    Welcome to our new monthly challenge!

    As we fall in love with our individual fandoms, it's hard to find common ground for a writing challenge. Write by Theme is something to bring us all together because there is only one rule: write something that fits the theme--one element or plot point.

    It doesn't matter what fandoms you like, what styles you prefer, what length you achieve. There are no prizes, no voting, no limits. Just write!

    And how do we decide on a theme? We all choose together! Each month, we'll have a week to vote on which theme we want, and the remainder of the month is for writing! I chose the first round of themes, but please feel free to submit your own for future months.

    (Note: Credit where credit is due: I adapted this idea from Goodreads.)

    Every time I see these polls, I get the intense desire to write all of them into one vig. Thank the Maker sanity prevails . . . most of the time. :D

    EDIT: BTW, does "no dialogue" include monologues as well? [face_nitpick]

    Yep! The characters (or character) don't (doesn't) speak aloud.

    I've started on a no-dialog story... Well, near the end, there'll be some dialoge, but I won't be getting to that in October.

    This month is tied! That means you can choose either (or both!) of the two winning themes, No Dialogue and Set in a Restaurant. You have until Oct. 31 to post!

    We'll turn this thread into a place to link to your stories and chat about the challenge! Also, feel free to suggest themes for our November poll.

    I'm having so much fun with this! I haven't written anything since the boards moved in March (so much for using the down-time wisely! :p ), and this has gotten me back in in a fun way :)

    Don't forget that if you have a theme idea, post it here or PM me! The next poll will be coming soon, and I'd love ideas :)
