I'm currently doing 100 Themes. myself. I hope you didn't think I was implying you purposely limited things. I was just stating possible views that may be or have been a factor.

I like the poll idea. I was just suggesting a alternative option. I've noticed lots of things waning like games. threads ect.

Sometimes doing things differently brings back interest.

Well I can't say I'll always be interested in writing. But I can say I'd be up to do some. As it's one of my things. like art and martial Arts. Anyway ty for responding. And let me know if it does come back.

Haing less regular small contests seems like a cool idea, as im sure the audience of people with enough time to read so much so often is small. I wonder if there could be a bookclub mashup somewhere in the idea soup?

On a personal note, no idea if I'd enter, but 100% in support of any community engagement projects *waves a littleflag*

I'm all about writing very short fiction. If the site runs a 500-3000 word story event over the summer, I'll submit something, barring unforeseen calamity.

I'm definitely planning a summer competition, crowmadillo—welcome! It's good to see a new face around here. I'm finishing an announcement that will include a link to this thread, so hopefully we'll see more folks showing up to explore!

If you're new here, welcome! This is a general conversation thread for the Short Story Competition, which was retired until now. If the summer challenge goes well, we'll see about getting more competitions going. I'm thinking one every three months or so would be my sweet spot.

The Summer Challenge will be posted June 1st!

Hi Aethera,

A summer writing contest sounds awesome! I have a question which you may or may not be able to answer yet. Can the fiction, I assume it’s fiction you’re looking for, be an original story that looks at an aspect of already written work? As a few examples, can one write about Conan’s unknown cousin and how she stole the Rod of Ruling from an evil king or the actions of one of Doriath’s warriors as he bravely defends her borders after the Nirnaeth Arnoediad? This allows one to use an already established setting for one’s original fiction. If that is even what you are looking for this year.
