Basically, I want someone to start off a debate with me in which we continue the same story. Whoever writes the best, overall, should get all seven points. I want to make sure someone with real writing experience will accept, and that I would prefer stories with real drama or conflict rather than Bob's Day at the Office, if you know what I mean. Other than that, you can surprise me. PM me if you're interested (10,000 chars and sex and swearing are allowed).

Oh, and you should provide a previous example of your writing if you want to apply.

Hmm, I am, though I haven't written in quite a while (well, at least fiction--to be more exact in my wording).

OK, I've accepted KRF's offer, although I would like to do this with MIG sometime.

Define "real drama or conflict" . Action based stories are fun (http://www.debate.org...) , but there's something to be said for writing 'literary' stories - that's what I, like most people, are writing for an English Extension 2 course major work at my school.

For instance, what would of the famous Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett?
