    Hello fellow judges!!!
    I’d like to continue working on the contest! We stilk need to choose the rest of the genres and settle on the prompts we want!

    So far for the genres and prompts, we have this:
    1 Action (prompt: ice)
    2 romance (prompt: rose? Raven?)
    3 horror (prompt: monster under…[Read more]

        Imma put for the undecided ones, what I think:
        2. Rose
        3. Marionette or monster under bed
        4. End of world (?)
        5. Circus
        6. Raven
        (Wheres 8?)
        9. Jealousy (?)

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Whoops! 9 is supposed to be 8 XD i like your ideas!

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

        Perhaps romance could be rose, the mystery could be circus, fantasy could be raven, and my idea for dystopian could be: emotionless. And maybe for crime, the prompt could be masked? I’m not sure what for mystery. My idea was Marrionette, but the other ideas are great!

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Oooh! I like emotionless for dystopian!!! And masked for crime!!!! They leave a perfect amount of room for a twist

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

        Aw, thanks! I like prompts that give you inspiration, but also have room for your story to sprout! That’s why I like, “monster under the bed” for horror so much! It could be any monster! I think I’ll have to vote for that one for horror!

        gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

        Crime prompt: Open Window?
        Romance: Summer?

          shadesofevil replied 2 years ago

          can I join this?

          gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

          I mean for romance photograph or lipstick smudge

        scubatuba replied 2 years ago

        @shadesofevil not as a judge. Once we start the contest everyone (besides judges) is free to submit an entry.

        scubatuba replied 2 years ago

        Lets keep brainstorming!

          dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

          Sure! What else do we need to think about?

          shadesofevil replied 2 years ago

          never mind then

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          We still don’t have ten genres I don’t think, and we haven’t officially chosen any prompts yet. If you guys could, try and comment a version of the list of genres and prompts I made that you guys would want, and then we can mix and match stuff so everyone’s happy!

          shadesofevil replied 2 years ago

          Realistic fiction, drama, school, idk.

    @eloiseruizpalma
    @evilxaudrey
    @dreamerdraws
    Alright, so, we need to get an official list of rules, and decide on what ten genres we want to to, and create the prompts. I do want to do
    Action, with the prompt “Ice”
    Romance
    Horror
    I want to keep the prompts very simple to leave a lot of room for creativity.
    And the rules I’m thinking…[Read more]

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

        Could Mystery, Fantasy, and Dystopian also be part of this? Plus I have some ideas for prompts if you want to hear them! Also, in addition, there could be some rules like:
        You must show good sportsmanship, no saying the other work is bad, or being mean to anyone.
        The stories have to be 100% your original work, and if someone helped with the idea,…[Read more]

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Alright! So,
          Must show good sportsmanship
          Your work must be your own original story (no fanfiction)
          You are allowed to get some ideas form others for your story, but you must credit them.
          Be respectful.
          Sounds good, and id love to hear your prompt ideas. I wanna try and come up with prompts that would make people think outside the box!

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

        Thanks! but actually, when I said original, I didn’t exactly mean no fanfiction, I meant that you can’t steal a passage from another source, but that works too! For the mystery, I was thinking the word, “Circus”, for the fantasy, maybe, “Raven”, and I don’t know for the dystopian. In addition, some other prompts could be, “Camp”, “Hot”, “Shine”,…[Read more]

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          I like it! And yea, no plagiarizing ahould definitely be a rule.

          eloiseruizpalma replied 2 years ago

          @scubatuba they will be eliminated if they copy someone elses work?

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Yea, I think their entry would be invalid and we wouldn’t accept any more entries if someone plaigarized

        evilxaudrey replied 2 years ago

        Romance could be: Rose or some type of flower
        Horror: Monster under the bed
        Hope this helped!

          dreamerdraws replied 2 years ago

          For horror, I was thinking maybe a marrionette, but I like the monster under the bed idea a lot!

          evilxaudrey replied 2 years ago

          Your idea is really good!

          eloiseruizpalma replied 2 years ago

          yess!!

        scubatuba replied 2 years ago

        So for genres so far, we have
        1 Action (prompt: ice)
        2 romance (prompt: rose? Raven?)
        3 horror (prompt: monster under the bed? Marionette? Closet?)
        4 dystopian (prompt: ??)
        5 mystery (prompt: Raven? Circus?)
        6 fantasy (prompt: Raven? Necklace?)

        We need 4 more! And, I really liked the prompt raven, so I put it as an option for other genres.

          gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

          Science fiction with the prompt of science gone wrong?
          Coming of age/teen fic (prompt ?)
          Crime (prompt he’s watching her or something creepy like that)
          One could be a poem if allowed?
          Also, are we doing short stories?

          gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

          Sorry this is a little late, don’t doubt that I’m fully committed! 🙂

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          I want to keep the prompts really short, but I do like that idea! How about, science fiction with the prompt spilled? Maybe we could do a poem, we’ll see!

        It may be a little bit late but can I join?

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Not as a judge, but once the contest starts you can enter anytime!

        gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

        Yeah spilled is a great prompt! Sorry, I just love poetry! 🙂

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          No need to apologize ^^

    @evilxaudrey
    Hello! Thank you all for showing interest in judging! So, I’ll give you all a bit more of a detailed description of my idea. My plan is for this to be a long thing. we would have ten genres picked, and write a loose prompt for each one, and release two per month. So it would be like, say we released an…[Read more]

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years, 1 month ago

        Hello, um, I saw your post on the main chat. I love writing, and I do write a lot of stories, so I feel as if I could possibly be qualified to help judge if you want… This is a great idea! If not, I’ll still participate in the contest!

          scubatuba replied 2 years, 1 month ago

          Alright! If everyone tagged still wants to be a judge, well have an uneven number and it’ll work out perfect!

        dreamerdraws replied 2 years, 1 month ago

        Yay!

        evilxaudrey replied 2 years, 1 month ago

        I’ll still be a judge!

          dr-m replied 2 years ago

          Okay, i’ll judge.

        scubatuba replied 2 years ago

        @dr-m well, hold on a bit, because if everyone tagged wants to judge still, there won’t be a position open. We need three jufmdges or five, any more is too much, and four is an even number.

          dr-m replied 2 years ago

          ok, i don’t care that much…if not judge, i might participate in some of the story contests.

        thecoven4ever replied 2 years ago

        Hi! Can I be a judge? I think this is an awesome idea.

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          We’ll see, if we have spots open.

        eloiseruizpalma replied 2 years ago

        i still wanna be judge.. and yeah! this is a good idea!!

        jinae replied 2 years ago

        I still want to be a judge if you don’t mind…and I prologues for going into your activity

          jinae replied 2 years ago

          scubatuba replied 2 years ago

          Don’t worry about going into my activity, it’s there for people to look at 🙂

        scubatuba replied 2 years ago

        @gracieofevil
        Do you still want to be a judge? 🙂

          gracieofevil replied 2 years ago

          Yes!!!!!!!! 🙂 Sorry for late reply

        thecoven4ever replied 2 years ago

        Ok thanks!
