Hello all my lovelies reading this. And welcome to my new summer challenge! Things should get pretty interesting, so let's get started. :)
Here's how it works:
Step One-give me 5 random letters and I'll give you 5 random words for an idea starter. From this random listof words, you must come up with your story. It does not have to make up your plot. The words can appear in the story however you wish, providing they go along with my rules, but we'll get to that in a little bit. But I do suggest looking up the various definitions of the different ways you can use that word. :) (I.E.-Brush: bushes, a stroke used when painting)
Step Two-give me a number between 1 and 9. This will determine what element you have to incorporate into your story. The elements of choice are: Calisthenics; Characters; Commiserate; Dialogue; Dramatic Entrances;Endings; Kill a Character; Settings; and finally, Verbs. This does not mean you can choose your own by request. That would take all the fun and surprise out of it. ;)
Step Three-Use that lovely mind of yours and write! :)
Ok, so now that we've gone over that, here are my rules:
I will be assigning your genre. Unless you would really rather choose your own. :)
Please keep it G rated, or at most PG.
I personally, do not like language (trust me, there are ways around it). A little bit of violence is ok, just don't be too descriptive about it, please. :) But absolutely NO erotica.
Please link me to your story when you're done. :)
Deadline is the end of summer, August 31st. (Hence, the "summer" challenge)
The judging period will depend on how busy I am at that time. I will try not to take any longer than a month at the most though. I will try to keep it around maybe 2 weeks, but like I said, it will depend on how busy I am at that time. :)
One thing I will be paying attention to is how you grab my attention as a reader, and how well you can keep my attention. Keep this in mind while writing. :)
Now for the prizes! :)
~Be on my wall and advertise your work on my page for 3 months
~Be a character in my upcoming novel. You get to name the character, pick the gender, the personality, anddescription.
~Get to co-write a chapter of the upcoming novel!
~You will also get to be a judge in my next contest.

~Give me a name and description for my upcoming novel
~Be on my wall and advertise your work on my page for 1 month
~Give me a name to be in my upcoming novel, though I can't promise a big role.
As a little thank you for entering I will advertise all of you on a little wall of fame on my profile from the moment you have posted your story until the results have been finalised.
So that's it! That's all there is to it. I'm so looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! :)
