Default Mary-Sue Round Robin Game

Okay...here are the rules for this game.

Our participants are:

Myself
Sandra (SF4-EVER)
Beatlebangs
Jim (JDanRyan)
Tina (Beatlegirl9977)
MonaMe
Kristi (ImaginePeace78)
Magill

Anyone else is welcome to join at any time, just let me know and we will put you in.

The rules are thus:

Each person writes 2-3 sentences (approximately a paragraph) and emails it (NOT on list, private email) to the NEXT PERSON ON THE LIST ONLY. You don't get to see what is happening until it comes back to you, and each person gets a chance to write their piece. Please try to take no longer than 48 hours for turnaround.

I will try to start this by tomorrow and send my piece to Sandra, who will send it to BB, and so on...

Hope this meets with everyone's approval. Let me know if you have suggestions before I start tomorrow.

WRITE ON!

If this turns out *half* as fun as the goofiness that went on last night on the Mary Sue topic, this is going to be VERY interesting!! Can't wait!

And so it would be a crime against nature for any generation to take the world crisis so solemnly that we would put off doing those things for which we were intended for in the first place, the oppurtunity to do good work, to fall in love, to enjoy friends, to hit a ball and to bounce a baby." --Allistar Cooke

Okay...if there are no new takers by the morning, this'll be our final list:

Myself
Sandra (SF4-EVER)
Beatlebangs
Jim (JDanRyan)
Tina (Beatlegirl9977)
MonaMe
Kristi (ImaginePeace78)
Magill
Angel
Kristin (lennon4)
Anna (BrazilianFlag)
Beatlegirl273

Just to reiterate the rules, this will be done by OFF LIST E-MAIL. You write 2-3 sentences (approximately a paragraph) and pass it on ONLY to the next person on the list. That person adds their sentences, and so on,until we get all the way around, and we keep going. You only get to see what has happened when you get it back.

Please try to take no longer than 48 hours for turnaround. You only need to email the next person on the list. Beatlegirl273 -- since you are the last person on the list, you send it back to me.

I'll start this going in the morning if there are no more additions. But if you read this thread late and want to join, no problem...let us know.
