Thread Name: TAVERN STEAMBOAT Albert Hansell - Part 4
Subject: RE: TAVERN STEAMBOAT Albert Hansell - Part 4
Actually Amos, it didn't. We're all getting older and the memories are going, but about 3 weeks ago, this damn thing started out as just another Tavern thread with what would hopefully be a splash more creativity than getting "Fugged." My simple thoughts were to maybe throw in a few little subplots and go through the Delta country with a few bluesy things and then have crazy ol' Bert blow-up or somehow sink his namesake by accident and we'd all do the next Tavern in New Orleans........Goes to show what a simpleminded asshole I am! At something over 300 posts and about 3 weeks we not only missed the blues, but we never made New Orleans!!!

We not only had subplots to the subplots, but we had subplots to the sublots to the subplots to the subplots to the subplots to the subplots to the subplots to the subplots!!!! Time warps, mysteries, character transmogrifications, dream sequences, paradigms of current 'Cat problems, reincarnations............not to mention the FLAMING KESTREL.

To all of those who believe that there is nothing creative in the Tavern threads, may I suggest you read this from beginning to end. As an exercise in group writing with no intercommunication and unbelievable creativity and imagination, this thread(s) stands alone. Others are great, but this one is quite unique.
