    Is this about writing a Star Wars novel?

    Nope. It's all original works.

    I might be interested. Could judge, too, if you need an extra hand. :)

    Oh wow, miss a day by the computer and look what happens :p

    I've got to get ready to leave now, so I'll comment more on this later. I don't mind helping to figure out how this is going to work, but I don't want to be in charge, only because I want to write. Like I need to give myself anymore to do writing wise. (I'm editing a novel, a play, several short stories, plus I have at least six short story ideas kicking around in my head as we speak and I still want to novelize what I call my 'game idea'. See, I know how you feel Nem!)

    I'll host :)

    I'm glad to see all of you interested! And glad that the threads worked :) This is all original fiction. Yes, you can use betas as long as the betas aren't judging.

    I'm going to let the interest thread run until the weekend, and then I think I'm going to start this up :) All of you who expressed interest will be getting PMs from me.

    Hopefully the prompt will be something that catches my attention. No matter what, I'll try to write something for it.

    I'm tentatively interested. I'm not sure what I can come up with, as I've got so many stories roiling around in my brain!

    Yeah, I'm interested, but it depends on the rules.

    I participated in the first one, and rather enjoyed writing the entry...derivative as it was. ;)


    Whether or not I try my hand at this one may depend wholly on whether my Muse is taking a nap at the time the prompt is offered up.

    I'm up for it.

    Could be interresting to find out if I actually have talent for writing originals. Only tried a few SW fics over the years.

    By "depends on the rules," what exactly do you guys mean?

    To me it's a format thing. I liked the way contests 1, 2, and 4 were run. 3 and 5 didn't sound like they'd be as much fun or would be more time than I could really commit to. For example, I like the way the Prequel and Classic rewrites are run over in their respective boards because you can hop in an out whenever you want, and each prompt is judged individually.

    I realize that may not be great for you guys if you're worried about participation.

    It's going to be like those. Nothing complicated, just a prompt, a few weeks to write, and then judged and scored by judges.
