So this will be Project Phoenix's first writing challenge. There will be two prompts: a picture and a word prompt. You can write a story for either or both prompts. If you do write it, post it on FF.Net and provide the following in the comments:
  • Author name
  • Story name
  • Link to story
  • What challenge it answers
These challenges are by no means mandatory. If you're inspired, write it! :) I'll read each and every entry and review it. Once all the nominees are in, I'll select a Runner Up and a Winner for each prompt. Here's what you get if you win:
  • A place in the "Project Phoenix" community
  • A review from moi
  • A chance to be put on the Bucket List
  • More exposure to the fandom
As you can see, it isn't much. I hope to change that as FM grows, but we'll see. Here are the tentative dates:
  • November 5, 2012: Contest begins for both prompts
  • December 22, 2012: Contest ends for both prompts
  • December 25, 2012: Winners are announced

Author Name: the fox that breaks our trust
Story Title: crows call the morning
Prompt/s: Winter Woes/Ruined Cemetery
Comments: I tried to incorporate both a little different than one would expect. Um, a more subtle approach to the first prompt and I used the second as a metaphor.
