Okay Everyone. Its Belle your mod here....

So ficathon kicked my but this year. And I know that I sorta lacked on my moderatory duties but squiggle_line was all whats going on and has been a fantastically amazing help the past couple of weeks. I know with the summer ending that everyone ends up really busy. But it would be really fantastic if anyone who hasn't completed their ficathon or haven't sent in their links to their stories to comment on this either with the link or with you telling us that youre unable to complete the prompt, which is perfectly fine.

I know that squiggle_line has sent and email already and tried to get you on FP too so If you've already talked to her then awesome... but here are the people we still have to talk to; Kat, Gabby, Dera, Nickel, Brielle, Cassie, Cassandra, and Ava.

If you have submitted a prompt then you will get yours answered even if I have to write them all myself... SO please reply to this and Squiggle_Line and I will get everything sorted out.

Listening to: Los Campesions! and Alex Day

Once everyone has their prompts or once it is January 14th I’ll send out the prompts. If you do not pick then I will have to pick for you.

 Well here you go the sooner that you sign up the sooner we can begin. I'll send out an email after everyone has their prompt picked saying which one you will be doing.

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


People who've signed up (if you're not on the list and you know/thought that you signed up just comment) or email me at officathon@gmail.com



But yeah, After signups I'll send an email out confirming that everyone gave me valid emails and that everyone still wants to do it!! Have fun and have happy holidays...

Your Mod,

Okay sign ups for the next Ficathon will begin on December 15th and they will end on January 1st so be thinking about what you want to suggest. Tell everyone you know about it.

Let me start out by saying how sorry I am for the delay.... Nanowrimo ate up my time to no end, but I won so I guess that it was worth it.

But yeah thats besides the point. I do have the winners. And I have the prizes/banners too. But now the winners and there were actually I think 2 ties...

...drumroll...Collapse )
