This is the place to tell us what you want to read, or what you fancy writing. Ideally, we are looking for broad themes, such as:

  • Tools of the trade
  • Return to nature
  • A fork in the path
  • Anachronism
  • Coping mechanisms
  • Harlequin romances
  • Cowboys and the wild west
  • Robots, AIs and cyborgs, oh my!
  • Birds of prey
  • Games


Each fortnight, we'll see what's been suggested, pick one of the ideas, or possibly combine similar ideas, and post it as a challenge.

First challenge will go up Sunday, 10th of May.

Eons ago one of my favorite flashfic coms had prompts of four unrelated words. Like one challenge would be "rain, green, soft, able." I'd like to see the occasional prompt of that type. :-)

Undercover, secret identity, mistaken identity?

Or "heat wave," because it's starting to get very hot where I am. :)

I love themes that can be taken to mean more than one thing (like "games" above). I always suggest "blue" and "invisible" and maybe even other ones like "warm".

ETA: I reckon "Gold" would be a good one, too...

I'm on a roll...

Hmmm... Well, I suppose a few more random ideas won't hurt! So here's some words.

- exception to the rule
- buried
- mistakes
- break free
- back in time
- apologies
- accidentally in love
- life or death
- like magic

Ha. Well, at least I contributed... :/

How about a random word generator, where participants go to an URL like this: http://watchout4snakes.com/creativitytools/RandomWord/RandomWordPlus.aspx

and have to write their fic on whatever their word is. Honor system, of course, that they don't hit 'refresh' to get a better word.

Or, provide an opening sentence that everyone can riff off of. "It was a dark and stormy mid-afternoon."
