Wo, quite a few months flew by since I last posted about this. Sorry! The school I was at when I was first interested in your project did not turn out to leave any space in their curricurum for extra story-writing projects, though I'm sure the kids would have liked it.
Luckily, though, I've found two Middle School boys to try it with! They're on their second draft of the Mt Diamonte quest. They should be finished by Friday, if all goes as planned. Very possibly typing the stories up themselves, too.
Should I throw some clipart onto the stories before I e-mail them to you, or is text only OK?
