I have a public swap for this and now here is one for just this group. Feel free to join both if you want.

For this swap you will need a composition journal and your imagination.

What you do is put your Swap-Bot ID and the swap name on the front of the journal. On the back page put your address to send home for when the journal is full. You can decorate if you feel like it.

Next you give your partner a writing prompt of any kind. Package up the journal and then wait for partners to be assigned. Once assigned, send them off.

When you get your journal, use the writing prompt to write a short story. Anywhere from 2-10 pages. It may be a little more or less, but give some life to the story, but don't take forever.

Here are a few links to writing prompts here here here here and here Thank you Hollydays for the links. Hope they help everyone!

After you finish your story, go to the next clean page and give a new writing prompt for your next partner. I'll do more of these swaps so everyone can have a little story book sent home to them.

Requirments: Newbies allowed with a well filled out profile. 4.9 rating. No unexplained 1s or 3s in the past 6 months. I might be able to angel, but I really hope I don't have to.

Any questions/suggestions, just ask. Happy Swapping.

Artistic, I'm always in favor of swaps where a story is to be written an this is an interesting twist.

I'm afraid with such a short sign up time, people won't see the swap and it'll be dropped. I think I'll check your non-group version and join it and hope for good luck in one or both.

June: Hope to see you in both of DeviousDomi's swaps, public and group.

Okay, have journal and prompt and names in place. Will mail Tuesday when the P.O. is next open.

When is the sign up for the next part. I'm sending what I think is a very pretty composition book, I'd love to get it back full of stories but fear it'll get stuck someplace -- can you at all follow up urging people to join the next round or if not send the journal home? I think I'll send this note as a PM also.
