Sorry, looks like my previous post if off the topic.  :-[

Has it started yet?

How about making the inn the place of the meeting of the Myth characters? Like Promotheus etc. Then we all can choose one or two characters we're interested in, and write about them, with the end having them meet and trade stories in the inn. So the inn is like the wisdom they've achieved. (not so sure about how to write the idea, it sounds confusing  :-X)

But if we write from a usual angle it will be super-boring, so I guess this idea is so useful.  :)

hey what if we put everyone's cool ideas together, and make them charactors in their different times in the chapters, like each chapter could be about a charactor in their own setting.
Like the idea for the psychic teenager, she could either begin it or end it, like in each vision she has, each charactor comes forth, but also it tells some about her, in either some paralel universe or present time.
my idea would be what about a girl who could travel different realms when she spaces out or falls asleep.

anyway you don't have to like my ideas,
I just thought i'd put my two cents in.

I read one like that, it was edited by Karen slaughter. It was about a charm bracelet, the different short stories , by different authors were all about the same bracelet. I thought it was good.

same people and places

OK if you write concurrently but not consecutively, you'll still have to have some pretty set characteristics and guidlines, if not restrictions.  For example, hero 1 can't get married in section one and again in section two, or hate bolgurian space prawns in section three, but enjoy eating them in section four etc etc.

Why not ask the write a book in a year folks (see welcome board) I think they did something similar?

Anyway, as the daughter of a once (long ago) published sci fi writer, I'm in if there's room!
