 (I hope jazzygirl918 doesn't mind if I just go ahead and pick the challenge prompt, seeing as we are co-moderators).

Challenge Prompt:
*the prompts are very loose: all we ask is that the work use these words or somehow be inspired by them*

Please use this form when you submit your work:
Word Count:
Special Thanks:

Please go to the the profile for more rules and guidelines.  (Seeing as most of us are "old members," we'll remember, but for newcomers to the community and for a brush up on the rules, please check them out...).  There you will find the answers to any questions; if there is a question you want to ask, feel free to let the mods know and we'll get back to you.

The challenge shall end at 11:59 CST August 7th.  August 8th, a voting post will be created and locked so no one can see who is voting for who.  After votes are in (voting period will be determined depending on how many stories are entered), banners will be made and posted.  

Everyone who submits will get a banner.

Post all work for the challenge directly to the community itself, not to this post.  Stories will be in a catche until the deadline, when the moderators will release the works for review and voting.  Thanks!

Happy Writing!

Sorry to be a pain in the first challenge. But do you think the writing deadline can be extended to Friday instead? I had a really busy weekend (excuse I know) and I just came up with my plot now and I fear it won't be written in time for Thursday.
Would anyone mind if the writings were due Friday instead?

I'll give you all a cookie!

I wouldn't have a problem with this. Does anyone else have one?

No worries about the prompts - I don't mind at all. =)

How did the mods submit their entries? I don't think we can lock them - the only options are "public" and "members only".

Thanks for being so patient; I was on vacation and came back to find no internet at home!

We post our entries when we approve the submissions from other community members because you're right, we can't lock them.

Whenever you would like, close the challenge and post the stories. I would personally love to postpone the challenge and extend the deadline to Tuesday, or something, because it would be great to get more submissions, but it is up to you!
