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)
. Participate in as many months or as few as you'd like- you don't have to commit to three months of fic.
From this moment until June 30, 2019 this post is open and ready for comments! Here's how it works: ( Collapse )
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 16th
. But don't worry if you didn't get a chance to post a prompt. Remember: the challenge is going on all summer, and prompting will re-open again on July 1!
Remember:( Collapse )
Again, remember: Even though prompting closes June 16th, commenting is open from now until June 30th. 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: June Edition has begun! June prompting starts now and goes through 11:30 pm on Sunday, June 16. Writing goes from now through 11:30 pm on Sunday, June 30th. And if you enjoy the June Edition, the July Edition will shortly follow.
