    Today we are happy to announce our first ever PROMPT CONTEST. The contest is a great way for you to flex your writing muscles. Participating will earn you fantastic things—from participation badges all the way to Steam games and cash prizes!

    The prompt contest runs as following: there will be an announced prompt and all members of the forum will have the opportunity to take the announced prompt and create a 250-500 word synopsis of a story that could be brought forth from the prompt. The most creative and interesting prompts will win one of several prizes after being voted on by the forum staff. Only one staff member will know who wrote which prompt to keep the voting fair and unbiased.

    RULES
    1. One prompt per member
    2. 250-500 words, no exceptions

    Please feel free to be as creative as you can. While everyone is starting from the same basic foundation, we want to see how you can make the prompt your own. Ways to make the prompt your own include: creating a fascination character or party of characters, developing a unique plotline, and utilizing the given elements as a way to deepen your story while not relying on it to completely guide your path.


    PROMPT
    HERO/HEROINE wakes up in the middle of a seemingly dark and scary forest. Out of nowhere, the plants come aglow with blues, greens, and purples. A gentle humming buzz can be heard echoing throughout the once-dark forest. Surely this cannot be a hallucination?


    Send your submissions to @RMMV by February 25th to enter the contest. Happy writing, everyone!
     
  2. I have two questions:

    1. How are words counted?

    I just wrote a story, which has a few words with dashes (-), which Word counts as a single word. I currently have 496 words, so I'm in a danger zone.

    2. @whataddress now?

    Not sure who to send the prompt to. (wink)
     
  3. 1. @Cate can answer this for you :)

    2. @RMMV sorry, I forgot to add that.
     
  4. Just checking, we'rer sending these as a private message to RMMV, right?

  5. Yes, send them to the user @RMMV :) You can click on the red RMMV text in this post and click start conversation :D
     
  6. @JibstaMan, you don't need to worry about that. The word processor program I use does not count them as words, and I will be sure to double check entries that are just over the mark if they utilize dashes just in case. Can't wait to see your entry!
     
  7. It seems a bit weird we don't just post them out in the open, but eh, that's a minor worry. I'll participate if I can.
     
  8. I think one potential reason is not to know who wrote it, and vote on the merit of the piece and not the popularity of the person.
     
  9. @Bizarre Monkey, just as @MinisterJay says--It's to limit the knowledge of who wrote which piece. Xy and I are the ones who have access to the submissions. The staff, who will see the entries by number (and not by who wrote it) will then vote on the entries that they think are best.

  10. That's actually a very fair reason.

    Carry on. ^.^
     
  11. Hello guys just giving this a little bump to see what's going on. Do we have an idea of how many people are participating so far? Just curious. :)
     
  12. There is one week left to enter the contest.
     
  13. Kay I submitted, woo!
     
  14. Four days left. Still time to get that 250-500 word synopsis of the story.

    Friendly reminder that we have about one day left in the Writing Prompt Contest.

  16. Lol. The contest voting part has not even began yet. You may win. With the anonymous entrant postings, no one will know it was from you...unless you made it too obvious. (smile)

    You did win the "Who asked the most, 'DID I WIN?' contest, that was a secret contest, that just ended, and I hereby award you with a winner like mark on your post.
