Use this to discuss all of the various components of the (working title) Brilliant Idea.
Hi everyone, I'm Eva! I had this idea for a new collab, temporarily called "The Brilliant Idea."
Essentially, it would be a love story between two bloggers told through their blog posts (with occasional guest posts from friends).
I have some of the basics for the main characters hammered out (Name... Job... That's pretty much it) and I'd really love to work on this with you.
We'd pretty much use protag to write the entries before posting them on the blogs. A few people could share the MCs and authors are welcome to grab a guest-posting friend. I actually just had an idea, you could blog as yourself (on your own blog), but in character, as one of the MCs friends. Perhaps it could be a FlashFriday post... Anyway, the MC would then link to your blog in their post, keeping the entire story together.
There are a few issues with this, it will be told in real time. This basically means that there can be no convenient time jumps. This also means that there needs to be commitment from writers. Since it's a collab, it shouldn't be a big issue, we have enough writers to cover everything...
I propose that we have things posted on the project two weeks before they go on the characters' blogs. This way they'll have time to be edited, and we can be sure that there wont be major gaps on the blogs. Also, by no means expect to have to write a post for every single day... I know most of us try to, but I, for one, very rarely manage to blog everyday for a period longer than a week and a half.
If you're in, let me know and I'll add you to the group!
Okay, for those of you too lazy to read the entire post, here's a summary
1. My name is Eva, it's very nice to meet you
2. I'm pitching an idea for a new collab, it's essentially a giant prank on the world
