    The cross-blog CYOA sounds like it would be completely impossible to pull off – but I want to do it anyway. Lemme know when it goes down ;).

  2. DeadGod says:

    Yes, I think to pull it off you would need to write a scene, leave some choices unlinked, and then at the bottom of the page leave a “See a choice that doesn’t have a link? Write it yourself!” In fact, it would be nice to have a canned intro and a canned “write it yourself” texts pre-written. If you want to contribute, just copy the canned texts, then insert your story and choices in the middle.

    Maybe it would be a good idea to have a “definition” page as part of the canned “write it yourself” text. If the reader is interested, they follow the link to a page that basically sums up the information you’ve provided in this post.

    In any event, I would contribute. If it really takes off, I might contribute multiple times!

    I think it’s a great idea but I’m still mulling over the practicalities. DeadGod’s suggestion is a good one, though. Hmmm…. more thought required.

    But yeah, count me in.

    Count me in, could be fun. Besides if something is worth trying, its worth failing at :)

    If the internet is not for the propagation of crazy idea, what is it for?

    Add me to this list of participants if you get this rolling/

    Do you:
    Open it?
    Search for traps?

    Ok, that’s more than enough people to get started :D

    Watch this space!

  9. Elton says:

    I’d also participate.

  10. Sara says:

    I would like to participate! This sounds groovy! :D

  11. This sounds pretty spiffy! Might try something on a smaller scale with a friend. I will def have to keep an eye on your story!

  12. I think I could squeeze some crosslinks and paragraphs into I’m up for this adventure, Greywulf. What I would suggest is that we first write the situation with insert blog url here in brackets. A blogger reads that post, sends an email with a note saying, I’ll take opiton A, and when the first blogger gets that post, he changes option A to the second blogger’s URL. It’s kind of like time travel–one might have to go back to each blog multiple times to see all the options. That builds traffic to each site, and who’s to say that old blogs have to remain fixed once written. I know that wordpress allows us to edit our blogs at any time. More chaos! I love it.

    Most excellent!

    @Ken It would be great to have you on board!

    I’ll post up the Introduction and first paragraph by the end of the week, and leave the links unlinked (so to speak) until the next writer has published their contribution. Claim ownership of the links in that post – not here! – so that I (and other folks) can easily see which links still need writers and which don’t.
