The MMOG Writing Challenge
 

What the hell is this anyway?
The culprit was this thread: (link). Mitchi and I had this shared idea of doing a writing activity similar to the fanfic100 challenge, only on a more manageable scale. tl;dr, here's the gist of it:
  • We will provide a table filled with "prompts" or a random assortment of words.
  • Claim a prompt that inspires you, and start writing!
  • Post your piece, read each other's work, and enjoy the sheer pleasure of reading and writing.


Err... Come again?
Anyone 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, like sewing together a patchwork quilt.
  • Original pieces or fanfiction (game/TV/movies/etc) will do. Game fanfics are encouraged, though, since we're a gaming community.
  • Any genre (action/adventure/horror/romance/humor/etc)
  • Any length or format (just use common sense; 1 sentence is NOT a valid submission)
  • Each person can claim a max of 5 prompts; first come, first served. To claim a prompt, reply here with your choice. (If you decide to back out, please leave a note here so that someone else can adopt your abandoned claim.)
  • 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.
  • We're not grammar Nazis since we're doing this for fun, but do bother to use Word's spellcheck feature.
  • ENJOY IT. We're not competing or anything. ^o^

The Prompt Table
NOTE: You can't take claimed prompts. Prompts that no one likes will be replaced every 3 days or so for variety. (If you're still seeing the old table after an update, press F5 to refresh your cache.)

I know there are people who love to write out there, somewhere... COME ON OUT AND SHINE! 8D

Catharsis 10-19-2008 07:10 AM

Claims --
  • Mitchi has claimed #12 - Vision in the previous thread for an Original fiction.
  • I call dibs on 13-16, the whole deck of cards, for a Trickster Online fanfic.

First come first served; just be sure to dish it out. Everything else is free for all.

moffit 10-19-2008 09:23 AM

Do we post them here, or in a new thread?

Catharsis 10-19-2008 09:34 AM

I think it would be better to post the piece itself on a new thread or your blog just so people can reply with feedback. But, claims should be made here, as well as submitting links to the finished piece just so everyone will know where to find it. ^_^

Yes, you can write about it in the literal sense, metaphorical sense, or however you understand the word. For example, I can use the prompt "blue" to write about a lover's blue eyes, Blue the Mod (LOL), sadness, a poem about the sky, etc... It really depends on how it inspires you. We're not gonna be strict with that. Just write whatever feels right. ^_^

Yeah, but Fast =/= good.

Writing used to be all I did for nearly a year.
