Help 15 Authors Finish a Short Story on Goodreads

Ever wish you could help your favorite novelist finish writing a story?

Over at Goodreads, a team of authors played a game of exquisite corpse and wrote part of a short story together. Participating authors included Charles Yu, Robin Sloan, Anne Lamott and Ally Condie. Now you can help them finish the story:

What’s the best way to celebrate May’s National Short Story Month? With a brand-new short story, of course! We’ve enlisted 15 brave and brilliant authors, starting with Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Egan, for a bout of Exquisite Corpse—the classic parlor game popularized by the Surrealists, wherein each participant continues a story based only on the previous person’s lines. All of the writers are seeing the full story for the first time with this post, but our Internet experiment isn’t over. Last up was the legendary Margaret Atwood, and now it’s your turn. Keep the game going in the comments section!
