I will be posting a Micro Challenge once a week.  These are just for fun -- no voting involved. Write and post as many as you like!

CHALLENGE 1: "Welcome Back!"

Use the phrase "Welcome Back!" to inspire your work.

(Thank you capt_facepalm for the idea, and for #vaguechallengeisvague)

Hello people who still faithfully follow great_tales!

We haven't had a post since October of last year, and that is something I am determined to change.  So we are beginning a Ficlet Exchange!  I know we've all enjoyed the December Drabble exchanges of the past, so I hope a Summer Ficlet Exchange will be just as fun!

For those who do not remember our Drabble Exchange, here is the general overview:

You sign up to write and to receive a story of between 100 and 250 words, I pair you up according to fandom, you write a story and send it to me, and I post them anonymously over a week or so.  Then we get to play "guess whose story" until the a big reveal.

Of course, the most important part of a story exchange is the participants, so please sign up, and get your friends to join, too! I will be posting micro challenges over the next two months for anyone who wants to get creative writing juices flowing, and hope to resume normal monthly challenges beginning in September.

If you plan to participate, I only need a little bit of information from each of you:

  1. Name

  2. Fandoms you’re willing to write for

  3. Fandoms you’d like to receive

  4. Two or Three prompts for your writer (just suggestions -- writer is not required to use them)

  5. Anything else you need to tell you writer

This is open to anyone, so tell all your friends!  Remember also that you're not limited to fandoms frequently written on this comm, or even fandoms we have a tag for.  In the past, there have been new fandoms represented in exchanges.  I'll be posting a banner to make advertising simple in a minute or two.  Please bear in mind, though, that this is a low-rating gen-het only comm.  The comm rules apply to this exchange just as much as to anything else.  Thank you!

Comm Rules
