    the results should be interesting

    hit me up with ideas for the story we can tell...something we all can relate to and something that can carry the story for 12 chapters (each chapter should be between 30-40 bars/lines)....I'd like to have everyones input on this....what do YA'LL want to write about


    POST TOPICS/IDEAS HERE (Due Date:Oct 16)



    I'm thinking something that deals with suspense and action

    do ya'll wanna write about a make believe character?...or write about nature...an object???...a journey???

    ?????

    October 12th is a Tuesday, and I won't be able to check it until the 16th,. My internet is currently down at my house, and I've been keepin busy with school, etc. I also agree with writing what we go through throughout the week we have to write our chapter, IDK I just think if not it may come off a little forced, but some of the ideas posted, like making it into a mystery, or suspenseful is good-thats life in a way anyway.

    BTW, when you do email the updates, email it to IceCherry17@aol.com instead of BtheArtist@aol.com.

    Thanks, and PeAce-

    Since we have 12 chapters, 12 poets, I was thinking about something that has to do with the 12. I dont know, maybe 12 months, or something that has to do with 1 year(12 months.) I dont know. Maybe someone can expand from that.
    I dont know if the whole story could be a good idea, because some peoples styles of poetry are not a story type and that would crete something forced. But it can be of a related theme. Something that everyone can relate to and would not interfere with the styles of every poet, but, in a way, maybe, show the same thing from different prospectives.

    PS: This is just my opinion, I dont mean to say that this whole Storybook has been a bad idea. But It is my opinion on writing it.
    I was also thinking about putting this into print. But that would require substancial amount of money and a long time to design. But who know...

    You have my e-mail now, right?

    Man I'm thinking of writing an abstract love poem, I dunno. Maybe base the poem on a movie like Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, or 25th Hour.. Butterfly Effect, Donnie Darko.. Something like that. I like narrative poetry, maybe a mystery. Maybe someone just write some crazy shit, and the next person just adds on, like a cypher.. a well thought out one. I dunno.. When ya sendin the email?
