Hey all.

Ok, first thing's first. I thought the Eagle discussion topic was a fantastic success, and a good show of what this community is for. I'd love to think of inexperienced writers being able to use it as a resource. I hope many other threads are so successful.

Ok, the main reason for this post. I'm a bit sad that I just don't have time for as much writing as I'd like to do, and especially sad that I seem to be neglecting AW for Star Wars at the moment. However, I really do lack the time to actually keep writing everything I want to write. Therefore, I've decided...

I want to start a joint project with another author or several authors.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the principle, in larger fandoms, two or more well known writers often join up to write something. The procedure is to set up a new account and write through that one, with all parties knowing the password. In many cases, each author writes from the perspective of a single character, but that isn't essential. One person writes one chapter, then the next writes his or her chapter.

The reason is that I have quite a few things I want to write, and a few rough plots and stuff sketched out, and I'd love to be able to see it take form with the aid of some of the ridiculously talented individuals here. As you'd only write every second or third chapter, it should be pretty easy to do, and it'd be a fun experiment I reckon.

Anyway, anyone else got a story they don't have time to tell? Reply if interested.
