    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 of are
    You must follow the prompt
    You must tag all judges
    You must post your entry in the open chat
    What do yall think?

        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, you need to write that someone helped you with the idea.
        Please don’t insult yourself or your work. This is more of a suggestion than a rule, you can be self-deprecating, but here we like to respect everyone’s talents, and insulting yourself on purpose might make others feel bad.
        This sounds great, though!

          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!

        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”, “Flight”, “Brothers” and “Fish”.

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

          @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

        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!

          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! 🙂
