    I wonder if people could guess who wrote which piece. That could be fun. Just brainstorming.... or farting, hard to tell.
    Neat idea, Pats. Could do a listing of two columns-- #'s for one; names of another. Then we could try to match them up. Remember those matching games where you drew lines to match the word with the answer?

    Cool, now there are three dentists! Although I voted for posting it in the traditional serial format, I can see it being good for a change to do it all in one hunk.
    Can any of you three who voted to post it in it's entirety tell me how it would be better that way?
    I feel like I'm getting on the fence with this issue.

    One a day. It is fun being the writer of the day. We could have a guessing game of who wrote it though. Only until the end of the day...then the name could be given.

    The authors' contributions blend together better, even if you know who they are, when it's read as one continuous narrative.

    A little off topic but it has to do with the Halloween Story. I don't think this has happen over the years but I would love to see individual short stories done to honor this tradition.

    That sounds interesting. How would that work? How many words per story etc?

    I may have spoken too soon; there are rules about short stories being posted on the Board.
