July Topic/Sign Up
Hello, from now on I will be leading this club. As before, we'll do the one month writing, one month discussing, one month off. It's a little early, but the writing month coming up will be July.
I would also like to implement several rules or rather guidelines within this club, as follows:
As before, you may write a poem or short story. Songfics or series are unsuitable for this project.
Your story must be no more than 5,000 words. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but this is supposed to be a club of short stories so you can finish them and we can discuss them with ease.
In discussion, everyone must offer a contribution. Preferably this must be at least somewhat contributive and insightful towards the work, even if short. Remember, this is a club dedicated to the improvement of our writing on the wiki.
On a similar vein, all comment during discussion must be nice. It may be a critique, but don't be unnecissarily harsh or mean. We are all more likely to improve through nice comments and suggestions of improvement.
Also, don't worry about not having time or it not being good or any of the mild anxieties often put forward in these things. It doesn't matter if you present 600 word that you wrote quickly in an afternoon. As I say, this project is about improvement and forwarding your ability, as well as increasing confidence. Don't present your story with 'sorry it's not very good' but with a 'here's my story for this month!' And don't forget, if you enjoy any of the prompts you can write a short story for this, then in your own time pick up the idea and run.
So, with all of that in mind, here is the prompt for the month of July:
The North Pole, 50 years in the future
So that's it. Please leave a comment to join, and have fun!
