This is the 4th swap in a series of Once Upon A Time Journal Swaps.
IF YOU TOOK PLACE IN THE THIRD ROUND: You have received a journal with the beginnings of a story in it. Your job is now to add 4 or 5 pages to that story, and leave your partner an unfinished sentence to pick up at (i.e. "when all of a sudden....), and then send the journal off to your partner.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND: By all means, feel free to join in the fun!
How it's done: Use a new journal, blank book, composition book or something similar, 80 pages at least.
On the front cover, write what the journal is for and who you are, on the back page write your name and address and where to send the journal home when it is full.
Then, in the journal, write the beginning of a story starting with the words "Once upon a time". Keep in mind this is only the start of a story, not the whole thing. After writing 4 or 5 pages of the story, leave your swap partner a sentence fragment to pick up the storyline at ("....when all of a sudden"....).
Upon receiving your story/journal, your partner will read over your story and add 4 or 5 more pages to it, leaving their partner a sentence fragment to start the next part of the story at.
There will be many of these swaps hosted in order to eventually get these journals home to their originators, full of a big long story, pieced together by many creative folks like themselves.
Please, keep the story content to a PG-13 rating. This swap will be USA-only, due to postage and swap receipt/timing issues.
Rating minimum is 4.95; flakers will be culled before partners are assigned. Newbies with well-filled-out profiles are welcome, as long as their rating is high enough. and have completed a bare-bones minimum of 5 mail-based swaps.
