Thank you to all those who took part in my small survey and helped me to decide which minor change to make to the Short Affair Challenge.
From now on (including stories due today), you can chose to use one of the prompt words, or to use both in your story (not forgetting the colour element). Don't forget to say which combination of prompts you are using.
The prompts and rules, for Short Affair stories due on May 21st, can all be found down below the cut. For stories due today, simply follow this link for the prompts.
Remember, Section VII is a Gen site, but stories which are Het, Long-term Romance or AU can be posted in mfu_map_room.
Posting directly to Section VII is still fine but, if you wish, you can post your story elsewhere and provide a link. Please say where the link leads as a lot of people are unwilling to go to certain sites. Don't forget, Section VII and the Map Room are both available on Dreamwidth, for those of you who can figure it out (Just let us know if you posted there).
-Prompt Word 1 - Wheel
-Prompt Word 2 – Trouble
-Prompt Colour – Copper
-Due Date – 21st May 2018
-Your story can be built around one or both of the prompt words plus the colour. I.E.- Word 1/Colour, Word 2/Colour, or Word 1/Word 2/Colour.
-Word Count - must be between 300 and 1000.
-All stories should be headed with ‘Short Affair’ Challenge, the due date and your title.
-Please state at the top of your post which prompt combination you are using.
-Tags - please use short_affair, gen or gen-mature.
-Section VII is a Gen community, so stories should be appropriate, i.e. nothing explicit or overly-graphic. However, there is the Gen-Mature tag for anything containing violence, torture or mild Het. The Map Room should be used for Het stories, but again, nothing overly graphic.
-Also, as a courtesy to others, please use the LJ Cut, so as not to take up all the room on someone’s feed. Remember, Section VII is a Gen site, but stories which are Het, Long-term Romance or AU can be posted in mfu_map_room.
