this is for those of you who enjoy creative writing. You will have one partner and will send her via snail mail, a story about:

a box on a shelf in a factory

Everyone will write about the same thing! All the details are up to you. The story must be at least 3 paragraphs long, but it can be as long as you like!. Be fun, creative, silly - just have fun with it!

Some things to help you think........where is the box located, what color is it, what size is it? Is it full or empty, what does it have in it, etc. etc. etc.

There is plenty of time to think this through! I hope there are a lot of creative writers in the group!

No 1 or 3 ratings in the past 12 months

Shouldn't this be a Type 3 swap? It's a creative challenge—hence craft-based...

No I think type 2 is better since it is only a written/letter based swap. But that is what I think :).

This is not hand made, nor is it a craft, so it has to be a type 2 swap, like any other writing swap.

I did one about a wall and fogot to join...lol. I may add to that with this as a chapter!

Typed or handwritten? Either?

Is there a limit to how long? In other words I started and did not stop and on the story goes. LOL

Either typed or handwritten is fine @Kogelliz and just have fun with your story Fawn! Um.........don't write a 30 page book , though lol!
