Campfire Stories

CampfireFor 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.

Happy writing!

    Hello Phil,
    I love the name you selected for your series. Stories told around the campfires of ancient times with the firelight illuminating the faces of those telling and those listening have been an image I have held for as long as I can remember. I suppose that is why, to me, the story is everything. I do know you can tell a good tale. You are first of all, an entertaining writer. Best of luck to you.

    • Aw, thanks Mary! These are mainly designed as writing exercises to help writers keep the motivation and inspiration. In fact, “The Desert Marker” is open to everyone in case you were interested in adding a chapter. Just say the word :).
