|01:37 pm - Prompts for Writer Selection|
The prompts are available!
They are all listed below ready for writer selection or for artist inspiration!
How do you select a prompt? The prompts are laid out in alphabetical order by regular character to allow for easy review if you have a particular preference. Where a prompt includes two regular characters, head to the one first in the alphabet. Where a prompt includes a regular and a recurring, head to the regular character.
Review the list and choose the prompt. Comment/feedback to this post indicating the prompt you have selected.
You can choose more than one prompt! Write as many stories as you wish! The more the merrier as far as we're concerned. Please remember to ensure you note any exclusions.
There are many, many prompts so please try to choose one that is not already taken. However, we are allowing writers to choose the same prompt this year to encourage greater participation so if the one you really, really want has already been chosen you can still select it.
Writers should also read the post entitled Writers' and Artists' Guidelines for 2009 Ficathon
