A buddy of mine, Gene, challenged a bunch of us to a round-robin write-a-novel (novella, short story, whatever). He's writing the first segment to give us a starting point and then we'll round-robin scenes/chapters in order. This sounds like fun or total chaos. We'll find out which in the next few weeks.
Just a nice quiet town where people smiled at each other, waved, and lived harmoniously day in and day out. Or did they? Was there more to the story than what a passerby might see when they stopped here to rest? And what about those folks who lived in the hollow? Maybe, just maybe, the town wasn’t as quiet as it seemed to be.
If you'd like to follow the progress, here's the website Gene set up.
