I see where your coming from with this too. And I know you weren't saying it was a bad thing, I just used it as an expression more than a literal term. But if people just played along for interest, in reading people different styles, what ideas different minds come up with, etc, its better. Not so much because they want a great story worth publishing, but because its different, and interesting to see minds, ideas, and styles clashing.
And its not all that hard to partake. Most don't need to spend 20 minutes perfecting their portion, they can always drop in with a quick 'He walked down the narrow halfway, dimly lit by fluorescent lights' or something like that, made longer of coarse. Just make it sound, slightly creative, and your set. But yeah, I get your point. Just wouldn't mind seeing at least one really, take off.
On another note, I wish people in this forum would start adapting the whole 'Art Forum' style for putting their writing on. I mean, its neater, smarter, more efficient, and easily managed. Most people should know what I mean, and I know this forum is new and has room to grow. But it would be good to see, I think.
It makes commenting on writing so much easier for me. And makes certain writers more recognizable. Is this a good thing to adapt, in your opinion?
