Hmm, I'm wondering how many people in the forum are actually interested in writing...
Fandom lurkers and members of writing communities are probably familiar with the fanfic100
challenge. For those who are not, here's the basic idea:
- Writers are given a table filled with "prompts" or a random assortment of words (see sample below)
- Volunteers whip up a story (or fanfic) inspired by those words, any length/genre, 1 piece per prompt
- Writers share and enjoy reading each other's work, building mutual respect and enjoying the fics.
If people are interested, I hope we could do this activity sharing one prompt table. Interested people can pick numbers/prompts from the table below, and pledge to write something (short story, fanfic, poetry, essay, novel, etc) using that prompt. Each time people post their pieces, I'll link the submission into the table until all the prompts are used. Tada, MMOG Fiction Quilt!
- Original pieces or fanfiction (game/TV/movies/etc) will do. Game fanfics are encouraged, though, since we're a gaming community.
- Any genre (just keep it PG-13)
- Any length or format (just use common sense; 1 sentence is NOT a valid submission)
- Each person can choose a max of 5 prompts; first come first served
- 1 prompt = 1 piece, although you can get 5 prompts and use them to write a 5-chapter story
- Collaborations and co-writing are encouraged.~
- No grammar Nazis, but do bother to use Word's spellcheck.
So... How many of you actually write, or would be willing to join this?
