Here’s what I propose: (And, if anyone has better ideas, we’ll use those instead. It doesn’t even have to be Hamlet; I just figured that would be easier than coming up with an original plot.) 1. Everybody who’s interested chimes in here. 2. I’ll make a rotation list, so everybody knows whose turn it is (crossed posts wouldn’t be fun). I’ll post an updated list whenever someone new chimes in. 3. When it’s your turn, you write one scene. There’s a good scene-by-scene synopsis at http://www.compusmart.ab.ca/hamlet/ham_sum.htm Make your version as short or as long as you feel inclined. 4. Take is as seriously or as silly-ly as you want. As long as you’ve having fun, whatever you write is OK. 5. We post each new scene in the Creativity section of the wiki at: http://wiki.monkeyfilter.com/Category:Creativity to avoid clogging up the thread. The writing rotor, comments, and questions can go in this thread. 6. If a character, place, or event appears or is discussed for the first time in your scene, you get to name it and decide how it fits into the setting. Add chracters, scenes, and events as you see fit. I can write a sentence or two establishing a setting, just to get us started. 7. Don’t worry about the quality of writing and editing. This is just for giggles. 8. ….. 9. Profit! (Just kidding. No profit involved.)
Amorous George: Monkeyfilter Original Bodice-Ripper OK, I’m really intrigued by the idea of writing a collaborative, round-robin bodice-ripper (romance novel) version of Hamlet as discussed in this thread. If nobody else is, I’ll ask Tracicle to eek this thread and we’ll never speak of it again. Or, you can just tease me mercilessly about it for the rest of my life.
