We have one goal and one goal only: one new prompt, posted every single day.
They'll be simple, they'll be vague, they might even be absolutely ridiculous. But whatever gets the creative juices flowing, that is what we hope to deliver!
How will this work, more exactly? Easy. I'll start a new thread (so don't disable them notifs, yo) with the prompt and likely a suggested word goal and/or limit. These are merely for those who like having a specific goal to go with an idea; don't take them too seriously, or too literally--if you can answer a prompt in ten words, do so. The choice is yours. Take the idea and run with it however you may. For prompts you reply with 2000 words or less, feel free to respond in the thread with your entry. And go ahead and post them to the site as well! Everyday I'll post a new thread with a new prompt. I've got a big stash of 'em, so don't worry about me running out anytime soon. Still, we would love your suggestions, so shoot those on over to us!
Remember: the purpose of these prompts is simply to help those in need (or even if you don't need it!) by jump starting the creative impulse. These are not contests. These are not being done in the goal of having a collection of responses on FiMFiction. This is simply a tool I am putting up to better assist my fellow authors.
We have just a few rules:
1. Don't start any new threads without permission from Peregrine Caged. Threads are entirely reserved for prompts and prompts alone.
2. Yes, you may totally post your response to a prompt in the thread itself and on your own profile--in fact, we encourage this!
3. Got a prompt? PM it to us or drop it off in our suggestion thread (stickied at the top)! You will be credited for your suggestion.
4. Just because a prompt has passed doesn't mean you can't take it. We'll be leaving all the prompts up, so take a gander. Good inspiration never really dies.
5. Less a rule and more a humble request; if we inspired you to write something, give us a shout out! Spread the word--this is a tool we want to offer all writers, and word of mouth/fingertips is the best advertising. If you publish it on the site, a nifty link in your description would be much appreciated.
