2014 Summer Mini Challenge

Today is the first official day of summer (at least, for those of us in the northern hemisphere), so that means its time once again for my


Do you want to play? See the details below! =)

THE RULES
The rules are, for the most part, simple. This is simply meant to be a fun, muse-boosting challenge to help fill the long summer days ahead.

[+] This challenge is open to all fandoms, and/or original fiction. It doesn't have to be something I'm familiar with in order for you to participate.

[+] Simply choose one of the five prompt tables below, paste it to your journal, and comment on this post with a link to your choice.

[+] You do not have to specify what you're going to write about, simply choose a table. All fandoms, characters, pairings, and original work are welcome. You can choose to write for one fandom, five different fandoms, or mix fanfic and original work - whatever you'd like!

Use this format when you're commenting to claim a table (it'll just keep things neater on my end):




[+] You must write at least 100 words for each prompt. There is no upper limit.

[+] All material posted for this challenge must be new. You can write five separate stories, combine your prompts to write a chaptered fic or serial, or use the prompts as extra boosts for stubborn WIPs.

[+] Please post each fic separately at the venue of your choice (LJ, DW, FF.net, MM.org, AO3, dA, etc - as long as its not registration required) and link each piece in your prompt table. This is already built into the code for your table; simply copy and paste your link on the inside of this html tag: <*a href=" [insert your link here] ">PROMPT<*/a>.

[+] All genres (action/adventure, romance, comedy, darkfic, etc) are welcome.

[+] All ratings (G to NC-17 or K+ to X) are welcome.

[+] Gen, het, slash, femmeslash are welcome.

[+] One of the prompts in your chosen table have you stumped? No problem - simply substitute one of the other prompts from one of the other tables and write for it instead.

[+] Once you've completed your table, comment on the Completed Claims post, with a link to your completed table. The Completed Claims list will be static at the top of my DW for the duration of the challenge.

[+] Everyone who completes one of the tables will receive a personalized banner for their effort. As a bonus (depending on the volume of response) I will personally leave you feedback on your fics, even if you choose to write for a fandom I'm not familiar with - so please make sure you send link me to your table when you're done!

[+] You absolutely do not have to be on my friends list to participate in this challenge - the more, the merrier, I say! =)

[+] This challenge will run from June 21st, 2014 until September 22nd, 2014.

THE PROMPTS
Please choose from one of the prompt tables below. If one of the prompts stumps you, feel free to substitute another prompt from another table in its stead. You are free to interpret the prompt in any way that you wish.

Yay, prompts! :D

God, this summer is going to be rough... I'll participate in Camp NaNo in July, because there are 2 short stories I want to write for a German contest which need to be between 2500 and 8000 words each. If all goes well, I'll reach my 10k NaNo goal.
Afterwards, I'll probably claim at least 1 of your tables. Means, I have about 7 weeks left for that. Should be enough. :)

Good luck to all participants

I'm late to the party, as always. :D
But here's my claim:

Username: janey_p
Chosen Table: Table #1
Table Link: http://janey-p.livejournal.com/6743.html

I'm aiming for exactly 100 words per prompt. Let's see if I can write 2500 words in 2 weeks and finish all 5 tables. But I'm not holding my breath and therefore I start small. :D
ext_1162274: (Default)

[identity profile] janey-p.livejournal.com 2014-09-11 09:47 am (UTC)(link)
2 prompts done and notes for all prompts for up to Table 2, Prompt 5. \o/
Looks like I might keep my streak of "2 tables per year"... XD
ext_1162274: (Default)

[identity profile] janey-p.livejournal.com 2014-09-15 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
4 prompts done now and notes for all but 6 prompts for the rest of the tables. Only 1 more week to go. Let's see if I can step this up. XD

But I'm going to be daring an claim the next table:

Username: janey_p
Chosen Table: Table #2

YAY! Good luck! When you write, you usually write more words for one prompt than I plan on writing for all of them this year. So you already have written a lot more than I have. ^^

Who's going to make you a banner this year? ;)
