There’s a story on medium I took part in that’s a collaboration between several writers. When one writer finishes a chapter the next in line takes over the story. My contribution was for Chapter 7. You can find links to the other chapters a the bottom of the chapter.
The story follows around a detective who’s helping an author overcome writer’s block, but first he has to find her!
Check out Chapter 7 and the rest of the story by clicking this long sentence.
