    • Pardon the double post, just trying to get this going.

      I'm pretty stuck muse wise for these prompts. I was pretty good at keeping up but I'm so far behind again ugh. Getting to 100 is going to be a pain in the ass, it's such a task.

Pfft, I feel you. These prompts feel so limited somehow. And they don't really feel like 100 DoS but more like 100 Days of Randomness lmao. I miss the summery vibe. I feel like all I am writing about is violence, but probably that is just my interpretation of the prompts cx

Funnily enough, I am managing to keep up despite being on holiday. I have just enough spare time a day to write a prompt or two c:

    • I was actually super surprised by how dark some of these all are. The Napalm one like holy shit. Explain to me how I'm supposed to think light of that? I'm probably gonna save that one for the last day because I have zero desire to write about a Napalm strike. It does not sound summery at all lmao. The line itself had me laughing though oh my fuck.

      I agree as well. Last year it was all summer related, but this year it is quite random. I've been successful thus far, but it's becoming just a task for me at this point I don't know how much longer I'm gonna last. I am still determined, but we shall see. I don't want to tap out at 50, but I just might.

To be quite honest, I really prefer how things were last year. But, staff noticed that there seemed to be some complaint about the prompts being too summery last time and we thought we'd mix it up this year :) I can see how many of the prompts seem to be dark, but they can easily be made into something cute and fluffy. Maybe a mix of angst and fluff. A majority, if not all, of mine have turned out that way for the most part xD I can see how they're still on the darker side though >.<

I still hope everyone can enjoy the prompts though >.<
rough patch. trying to catch up with prompts first, then replies. sorry for the wait.

replies: walker, savannah, omnom, song, algo, irish, cider, important, memory,

finished & in drafts phoenix, ghost, snow, josh, algo, mags, melonous, andromeda, cider, algo, shai

    • I'm blessed we can actually write prose and poetry. Otherwise that Napalm one wouldn't have gotten done, along with a few others. I'm getting caught up though! Finally!

      I have day 42 to do, once I get a good enough idea for this road trip thing. Then 46-48. I'm debating stopping at 50, but I also really want to make it to 100 just to say I did it. But at the same time, I'm already wayyyy ahead of where I was last year LOL. I don't know, but I'll certainly try!

Yo guys can anyone give me ideas for todays prompt? I really want my prompts to become lighter instead of heavier but I really feel like today's (corpse) can only be about death/murder/violence. I'm trying to look at it from different angles but i'd like some different inputs as well.

No one said it had to be a human corpse. If you want something lighter than a pet, neighbour, friend or family death it coukd be a random wild animal death encountered after the fact. A couple of real life instances spring to mind including two times large birds have been electrocuted on wires (a young crow, and very lost wetland bird). There was also a incident outside a local high school where a large buck decided to lay down and die on the path to the school. It took more than a week before enough equipment and people could be organized to remove him.

I hope this was more helpful than depressing .

.. I'm so, so far behind ..

I don't mean to be a grouchy person, but all of these seemingly dark themes are really killing my muse for these prompts.

@Gren, thanks for the input! I see the point of it so I will think about it.

@Jazzy, I think you're not the only one feeling like that cx My muse is dying as well. I am praying for some summery prompts to appear but I don't have my hopes up because I feel like these topics will continue cx I wish there was some variation. I mean, I'm okay with some serious topics but... Napalm and corpse? Those are really restrictive and basically an one way street.
But I am still hoping we will get summery prompts too cx Or prompts based on emotions or something that'd be cool too unless it is grief lmao.

    • I'm with Deer and Jazzy. The prompts started off alright, but it's getting darker and darker. The last thing I want to write about during a summer event is a corpse. There's no way around that honestly. Unless you write something extremely depressive, which too is dark. I really really really don't want to write about corpse but I want to do all the prompts so I kind of have no choice which kinda sucks. I had muse to catch up on the prompts today but that's shot in the foot now lmao
