My Ranking Points
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”
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!
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.
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”.
@scubatuba they will be eliminated if they copy someone elses work?
Romance could be: Rose or some type of flower
Horror: Monster under the bed
Hope this helped!
For horror, I was thinking maybe a marrionette, but I like the monster under the bed idea a lot!
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.
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?
Sorry this is a little late, don’t doubt that I’m fully committed! 🙂
