Every day this week, from today, August 14th, through Monday, August 21st, we will post links to three songs. Write a fic based on one of those songs. You may write three fics every day, if all three songs catch your fancy or spark something. One to 500 words will get you one novelty bead, and so on for each additional 500 words. There may also be special bonus novelty beads for completing all three fics each day and for completing all fics.

Stories are due twenty-four hours after the songs are posted.

Today's songs:

Main Stage: Don't Let Me Fall, Lenka
Second Stage: Brandy Alexander, Feist
Village Stage: August, Rilo Kiley

Our annual Dead Time prompts and a fan favorite event!

-Dead-Time meaning no more than one hour can be spent on any stories produced (it's like flash fiction that way).

-And you must use a prompt before pulling a new one, although you can mulligan if nothing comes to you in a day.

-Stories to run in the comm at 1 novelty bead per post. You can pull as many as you want through the event. The posting limit will be raised to seven stories per day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

And as always, prompts are surreal finds from around tumblr. GET READY WRITERS YOUR MOMENT OF GLORY APPROACHES.

COMMENT FOR PROMPTS.

ETA: Think I got that fixed. Think...

Hey guys! Remember the summer challenge? Of course you do. Well, Short Films, SWL's annual dead-time prompts draw, is going to begin tomorrow probably pretty late at night, and continue all the way through Sunday night at midnight.

I would also like to announce that Lilith Faire, which was also TBA, will be held August 13th through August 20th. I look forward to seeing all your entries!

Don't forget to keep on writing for all the other summer challenges!

Welcome to our first challenge of the summer film festival! This is Red Carpet.

Every day this week, I or another mod will post a picture of an outfit. Write a story inspired somehow by that outfit. Interpret 'inspired' however you like. You have seven days to post a story from the time the outfit is posted-- so, you can post a story inspired by today's outfit anytime until Monday, June 19th. Finally, for each story you post, receive one novelty bead per 500 words or fraction thereof.

Everybody ready? Here we go!

Good afternoon, writers! Today, June 8th, ends Amnesty Week for Dada, but more importantly, it begins a brand new challenge: our summer Film Festival.

Special colors )

Also, members should feel free to make and post their own challenges! The mods will fulfill any novelty bead winnings as long as the challenges are film-based; otherwise, you're on your own for rewards.

Any questions? Ask us here!

PILGRIMS!

...oh, come on, USian members, surely at some point in school you did the rhyme? April showers bring May flowers, and May flowers bring... pilgrims? Surely?

No?

Oh, well, I'm the mod and I do what I want.

This June, post something in a historical AU. Receive a novelty bead per 500 words or fraction thereof. I look forward to see what you come up with!


Post here to receive your novelty beads from May Flowers, or with any other questions.

Dada is officially over as of June 1st, which means Amnesty Week has begun! Post anything for any of the challenges this spring and receive the appropriate novelty beads.

Post here to let us know how you did on your challenge! Meeting your goal gets you twenty novelty beads. Exceeding it by one-half or one-third (whichever is easier to calculate, as heat makes mods lazy) will get you another five novelty beads per half or third. Remember you have until June 7th to complete your challenge, if you haven't done it already.

Watch this space for our summer challenge!

Hey guys!

One of our members has suggested an excellent Style idea that we would really like to put into practice! However, we the mods are having some difficulties coming up with another Style to keep things even. So we are now soliciting ideas for new Supplies and Styles! Leave your suggestions in this post.

Thank you in advance!
