With DEW's cooperation, I've decided due to Satoshi's absense and the general unpopularity of the old Short Story contest, we'll be changing it into something different.

 

I'll start the new contest with the previous theme from the Short Story contest soon, but format-wise, this will be handled similar to the WSAC with a two-week simultaneous entries/voting system, and community-decided themes instead "winner picks and nobody has no say in anything."

 

This is different from the SS contest in that you don't have to write an entire narrative with a beginning, middle, and end. In this contest, all you need to do is spout some words that tell some kind of story. You don't need to start it, you don't need to end it, you don't need a middle. Just write something pertaining to the theme. Doesn't matter how long. Sometimes it's better for creativity just to drop a paragraph or two!

 

Feel free to discuss. Between classes tomorrow I'll start writing out the entries thread and I'll post it that evening.

Expanded drabbles?

A drabble is supposed to be 100 words long, but some folks go for anything under 500 or so and it counts.

Basically. Minus the word count.

 

There ain't any word counts where we're going.

Works for me.

 

Are we still on about the fanfic thing though?  Sometimes, it's nice to just use a pre-existing world and not have to worry about the setting at all.

Depending on the popularity...?

 

Either we could do a special fanfic contest as part of Oben's contest rotation idea or I could forego the poll in the upcoming writing prompt contest and we can do a fanfic-themed round next.

I like Oben's idea. But it'd probably be easier to just go ahead and add it into the poll for this contest. It can always be added again later in Oben's idea if that goes through.

The first round is up!

 

Yeah, I made the deadline a bit shorter to match the WSAC deadline. Each one will be 2 weeks proper, I just wanted to make it easier on myself this time so when I rotate the threads I can do them all at once.

 

Anyways, get cracking people. I'm just gonna put down some names of people I will personally slather a sardine on if they don't enter.

sad to say ill have to skip this round my current set up doesn't have office so anything I would write would come out subpar at best in terms of proper grammar, capitalizations, spelling, ect

BUT!!!! in the next few weeks I'm probably going to be getting a much bigger an better setup overall for all things like making videos even.

might even invest I a halfway decent microphone while I at it, seeing as my picture quality is fine.

 this is a music video I made for a friend of mine.  give it a listen.  the visuals are pretty dope

when you love something..  and I mean. really love it.  you fight for it for as long as you can until you cant stand any longer.  then when its all said and done, walk away with a smile hoping you did right.

You could also just type it into the Editor you most definitely have in one way or the other.

Blah, blah, blah.

At least we'll get to use that first theme finally, lol!

Okay, gotta figure something out then. Nice!

Prison... Isolation...

You know, something I've been working on lately is like totally up this alley.

Pity I probably can't keep it remotely PG13 for that part. . . ah well, maybe another will come to me meanwhile.

 

The best motivator I could possibly get to like, legit enter something good, would be if a short standalone of one of my longer projects could be written relating to the prompt..

well, okay, "good", at least in the sense that it's quite good for me still. My prose is okay but I would hardly be spamming writing classes if it were superfantastic.

I dig this.  I've been in a creative mode.  I might write something.   :)

or, for short, dis/
