    This sounds like fun, but there's no way I'm going to get anything typed up in ten minutes. How you people do it, I have no idea . . . I think I'm going to stew in a pot of envy for a while.

    The response threads are as follows:
    Before [link=http://boards.theforce.net/a/b1/20873879/]10-minute challenge responses[/link]
    Saga [link=http://boards.theforce.net/a/b1/20873837/]10-minute challenge entries[/link]
    Beyond [link=http://boards.theforce.net/a/b1/20873887/]10-minute challenge responses[/link]

    - lazy


    PS - BTW, Ish? If you're not going to have the details of the challenge in the response threads, would you mind editing in a link to this thread? (Yes, I know it's rather self-evident, but still.) It might also be a good idea to have links to the other response threads (maybe it'll lure a strictly BftS reader to Beyond). Thanks.

    I just have to pop in here to encourage more! These, except for the post-mustafar one which had me slack-jawed and the one about the swimmer which had me begging for more, had me seriously tempted to just laugh out loud with how creative and awesome they were. I want to know where people are able to revise in those 10 minutes--I sure couldn't--and if not, dang! We've got serious talent around here. Okay, so maybe I already knew that.

    I should try this. But it's not going to happen right now as I'm being kicked of the computer at random intervals. :p

    But I will probably try it...

    Okay, question, does taking the time to edit and correct typos count against the ten minutes or can one *coughmecough* try and then edit it to make it more pesentable??

    Um, I'd say leave it as is. This is sort of like one of those books that has the rough drafts of the authors and if you can fix typos within the 10 minutes, go for it. Otherwise, we see what we're really capable of in a rush.

    Leona, I'm sure any typos you make will only add to the story. And inspire spin-offs. :p

    Typos can be amusing. :D

    Hey, can it be the opening to a longer fic written in ten minutes?

    Yes, as long as you post it in the response thread and then in your individual story.

    Doo doo do doo! Mine's up in the Before thread.
    This was a real challenge. It was tough not letting myself overthink things and just let it fly.
    I'd love to see this done on set topics since they go so quick.
