This challenge was created in 2007 by [link=http://boards.theforce.net/ASP/user.asp?usr=the_wandering_shadow]the_wandering-shadow[/link]. It was/is such great fun, that it should be done again. Now under a sock to ward of DRL, so if something happens to your current host the thread will go on anyway. Teh Rulez: 1) You have to keep the diary of a character for a whole year. It does not matter if it's canon cast or OC, AU, whatever. Write the diary of a droid, surprise us all. There was a diary of Yoda's Lightsabre last year. Nothing's impossible! 2) You have to update a least twice a month. You can update as often as you want. Just remember you need to have enough story left for the rest of the year. 3) The length of the updates does not matter. Write a paragraph, write pages, do what you want. Just do it. 4) I'm the keeper of the documents, meaning the Indexer. If you fail to update for a month, I'll send you a reminder and give you another week to update. This means seven days from the missed month update, not seven days from the date of the PM. For example, if your diary was last updated on March 3, and you haven't updated in 31 days - April 3 (NOTE: the number of days is subject to the number days in a given month, so if you last updated in February, it would be 28 days +7), you would have until April 10 to update, regardless if I failed to PM you until the fifth of April. If you fail to update after the extended 7 days, you're out. NO Exceptions! If you want to do NaNo next year, keep that in mind. Do some updates up in front, you'll be amazed how little time to write you might have. 5) Make my life easy, will you? PM me when you update your diaries. 6) No posting (and writing) until 1.1.2009 Think and talk as much as you want though. 7) There will be a mini-challenge each month. I will give you a theme or topic to integrate into the diary. It is NOT obligatory, just something to get your imagination running. 8) If you failed to update for a month three times, the next time you don't update for a month, the diary will automatically drop out of the challenge. It does not matter if that three times are in a row or scattered across the year. If there's any questions left, tell me or pm me. I hope we'll have a great time together.
