You may remember a few weeks back I posted about The Hunt for Tomorrow, a virtual scavenger hunt with amazing prizes, including the chance to name/theme a progressive story written collectively by 20 authors sponsoring The Hunt.
Well, ladies and gents, that story is here! The novella-length story is called “The Catastrophe Theory” and it stars scientist Eve, prepper Jared, and their very unique daughter Cassie in a post-apocalyptic techno-disaster. The story has been evolving spontaneously as each author takes their turn writing the next chapter each day and adding his/her own twists to the plot, and it’s been quite a suspenseful ride!
(As a side note, this has been an incredibly interesting experience as a writer, since this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, little-to-no-planning, zero-control-over-the-storyline style is pretty much the EXACT OPPOSITE of how I normally write. It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I have to say, I’m surprisingly pleased with the results thus far… I guess that’s what happens when you put 20 talented authors in one place and set them loose!)
A new chapter has been published every day for the past couple weeks, and yesterday, it was my turn! So without further ado, check out Chapter 13 of The Catastrophe Theory – and if you haven’t read the first 12 chapters, start here!!
