I feel a chill as I realize that Spam might be the name of a new God. This Being has seen fit to send it's enigmatic words to you. Translate for us, oh noble Jane. What would Spam do?

I remmeber doing one of these a long time ago on a dial up BBS I used before the internet was.. well, the internet. At least before it was the form we al know today.

Anyway, it was some fantasy story. I'm pretty sure no one else was really writing on it an I added like 5 chapters.

Kind of makes me wish I could go back and read it again.

I did one of these back in the dialup days. It turned out to be pretty fun but everyone gets upset when someone steers a story in a direction inconsistant with where they wanted to see it go. I know it happened to me.

I distinctly remember pointing out a factual/consistancy error that someone had written in and just hammering away at how the story didn't make sense after it. :P

Anyone else ever read the round-robin story between the girl and the guy that gets passed around the net every so often? The girl wanted to write a sentimental story of a woman lamenting over a lost love over tea. The guy wanted epic space battles and submarine bases. They kept killing each other's characters. It's hilarous.

I got curious about this, and these lines are from an actual book.

Title: The Old And the Young [I VECCHI E I GIOVANI] (1928)
Author: Luigi Pirandello [1867-1936]

Authorized Translation from the Italian by
C. K. Scott-Moncrieff [1889-1930]

I've looked these things up before, and they are usually from old books, usually foriegn, which had been translated into english.
