A man named Forrest goes to work one day, worried about his small problems in his insulated world. Then a mysterious message appears on his computer screen, telling him to get out of the building. He does, just as it explodes. He is quickly thrust into a maelstrom of chaos, warring factions and uncertain allegiances. Everything seems to be centered around a medallion that his father gave him before he died. They say it has hidden power and powerful, shadowy forces will stop at nothing to get it.
This is the premise of a collaborative story with 13 chapters that has been ongoing for a couple months, run by my friend Joe Owens. Next week, on Tuesday or Wednesday, my installment of the story will be posted, which will be the 12th and second last chapter.
If you are interested in reading the ones that come before, here is the link to them. It starts with the most current chapter, Chapter 11, but the links to the earlier ones are there too.

I think if I do this again as planned in the fall i will suggest each writer to do this to build anticipation. I am so curious about how you will set up the final chapter.

I spent all this afternoon combing through the previous chapters and trying to include all the plot twists. I think it will be pretty good. I hoping to set it up so that you can end it with a bang. 🙂

Sounds like an interesting premise. I especially like the part about him getting the mysterious on his computer before the explosion.

It is an interesting story. It’s quite a challenge to take other people’s ideas and try to work everything together into a cohesive story. Have you read the previous chapters on Joe Owens blog?
