Jigsaw Stories aka Buffet Writing

Hi Class! You are writing parts of several stories for the remainder of the week. First, your job is to write the beginning of a story. Once you have written at least three sentences, post your story for other students to continue writing. As other stories develop, contribute at least three sentences to several other stories. Leave no story unwritten! Click this link for some story starter ideas.

An interesting beginning will generate interest from your peers. Similarly, the development of the story must allow for others to contribute easily. Be aware that people may not add to your story. Likewise, it is possible for stories to branch off in several directions. You may contribute to a story only once.
