About the Round Robin: IMHO, I think we should steer clear of a pre-planned outline (i.e. collaboration.) I love collaborating, but it?s really, really hard to do with more than 2 or 3 authors. The beauty of a Round Robin is that each author gets to be creative and bring their own unique talent and ideas to the story by picking up where someone else left off. My suggestions would be to: 1) Determine a starting and stopping point for the story. For example: START ? Luke and Mara go on an undercover mission. END ? At the conclusion of which they are made honorary Emperor and Empress of a remote grep-farming colony. (Just an example ? not a real plot bunny, LOL.) The middle is left completely open for interpretation: action/adventure/romance/humor/angst/suspense?whatever the author of that segment conjures. 2) Chapters are not pre-assigned but authors volunteer on a first-come, first-serve basis to write the next part and have, say, one week to do so. This leaves the fic open to new and experienced authors alike, and can be a jumping-off point for someone who would like to try their hand at writing the pairing. 3) Agree on a few simple ground rules, such as: Luke/Mara cannot get killed or divorced. Anything else is wide open - keeping it plausible and open-ended as a courtesy to your fellow authors, of course. 4) The person ?in charge? would only need to make sure that chapters are getting posted in a timely manner and/or see to them getting re-claimed if DRL becomes a problem for anyone. Just my 2 credits. EDIT: I found it!! Here's that old MJS Fan Club Round Robin. It might give some ideas about what works and what doesn't: Complicated Journey Good questions! I?m very open-minded and will read pretty much anything. Shipper that I am, I generally look forward to anything with ?romance? somewhere in the tagline. I?ll almost always click on a fic where Luke and Mara are parents, because that timeframe has not been written as much. And I guess the only stories I ?won?t bother? to read are fics that are 99.999% evil-cliffie-ridden angst/torture/pain/misery/gloom/doom/despair and/or L/M don?t end up together...just cuz that's not my cuppa.
