    What rules? C'mon join the fun. If not, then you can start the next one with your own rules, or lack thereof. Come to think of it, we should start another as soon as this one is done, and see if we can always have something going.

    That's the idea, Terry!

    So who gets final edit of this, Squire. Or will we try to do it by committee? I have a couple ideas already, that shouldn't change everything too much. The "air conditioner" idea is long out the window. So instead of a salesman, the "salesman" should be perceived as a delivery person. Maybe our narrator was expecting a large air conditioner, but a salesman wouldn't be taking boxes large enough for a human body from door to door.

    It'll be by committee, but we'll divy up sections to rewrite, I think. I'm open to suggestions. I'm pretty new at this.

    I like the idea of divying up the sections to re-write. One minor suggestion I have (that can be thrown out the window if need be) is to allow Committee Member 1 to re-write Section 1. Then send that off to the person responsible for Section 2, etc. After that process concludes, perhaps the entire committee can take a final look at the revised tale and offer any additional suggestions to polish the peice. Once again, just some thoughts to help organize things. Please feel free to use or not use and/or adjust my suggestions accordingly. I'm flexible and willing to do this in a way that works best for all involved.

    I like HorrorScribe's idea. It will keep some consistency to the style. However, I think we should hammer out plot points before any rewrite begins so we know what to foreshadow or forget from the very beginning.

    I was thinking along the same lines as HS, too; and we DEFINTELY need to hammer out thematic and plots as well. I'm looking into getting a section set up where we can do this on the forum.

    Why not just do it here? Or do you want to pull the story and this discussion into a whole new section?

    No, this new section would be used for the people who contributed and/or are doing the rewriting. Then the final product can be displayed somewhere for all to see.

    Discussions on plot points and what should be left out can continue here. The new section would be for the rewriting.

    I was surprised by that, too. I'm really surprised no one has added anything overnight. But unless Squire wants to delete one of the posts, we'll leave it up to the next contributor as to which thread to follow. In fact I'll add a note to my post and let everyone know, to avoid the confusion.

    Was thinking of some titles for the piece today:

    Cold Cuts
    War Wounds
    Slice of Life
    Healing

    and I had one more that I liked, but of course I forgot it.
