An alphabetical list of the topics of the week.

I'll try to update this every week, whenever a new topic is issued, but if I forget, or if you're not happy with the way the list looks, feel free to edit it (and the tags too, if I didn't use the right ones). I don't mind.

The weekly discussion topics )

Yep, it's a tiny list...for now.

Most of you will know by now that I shall be organising a 24 hour writing challenge tomorrow. I'm hoping that everyone will get a chance to join in, despite varying timezones and commitments. I've tried to fit the date around everyone's schedules as much as possible, but it's a busy time of year.

How it will work )

Any questions?

Bring out your ideas!

This is a post for people to suggest any ideas for things they'd like to see in the community and for any questions related to new ideas. Want to start a drabble challenge but you're not sure how? Want to suggest some words for the weekly challenges? Think you've got a brilliant idea for a bigger challenge?

I want to emphasise that everyone is always welcome to just go ahead and try something. Don't feel obliged to check first - just do it! But if you'd like to discuss an idea, go ahead and post here. Discussion, as my tutors keep telling me, builds understanding and creates ideas.

It's now just over a year since I posted my rant on writing and [livejournal.com profile] alintaflame issued her magic realism challenge in response. The first round-up and weekly challenge were posted on the 24th May last year. For those who weren't around then, all of this grew out of an urge to shake things up and inject some fun back into our writing. I reckon we've done that, although things seem to be getting a little stale again.

So, what now )

Oh, and to finish, the text of that rant that started it all. I suggest you glance at the original post if you've not read it, because a lot of good ideas came out of the comments, but I thought it might be useful to have it here within the community as well as buried in my journal.

Semi-serious thoughts: May 18th 2006 )

Let's get messy ^_^

Here's a list of all the weekly mini-challenges to date in alphabetic order. It's easier for the round-uppers to copy paste the information needed for the round-up that way. (In fact, all the round-uppers have to do is highlight the prompt and paste it into the corresponding form now.)

It also saves everyone the need to look through the weekly round-up to search of challenge words.

P.S. Apologies for remaking the post, but I thought it might be easier to find this way. ^-^;

Ah, yes... These are all keywords intended to spark some inspiration, even if it's as short as a drabble.

The Challenge Words )

Current as of the weekly update from Aug 27, 2007.

This is a master list, with links, of all the challenges that bold/foolish talechasers have undertaken. (Shanra's master list saved about a hundred years in making/ordering this, I might add. O_o)

By the way, just a reminder for newcomers who may not know - there's no deadline involved with these challenges. If there's a past challenge you haven't done and would like to do, just do it, and it'll be put into the weekly update that week.

[7 Nov '06] If I've missed something out here in version 1 or made some mistake (likely), let me know.
From now on I'll probably update this full list every December, or every July and December if the challenges start pouring in.

[27 Aug '07] Entries prompted by weekly questions are not included ... this is the weekly challenges only at the moment. Also please note that stories will only be listed by the heading under which they appear in the weekly roundup.

Mini-Challenges A-Z )

I was going to post this in my own journal for my own purposes. Then I realised that other people do exist in the world, and they might want to use it too ;)

This is a list of the mad drabbling going on here - no alphabetical or schematic order, just a straight top-to-bottom copying. So if you're looking for something to drabble about and can't deal with those collapsing commenty thingies *twitch*, just skim down.

Oh, and if you can be bothered, feel free to add more to this list as you make them up**. I'll try to check through the drabbles and update this periodically myself, but we all know how often THAT will be :P

(** ie. pop a comment down below and I'll add it to this list)
Thanks, Shanra! ;)

EDIT: Lo, we have cracked the 100-drabble mark! 10,000 words of dribbling! I mean, drabbling!
Rather fittingly cracked by [livejournal.com profile] rosiphelee, too ;D

EDIT THE SECOND: 150 drabbles fall to the drabble-sword of [livejournal.com profile] rosiphelee ...

By the way, if I seem to be answering every single one of your comments with banal one-liners, it's just to tag to myself that I've added your drabble to the list (telescoping comments strike again! aieee!)

The Drabble Prompt List )

Come, traveller, step softly on the road. The green hills rise around you, grey in the gathering twilight. Can you hear the music in the mist, the fiddles and the flute? Tarry not on the highway. Turn your eyes away from those pale dancers by the water's edge, with their green silk ribbons. For if they catch you in their coils, 'twill be a year and day before you come home again. And only then if you pay their price...

...for your freedom, a tale....
