One-Shotober 2014 32 members · 97 stories

It's that time again, folks! Time for us to collectively spam the crap out of the front page with one-shots! The group from last year is a little hard to manage, so I decided to take it upon myself to create a group for those that wish to participate this year.

What is One-Shotober? Why, I'm glad you asked. It's a month long challenge for writers to publish a story for every day of October, amounting to 31 in total.

Some Basic Rules:
-The stories can be about anything, granted that it's a oneshot.
-You can release as many stories as you want. You're not limited to ONLY one every day.
-Stories have to be published in the month of October. You can however, publish earlier, if you know you will be missing some opportunities to write. E.g. family vacation.
-This is a challenge not a competition. So have fun!

That's all I've got for now. Happy writing!

*Make sure to let me know if you are gonna attempt the challenge so that I can make a folder for you to put your stories in!*

Garbo802 is going to help me keep this group organized. Contact him if you have any questions. You can contact me too, but he's an option.

I think I'm a bit late for this.

378333 Okay, I didn't think so, but I wanted to make sure.:twilightsmile:

Naw, you're not even close to breaking the rules.

378330 Oh, well you said I didn't break the rules right?:twilightblush:

I'm co-running this now. ExhaustedBrony needed some help.

378328 What do you mean........??????:rainbowhuh::rainbowderp:

Well, the problem will be solved shortly.

378279 I didn't think you were mad. I just thought I might've been rude in my original post.

Sorry for the same thing

378266 Oh, okay. Sorry if it sounded like I was mad at you. :twilightblush:

I was talking about the guy with 25 some-odd stories that go back to August. You didn't break any rules, and I would've done the same if I published some beforehand. But the other guy just dumped in all his stories from the last month. Not cool.

378131 The rules allow stories released September 20 through the end of October.

Dear People Who Can't Read:
If your story got released in September, it doesn't count. It's called oneshotober for a reason. Go get some glasses :ajbemused:

-This is a challenge not a competition

That doesn't mean I won't win.

I am doing the challenge...I'm just keeping them all in one place so as not to clutter my stories list or the site. RainbowBob was I think the first to suggest doing it in this fashion. I'm gonna have 31 chapters with a different story that I'll be introducing with an author's note at the top of each one. Also I don't have to find cover art for each one this way. :twilightblush:

377677 That doesn't sound like a one-shot to me...:applejackunsure:
Are you taking part in the challenge or are you going to be just writing stuff during this month and not worry about the challenge?

Would you add an "Anthologies" folder for those of us submitting one story and just updating it with a new chapter every day?
