    So, some of you were asking for more prompts and writing challenges, and this is our answer! :)

    Every other Friday, we will post a simple prompt for you to write for. There are no complicated rules or strings attached to this challenge - you may write as long or as short as you want, and you may write about whatever you want. You may write for old prompts and new prompts alike, the point of this thread is just to inspire people to write.

    When you are done, feel free to post a link to your stories here. We look forward to reading them. :)

    Note to self: Must not take up another prompt challenge. Must concentrate on my studies.

    Oh, well... If I've got some free time, I may think of it.

    Lauré :)

    Huzzah! We have our first participant. Thank-you for participating. [:D]

    I am just excited to see all of these muses up and running. [face_dancing] Prompts are made to be given into, that's for certain. [face_mischief] *cough* laurethiel1138 */cough* [face_batting]

    Unfortunately, my muse didn't bite. Might I suggest short phrases as possible prompts? A single word is sometimes too broad to work with.

    Oh, I am sorry to hear that. :( I am sure we can switch some of the prompts up to include phrases. As a whole, we are going to keep these as general as possible so that we do not limit anyone's inspiration with too narrow a prompt. These are starting points, for the most part, just to get the pens working. :)

    That said, I hope that your muse comes to you! Whether it be for this prompt or the next. [:D]

    Woohoo! I am excited to see that this is already sparking things for you guys. :D

    So, your second prompt is:

    Forgive and forget.


    Have fun! [face_dancing]

    Now, I am still finishing up writing for the first one. Inspiration did not hit me until the last minute - because, of course. :oops:8-}

    You do not need to post a link if you do not wish, or you may post a link with every update, if you wish. It's whichever you wish. :D

    I am going to get around to making an index of the replies when I get a moment, to make replies easier to find, as well.


    EDIT: I wrote a reply for the second prompt in my [link=http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...drabbles-updated-2-11.50009080/page-5]Tolkien ficlet thread[/link]. Yes, I glossed over the lonely first prompt to do so. But now, I will turn around and give the poor prompt its due accord. :p

    I think I must truly have a one-track mind, for when I saw the prompt I could think only of this quote from The Hobbit:

    "And he never forgave. And he never forgot."

    Oops, I am a day late with these. I got my Friday's mixed up in my mind. :oops: 8-}

    But, your third prompt is:

    The teacher becomes the student.

    Enjoy. :)
