Hey people. Since this is the first time I'm involved with storybooks (and YWS for that matter), I have little clue as to how we are going to do this thing. But I do look around and read few of the storybooks here and some are really good. Sadly there are a lot of them that broken down, unfinished. I have few suggestions;

- can we write only in 3rd person view? We don't know who the killer is and first person in my opinion gives away too much.

- since this story will be a complex one and will involves technicalities at certain point (I think), I suggest that we work together before posting in order to avoid confusions. Try not to make the events too random.

- can you, asxz, lead us along the story (act as somewhat a mediator) so that we won't get ourselves lost. For example instead of having us write random scenes you could point out what scene that's relevant to the story.

That's all I guess. I really love the idea of this storybook and can't wait to participate. So, what do you guys think?
One day, Zombie was walking down the street. He saw two of his zombie friends brutalizing an elderly old woman. Even for him it was difficult to watch. Against his better judgment he decided to help. Together the three of them killed her pretty quickly.

Zombie for the first thing i have to disagree, well since i always write in the first person now, it is a lot easier, but for the rest, i almost laughed, all the story books try to do those but they always are forgotten, unless the idea is very good.

Alright boltageman, point taken. It's just that I feel really strange when the viewpoints are mixed for the same story...

Whoa, it's dead before it even started? Talk about premature death. Why is that by the way?
