The Great Blog Experiment

So my brilliant friend, Diana Peterfreund, decided to put a myth to rest and has come up with a fun and interesting way to do so. The myth - that someone could "steal" your writing idea. She selected a group of writers (and I was one - YEA!) and gave us a single sentence for an idea - "A young woman confronts her parents after discovering she has inherited telekenetic powers."

That's it - the premise - the concept - the idea. And we were all instructed to write a scene using this idea. She began posting them on her blog today to prove to everyone just how different the scenes would be given the writers style and voice.

It should be very interesting and I hope you all decide to go over and check it out.

BTW - my story is today!

Thanks, lady m! I love Diana's idea and really hope it puts some minds as ease.

I think it will.

I had the same issue with our band. Everyone kept saying... Those 3 chords have been used before...

I said, "Yeah, but it's the way we use them that will make them better!"

LOL on the three notes. I was an 80's headbanger and was rather dismayed when my friend taught me the entire bass line to every Motley Crue song on the Shout at the Devil album using only four notes. (grins)

Jana, your story is great!! I love your voice and I can't wait to read RUMBLE!

Diana did a great job putting this together. =D

Thanks, Kelly! It was fun writing the scene. I hadn't attempted YA before then and I was glad to turn it out so easily. I've quite forgotten how it felt to be that young ....... or that thin......
