Interested in collaborative writing?

Hi Sci-fi and fantasy enthusiasts!

I am looking for volunteers to participate in testing the beta version of Wribly; an online collaborative writing project we are currently developing. Beta testing will start in November this year.

Wribly is an online application that allows students to collaborate with their classmates in the creation of a story. Sci-fi and fantasy are probably the most popular categories among students, so I felt many of you would be interested in this. I would love to squeeze Boston's brainpower for this project!!!
More details can be found on our blog: http://blog.wribly.com

Before we launch the site, we would like to test the methods employed in a community of amateur writers. 

What would your participation entail?

1) Participate in the creation of a short story using the methods of our application. The story will be 10 pages long, and would take around 3-4 months to complete. The approximate time required to participate will be around 1/2 to 1 hour per week. If at any point you decide that this is not your cup of tea, you are always free to quit.
2) Give us your feedback on whatever comes to your mind: from advice on the creation process, to the specifics of the implementation. In other words, any opinion you have to make this a better product would be very welcome.

Our goal is to recruit ~50 volunteers to test the system. If you are interested:

Thanks in advance!
