at the risk of passing the buck...

since you're moderating this one, Andrew, i'll leave the rules of engagement up to you. i see the moderator like a card dealer, deal the game and the rest of us play it.

if the last half of a line makes it easier, i'm all for it. one important thing we should bear in mind is that Exquisite Corpse is a game - that's all. nobody expects it to be a masterpiece. the Corpses my writing groups compose are rather absurd. it's virtually anonymous, too. nobody but the moderator knows exactly who is participating or who wrote what, so there's little risk of embarrassment there. it is meant to be a fun exercise to do with friends for laughs.

ultimately, i am glad to see us all coming together on this. :)
we're composing, compromising, and all working together. a far cry from the way things were just a month or so ago. i am anxious to see how our Corpse turns out.

    I think it will be more fun to see who contributed which lines. If anyone wants to remain anonymous, that's fine and they can let Andrew know.
