So what are we going to write? Who will be on the project? Genre, concept, style, purpose? What will our masterful writing project begin, and where will it lead us?

Thoughts:

Lets do a period piece. Maybe one that requires stylized writing and speak patterns.

A corruption of our own history, its the same but different.
- 1920 with aliens
- 1900's with higher level of technology
- 1900's with creatures

I can go on for months.

Have you read Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter? Something like that could be fun. I could go for an alternate history, something like The Black Plague but as a Zombie infection or Sea People sink the Titanic maybe even The Third Reich orchestrated by extraterrestrials. Could be sick.

Those are solid ideas. I think if we go with something like that, we need to pick the historic event, and all read up on it, and decide on a basic concept or idea, but not hammer out details. I think the beauty of our other stories is the element of surprise, and the twists and turns the story takes, because we aren't on the same page, so to speak.

I could see a futuristic flair too. For example, time travel... Major historical figures ripped from their time, brought to the future to either wage war, bring peace, procreate to make evil babies or smart babies, or babies with amazing fashion sense...

3000 AD - Man is at its worse. Because of the years of career focused, money hungry living, our higher forms of life decided not to procreate, while our lowest forms procreated in abundance. Instead of moving forward, we've devolved. The classes divided on a scale like none have seen. Those few left that were born to the great minds of the past living in abundant, lush, self sustaining cities, cut off from all others, protected by the technology that only they possess and understand.

As for the rest of the primitive minds, they are ruled by only wants, needs and desires. Violence, filth, hunger, plagues, and complete anarchy rain. They have no government and no rule of law.


But very few children are born to the High Ones. Sterility is common. There has to be some way to keep their population from dying. Mating with the Primitives is not an option. A plan is devised. We bring the great ones to us, they decide.

Ahhhhhhhh. I'm getting carried away... Writing the whole story in my head now.

But you get my drift!

The lower forms need to water their lawn with Gatorade, they lost the knowledge that water is good, cause Gatorade wanted to make more money. Crops stopped growing people are unhealthy, and they get stupider every day.

This story idea is making me think of a movie I saw... I believe it was called Ideocracy. Do we have any other story ideas? I've purposely restraint from giving it too much thought.

Secret Agents from the future snatching DNA from 20th century pop icons and literary characters.

And the secret long lost recipe to Gatorade. They all search for DNA as a front, but what is really on the agenda is Gatorade brew masters of different points in history. The goal is to create a super human leader of a terrorist organization....we shall call him....Sepentor!

Lets just start writing and we can add our own theme and time frame.

Serpentor Lord of Gatorade... I could get behind that. But what will the Terrorist agenda be? World domination is overrated, maybe the revenue from countless sport commissions using their product exclusively?

Sweet.

World Sports domination through exclusive contracts. I like it.

Our leader always needs to say "This I command!" its his catch praze.

We can have juice assassins, corporate espionage. Yes, the slow takeover of Gatorade.

I have become completely uninterested in this project.

I was kidding, I did not mean to throw a monkey wrench into the project. I just saw an opening for one of my lame corny jokes. Please don't let my dumb comments stop the flow of conversations.

You lie, you want this so much you can't stand it. When there's a movie we'll have Cathy Bates reprise her role as our hero's mom but Adam andler might be too old at this point. We'll need Andy Sandberg.

But seriously I'm up for whatever you guys want to write. Maybe Cassiopeia can start us out with a post and we can all pick up from there. That's how Natalie Flores and Avalon Reborn began, why ruin a working formula?

@ Lycant... It wasn't you, it was the general obnoxiousness of the gatoraid angle.

Anyway - I am currently working on something, and will be posting it soon.

I just got bit by the writing bug. Began doing a rough summary draft of Pokemon: Rune of Darkness. Now I feel like doing the full chapters. Very Happy
