I've been trying to increase my progress rate on my own novels as well, so count me in! cheers Are we allowed to start now, or just finish before the end of May?

Maybe I'll prepare now and do the writing in May. ^_^ That should work better, yeah. Plus it gives us April to do some ruppin' (that's RPing. xD).

OH! Do we post our work here? Or do we just say we've done it (honestly)? Plagiarists are generally caught and executed, Razz, so we probably needn't worry about that very much. *shrug* What was your thought on that?

Start your story off with a bang! Kill off a major/semi-major character within the first three chapters. [15 pts.]
Describe your character, location and basics of the world-type in the first sentence [50 pts.] or first two sentences [25 pts.]
Ex. from Octavia Butler's Wild Seed: "Doro discovered the woman by accident when he went to see what was left of one of his seed villages." Doro, a village, and likely a fantasy setting.

From Make A Scene by Jordan E. Rosenfeld
Hatch your plot in the form of your significant situation. [10 pts.]
Introduce your protagonist and provide a brief glance into his/her inner or outer struggles. [10 pts.]
Introduce a significant situation that challenges your protagonist's status quo. [10 pts.]
Provide a catalyst with whom the protagonist can interact. [10 pts.]

None of these apply because I'm beyond the first chapter already. I'm doing the word count stuff.

I'm thinking about joining. It depends if I've gotten far enough in my preparation work to start writing by then, and May will be full of tests and assignments and stuff. Definitely thinking about it though.

So at the end of May, just add the points and let you know? I'd be happy to email you a word doc with proof or something.

And thanks for putting this up by the way, I'm sure a lot of us are in need of some motivation.

You could always put it up in the Written Works part of FOG. If Silvone says the next challenge is going to be about editing, it might help to get some feedback, too.

That is a good idea, Tartra Smile Just remember FOG's privacy policy:

I'm not sure how written works comes into play here. You may want to contact moderators/administrator to clarify. And always remember, anything you put up on the internet is at risk.

Count me in! I know I'm a newbie and fairly young, maybe not a great writer as a few of you other guys, but I'll try and hang in there. I'd love to make some buddies along the way too!

Sounds like a nice idea, Silvone. I'm in by the way. I'll just say otherwise if I notice I'm not ready. Smile

I'm in like a dirty shoe. Whatever that means. I already have the most basic stuff for my story down, but I will hold off until May. It's not typed anyways. I'll make a post in the writing section when I start and update is 500 word chunks.

One question. How to we fulfill this part of the challenge?

Hatch your plot in the form of your significant situation.

I think my story accomplishes that. It's kinda of a thing that varies from person to person, what will grab their interest. I suppose you can be the judge when the story goes online.

I think it will benefit me as a writer if other people can comment.

EDIT: Oooh. Just a random idea. Maybe if everyone who submits a story can be assigned a reading buddy, that way everyone won't feel obligated to review everyone else work, and people still get feed back.

Not a bad idea, since if we all submit stuff for critiques it might tax our writing time to read it all. xD
