ROUND 2 SIGNUPS  



Okay everyone I would like to welcome everybody to the signups for the second round of the Original fiction ficathon rivival. I hope that you are telling all you know about this because the more people we have the better this will be. We had 10 great stories come out of the last ficathon and I want even more this time. In order to sign up you will need a fictionpress account which you can get for free here a valid email address and lots of original ideas.

Now I'm sure that there is a few of you who are like "What is Ficathon" and its basically a story prompt exchange. You will submit a prompt listing the genre and rating of a story of your choice. Also 3 things that you want and don't want in it and 3 quotes, words, or references to bands, tv shows, movies, books or real people. You can have as many as you would like but remember that it is easier on whoever is writing if you keep your wants/not wants vague.
 
After the signups, you will be able to pick your top choices for which story that you would like to write. And you will have to write a 3,000 word story including all of the info that the prompt that you recieved includes. Its tons of fun and I hope that you all participate. I have hopes to return this to its former glory. Here's an example of the form that you will need to fill out. Just replace this information with your own.

Name: Belle
Fictionpress Username: Epic Scarf
Email Address: officathon@gmail.com
Where You Heard of this: other fictionpress users
Genre: Romance, Drama
Rating: any
Things Wanted: a band, lots of drama, exciting names, a fist fight
Things NOT Wanted: death, country music, supernatural creatures (zombie's are exceptable but not necessary)
Quotes: reference to Cobra Starship (the band or their music), saying "I'm sorry" to something that a person has absolutely no control over i.e. someone’s foot itching, the game (here if you don't know what this is)

But yeah here you go, tell everyone about this and have fun with it. You'll have plenty of time to write this so don't worry about time being an issue. More dates will be announced eventually so keep a look out. Thanks

Hi,

I heard about this through the SKOW listserv and thought it looked interesting! One question--where do we submit prompts? Should we reply to this lj post or to officathon@gmail.com or elsewhere?

Thanks!
