Um... No.

for 65 pages we had that rule - and now you want to change it? Ptth!Where does it stop? Lee just had "Awoke with a jerk" - if you wanted to just allow things like 'a' and 'the' fine but Awoke, with and jerk are all points where different posters could change the outcome of the story.

From page 60:

Couldn't we make a rule that prepositions and conjunctions don't count?

Most frequently used prepositions: out of about 85-150 in the English language. 360 if you include complex prepositions.

http://www.hhs.helena.k12.mt.us/Students/OconnorJean/Clark/tsld003.htm

Then you have cordinating conjunctions and to make the list larger subordinating conjunctions.

Adding a conjunction or a preposition is not hard and it can impact on the story's out-come.

It's not that they're hard to add. It's just that it sucks to be the one to have to post "the" or "on" or whatever when the guy before you would probably have done so himself ANYWAY.

I agree with that - but do we limit to the 'most used' ten prepositions and conjunctions. As I found there are more than just the or to or on or a... Then we, as I said get into words that carry a heavier weight in dictating the course of the story like: beneathe, beside, outside, until, during, except etc. It opens a Pandora's Box! [Big Grin]
