I am speculating to invite other writers to take a stab at chapters in a web series I've been working on - it would be pieces of about 5-6000 words and would have to fit into current framework, right now 5 finished chapters exist and I will be looking at finishing the sixth, I currently have someone working on converting it into a comic book form too. How would any of you feel about taking a stab at something like this and how to do it in the best way, I am thinking creative commons licensing as I would like if it fits into the universe to incorporate into "Canon" etc. I would be interested in hearing your opinion on this ? Would a competition perhaps be better ? How would you go about such an idea... Oh and if you tell me I might just use the ideas you have so this is to be considered an open free for all discussion in the public domain... :)
I can post a link to the scifi if asked but don't want to just do it as some might consider that spamming the group - I am mainly interested in discussion about the idea right now.
Sorry about the doubl,e post - my system told me posting did not work first time around...
Genre is SCIFI - Action / Suspense / thriller, story arch touching upon popular conspiracies, high technology and betrayal of mankind by the powers that be, including political, corporate, military etc.
You are right about continuity it is intended as an ongoing series.
It is divided into short chapters that each should be able to stand on their own, while allowing for character development of existing characters and introduction of new characters and story arcs.
As for licensing likely has to be someting like CC as it is something being developed online.
I do not see an issue with an author retaining rights to her/his ideas and writing and would envision a reciprocal agreement between writer and me if collaborative work, so do not see CC as such blocking said writer from using their own ideas etc. depending on exact type of publishing license chosen and agreement with said writer.
This is just tossing up ideas for how to go about such matters, might end up going the writing contest road
