Don't worry we have some cheerful ones coming up! Unlike last year they are not Summer based but at the end of the event we will offer up polls on whether you'd like a certain theme throughout the whole event, less days, ect.

Jazzy gave me a tip where you can use the phrase 'looking like a corpse.' Like someone being really tired. Perhaps you can work with that? Because I am going to use that as well. Bless Jazzy for that epiphany.

But I do hope the prompts do get lighter again because otherwise it's no fun anymore. Summer is supposed to be happy times. Not armageddons, dungeons, napalm and corpses. Then again I do know the prompts are set so we just have to suck it up cx
Life is pretty busy! Please give me some time to get back to you. I promise I will reply asap.

They were set up as both competition and challenge to writers participating instead of a consistent and predictable theme. We appreciate any and all feedback though and next year might be entirely different c:

    • Ou that's a good idea jazzy!! Thank you! Now I don't need to write depressing things! I'm glad more lighter topics are coming. I get a challenge, but I don't want to write negatively all the time haha.

      Also not sure if it was on purpose or not, but the title on the 100 days of summer thread is with the letter o instead of 0's and its bugging me xD It's 1oo instead of 100.

The first thing I thought of with corpse was a shell - like losing a part of your personality or your former self being metaphorically "dead" after going through something heartbreaking or traumatic. It's still kind of a dark theme and I really like Jazzy's idea, but it could be a decent way for some creative character development.

I'm so far behind with prompts. I have a lot of muse to write but college is keeping me really busy. I'm hoping to have Friday or Saturday free enough to where I can get caught back up with prompts.

    • I think you may all be thinking a little too literally! Get creative. Branch out and twist the prompts to your liking. The themes are only as dark as you make them. ^-^
      If you need help thinking out of the box, I can gladly start listing brighter ideas for you all. I've seen multiple ways to go about every prompt.

    • I'm stuck on Birth and Embassy, Mer, can you help with those ones? The others I think I have ideas for, just not those ones!

    • Ideas for birth: A new day, babies, New years, Dawn, birthdays, people separated at birth, the start of a new universe. Birth can honestly symbolize anything new happening or coming along. A cool idea without just key words I've been giving could be something like people being cast out into space just as the world is dying... and far away from their ship they can watch the world explode... and birth something new. Something better. (Or worse). Something less obvious... have a character mistake someone as pregnant and get slapped. Or have a play on words and use it as 'berth' XD
      Ideas for embassy: An embassy is usually foreign representatives. This would be amazing for gang plots. The Russian embassy has rolled into the city and is causing some trouble for you guys. Or you can think of it as a task/duty or an agency. This one may be less flexible but if you aren't too keen about anything mentioned above, have the news playing in the background while your characters are doing whatever and you'll be fine. Hell. Just take inspiration from the word. You don't have to include it in your prompt.

    • Interesting. Thanks Mer! I'll use one of those ideas for Birth for sure. Embassy is after 50 so thankfully I don't need to stress about it.

      I've decided I'm tapping out at 50, then from there will only do the ones I want. It's become a chore now and it's ruining my muse for it altogether. Feel bad for not pulling through all the way, but I'm not having fun anymore and I'd rather enjoy it.
