I just want to pop in here and say I am really enjoying the prompts so far! They are diverse and up until now they have given me great ideas :3 I'm looking forwards to the rest of them. But so far: awesome list!

    • Agreed! I've been able to easily come up with ideas for each. I really just love this time of year.

I am SO glad to hear it!! I worry the temeritea one may have been a little too much of a curveball but I couldn’t resist; I thought it was freaking hilarious and brilliant, very JK Rowling style play on ‘temerity’.

The themes are being finalized as a surprise!!

Also bless Lost and Kami for posting them - we are trying to make it more smooth and consistent with what time they are posted, as well as making it a bit earlier for non-Americans to have more daytime to write!

So, uh, I am a bit lost as to how today's prompt is related to the theme. Is there a hidden meaning behind it? Because to me, "a bus seat" doesn't really feel like freedom or pride. So I am feeling as if I am missing something ^^ and a google search didnt really give me anything relevant except for... well, bus seats.

    • Rosa Parks and the bus seat is likely the reference!

Gamora is correct! But of course people are more than welcome to write whatever they wish; your writing doesn’t have to be themed. Sorry we didn’t make the reference more clear!

Ah, okay! Thanks for the clarification!

Yes, I will probably be writing something completely different as the reference, but I was just curious about what I was missing ^^

    • Hi all,

      Added a poll about the first theme for the 100 Days of Summer!
      Based on a few conversations I've had with people, figured I'd throw a poll up to see what everyone thinks!

      I really love 100 Days of Summer and even though I'm a bit behind, I'm hoping to get caught up soon.

I'm actually quite fond of the themes. OFC, it might be because I know what they're going to be, but I overall like that the themes are smaller and not "one theme for the whole event". They're creative and the prompts are fitting; they are chosen in a way that makes both those, who like writing happier/sappier pieces and those, who are more from the angst/sadness category, happy and with enough ideas what to write, so that's a big plus in my book. cx

Also, just a small heads up! Both of the people who are responsible for updating these prompts are going through some busy things IRL (Lost's really sick and wasn't feeling well today, and I'm sitting through my last exams which mean a lot to me), so the prompts might be late for ~2 hours if either of us can't jump on AS to update. But even if they're late, the Americans will definitely have a lot of time to write and the Europeans should have more than half of the day, too.

Lmao, sorry for the inconvenience, but June is out there to murder every single college student. Hope ya'll are enjoying the prompts so far! ♥
