This is something that I have wanted to do for ages. I need your help to make it happen.
I would like us to create two short stories one line at a time. Each story will start with the same initial line, but one of them will be written by men whilst the other will be written by women.
Each person can only submit ONE sentence, and the story will end after 50 sentences. Everyone has to work together to create something that is interesting, makes sense, and is a fun read.
Please encourage others to contribute – it will be interesting to see whether men or women finish first. We can then look at the resulting stories in terms of differences in character, plot and structure.
This is the FEMALE thread of the project so if you are a woman, feel free to contribute. Don’t be shy…here is the opening sentence…..
