[image=https://sites.google.com/site/xanify/files/Quill.jpg] Welcome, one and all, to ... The First RPF Drabble Extravaganza! 30 days, 30 prompts, 100 words. Sick and tired of long posts? I know I am. Now, don't get me wrong, long posts can be a thing of beauty: it's great to login first thing in the morning, a cup of coffee in hand, and read all the lovely updates that have come in over the night. But sometimes you just don't have time. Sometimes it's been a long day and you just wanna play, but oh god there are five novel-length posts to get through and your brain explodes. This Drabble Extravaganza is for those times. Every day for the next 30 days, I will post a prompt. This prompt can be anything: a word, a phrase, a sentence, a picture. Your task is simply to write 100 words on that prompt and post it in this thread. At the end of the day I will pick a winner, and post the next prompt, and the next day will begin anew. After 30 days, the person with the most wins will get one (1) week of colours. Depending on how many take part, there may be prizes for 2nd and 3rd place too. I will also give out fun (temporary) titles to participants who make me laugh, sad titles to those who make me cry, and so on so forth. That's it. Simple, eh? [hr] Possibly Frequently Asked Questions 1. Do I have to participate every day? No, you don't. Just write one in whenever you feel like it. 2. Who is eligible to play? Anyone! Just write 100 words on the day's prompt, post it, and you're in! 3. How strictly is this 100-word thing enforced? Hmm. Not very strictly. I can and will disregard entries that are too long, but I'm cool with it if you go over by one or two words. Five is still alright. Ten is pushing your luck. Conversely, your entry will be greatly admired if you manage to hit 100 words on the dot (but admiration will not necessarily translate into a win, so don't put too much effort into that). 4. Is this a Star Wars drabble contest? Non Star Wars? What? Anything goes. I'd prefer it if entries were from the POV of a character of yours - this is a RPF contest, after all, and that would make it a fun exercise - but feel free to write whatever comes to mind. 5. 100 words is too short! My drabble makes no sense without another 500 words of context! If you feel like I'm unlikely to fully grasp the intricacy and beauty of your drabble entry without reams of supporting material ... well, actually, feel free to link to a CS/thread/story, and I'll read it and keep it in mind while judging if I can. But I make no promises on that front. All drabbles should be self-contained little stories if at all possible. 6. I'd like to play but I don't want colours / already have colours / don't want a title. That's okay, play anyway! We can work something out. Maybe a gold star? â˜… 7. I dispute your judgement! This entry should have won and not that entry! All decisions made by the judge (that is, me) are final and non-negotiable. This is because changing my mind in cases like these feels too much like giving someone a cookie and then snatching it away before they can eat it, and I hate that. I promise to be as fair as humanly possible, and I am happy to discuss my decisions and/or explain myself if they're unclear, but I will not be changing my mind unless flagrant TOS-breaking shenanigans were involved in the making of a winning entry. 8. I have a different question... Ask! Feel free to PM/IM me, or ask in this thread (others probably want to know the answer, too, after all). [hr] And The First Prompt Is: [blockquote]#01: I have a bad feeling about this.[/blockquote] (Did you expect anything less than that iconic line? ) Remember, 100 words, and you have until approximately this time tomorrow to write 'em. I will then pick a winner and post the next prompt, and so on so forth for the next 30 days. Go!
