Greetings fellow role-players!

I've been eyeing this empty forum lately and I think it's far past time I did something about it and got some active RP going. So, I would like to propose a 30 Day Site Write Challenge!



_____

What is a Site Write?


A Site Write is a short story you write on a whim about a given topic/event/place/person/word/ect. You are simply asked to write whatever comes to mind and heart. There are no limits to how long your story can be, but please keep in mind that we are not writing novels here. ;)

Site Writes are a wonderful way to flesh out a character, help get over any writer’s block you may be having, aid in inspiration, and keep those creative juices flowing! The goal of a site write, is to stimulate your creative side by having you write about reactions, events, situations, etc. that you may or may not normally see your character in. Think of this writing topic as a way to break between your story lines and give personal depth where you may not have had the chance to before.

So here's how it works. Each day, for 30 days, you would be given a simple writing prompt.


(Example):

    Switching Places - Somehow by magic, your character has switched bodies with one of his/her friends/guildmates/enemies. What would you do while in this person's body?

You would then write a short story for your character about this topic.

_____

The Site Write Challenge -

If you think you would enjoy being part of this writing exercise and want to gain a chance at winning a cool prize, then I challenge you to this 30 day Site Write!

The rules are simple, just post every day for a month, starting September 1st, and you will be rewarded at the end of it.

What exactly is the reward? Heck if I know, but trust me it will be worth it. (I'm kicking around the idea of a piece of artwork/signature of one of your characters, or an in-game pet/mount, we will see.) If anyone would like to volunteer prizes (such as art, etc.), please let me know!

Suppose you decide to join the Challenge after its start. Can you still reap the benefits? Yes and no. If you are able to make up and finish all writing prompts by the October 1st deadline, then yes. If not, then no. You have to complete the 30 writing prompts in 30 days to obtain a reward of any sort.

Pretty simple and clear. Post for 30 days, get something nice! (You are also more than welcome to post regardless if you want a prize or not).

_____

*Special Notes*

Starting September 1st October 1st, I will post the first topic of the day below. After that I will post a new topic once per day. All I ask, is that you stay on topic, that it be Warcraft related (since this is Petopia after all), that you follow all forum rules, and that it relates to the topic that is given.

Most of all - HAVE FUN! :D

Oh this is cool; I participated in something similar a while back. :D

Do we have all month to work on the story/prompt? I'm interested, but likely won't be too fast coming up with stories depending on how things are going with school and life at home. :)

I completely understand! You will have 30 days to finish all thirty prompted stories to qualify for a prize. If you're not interested in a prize and just want to complete it for fun, then you can definitely go over the deadline (and I hope if people miss the deadline, they do continue to complete the writing prompts for fun)! I'm doing this to try and get all the great writers here, writing again! :D

I ran this for my RP guild a few years ago and it was a huge hit. I hope it will be just as popular here. ♥

This sounds very fun! I've also got school coming up, so I'm not sure what timing will be like, but I'll try to participate also!

It does would help me to flesh out some characters, but I guess it would be only in english?

I might join in, though if I don't get a solid idea for a prompt, I might not be able to write for it :? My inspiration is picky like that lol...

Also interested in joining! It was sad seeing these forums go unused after so many great RPs played out here.

LupisDarkmoon: I'm glad to hear it! :D I do hope to see people continue to write here even if they don't make the deadline. ♥
Inay: Site writes are always a great way to flesh out characters. It would be in English though. (Just so everyone will be able to read and enjoy it.) :D
Alex: I'd love to see you join in. If only for the prompts that catch your eye and imagination. ;)
Varethyn: I'm delighted to hear that you'll join in and I couldn't agree more about being sad at the current lack of activity in this forum! I really hope this will encourage others to also try to brush the dust off these walls and post more. :D

Ashaine: I'll try, but as english isn't my first language, if someone want to read behind me to correct my mistakes it would be nice. :) (It will make me work my english! :D)

I might give it a shot. Do you have to use the same character each day?

I'd love to give this a try, but I worry that college starts pretty much the day before these prompts start coming in :') I can definitely give it a go, though, as I'd like to get a better feel of Krys as a character in writing, than just what she is now :)

I'm so glad this is getting so much interest! :D

Sadly however, the start date for this may get pushed back until October 1st. My father's health declined unexpectedly this week. He's been in the hospital since Thursday in critical condition and my days lately have consisted of me being at the hospital with him and home only to eat and sleep. :( I'm not sure I will have the time I had hoped to start this on September 1st. I promise this will still happen, the start date is just a bit up in the air right now. So stay tuned. ♥

You and your family come first. Just fire this up when you're able; we'll be here when you're ready and well. :) :hug:

Don't worry about us, like they said, your family is more important, and we'll still be here when you'll be back. :hug:
