The Open Book Project is creating stories

I'm writing a story. And you can help me with it if you want.

The Open Book Project

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to get a say in the stories you read? I certainly do. What would have happened if Gandalf had accepted the ring? If Kahlan had not met Richard in Westland, but only much, much later?

Thinking about the endless possibilities of stories is how The Open Book Project came into existence. In essence, The Open Book Project is about creating a story in collaboration with the people that read it. You can be part of creating fictional worlds and stories that will otherwise never exist. You also give me the chance to do something I love: write.

The story starts with me creating a basic structure, and I incorporate the ideas of IDEAlists in that structure. The PLANners get a say in what specific events will unfold through filling in planning cards. CASTers get a vote in what characters will appear in the story, and VOTErs can vote on the gerenal storyline. While I have a final say in the story and all rights belong to me, all patreons can contribute to it. And everybody can read it.

I'm planning to release one chapter on the 1st of every month. Then, you have the time to vote and brainstorm about how the story should continue. Based on your ideas, votes and feedback, I will write the next chapter. And so on, and so on.

Let's create some stories that can only exist because of all of us!

So who am I?

I'm Nina, an avid story lover with a degree in anthropology. While I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life, there was one thought that kept popping up in my mind: I would like to combine my different passions and create something new. So creating a story with the help of others seemed like a great idea. It gives me the opportunity to write, and it gives me the opportunity to talk with different people from different places. Needless to say, I can't wait to see where a story based on the ideas of a group of people leads to.
