    Hello fellow NSWFF-ers!

    We are more than a month into the new year, and we already have a great start to our tales told outside of a galaxy far far away. This time of year, our muses are bright, and our pens are itching to write - and so, we are providing you with added impetus to do so. That's right, it is time for a Mods' challenge! [face_dancing]


    We are proud to present you with the Mods' Picture Challenge!

    Your task, should you so accept, is simple . . .



    The Challenge

    We have all heard it said that a picture speaks a thousand words. For this challenge, pick a number from the sign-up sheet below, and from that number you will be assigned a picture to use as a prompt for your tale. With your picture as your inspiration, your job will then be to write a story, at least 1,000 words long, with that picture as your subject and inspiration. There is no word limit to your stories, and we encourage you to let your muses to go wild – although, remember, only what you have completed and posted in a chaptered story by the deadline will be eligible for the voting. Also remember that within those chapters that you have posted, your 'picture' must be clearly visible.

    Your story may be posted at any time from the opening of this thread, until the deadline, and once posted, feel free to provide a link for your story in this thread. Also, please remember to put [Mods' Picture Challenge] in your subject line, so that the stories are easy to find.



    The Voting

    The winner will be decided by voting. So, when the time comes, choose which entries you thought to use their picture-inspiration in the most creative manner, and PM that and a second place vote, as well, to one of your NSWFF mods.

    Everyone may vote – not only those who wrote entries. As a matter of fact, we encourage any and all to vote! Remember, though, do not vote for yourself, or vote with socks.



    Winning

    Scoring will be based on votes. Each vote for 1st place will be 2 points, a vote for 2nd place will be worth 1 point. The person with the most total points will win 1st place, 2nd most votes 2nd place and so on. Three prizes will be awarded:

    1 Week of colors for 1st place
    72 hours of colors for 2nd place
    24 hours for 3rd place



    The Deadlines

    Your stories are due by March 22nd, 11:59 board time
    Your votes are due by March 29th, 11:59 board time



    Now, that said, let's get started! :)

    Aaaaand the deadline for the stories is already tomorrow and we only have one entry done eligible for voting. Is there anyone who would like an extension on that to have more time to work on their entries? :)

    Ewok Poet - Thank-you for the feedback! How does the 22nd sound for everyone, in that case? :)

    DaenaBenjen42 - Most certainly! And that goes for anyone - even if you don't get a story done in time for the challenge, these prompts are always open for writers. We are just eager to see more stories going. :)
