It's time again for that crazy insanity where we actually write for each other! A brief description, the link to actually sign up will be in the first comment.
Serial Swappers is an ongoing project to help bring greater attention to serial fiction online, help us share our audiences, turn people on to new serials they might never have otherwise read, and challenge each other and ourselves as writers and artists. Each swap has a particular theme, for example, our recent April Fools swap was intended to be a joke post that made ridiculous new lines of non canon plot. Our current theme is Christmas In July! The idea is two fold. We will be giving each other presents, then dealing with our own gifts. The intention is for you to write a guest update (non canon) for the serial novel you are assigned too. And leave them a... gift. It may be a character from your own serial, or some object of power, or some concept, like super powers suddenly appearing in a serial that never had super powers before. Then, to match it, after receiving your OWN gift, write an update (again, non canon) dealing with the "present" you were given.
Unlike the April Fools, the guest post nature will likely be best made clear to your readers up front. This allows a bit more freedom in working with previous updates or interludes, rather than trying to work into the current narrative, a serious stopping block in our last Serial Swap Summer is traditionally a rather slow time for serial novels as many readers are away from school or busy with other things, so the hope is to boost interest and numbers while also having fun and challenging ourselves.
