A "Prompt Off" pits authors against each other to write responses for different prompts. There will be three rounds, each with a unique prompt. Authors can choose to sign up for as many of the three rounds as they like.
- Because life is busy, responses must be limited to 500-1000 words.
- All entries must be stand alone stories (but if you want to add more to it after the event is over, go for it).
- After the cut off point for a round, there will be no more entries allowed for that round.
- If you sign up for a round, you must write at least one story.
- If you are not signed up for a round, you may write a story based on the prompt, but it will not be considered a part of the "Prompt Off" event.
- Validated and Unvalidated authors are welcome!
- Fandom and original fiction welcome!
Each round will also have an additional optional challenge, should you wish to take things up a notch. (Ex: As many responses as possible, no second person, limited fandoms, etc.)
At the very end, the participants and their stories will all be acknowledged with their own paper plate award, meaning there are no losers!
Let’s fire up those creative juices and dust off those keyboards!!
