on a more regular basis, don't you think?
So, Push and I decided that we are going to do another joint story for you. The catch: you guys are going to decide what it's about. The only limitations I ask is that it is Han and Leia focused. Well, I might come up with more limitations depending on what some of the ideas you throw out there are, but that's a good start.
We ask that you post your story ideas here in the comments section and eventually we will post the choices in a poll for people to vote and the story will begin sometime in 2012, depending on how much interest we have here. There is no limit to the amount of ideas one person can offer. If you have seven different ideas, tell them to us. You don't need to give us an entire plot synopsis, it doesn't have to be long. Although it should probably have the potential to be more than, say 1000 words. Otherwise it wouldn't be much of a joint story! Use your imagination, give us an idea that you've thought of but don't actually want to write yourself. Give us an idea you think would be cute or edgy or maybe even something that's been done before but you want to see what we come up with. Whatever!
Who knows, maybe this will spark some ideas for other people as well, and some of the choices we don't pick can be issued as regular challenges. Let's have fun with this!
