I'll be participating for the first time this year. These prompts all look good to me as well. No suggestions for improvement. Mar/Apr is an especially creative idea, both the regular option and the alternative option. The summer prompt exchange will be a lot of fun as well, methinks.

Can prompts be started before the listed start date?

I got ideas for some of the prompts  :lol

Most certainly! :)


Go ahead and check out my fanfictions, The Seven Hunters, Songs of the Hunters, and Mender's Tale

If work on prompts couldn't be started before the start date ala Nano or something I think I'll be in trouble, haha. :duckyhappy

I certainly won't have time to do them all (again, curse Reallife) but I'll certainly try to participate 8D

I will try to participate in every one of them. I am just bursting with ideas for the December prompt and next year is most certainly going to be interesting. :)littlefoot

I would like to participate in all of them as well, but we'll see how that goes. I still have to do a lot of brainstorming for ideas first.

Gee, you're both nuts! :P Not even I'm gonna go for everything. Most, but not all, and subject to good ol' time constraint... :o

Guess 2020 will be the year Sovereign finally gets really tight competition, though. :DD

^The thing about ideas is that they can come when you least expect them. I got a ton of ideas last night when I was about to head to sleep. They can come pretty much unexpectedly to you.

That is very true, Anagnos. In fact, that's why I keep pens and a pad of sticky notes on the end table next to my bed so I can jot down any midnight ideas.

And yeah, we might be nuts. But most writers are, don't you think? :P

Yeah, we're all nuts for committing to this challenge. We could have simply submitted a 1K post and called it day for submissions, but we just have to give it our all, didn't we? Overachievers syndrome... :P

^1k submission sounds like something that wouldn't exactly be easy to accomplish. The smallest amount of words I have managed to put down is about 6k words or so and even if my limit to the December prompt is 6-8k, there is a chance that it will go over that. After all, my August prompt was supposed to be 15k max. It ended up being 25k. :P

Well as a wise man once said, if something's worth doing, then it's worth doing well. :)

Maybe that should be a prompt in itself, to write a coherent story no longer than 1.5k. :P

Three, but two are incomplete... so, almost the same as the prior year. RIP productivity.

I never really had any incentive to review fanfictions, except for special or specific circumstances, but perhaps 2020 will be a different year for me. I can’t wait to see all the submissions, this will definitely be interesting to observe. :)

Also, why do I feel the urge to join in on at least one? The excitement of everyone here is rubbing off of me I guess. :lol

^Don’t take that as any confirmation, otherwise be disappointed if a submission from me never shows up.


I don't care if I have an award, because this signature will still change whenever I feel like it! :P

Well I won't hold my breath then, but if you do come up with a story, I'd love to see it. And keep in mind it doesn't need to be that long. 1,000 words is the minimum length to qualify as a prompt submission. Or else the story can be its own thing, unconnected to the prompts.
