Nairaland - Making A Story Out Of This Forum. by Dygeasy(m): 3:02pm On Jun 05, 2013
Hello respected writers and highly esteemed readers. Mr. Moderator how do you do?

Time to do something fun I guess. Yeah right!

Many days ago, I was writing and then suddenly an idea came to my mind and I'll tell you guys about it.
At first I wanted to do it all alone (selfish me... Lol) but I haven't been able to bring myself to starting and then I thought it'd be more fun bringing more people into it.

So here's the isht;

.
The spirit told me I could write a story/series titled NAIRALAND and my own spirit told me it'd be fun doing so. Its gonna be like this, we have over one million registered members here with different monikers and each username comes with 'its' own e-personality and at a time or many times each of us must have come across a username that's always like 'in your eyes/way'. So the users that must have caught your attention, basically to anybody interested in writing, would be made into characters and they can be linked together in a series of events and make a story. Nairaland could be a school, country, anywhere. That's to be decided when the story begins... If it ever does. Its gonna be about romance, comedy, politics and every different thing that anybody/writer can think of to keep the story alive. I hope you get the drift now.

Now I'm thinking we could do something collaborative and writers here can show interest that is if you don't see my idea as dumb.

LarrySun, Ishilove, I hope you've got my back on this.

P.S: you should have a thread in this section if you're going to show interest at all.

CREDIT: The idea of collaborative writing on here originally belongs to LarrySun so boss pardon me.

DISCLAIMER: every moniker being used to create a character is purely out of the participating writers' imagination. Nothing should be taken personal and it isn't to defame you (if your username is being used) if something negative is written about you. Its all part of the fun.


Interested writers can PM me or indicate it on this thread.

Thanks all.

...Dygeasy.

I found this interesting. Although, initially i had a similar idea but i declined it due to the work i have at hand.
My idea was making a drama thread in the literature section, were an individual NL moniker would be the actors of the drama. But when i thought of the chit chats that would make the thread bumpy, i just have to wave it aside.
Anyways, that's a good inventive.

it can be done in a form of a novel or drama. I think we could try and work on our direct speech so that we will not get it wrong. You wanna give it a try?

What i mean by drama, is a play in which the play/acting will be done via live comments by the monikers who would be the characters of the play

e.g Eze Promoe acting as Romeo
HBG acting as Juliet.

Action!

It will not work, even if does it will not be coherent and will become a charade .

If u have written before, u would found out it takes a lot to build a character .

Eg if u are righting romance you might want to start off with a Jew man who graduates to a love-vendor.
Writing collabo with people of different ideology , writing prowess ,,will only make the character ill developed.

I'm all for it, sure there is nothing lost in trial.

However, for it to even has a decent chance to working, the writing would have to define their character , then they can be paired, with similar personality .
when they two personality meet who, first to write will have the privilege to Steer the discus to his desire.

Eg I'm a man writing of fancying isilove, and we are paired , I will be responsive to develop my character on how he feels for ishilove, and my desires for her.
While ishilove will develop her character a well.

When we met , even though ishilove ha written previously of her displeasure with me and her desire not to have sex with me, I could steer the discuss into getting her intoxicated for example , and having her.

Then her in turn, would have no other option but to flow up, write her displeasure of being taken advantage of.

Man forget it , it can't work.
Cos even if this scenario was to play out I will dive into banging her from the get go. And she will dive Into resisting me.
