    There are a few fandom websites I’m on where there’s a thread for writing prompts. I’ll explain how it works before asking if anyone would want to see that, but I thought it would be interesting to add one here.


    Basically, one person starts a thread in which they create a writing prompt. There’s a deadline for finishing a short story on said prompt, and afterwards, the person who started the prompt gives constructive/complimentary feedback to each of the entries. Afterwards, the person picks the winner. Whoever the winner is, they pick the next prompt.
    I’m not sure how many people on here are writers like myself, rather than making episodes or something. By the way, I’m absolutely not here to hate on episode-based stories. I enjoy them, and I’m probably going to do one myself. However, if this ever happens, I think it would work out best if the stories were written rather than made in episode... format?
    Okay, you can vote now.

    I'd like to take part in this since I find it difficult to write without inspiration and this may provide the inspirational spark to light my fanfiction fire

    I find something like this to be really interesting! Though, I'm not exactly the best at writing, lol.

    okay wow that’s lot of replies in a short period of time, hOLY


    I’m glad to know that you guys find the idea interesting! It’s not my idea directly, I have no idea where it originates, but I’d like to introduce it to the site. If I can get a couple more people, I’d be happy to start it.

    Ah, I’ll try and explain it best I can.
    A writing prompt is where you’re given an idea and you write a story based on it. You can create mini stories anywhere in the fanfiction section. This is basically a thread to give other people ideas for stories, but just making it a little more interactive. One person provides a prompt, then people write a mini story based on it within a certain period of time. The person who provided the prompt will then choose a winner for the prompt. The winner will pick the next prompt for people, and so on.

    Count me as interested but it's going to depend on time. How long are we looking at between prompt and deadline? Word minimum/maximum?

    Prompt deadlines can range from 3 days to about a week. Word count doesn’t matter too much, just write like at least a couple paragraphs. Do you want me to add you to the pinglist?

    The prompt is on the other thread if you’re looking for one.
