I came up with this idea together with @Buecherwurm though an idea she posted in the forum. If I am stepping on toes with using someone's idea, I apologize. I haven't seen a swap like this in the past few months.

For this swap, we will write a story together. Each person who joins this round will have one partner, International, and we will email our stories to our partners. Hopefully this will help us keep track of our stories, and allow lots to participate. :) This will be an EMAIL swap, sent to your email address on file, NOT sent through swap-bot messages.

The first line of your story should include your swap-bot ID, and be sure to put the swap name in the subject line of the email.

As host, I will send out an email to each person who signs up before partners are assigned, and you must reply to the email, or you will be dropped from the swap. This is a requirement.

This is round 1, so we will all be starting a story, You will write 2-4 paragraphs of a story, then email that story start on to your partner once partners are assigned. If you get your story start emailed on time, you will rate your partner a 5. You will add to that story start, then pass that on in round 2. I will allow 4 weeks between sign up date and send by date to give everyone a chance to write their story.

Your story should be written in English, but your writing does not need to be 'perfect'. If your English, spelling or grammar aren't great, it's ok. This is for fun, not for a 'grade'. OK?

For a story start, you can choose any topic. When writing, keep the blood, sex & gore to a minimum. If you would like a swap with those options, please feel free to use this idea and start your own story. :)
If you can't join the next round, please contact the host @USAFwife and we will work something out. You don't have to join each round, but we want to keep track of our stories, so we can get them back in the end.

All group members are welcome to join. Remember, when I send out an email, you are required to reply. If you don't reply, you will be banned from the swap.

Sign up for the swap by Monday Oct 16th. Send by Nov 13th. I will send out a group email Thursday Oct 12th.

If you have any questions, please PM me.

If you need a story start idea, you can use the swap image, or one of these story starts. (Not required, just an option):

**He looked at me, and that's how I knew.

**It was April, and the man on TV was talking rain when I met Sammy Peters.

**He was a very ordinary man, too ordinary, with his suit, and perfectly combed hair, and trimmed mustache, and normal height; in fact, he would have gone unnoticed, if it weren't for his yellow eyes.

**The book lay unopened for centuries.

**The orchestra was playing a song she'd heard before, but she couldn't remember where.
