We-Write ~ Partner Up!

in freewrite •  last year  (edited)

Partnering Up Is Back!


I told you it would be that time again!

For all of you that enjoy coming together with another freewriter to have some fun, this contest is for you!

What is a We-Write?


A We-Write is a fun way to write a story with a partner using the daily prompt given by @mariannewest.

The idea is to find a partner either by your own contacts or through the comment section, then come together to write a complete story.

How Do We Play?

Written by: @brisby

There are three ways to do this. They require correspondence through comments, Discord, Steemit Chat, email, or a shared document. Google doc is a free option. @snook wrote a terrific post explaining how to share a document if you have never made one. Here is her post. To work out any kinks, @snook and I beta tested the We-Write process and our story can be read here

Helpful tip: Plan how post payouts will be shared with your partner beforehand to avoid any misunderstandings.😁

Option 1

  1. Pick a partner and open up a shared Google doc.
  2. Decide who will begin writing.
  3. Prepare a timer for each writer. Alternate writing for 1 minute each.
  4. Use the word “Go” to let the other know that it was their turn.
  5. Use the prompt provided.
  6. Put the word/phrase at the top of the page.
  7. The first freewriter sets a timer for 1 minute and begins writing.
  8. When the minute is up, type the word “GO” to let the next writer know to begin.
  9. Carry on, alternating turns, until 10 minutes have passed (each has written for 5 minutes).
  10. Combine the sentences (cleaning up the formatting and removing the “Go’s” if you wish).
  11. Place the “cleaned up” version of the story below the exercise.
  12. Submit the link and then enjoy reading that day’s freewrites!

Option 2

  1. Pick a partner and open up a shared Google doc.
  2. Decide who will begin writing.
  3. Set a timer for 10 minutes.
  4. First freewriter writes one sentence.
  5. Then, the other freewriter writes one sentence.
  6. Switch back and forth until the 10 minutes are over.

Option 3

- This option is especially good if you can't find a time which suits both writers

  1. Each freewriter writes a 5 minute freewite.
  2. Exchange the freewites (This can be done in comments, through Discord, Steemit Chat, or email)
  3. Write 5 more minutes on the partners freewrite and finish the story.
  4. You can both publish the freewrites and if you want, add a bit on how that kind of writing felt to you. Was it fun? Difficult? Want to do it again?

I've done the part 2
Eagle Scout Parts 1 and 2

I've posted the story.
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mr-neil/eagle-scout-freewrite-wewrite-with-anonymummy

Please also post it yourself and write some extra words to keep Cheetah at bay.

Excellent. I've never done the Part 2 before, so you've left me with a challenge. Let's do it.
😎

Soooo, only thing I don't get is where do the contestants post their completed piece?

Do you mean the final story? Like which person posts the finished story?

Yes, that. But also, is the story posted as a comment here? Or where?

Yes, you can post the finished link here. You and your partner can both post the finished story, or just one or the other.

You can post it as your own post and then leave a link in the comments - or, if you like to keep your feed a certain way, i.e. only animal pictures or something like that, and your story doesn't fit there, you can post it in the comments.
Some people do both.

Best wishes to all...I'll have to sit this one out. Have fun with it, and a happy day.

Hi! I am a robot. I just upvoted you! Readers might be interested in similar content by the same author:
https://steemit.com/freewrite/@freewritehouse/we-writes-are-fun-for-two-plus-another-chance-to-win

cheetah - why would you think that? They are not interested. that contest was 2 weeks ago and is all finished. Our readers are interested in reading this post. But thank you for your vote!!! We love your vote! Just your comments need some work. They are kind of spammy...

This idiot bot needs HUMAN CURATION!

Anyone still want a partner? Not sure when the deadline is...I can do option 3. I'm on discord at ntowl#9845.

I will do one with you. How about you go first, make a post, post it here, I will copy and paste, and finish the story. Sound good?

ok. I'll post it in about 30 minutes, I need to finish something first. Thanks!

Here's the first half:

@tristancarax. Tagging you just in case you don't see the reply

@ntowl - Since we can have more than one entry, I would like to write a first part and have you finish it. Are you down for this?

Absolutely @tristancarax! Let me know when you have it done

That was dark.

Poor old Charlie should have kept his mouth shut.

What a bad camp.

Is anybody out there still looking for a writing partner? I'm interested! Option 3 works best for me, especially if the other person sets up the shared Google doc and sends me a link to it. (I'm still learning about that stuff!)

@kaerpediem might be interested...

Okay, otherwise I had also heard from @ntowl so I do have a place to start! Thanks!

I read we can work with multiple people so I can do one. I'll set up the document and post a link here, though maybe you can write the beginning? I just wrote one so I'd like to try an ending.

HEre the doc all set up. just write and let me know when you're done @scribblingramma - or if you've found another partner already.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1x95a9qMfqLbEei5cH7Tkwyh8AeS6iSIlK3_nymusCr8/edit?usp=sharing

Oh thanks, that's great! I will get busy with that!

GReat! Let me know if you have any issues with the document.

Here is the first half. I admit I have no idea where I was going with this; in fact, it was a relief to realize you were going to have to figure that out, not me! LOL!!! Good luck! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1x95a9qMfqLbEei5cH7Tkwyh8AeS6iSIlK3_nymusCr8/edit

You gave me a challenge for sure! Here is the completed story:

I love the way you ended this story!! Thanks for partnering with me.

I love the way you
Ended this story!! Thanks for
Partnering with me.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Post your part somewhere so we can give it an upvote - you can add @ntowl's as a quote. all you need to do is put > in front of each paragraph with a space.

Here ya go! I hope I did this right; I'm still getting the hang of the we-writes. https://steemit.com/wewrite/@scribblingramma/we-write-scouting-adventure

A completed freewrite by @iamjadeline who started it off and I completed the second part:

https://steemit.com/steempress/@happycrazycon/we-writewithiamjadelineeaglescout-xy58talv5k

It was fun though we took longer time this time because of each of us being occupied in our own ways.

I also continue @happycrazycon's story. It was fun. Especially to read how your partner finished your dangling story. Lol.

https://steemit.com/freewrite/@iamjadeline/we-write-with-happycrazycon-for-freewritehouse-e13c02bb6b233

@iamjadeline and @happycrazycon - did you publish your solo pieces as well?

Yes we did, I believe. We published in on the single prompt day and worked on each other's piece after that only. Are we doing it correctly?

I'm looking for a we-write partner if anyone is willing.

I'll do this with you if you accept. I prefer the 3rd option.

Would you like to go first or have me go first?

You can each write a first - then exchange it and write a second. That way, you get 2 entries :)

Can we write with multiple people?

Yes, you can. Each pair is treated as a separate entry.

I had to read this again. I got it now.

@wordymouth - care to write a beginning this time around?

Writing should be there. If not, you can copy and paste from here -->

@freewritehouse

Very funny! I didn't expect they would be shooming. hahaha

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for being my writing partner.

I didn't expect the shroom usage either! Haha What a turn...and everybody hates Luke? Poor guy haha

@Stinawog and I are going to do it!

excellent use of fingers!!!

Entry #11, with thanks to @sarez for tagging me to do something I never would have done without a nudge! It was fun! And it's not done, @sarez, if you want to add to or revise this, and please do post your own version - title, hashtags, images, your choice! I love seeing how different minds work. Thanks to everyone at #freewritehouse and #curie for this.
