Hi everyone, Not sure if anyone already tried these kind of swaps, but let's have fun with some story writing. We will use a simple tool that is generating roll of story dice available here: https://davebirss.com/storydice/index.html

Now your task will be to roll the dice (up to you if you use 5- or 9-dice version, just remember to use ALL of the pictures in your story), make a screenshot of what got rolled paste and create a story including all those pictures. And as the vacation period started let's write it in a way like it is something that happened to us during our vacation.

Email your short story of at least 1000 words (can be longer!) together with printscreen of the dice to your partners.

You will have 3 partners to send your story to (which means that you will also receive 3 stories :D ). Please remember to use BCC option if sending to all of your partners at once:)

This swap is newbie friendly, open for everyone with nicely filled in profile.

I hope we will enjoy writing and reading each other's stories :)

I cant take a screenshot. so is it OK to write a list of the images instead? My phone is basic..no camera

Watching the swap. Seems perfect except I am not tech savy and need to learn, if i can, how to do that screenshot and put it into my email. This really is a great idea for a swap.

I am glad that this swap seem to be interesting to you :) was afraid how it will be as it is my very first swap created :D Story dice are perfect for improving creativity, I use it also with my kids to improve their storytelling skills. Taking a screenshot should be pretty easy on your computer:) for Windows users it is just to find the so called snipping tool (native in the system) or use prtsc button or key shortcut of shift+windows button+S. No idea how to do it on mac, but I guess there should be a pretty easy way to do it as well. Also it should be possible to simply take a photo of what was rolled. But anyway if you will still have trouble with taking a screenshot, it should be ok, if you write the list of images (or draw them :D ) It is a swap to have fun after all :)

It's a great idea for a swap but the rating requirement you've put is far too low. It will put off some good swappers and also get you a reputation as a host who sets ratings too low. Have a look at this forum post and you'll see what I mean. I'm quite an experienced host and I wouldn't ever set a minimum rating lower than 4.98. For time-intensive craft swaps I'd set it at 4.99.

do we do a different story /rolls for all partners or same one?

AZmom875 07/10/2022 #

On a mac it is SHift, command, 3

@NatashaJane it is up to you :) you can create different stories for each partner or send same one to all
