EXQUISITE CORPSE NOVELLALALA

#1 Post by Monica Vitti »

I would like to begin an exquisite corpse novella which anyone can contribute to if they want. The story need not make sense or be linear in plot. :glad: :dead:
///
Begin!:

The investigation into the origins of the jar of pickled fingers found resting atop the piano in the coffee-break room of the meeting location of the 148th Internationale had not made any sort of waves in the press. Nonetheless, it had had the effect of creating an immense headache for Eloise Toft, who had been the first one to find the jar, and, who, after gazing in motionless absorption at the yellowing briny vat of digital decomposition for some time, sat quietly at the piano, began softly to play the dense chordal improvisations of McCoy Tyner's 'Afro Blue' solo.

(NOT PART OF THE STORY, CLARIFICATION POST)
This is a great idea!!! I'm so into this. Question though, the exquisite corpse part of it--- are you imagining that people are only allowed to look at the last POST or the last chunk of each post? If you would like to cover parts of it up, there's a spoilers function that can cover things up until you click on them (i don't know how well this works on mobile though?)

If you use the tag

Code: Select all

[spoil](hidden text here)[/spoil]
or highlight the text and click the spoilers icon in the text editor (looks like a little eyeball crossed out) it should hide your text behind a spoiler warning, like this:
► Show Spoiler
perhaps everyone's contributions could be hidden behind a spoiler tag and only looked at by the next writer (until the whole thing is done and compiled i suppose)

NOT PART OF STORY, RESPONSE TO PK

Ahh good question. I couldn't remember whether hiding previous sections was a part of exquisite corpse. Personally, I sort of like the idea of all of the contributions being visible at any time and the story going on indefinitely. Just my thoughts
