I have an idea!

I haven’t posted in a while I know but I’ve been busy with school and productions and… okay I’m just making up excuses. Anyway, I have a brilliant idea. I have seen a lot of writing prompts and things like that on this site but for me it’s not the idea that’s the problem. lying around my room are a bunch of half written stories that i can’t be bothered finishing or I have major writer’s block on. So, my brilliant plan is to create a blog for everyone to put their unfinished work that they have no interest in finishing, it could be half a paragraph or half a book, and then someone or multiple someones can complete on the same blog. In the post they would just have to acknowledge the persons work they had finished, you could even get it off a website of unfinished stories. Maybe this is a terrible idea and maybe I am the only one who has this problem but who knows. tell me in the comments if this is a good idea and if you would like to become a contributor to the blog or if i should even do this blog at all. (i won’t start it unless someone says it’s a good idea)

Thanks

-p

UPDATE: this is definitely happening which I probably should’ve said a while ago but anyway. It’s called ‘The Unfinished Library’ so… yeah

anyway, bye

Great idea! Writing is a process and too often we're scared off publishing because of how polished it has to be. Just because something is unfinished doesn't mean it hasn't got anything brilliant about it.

It sounds like a great idea. Sign me up! You should make a shared google doc so multiple people can work in real time on a doc. I haven't been on the website for a week and haven't posted for more than that. But I'm back!

Cool adding you now. i'm not sure how to do a google doc but if you could teach me or set it up or whatever that would be really cool.

I’d love to be added! At my school we call this ‘tandem writing’ where one person starts and another one continues on!

Yes, this is perfect, I have about, 700 (exaggerated) unfinished stories that I have become bored of. So, each time I start a new one, I get another idea for a different one, and the other one is left in the dust. Great idea poppy!
