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.

(Sorry, gang, I'm posting these in [livejournal.com profile] talechasing just for this month to make the weekly round-up easier ... my own writing journal is aflood with long lists of other spam ;P)

I'd forgotten I'd written this. I found it with all my floody notes. It's sloppy as anything - got way too carried away with the cheesy melodramatic verses at the start, for example - but I'm too lazy to tidy up.

The management takes no responsibility for nausea, diarrhoea, etc.

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.

Sorry, couldn't resist another little drabble exercise ... happy post-essay energy to burn ;)

Actually, you may have noticed you have a squillion comments on various entries ... sorry? ;P

This drabble (which is indeed a transparent excuse for me to ask certain questions I have nursed in the murky depths of my brain, yes) is just a short-and-simpley, but I won't put a word limit on it anyway just in case someone mistakenly asks Goldie a question.

For newcomers and/or people who don't write often, feel free to list and introduce a few of your characters (or leave a link to a page where you've already done something similar) ...


1. Post a little comment saying 'I'm in!'

2. Others post with a character and a question they'd like to ask them.
(Put something like this in the subject heading: [Character Name], [Question]?)

3. You respond in the space of one LJ comment and then retaliate respond with a character and a question to ask. (The response, by the way, can either be a direct answer to the person who asked the question, or an indirect answer via a drabble snippet ... whichever you prefer.)

4. Carry on in this way as long as you like ;)


Oh, and I've also put links to the various drabble-games in the sidebar there, Just Because ... feel free to rearrange, change or delete at your whim ...

*dons the Jenna-hat*

Yup, another update within a bit less than a week, but I'm trying to keep things roughly in synch with Wednesday or Thursday. Or don't we care? ;D

Um, question? *raises hand* Am I supposed to put alerts for standard writing/drabbles people do in their journals (ie. non-talechasing thingies)? Ta ;)

(We're approaching the 150 mark on the other drabbles, incidentally ... 15,000 words! Let us be proud or scared, one of the two ;D)

Just in case anyone occasionally feels like something with a bit of dialogue practice, I thought I'd start off this other random Thing too ...

Le General Idea

1. Comment on this main post to say 'I'm in!'

2. Someone else replies to your comment, picking two of your characters and a topic of conversation. You oblige in 300 words or less (just because I don't know what the length limit on an LJ comment is). ;)

3. You retaliate by picking two of their characters and another topic of conversation.


Multiple people can respond to your 'I'm in!' post, clearly. People can also challenge you more than once. And if you see someone else challenged to do a topic of conversation you like, maybe you can pick two characters and answer it as well - I dunno, does that seem too cluttered or complicated?

Not sure how popular this will be, but it couldn't hurt to be preemptive with collapsing comments, either - when you challenge someone, put the two characters and conversation topic in the title or summat.

Feedback and all general weirdness welcome ^_^

Edit: Oops, didn't think of that ... if you don't want character crossover, just say so in your commenty thingy - otherwise let's just assume that no-one minds.

Edit #2: About the prompty format - let's just do whatever we individually please, eh? So long as there are titles and whatnot, we'll know what's happening. ;D

Oh, and word limits have gone totally out the window, completely arbitrary as they were anyway, so just write as much as will fit in one comment. Whee! ^o^
