New Starship Gypsies post: 22. The lure.

It’s been a while since I added to the collaborative sci-fi space opera that is Starship Gypsies, but I’ve finally got around to writing a new chapter and here it is…

Starship Gypsies

“Hey, Zeet, I’m picking up some sort of distress signal.” Lazzaro’s voice broke Toes’ reverie and he turned from surveying the starry blackness outside and ground out the Jamaican Gold he’d been smoking in an ashtray, “It seems to originate somewhere around Mars, but I’m having trouble getting a more accurate fix on it than that.”
Captain Zachary “ZT” Toes sighed and punched the talk button on the comm panel, “Ok, Eric, I’m on my way up now.”

“Roger that, cap’n. Lazzaro out.”

Toes reluctantly kicked off his comfortable sandals and crammed his feet into the new boots he’d ordered during their brief stopover in Earth orbit. He had hoped they would have started wearing in by now, because they pinched like a bitch when he walked and he already had a blister coming on one heel. But Lazzaro had been hassling him for a while now, about his somewhat…

Starship Gypsies is go…

Before you start, no, that shouldn’t be “Starship Gypsies are go”, because Starship Gypsies is the name of the new blog from Jerry at Jdawgswords and myself, a completely new collaborative adventure in multi-contributor, multi-media fiction writing.

We have only been “live” for less than twenty four hours and have already been approached by a blogger who’s eager to participate in our experiment, so who knows where it might lead.

Jerry and I have so far written an episode each, of a tale that was originally his idea (although he hadn’t even considered collaborating on it, that was just an off the cuff suggestion from me that, like so many of these things, took on a life of its own and gathered momentum rather quickly) and that’s as far as we’ve got.

For now, I’ve crafted a rather lovely new WordPress site, (even though I do say so myself, which I do) with links and widgets and dropdown menu thingies, all glorious gloriously enhanced by some beautiful photos which (for now, at least) I’ve pinched from NASA.

The concept, if nothing else, is simple.
We extend an open invitation to all and sundry; anyone willing to contribute writing, illustrations, video, music, graphics, animation, anything at all that will add to the overall look, feel and content of “the project” will be welcome aboard.
The idea is to have a continuously evolving storyline that could go absolutely anywhere, in any number of formats.
And, as an added incentive to those of you out there who have always wanted to have a go at writing a blog, but haven’t been quite sure where to start, (exactly like me, three years ago in fact) well, we’ve already done all the hard work of setting up the site and getting the story off the ground, why not jump on our merry bandwagon and hit the ground running (excuse the mixed metaphor) by joining us on the IGV Alice Marie as we boldly go where no blogger has gone before.

Without a map.

So here it is, I hope you enjoy our new crowd-blogging collective as much as I’m looking forward to being involved in it.
Browse the new site using the widget menu on the About page, which you can find at the link below.

See you there…
