Please refrain from saying anything that might compromise your anonymity. Doing so is grounds for disqualification. It's recommended you do dummy reviews of your own stories should it otherwise be easy to deduce which you wrote.

It begins. :rainbowderp:

Huh, weird. Someone submitted a prompt I submitted a bunch of WOs again: "A Simple Mistake."

I mean, it's a common enough phrase, but still. Deja Vu.

...and I just realised my prompt (Like the World Is Ending) won last time. :rainbowhuh: I feel sort of obligated to read a few of the entries, now.
For anyone curious, it's a line from "Knights of Shame", by Awolnation.

Anyway, I oughta have time to participate this time 'round. Let's go!

Prompt submitted~

Looking forward to this. But gotta get some stuff finished first. Been a while since I published a story on FIMFiction. Shame on me.

Yee-haw. Time to find out if FIM minific is easier to write than original minific. :rainbowdetermined2:

MiniFic = Mini prompt?

"Great as—"

Oops, reached the word count. Yeah, I know, I had to rush through it at the end.

Considering the shortest Prompt we've received is 2 characters, and that's a full prompt, I believe a mini prompt would be either "O" or "t".

Awesome. My first contest. Let's see what we can cook up.

I knew I should have submitted a nonbreaking space as my prompt.

You all have fun with this one; I think I'm out, unless the prompt bites me hard. I'll see about reviews, maybe...

I have a request. Minifics are my specialty, but I always forget, or miss the mini fic contests. When the prompt is chosen can you all flood my inbox with reminders please? Or a text at (714) 496-3119. I want to compete with you guys!

When did it get settled these would be every 6 weeks by the way? That discussion just seemed to die off, and I admit I'm still grumpy on it.

Argh, will miss this one (again):fluttershbad:

Best of luck to all of you anyway.

4926210 That'll work too. ;)

Kritten

I've thought of a new tactic: begin writing a day before receiving the prompt. That way, I can stay ahead of the game!

There is absolutely no conceivable way that this could go wrong.

C'mon, guys! At least stay consistent with your numbering schemes!

Also, a tie for the shortest prompt? What?

I'm sorry. But I'm confused. This is a contest for stories that aren't stories? Shorts I guess?

This is a contest for My Little Pony minifics, which are MLP stories between 400 and 750 words. The prompt will be released in two days, at which point you can begin writing. The writing period goes on for a day.

4926528 I have an issue with that because just a simple introduction for me is about that long. That's like a one scene shot. Hm. I was thinking about it but no thanks. Thanks for giving out that info.

Bugle

If minifics are not your thing, then perhaps you'll be more interested in the short story contests, which are 2K-8K. The next ones will be in about 3 weeks (General fiction, not MLP exclusive) and 6 weeks (MLP exclusive).

This will be my first contest. I submitted a prompt. I assume voting begins in 23 hours...

Bachiavellian

Not 100% sure if I'm gonna throw my hat into the ring for this one. I have to admit that my interest in the Writeoff (and writing in general) has been on a bit of a decline as of late. I guess I'll wait and see if the prompt sparks anything for me.

4926637
Yep! After that, the winning prompt will be revealed, and then we'll have 24 hours to put together a minific. Or multiple entries, if that's your thing. Glad to have you with us. Good luck, and I hope you have fun!

That is actually surprisingly funny and I have no idea why.

Oh, hey, we have a new candidate for shortest prompt ever submitted!

4926574 Having done both a "short" and a "mini" now, I kinda wish there was something in between, like 1K-5K. So you could at least turn around and publish it on FimFiction without having to stretch it longer, but you're also not struggling to hit 2K if the idea doesn't quite get you that far.

This is probably neither a major problem nor the first time such a thing has been suggested, but still.

I like that one. Though I think I still have a good chance of winning this prompt vote. I really hope I do.

I am setting a goal in this writeoff to do better than in the last writeoff. It should be a very easy goal to reach.

Does Anyone know where Bradel has gone? We haven't seen him for ages.

Okay, maybe I'm too stupid, but how does one vote on which prompt(s?) we'd prefer?

Thanks!

First, you wait for eight hours. Then you go to this page. Then you check the boxes next to all of the prompts you like.

In other random news, today I discovered that you can sort the prompts alphabetically, if you click them enough.

So what're we going to do when Ot actually wins for once?

Calipony

Vote cast.
Must confess wasn't thrilled by the smorgasbord this time. Nothing really outstanding (IMHO).
