How is an inn gonna be incorporated with your story? (by the way...I'm not shooting any ideas down, just being the group skeptic...no harm, no foul...)

The inn idea works better, for some reason. Maybe Inn sounds better in a fantasy book than Hotel? who knows

Maybe, with your idea wca, the protagonist finds himself in this inn at an early age and it starts him going on into the entire storyline till he's killed in the end, when we actually start the telling of the story.
*pop* That was my head. It just got blown.

Hi all,
I personally like the Inn/hotel setting (thanks OzMac!) - I'd suggest creating a fantasy world and it's rules of behaviour, then having individual occupants of the inn telling their own stories culminating in the four of them meeting in the inn and moving on from there - either as a team or as enemies and opponents. just an idea.

For a cracking example of how this kind of setting can incorporate and link numerous different stories, check out the cult Tim Roth film 'Four Rooms'. It's pretty dark and might not to be to everyones taste though...

I like the idea of stealing someone else's chastity to redeem your own as a starting point, it's also the kind of thing that could work well told from varying points of view.

Nice idea Traveller... but... umm... not what I had in mind.  :-\ Sorry!

True... we did agree to use the hotel/inn, but not in the way you proposed...

I was thinking maybe, the hotel/inn (better make it an inn. Sorry OzMac... hehe!) could serve as a place of initiation for one (or more) of the 'phases' I mentioned... not as a focal location.

Anyway, it's not just about me  :D hehe! We'll see what other people have to say about it...

The 'stealing another's chastity to redeem your own' proposition moved me also  :) Sorry to sound conceited since it's my idea!  :D But honestly, it sounds really good!!

You people owe me big time!!! LOL!!!  ;D

Sorry WCA but what format has everyone agreed we use the inn in? I can't find it.
My proposal was intended as a way for each writer to be able to work on their own ideas within the group guidelines - whilst being linked by a few common themes and areas not just a single major character which could be limiting

That would be cool. That gives us more freedom to spin a yarn.
We all have our own style.

Hey Traveller.  I was just thinking 'Four Rooms' as I started reading that post.  Weird  :D

I think writing as a team is going to pose a whole new set of challenges, deciding on things for one  ;D
Can't wait!

chas·ti·ty  (chst-t), from castus, pure.
n.
The condition or quality of being pure or chaste.

a. Virginity.
b. Virtuous character.
c. Celibacy.


What context are we going to be writing about chastity in, WCA? Love the idea of an anti-hero deliberately trying to have someone sabotage their own virtuous character... (Thinking 'Cruel Intentions' OzMac ;) ?)
Another character could be a vengeful relative/friend/lover of the injured party?
