As of Monday evening, most people want to start an all new serial from scratch. If that’s not the option you’d choose, then be sure to cast your vote!
The poll will stay open until Friday, January 16th.
No need to re-comment on this update unless…
Whatever form the new serial takes, I’m going to bring back the culinary aspect of the story. However, the “random things” do more to drive the plot. So, this time I will ask you for a combination of Random Things and Food-related Things. You are also welcome to send Recipes to share as part of an episode.
So if you want to see the first episode of the new serial (whatever it may be) next weekend, then leave a comment with three things/ingredients.
This is your chance. You can put the next serial story on a completely new road. Or you can keep it as it is. Or it can be a little of both!
Last weekend I gave you the conclusion of the re-wind of Three Things. So now it’s time for a new, original, reader-propelled serial. Once again I’ll put you in the driver’s seat.
My main purpose in giving you a serial episode each week is to engage you, the reader. I do that by making the serial “interactive” — getting readers to send three random things or ingredients (food related things). As I write each episode I let those things inspire and guide what happens in the story.
Doing that in the first serial is what resulted in the 1920’s setting. It’s even what brought you the cast of characters.
Now that we are ready to begin a new story-line, I want to bring you into the process right away — before a single word is written. That’s what I’ve always done.
In the second and third stories, most people wanted to keep the same characters. But it is time that I asked for your feedback again. So I’m giving the WordPress handy-dandy poll thingamajig a try. (I’m crossing my fingers that I did it right!)
This poll should let you leave comments as well, or elaborate on the option you chose. I look forward to your feedback.
This poll will only be open through Friday, January 16, 2015.
If you have other thoughts that the poll doesn’t cover, then just leave a comment.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
