What is a chainstory?
A chainstory is a story written by two or more writers. We do it right here on the blockchain. The rules regarding the chainstory concept are fluid as different people have different preferences, abilities, and availability.
Suggested Rules in a Chainstory
I would say that to remain relevant on the Hive blockchain a linked story like this should have an episode posted every week at a minimum. At the most, each participant can post a post each week. That is if there are 2 people writing.
I have not ever attempted at doing a chain with more than 2 people, I imagine that to be like herding cats. One partner at a time is good enough.
As for length, I think that 300-2000 words is a good guideline with a good average of 1200 words per episode. This may be tweaked from project to project.
In all of these things, you and your partner just need to agree to the terms along with the type of content and style that is used.
The Library of Chainstories
Well, right now it is more like a little bookshelf, but it will grow!
I am going to be listing the live stories first that are currently running and expanding as these are the ones that need the support!
After that will be the Archives.
Book of Space Lore SLZT
This is the story between myself and @therneau. It is live and it is kicking out 2 posts a week!
As the name would suggest, it is a sci-fi story. It follows the adventure(so far) of an explorer and a rogue AI that manifests in a simple assistant robot.

The Autumn Keep
This project was really interesting, done by myself and @fromage. Unfortunately, this project is shelved. If there is a writer who would like to take @fromage's place, please let me know.
A fantasy story with two protagonists.

A chainstory that I did with @kd-neeley. As the name might suggest, the premise was that characters came from the Tarot Card deck. This was quite a challenge for me as I knew nothing of the tarots!
Unfortunately this story is also on the bench and not likely to continue unless someone else would like to do so.
