    Here's my entry - Only If. It was very weird writing a diary entry (but also enjoyable, and writing in first person). Seeing as I was channelling a 14 year old boy, I ended up rolling my eyes a lot.

    Finally posted the first entry in my diary!

    Lyberfunk, a Cyberpunk 2077 Story

    It's going to have spoilers for the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, so if you don't want any spoilers I'd advise against reading it.

    So I am thinking about maybe risking a second diary, which I might put outside of competition. Though would it be possible as well to have, for now, two run and then maybe eventually move one into Out of Competition?

    @Anedon, if I'm reading this correctly then sure. There's no penalty to your other diaries if one goes to out of competition.

    Since @Anedon is creating presedence here I'd like to do something similar. I have just began wondering how Din Djarin's letters to Grogu would have been, but I'm not sure if I can pull it off as a complete half year, so I may have to kick it out of competition if I run out of ideas.

    First little chapter in "Hi Kiddo" is up and we will see if Mando has enough to be said for half a year forward in time.

    Hey guys, is it too late to sign up for this? I have minimal fan fic experience, but this would be a perfect way to keep actively writing throughout the year to improve on my skills. Seems like a really fun task too.

    I think you can still join, if you get two entries done until the end of the month.

    Can you skip one? So maybe one this month? Or two super short ones?

    [mention]Jordan1Kenobi [/mention] there are quite a few challenges going around the board and they are lots of fun and good practice.

    I think I can get two done by the end of Jan. I’ve already been working on something. My ideas keep changing, because there’s so many good possibilities!

    Diaries are good because they don't have to stick to a genre or story line. One entry could be about chasing a bad guy, and the next could be about the boredom of space travel. I need to write the second entry for my one soon.

    2020 Diary Challenge Results

    Firstly, apologies for posting this on February 13th instead of the 1st. (Time has been losing its usual meaning during the ongoing pandemic.) But we have counted the votes, and we have two winners for last year's Diary Challenge:

    Diary of a Very Sympathetic Padawan by devilinthedetails.

    Realizing my Heart's Fondest Dream by WarmNyota_SweetNyesha.

    Congratulations, @devilinthedetails and @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha ! And thanks to those who sent in votes, and to everyone who participated in the 2020 challenge.
