Round 3 already?? How are the stories going? They must be getting interesting!!!

  • You should have received a story from Round 2 from your partner. Now you need to add to the story by writing a paragraph or two (or three) to the story. It can be any genre, as long as it's family friendly (no squirting blood and gore) and ANYTHING can happen within YOUR paragraph(s). This will be YOUR story! Add your swap-bot name at the end, so we know who to track each story with (IMPORTANT).

  • Send it to your swapbot partner, VIA EMAIL (use swap name in subject line).

  • Sign up for round 4 to pass along your evolving story.

Please only sign up for this swap if YOU ARE COMMITTED TO COMPLETING ALL 5 ROUNDS. Last year in the previous rounds the co-ordinator AND some participants dropped out, which was disappointing as it was a very good swap.

This is meant to be a fun swap, no need to get your knickers in a twist if someone changes the storyline of your original story. It is great to see how the stories evolve.

All completed stories at the end of round 5 will be published on a website to be viewed by all. It is likely you might even receive your story back more than once to work on, depending on how many people sign up.

Minimum 4.8 rating. No unexplained 1's or 3's. This should be an easy one, so don't flake.

In summing up, for each round:

  • Write story paragraph

  • Add swapbot name at the end

  • Send to your partner

Dropping from the swap as the last swap in round 2 is a bit confusing to me. If I add my part then I am already writing a 4th part..... and we are only on round 3.

I have extended the sign up by a day, @Apelser hope you join us, some people have got muddled with the rounds and which bits to add to and what not.

We should all have a story from Round 2, to which we are all adding our bit for Round 3. Round 3 has not started yet, it will tomorrow when swapbot lets me assign partners, it is already the 19th here in Australia.

Some people have received a story for Round 2 which has already been added to and for what ever reason, sent back to them.

Just disreguard this story, as it was sent on for Round 2, the other person who sent it back to you will have to send it on to the correct partner in round 3, if that makes sense???

As long as everyone is sending their stories on and keeping the rounds going, then there is no dramas. Hope you are having fun.

I've made the times in between sign up and sending a little long, as I know life happens, and I wanted to give people the opportunity to have enough time to complete their part of the story and not have stories that weren't sent on because the times were so close together.

I think next time I run this I will shorten the times a little, which MIGHT lessen the confusion.
