The other info.

You may post submissions for this challenge anytime on or after February 24th.

I knew there was something I was forgetting!

2/10/07 07:18 pm - cindylouwho2006 - A Februaryish Prompt

Because I have had one response, I will post a prompt for February! Even if it's just Alyssa and me going at it, we'll have fun, right?

In honor of Valentine's Day, here is the prompt:

Write about a piece of jewelry.

Hello fellow writers!

I know, I know, you thought this community was totally dead. So did I. But actually that question is up to you.

I've been in a busy season of my life - first semester of college, etc., etc. I'm sure you understand. But I'm back, at least for two more months, in a slow spot. So here's my question: does anyone else have time on their hands? Does anyone else want to go at short stories again with me? Should I post a few prompts and see what happens?

Comment and let me know where you stand!

I really love this community - some really wonderful things, including my own personal favorite of my short stories, have come out of it. But obviously we've all been flagging lately. ;) I know that my writing time has been limited; plus, I've been exploring other forms of writing, and haven't done much short-storying of late. As I'm sure you've all noticed, my prompt-posting has been sadly lacking.

However, I am willing to get my act together and get back to posting regular prompts and reminders - if you want me to. (It isn't only me who has been less than active here lately). If you are interested in continuing with this community for the present moment, please do comment and let me know. If you just don't feel like you have the time, now or in the next few months - or the energy, or the desire, to write for and participate in this community, please comment and let me know. If there are even one or two people who are sitting out there tapping their fingers on the desk and wondering why I'm being such a lousy mod, because gee they'd like to write something, then I will be more than happy to continue posting prompts. But if I've pegged it right and everyone is busy, stressed, or doing other things, then we can go on hiatus.

The decision is absolutely up to you. Whatever we do, I'd still like to do a story exchange sometime in the future (the last one was so fantastic) - maybe in a few weeks when everyone is out of school? (If you're interested, you know the drill - comment away!)

Thanks everyone in advance for responding. I know all of you will. =) (Right???)

I hope everyone enjoyed our unofficial hiatus there. =)

Coming in a fantastic day late (if you don't count the last few weeks I haven't posted anything!), I have a new prompt:

Write about a song.

It can be any kind of song you want, and it can have as great or as little an effect on your story as you like. But, a song must play a role in your story. Beethoven or Beatles or Black Eyed Peas - whatever influences your characters the most!

UnDeadline for this will be the 21st. As always, if you need more time - ask.

Also as always - please comment if you plan to participate!

3/15/06 05:30 pm - cindylouwho2006 - Whew

OK, I am officially a bad mod, sorry.

I was wondering though - I know people mentioned their spring breaks were nowish - is it too late to organize a story exchange? Or rather, if we did, who would be interested in participating? (Plenty of time to work, don't worry!)

I thought that some people here might be interested in a fairytale contest over at Wild Child Publishing. It sounds pretty good. Details and link behind the cut.

you know you want to click . . .Collapse )

There are some pretty good articles about writing fantasy / sci-fi that I just found on Deep Magic. Particularly useful are the articles by Melissa Thomas.

Someday I'll get around to posting a full list of good articles you should read, cross my heart.

1/22/06 10:36 am - cindylouwho2006 - January-February prompt

This challenge's prompt is a simple prompt:

Write about a lady's fan.

You can submit anytime after February 11th; all submissions are due by midnight on February 18th.

Happy writing!

I managed to squeeze something out. It's not the best, and it's not very long, but such as it is, it's here...
