    Public Service Announcement
    I know that this is a writing comm but I feel that this entry is appropriate. The woman that is the subject of both the Foundation and the concert was a teacher. And that, I feel, makes it a suitable item for this comm.

    Challenge #6 - It was Poetic Justice
    Challenge # 6: It was poetic justice.
    Maximum word count: 500 words
    Next challenge: February 3rd, 2009

    Posting rules:

    - Title of your piece
    - Submitted by (if you're posting from a fic journal, for instance, instead of your personal journal)
    - Submitted for which challenge
    - Notes (in which you tell us anything we need to know.) Remember however, that even if your piece contains characters you work with regularly, your submission for this community must be able to stand alone.
    - Rating: PG (all audiences, nothing offensive here), R (adult content), XXX (graphic sex, pwp, S&M, hardcore stuff). Please tell us why you rated it as you did so people can make informed choices about whether they’d like to read it (ie. violence, bad language, sex, purple elephants, etc). The reason is really more important than the rating itself, as I want to keep this a reader-friendly community.
    - Let us know if (and where) we can read more of your work, related or otherwise.

    Challenge #5: "But what happens when you come to the beginning again?"
    I have been remiss in the care of this community and one of my resolutions is to bring it back to life. To that end, let's have the first challenge of the new year.

    Challenge #5: "But what happens when you come to the beginning again?" from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
    Maximum word count: 500 words
    Next challenge: January 26th, 2009

    Challenge # 4
    Apparently I cannot tell when it is Thursday. Either that, or I have managed to lose days while working on Christmas gifts. And because I am not good with changing the challenge on Thursday, we are switching the day to Monday. Hopefully, I will get my act together and remember to do it next week. :]

    This week's challenge...

    Choose one of the following lines.

    "I'm cute, I'm cute."

    "Have you been naughty or nice?"

    "You Can Never Find an Elf When You Need One"

    "I didn’t know it was such a bad little tree."

    "Only one thing in the world could’ve dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window."

    “God bless us, everyone”

    This challenge will be a two-week challenge because I am sure that I will be knee-deep in making last minute presents next Monday. This means if you wish to do more than one challenge - either two of this week's or this week's and a past week, go for it.

    Happy Holidays to everyone!

    Challenge #3
    First a question. As we haven't had many posts each week, I am thinking of starting a few contest ideas. Whether they are implemented or not will be up to you. I would like to have a weekly contest, a monthly contest and a quarterly contest. I am not sure as to what the contest will be so that is where you all come in. Give me some ideas of what you would like the contests to be. Best use of the challenge, shortest fic, exactly 500 words, etc. I do know that one of the quarterly contests would be for the person who has completed the most challenges.

    I am also thinking of adding a 1000 word maximum monthly challenge.

    Drop me a line in the comments and let me know what you think. Even if you haven't yet had a chance to participate in a challenge, let me know if you have any ideas.

    Now, onto the challenge.

    There have been no entries for the last challenge so I'm going to extend that one another week and I'll also put up a new one. This means that you can do either #2 or #3 or both.

    This week's challenge:

    "I been there before."

    Because this line is taken from a classic and is not in modern English, liberty may be taken to make it grammatically correct. Examples: "I have been there before", "I was there before", etc.

    This is a last line to a classic novel. Bonus cookie for anyone who knows the book and author.

    Challenge #3 due by December 12th
    Challenge #4 will be posted on December 13th.

    Challenge # 2
    Before we get to the challenge I'd like to say thank you to everyone who played last week. Well done everyone.

    I also need to make a clarification in regard to the rules. A few of you misunderstood how the line was to be used. The line given should be used exactly as written. Do not add to it or change it in any way. And it must be used as the first line.

    Now onto the challenge. This line is the first-line of a classic book.

    It was love at first sight.

    Cookies to anyone who knows the book and author.

    All entries need to be in by/on November 7th.
    New challenge will be posted November 8th.

    I haven't written much before, so I'm hoping that participating in a challenge community like this will help me out with my writing. (This is only the third bit of fiction, and first bit of original fiction, I've ever written.) So if you see any grammar/spelling/formatting mistakes, please let me know. :)
