While on IM, some of us fanfic mods came up with a new and fun way to torture some of you writers. Er, I meant to say we hatched an idea that might be fun if you're interested. We've decided to put out a sort of unique challenge idea. For anyone interested in taking part, you'll be required to write and submit to us half of a short story. Then after all of the submissions are in, we'll randomly redistribute those stories among everyone who is taking part so that the story can be completed. Nobody will have any voice in who gets their story nor in determining its outcome. Here are the criteria for taking part: 1) You must submit an incomplete story. 2) All stories are to take place within the timeframe of the Saga. Original characters can be used, but understand that someone else isn't likely to care as much about your OC as you do. 3) The upper limit for submissions will be 5000 words. 4) To take part, you must submit half of a story by October 10th. 5) After October 10th, you'll be given someone else's intro and will be required to write the conclusion before the end of the month. 6) Do not post your challenge submission here or in any of the forums. Send your submission via PM to one of the mods or, if you'd prefer to e-mail the story file, contact me (Herman) and I'll give you an e-mail address. I'm sure I'm leaving stuff out, so ask questions here.
