I got asked how long I thought each story should be and how much time each writer would have to write their segments.
I typically consider a chapter to be about 3000 words. If you can make your point in 1500 words, God bless you. I am too verbose for that. However, the stories themselves may take one chapter or three chapters – or in the case of the old woman, 7 to 10 or more!
To that end, I would say most writers can put together 2000 words or 3000 words in a week – once they start.
So the question becomes, when do we all start?
Uh, well… Soon.
Anybody who’s interested should be sending me a message letting me know. After you and I can discuss what you’re going to work on, then you should probably go ahead and start working. In a week, send me what you have. If it’s 10 words or 3000, I need to look at it and make sure we’re all on the same page so to speak.
After that, we will have some modifications and revisions, and once all the stories come together there will be editing to make sure they speak with uniform voice.
I consider all that secondary to the initial effort of everyone writing something and bringing it to the table.
So if you have a segment you like, and you are ready to start, get started! The sooner we start, the sooner we finished and the sooner we can roll the sucker out!
