I have been thinking allot about the collaborative writing project, Past Live's, we're all enjoying so much. I got to thinking that it would be fun to start another collaborative effort when this one's done. I started contemplating what storyline would be fun to tackle. I think I have come up with a good possibility.
Have you ever heard that your life passes before your eyes when you die. Think of a person that is 101 and ready to pass on to the next life. A person this old would have met many people through out their life. and had many moving and inspirational events happen to them. We could "review" their life through their eyes. Each author could write an episode of life. It could be a special emotional moment, a drastic or tragic event where lessons were learned, or a meeting of a person who became special in the characters life. Perhaps some of the articles could be written from the view of the characters he has met, as they remember him.
I'm thinking of a character who is an old man who has traveled far and not settled down until late in life. He could have been a soldier, hobo, laborer, sailor, scholar, the possibilities are endless. Think of how much a person who lives to the age of 101 and never really settled down to a steady lifestyle would have seen and experienced. From present time back 101 years, there are some very fun and interesting eras. I've been trying to come up with titles also, "101 Years: Retrospective", or "A Walk Through The Years".
If anyone would be interested, leave me a comment, or click of the Contact Me button and send me an email. Or if you have an improvement on the idea or a possible title, let me know.
