The Traveling Story – Season 1 – FULL Story!

Traveling Story - Season 1 - Blog Banner


PHEW! The first season of THE TRAVELING STORY (my fun, new author project) is NOW complete! I thought I’d post all the episode links here so you can read the entire story (in case you missed it this week!)

But first, here’s a bit about the project:

What is the Traveling Story?

5 Authors. 5 Days. 1 Story.

Each season of The Traveling Story will feature 5 well-known authors collaborating on one original, kick-ass story, with each author writing one of five episodes.

The full story will be revealed over the course of a week, with each episode appearing on the blog of the author who wrote it.

How Does it Work?

There are only three rules for The Traveling Story:

1) No brainstorming, outlining, or discussion of plot ahead of time. The first author writes the first episode of ANY kind of story they want and the next author picks up where that episode leaves off, taking it WHEREVER they want to go! The last author ends the story however they see fit!

2) An author cannot make changes to any previous episode. Each author has total creative control over their OWN episode only, but it has to continue where the last episode leaves off.

3) HAVE FUN! As you’ll see from the awesome story that came out of this, we don’t take ourselves too seriously! The Traveling Story is meant to be fun for the writers but especially for the readers!

Season 1 Authors:

Jessica Brody
Jessica Khoury

This first season turned out to be one wild and quirky ride! We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it!

  • Thanks, Mary! We had a blast writing it!

  • This is so fun! I’ve read up to episode 3 because apparently I’m late to this, I just found out about it because of season 3 and wanted to read 1 and 2. But unfortunately I can’t visit Gretchen McNeil’s blog; available to authors only, or so it says blogger. Does this mean I can’t read that episode anymore?
