'bucket brigade' Guidelines:

The participants of this experiment are required to re-write a text by paraphrasing and the use of synonyms.
The original text is secret and has a length of 110 words.
The length of your re-write should be between 85 and 135 words.
Prose can be turned into free verse or a poem with meter and rhyme and the other way around.
Little details can be added and parts that seem less relevant to content can be omitted, but overall you should
try to keep the core meaning of what you receive.

Practical instructions (how we hope this works):
Aspiring participants should proclaim their wish to participate in this thread.
They will then privately receive a text from the Queen's Verse-Keeper.
Following the sequence of their announcement, each participant will receive the re-written version from her/his predecessor.
(The first participant has the honor of receiving the original text.)

IMPORTANT: All of the re-writes should not appear in this or any other thread, but only be sent via PM back to the Verse-Keeper.

We ask the participants to patiently wait in order to let their predecessors create a re-write without pressure.
To keep the bucket chain from breaking off we ask everyone to finish their re-write within 24 hours (time starting
when they receive their text), otherwise the next person in line will get the version waiting to be re-written.
However, the Verse-Keeper is open for negotiations (via PM) and will extend the time-limit for buckets that are
already in sight and just need a little longer so their content will not be spilled.


Where the chain leads:

When every participant has had the chance to contribute her/his re-write, (or at some point in the future when
curiosity demands it) the resulting chain of versions and the original text will be revealed publicly in this thread.
