fan lit -anybody fancy having a crack at a Discworld story?

Postby NightOwl » Mon Jun 08, 2009 12:48 am

another board I used to frequent ran a sequence where posters took in in random turns to write a few paragraphs of a story and then carry on from one another - anybody fancy knocking out a comic tale together?

we could set it in any part of Discworld - say starting at Unseen University - perhaps with the Unseen University Challenge Weakest Linked Millionaire Mastermind competition to find the next Chancellor?

we know most characters fairly well between us - so perhaps we could restrict the story to characters who have already featured in a TP novel?

I think it could be a bit of fun - from the quality of posting on here, I imagine that the quality would be fairly high, even if the humour was fairly low.

perhaps each writer could put a sentence that would have to feature in the next episode.

any takers?

Been done a couple of times here... ends up petering out, no one else appears to bother to post or feel they have nothing to add! :cry:

I have witten a few stories and posted here in Games / your writings and letter to the paper..... feel free to Finnish off the tale I wrote about Dibbler and Leonard developing a flying machine... I got them to Klatch and left them stranded after trophy hunters ripped their Flying machine apart! :shock:
Go on have a go! 8)
