      Short story series: community involvement needed!

      When i was in class, i was thinking about making a short story series for Ld'ing. I like to write now and then, and i like LD's, so why not combine the two? Don't be fooled by my mediocre posts!

      When i say i would like community invlovement, i don't mean you guys would help me write the story.

      You could...

      -be a character in The story
      -help me figure something out in one of your lucids (for both advanced and basic luciders).
      -suggest where the story may go next

      I need your guys' support for this! If it wont be for all you lovely people, i wouldnt be doing this!


      I am planning this story to be about a girl in college, due to both being a girl and in college, since that is what i know best. But don't worry guys, seven eights of the community, this wont be girly, LOL.

      I think this story will be a paranormal sci fi. Like, slightly freaky, and only semi sci fi... That is pretty much just to help get her lucid (what do i mean? you will have to see ). I will not make each update that long since i dont want to bore you, that is why it will be a series.


      If you guys do not want to help but you will read it, please tell me! Tell your friends! LOL

      Woooot *raises hand furiously*

      I'd love to read these short stories. Being a character would be kinda cool too (even if I end up being a lonely plant on a windowsill) lol.

      Cheers

      Maybe it's a dream and if I scream, it will burst at the seams.

      Awesome, i may get the first part up today. Though, all these stories are going to connect. Its probably going to be a novella. That basically means its longer than your average short story, but definitely not a novel's length! Not sure on its title yet, though...

      Been thinking about more specifics as to what it should be about...

      Brooke seems to hold the perfect life to observers, but what they don't see is what is behind the scenes. She is still on the classic journey of self discovery. But what she finds out will surprise everyone... Even herself. Isn't that impossible?

      It should tie dreams and LD's in well with her real life!

      BTW, i had a dream that i was a girl named Brooke the other day in a dream! So, this is about her... I even knew what she looked like since i looked in a mirror.

      I decided to add one more thing to this...

      I know that many of you have said you'd help, so, first of all, i was wondering if i could maybe pick a few things from your DJ's? I may ask the whole community if id be allowed to. I want the dreams she has to seem dream-like. And while i could make it all up, it would be great to use some things that someone has actually dreamed about.

      Also, I may simply ask a question here, but can i pm you guys if i have a question too? Just because the less people that know what could happen, the better.

      Okay, i actually started a thread asking what kind of future this story. Shoudld ALLUDE to. As in, its pretty much in present day, but a certian utopian future is important. I started a thread for it in hopes more people would answer... None so far xD. I can always tink of it myself if need be.

      First part! I will post the rest in their own thread, and it will merely be for me to post the chapters so that they're easy to find. This thread will be for feedback and help.

      Spoiler for Part 1: I am Not Perfect:

      More dream parts are involved later. What so you guys think?

      Thanks Checker! I wrote the first part already, which is above your post. I started a new threadnfor its entries so it's uncluttered http://www.dreamviews.com/artists-co...lp-needed.html. Autpid title typos xD.

      I was going to update the op, but i apparently cant after x minutes unless i contact an administrator, which i might do...

      you are quite interesting, now aren't you? Well, to be in it you'd have to understand what is going on and therefore read it. First part is up, a few posts above your.

      Ya know, you probably will be in it. You would make a humorous additon .

      Oh, and the story will appeal to everyone, I hope. BTW, call me LDS.

      Lol well don't disappoint Gavin - put him in it and make him girly!

      In fact, this could be his character right here:



      Oh I want in by the way!

      I Pm'ed you, Darkmatters.

      IDK if anyone has noticed I already wrote the first part? It is now in spoiler tags a few posts up, and I linked to the story. I just PM'ed Ophelia, so she'll also add the link to my initial post. It is too late for me to edit it myself now xD.

      Plus, like I said earlier, I am making each update short so no one gets discouraged to stop reading it. It should take five minutes.

      Oh I definitely read the 1st part! In spite of the iPad-related typos you have a way with words. It's a good and very promising beginning.

      Thanks, Darkmatters! I just wanted to make sure, lol.

      Well... For normal forum posts, i dont think it matters if i spell wrong and what not. It is important for grammer to be right for a stoey, though.

      TBH, I didn't even notice if there were any typo's in the stoey (love it - it's the way a 4-year-old says story! ).. I was just trying to be funny.

      Thanks you guys, last night when i was trying to fall to sleep, i thought of more bulk I could add to the story. It is gonna be a good time!

      And did you both typo, more, or... What??...

      Btw.. I thought last night, it would be cool if Brooke went on Dv. I could make a separate account for her, and her posts would be related to the story... Of course that is against the rules but it would be cool xD.
