For those looking for an interactive writing exercise that doesn’t take up too much time but is lots of fun, look no further! Here’s where you can participate in an existing or new (let me know if you have an idea) campfire story. Easy, peezy and low commitment. Scroll to the bottom to see the current campfire story.
A campfire story consists of multiple authors adding (staggered) chapters into the same story. Essentially, one person starts things off, then the next continues with a new chapter, then another and another. All this happens without prior collaboration, you just pick up the story from where the last author left it off and see where the adventure goes.
First and foremost, this is meant to be fun–it’s a writing exercise. By all means, put your best foot forward but you shouldn’t feel overburdened or frustrated by it.
