Writing is something that I have wanted to do for some time, and I know that I don't currently have the skill set to do more than putter. Are there any shared world story sites that exist? A collaborative site for me to get my feet wet handling a supporting character or two, rather than trying to wrangle the whole plot.

So should we consolidate? This one was first, but didn't get as many answers because of poor word choice in the title (I am guessing). – Larry Smithmier Nov 21 '10 at 4:04
I think a link is fine. People browsing this could be directed to the other question through the link. – JFW Nov 24 '10 at 13:20

I know of a few shared world out there, some are more open then others it really depends on what sort of genre you're looking to write in.

Up here in Pacific Northwest is a setting called "New Cascadia" which is one of those community sent back in time thing... though in this case it most of western Washington and Oregon. I know there is quiet a bit of writing in that setting, and it's large enough to have room to do something without any trouble, but for the life of me I can't find any website for them.

I'll have to ask around with some of the people who I know have worked on it, though that won't be until the next convention.
