Since our community fiction project has died, I thought we would try something else.  I saw this being done on another site and I thought it looked fun.  It's still community fiction, but you're only allowed to add 5 words each post.

How it works
 Post only 5 words at a time
 Your 5 words must continue the story
 No fair double posting.
 No conversations in the thread, just your 5 words (otherwise the story may get lost)
 Pay attention to punctuation, if the last poster did not include a period, you must continue the sentence, etc.

I'll Start.

The fire was finally starting

Yes, but don't include anything from the previous posts or else it will just get too long.  So your reply should have been:

(ps - could we consider copying the entire previous and pasting until it reaches paragraph length?  with the personal info on the sidebar, each post is much bigger than one line, so it'll become difficult to read quickly.)

nearby foxhole and called out,

NOTE:  I have a suggestion that may open this up to a more cohesive narrative & flow.  But I'll defer final judgment to the creator.  The idea - let us fall somewhere in the 5-10 word range.  It'll let us define a scenario more succinctly.  With only 5 words, we may just be playing a game of posting prepositional phrases.

Two cents spent.
