Village Commons is a new project here on HW, a place for members to work together and collaborate on short stories. Basically, think of it as sort of a bunch of mini Community Stories. But a whole lot less complicated, hopefully.

Basically, there are two different ways that stories can get going in here. You could come up with a great idea with another member, and post it in here for further development. But, maybe you came up with an idea yourself, but you'd like to work on it with other HWers - that's fine too. Just post a thread in here and take it away.

Now. This room doesn't have many rules attached to it - this type of idea is somewhat new, thus we are going to leave a pretty long leash on this thing. Please bear this in mind as you post stories.

So, let's come up with some awesome stories, and fill this room up with amazing HW talent!

Just to clarify. Y'all can collaborate on more than just short-stories too if you want. If you have a book idea that you want to collaborate with, go for it :D

This sounds like it could be so much fun! Dialogue is especially easier with two or more writers. I would happily make up a story with someone(s). I like fantasy creatures, I am fine with utilizing magic or writing without it, but I don't care for too much violence (some is fine, but I don't like cruelty or gruesome details). Anyone interested? I'll see if I can come up with a basic idea or a starting scene to spark the imagination, but I'd be more than happy to help someone develop their idea instead.

I'm thinking about starting one here, just to kick things off, but it might fit better in HWSF, are there plans for this to happen there?

I think I would really enjoy working on a story with you, Layla! I'll pm you about it. :D

I think Leah already poked me somewhere and told me to make one in SF. Sure, if you'll use it, you can have it, as far as I know! :D

You can set it up yourself if you like, or I'll get over there as soon as I can. :P

What should I call it over there? I'll go ahead and see if I remember how to make forums.

So, I'll make it over there and cross-post the announcement. Is that good?

No idea. :P

Sounds good. :D

I suppose we could bring it up in the planning room over there to get name suggestions.

Good idea. I'm not at home currently, so I don't think I can post it. I can in a few hours though.

EDIT: Posted in Briefing Room

Or you could just start a thread in here, since that's what this room is for *hint hint* ;)
