Important: [20 Jan 2004|12:39pm]

The original purpose of this community was to have a group of writers, who know what kind of challenges work well for them, would challenge each other to write and therefore, improve their ability. Somehow, it turned into me giving out daily challenges, which is just a little bit too much for me to do on my own. Just asking for anyone in the community to give me some help didn't work, so, I want to do this differently.

I need at least four people, preferably six, to help me out. We would have a rotation of challenges. Person 1 would make a challenge the first day, then person 2 the next, 3 the next, 4 the next, 5 the next... so on, until person 1 comes up again. This way, we not only have a bit of a support group, where all of us help each other, but we will have a variety of different minds coming up with challenges and, therefore have a chance to help more people write more stuff.

If I don't get at least four people, I'm afraid I'll have to shut down the community for good. I don't want to do this, because I think it's a good idea, but I can't handle it on my own.

However, DO NOT say that you will help and then pull out. Please. Do not waste my, and everyone else in the community's, time.

Okay. This is a plea. Please, please start this community going again. It was running great, and then all of a sudden it stopped. I really enjoyed writing the things tht I did, and a friend of mine just joined and hopes that this runs again.

So, um, kibosh, I think you were the moderator here, would you consider starting this up again?

Challenge #47 [28 Aug 2003|11:04am]

[ mood | awake ]

Write a story in which a group of characters is at a party) or some sort of gathering more fitting for your fandom/story) and, much like a mystery novel or a game of Clue, people start dying/disappearing.

All previous challenges are closed. This challenge will end September 27th.

By the way, there is a rather large change to madpash. Original stories are now allowed. However, this does not include self-inserts and Mary Sues in fan fiction posted here.

Okay guys. [26 Aug 2003|01:22pm]

[ mood | refreshed ]

I'm starting this community up again, with the challenges every day and all of that. The problem was that I was wanting people to answer the challenges instead of just trying to help out writer's muses.

Anyway, starting tomorrow, the challenges are opened back up. All of the old challenges are officially closed when I post the new one.

Thanks for everyone's patience.

"A Rotten End to a Lovely Day", Harry Potter [15 Jul 2003|02:07am]

[ mood | depressed ]

Story Title: A Rotten End to a Lovely Day
Challenge #: 25 - "Write a story which centers on a character's secret guilty pleasure."
Fandom: Harry Potter
Disclaimer: Don't own. Don't sue.
Rating: PG
Word count: 628
Summary: "Though we are separated now, I know that he cries every night before he sleeps." Remus reconciles his own grief with Harry's. And this is why we don't write stupid stories at 2 am when we have work the next day.
Warnings: Probably spoilers for OotP. Very death-oriented. Probably not most people's idea of a 'secret guilty pleasure.'

Did you ever think as a hearse goes by...?Collapse )

Vacation! [27 Jun 2003|09:52pm]

[ mood | rushed ]

I've been terrible, I know. I'm getting ready to leave on a vacation, so I've been a little lax in my posting here. I'm gone until the 14th of July, so I'm posting all of the challenges until then. Behind each lj-cut lies a challenge, but the font will be white so you have to select the text to read it. This is so that you don't accidentally see future challenges before the correct date.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I won't have access to LJ while I'm gone.

Select the text in between the parentheses to see the challenge. If you cheat and look at future challenges ahead of time, just don't post the response until after the day it would be posted. Any problems with this? Tell me quick before I leave or e-mail me at dilificus@hotmail.com and I'll get back to you when I can.
