In December 2013, the GRNW GoodReads group asked for volunteers to be a part of the first GRNW Round Robin!

What’s a Round Robin? It’s a story game where one writer writes a part of the story, and then passes it on to another writer. Part of the game is that as the writer, you have no control over how the story goes before or after your section; you only have control over the story and characters during your part.

Round Robins are a fun way to “play” with other writers, and for readers, it’s a neat way to look at how different writers and different writing styles can carry one story until the end.

Participating Authors

The Round Robin will start on GoodReads on January 5, and we have an amazing line-up of authors participating.

1- Kim Fielding (Jan. 5)
2- Andrea Speed (Jan. 20)
3- Talya Andor (Feb. 3)
4- Jeffrey Ricker (Feb. 17)
5- Tara Spears (Mar. 3)
6- L.E. Franks (Mar. 17)
7- Sam Schooler (Mar. 31)
8- Morticia Knight (Apr. 14)
9- Sasha L. Miller (Apr. 28)
10- E.E. Ottoman (May 12)
11- Megan Derr (May 26)

Round Robin Structure and Length

For those wondering about the Round Robin structure and length, each author’s section will have to fit into one GoodReads post, which means 12,000 characters (including spaces) or around 2,200 words. Sections can be shorter than that, but they cannot be longer.

We’ll be announcing each section as they are posted to the Round Robin folder on GoodReads, and we can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

But what will the story be about??

In December, GRNW GoodReads group members voted on a selection of story prompts, and the winning prompt is Library Pirates. What does Library Pirates mean? We’ll find out!! 🙂

So come join us! It should be a fun ride! (Arrrrrr!)
