Comment Fic in the Pandemic!

Hello Open Veiners! (Is that a thing? Let's make it a thing.)

So, it looks like even though the US is trying to open up (WHY?!) ... most of us aren't going anywhere for a while. If you live outside of the US and your country isn't actively trying to kill you, we are all jealous and want to join you.

So, it's been a bit since we did a comment fic party, and again, since we all aren't really going anywhere for a while, it seems like a good time to try and stretch those exhausted brain cells.

Here's how it's going to work. There are three aspects to this party:

1. "OMG I DON'T WANT TO WRITE BUT I KIND OF WANT TO JUST CHAT WITHOUT PRESSURE". Check out the first three comment threads. They are getting to know you writer questions that can just be chatted about over the course of the next little while.

2. The Fic Prompt: From now until June 14th, the prompts are open. Prompt anyone, anything. Prompt yourself. Prompt your co-writers. Examples look like: Andy; conversations about music or Luke; the death of his coach. And remember that the most successful prompts are the open ones: Any/Any; what's love got to do with it.

3. The Fic! From now until really, let's be real, at least the end of July, go forth and respond to prompts. Respond, respond, respond. :) You can respond to as many as you like. And you can start responding as soon as the prompts are up.

Go forth! Write! Chat! Enjoy!

We can get through this all together.

Summer Fic Challenge: August Edition

Welcome back everyone to the Open Vein Writing Summer Fic Challenge: August edition! This officially indicates the close of the July edition. But, now we're at the end! July completely got away from me, but we've got time to make it up.

Prompting will be allowed for two weeks. Didn't get the chance to fill one in June or July, you can fill it out now!

I will try to get all the prompts from June/July that had a "Next Month" claim posted before 11pm on August 3rd.

From this moment until September 2nd (pushing it back through Labor Day because of how late I've been getting this up), 2019 this post is open and ready for comments! Here's how it works:

So for the next two weeks, we are going to go commenting crazy. Is there a scene you've always wanted to write for your own characters, is there a scene you want to see a writer do for other characters, is there a character you want to get to know better? This is your chance to prompt.

Quick answer to a common question - can you answer the prompts as soon as they are posted? YES!

We will be allowing prompts to be filled right away! See something that inspires you? Don't wait! Go and comment to it. We will just be closing prompts on the 19th.

Again, remember: Even though prompting closes August 19th, commenting is open from now until September 2nd. Anyone is able to comment on any prompt they wish. Even if it is not your fandom. Yes, even if it is not your fandom. Especially if it is not your fandom. It is a great way to see how people see your characters.

And then we're done and your friendly neighborhood mods will put up a post that links the fics. :)

If you are interested and this post has totally confused you, comment with questions! :)

Part of the fun of this is not just to play in the really active fandoms but to also bring some of the quieter characters out of the woodwork. It's your chance to get to know original characters, faded characters, and to let those forgotten characters out of the closet a bit. :)


So, the Summer Fic Challenge: August Edition has begun! August prompting starts now and goes through 11:30 pm on Monday, August 19. Writing goes from now through 11:30 pm on Monday, September 2nd. The end of the summer is upon us!

still kickin!

It's been a quiet week here, and I hope that everyone is having a fantastic week. Right now, I'm hanging out, watching the USWNT play a game I barely understand and trying to keep my blood pressure under control while I do it. ;)

As you're running around yourself, remember that we have month two of our comment fic party happening. Come on over and add some more prompts and jump on some writing!

And hey, it's 2-0 now!!!!!!!

The Summer Fic Challenge: July

Welcome back everyone to the Open Vein Writing Summer Fic Challenge: July edition! This officially indicates the close of the June edition. But, now we're going to keep it going! All summer, through the end of August, each month will host it's own separate comment party!

Prompting will be allowed for two weeks. Didn't get the chance to fill one in June? You can carry it over into July, or even August! If you reply to the prompt with "Next month" I will automatically move them to the intro post, so you can go right to filling them (of course, you can do this yourself if you forget to comment, but I want to make this as easy for everyone as possible). Participate in as many months or as few as you'd like- you don't have to commit to three months of fic.

I will try to get all the prompts from June that had a "Next Month" claim posted before 11pm on July 1.

From this moment until July 31, 2019 this post is open and ready for comments! Here's how it works:

Last few days for The Summer Fic Challenge: June!

Hey everyone! We've had some great prompting and some great prompt fills, but you've still got time! Go write!

As a reminder: The way the Summer Fic Challenge is going to work is that at the beginning of each month prompting will open for two weeks. The post will remain open for prompt then a fresh round of prompting will begin the next month. So, if you thought of a prompt you wanted to share after prompting closed, you'll get a chance to post fresh ideas.

That being said- if there are prompts you want re-posted that you didn't get a chance to fill this month, either comment with "Next month" or, of course, feel free to re-post the prompt once the July edition opens.

Happy writing!

The Summer Fic Challenge: June

The response was overwhelming, so welcome one and all to the Open Vein Writing Summer Fic Challenge! We had a fairly even distribution of opinions on how long everyone wanted the Comment Party to last, so we've figured out a solution for everyone. All summer, through the end of August, each month, will host it's own separate comment party!

Prompting will be allowed for two weeks. Didn't get the chance to fill one in June? You can carry it over into July, or even August! If you reply to the prompt with "Next month" I will automatically move them to the intro post, so you can go right to filling them (of course, you can do this yourself if you forget to comment, but I want to make this as easy for everyone as possible).
