How it works!  
Weekly Schedule

So here is how it will work.

  • Prompts/Challenges will be Issued on Friday at 10 AM! You have all day Friday to sign up to participate for that week. Sign ups will end on Saturday at 10 AM Eastern/Standard Time.

  • Drabble/art are due on Tuesday by 9 PM Eastern/Standard Time. This allows three days to complete your drabble or art.

    Note: If your drabble/art is done before Tuesday, you can start posting as soon as the sign up for the prompt closes.

  • A master post will be posted on Wednesday at 1 PM Eastern/Standard Time, and then on Friday, we will start all over again.

    Note: We would ask that you do not post your drabble's anywhere else until the master post of the drabble's has been posted.

Sound good? =D I hope so!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask the mods. We would love to help you out in anyway!

Is there a different sign-up form for artists?
cd_mods[personal profile] cd_mods on April 6th, 2012 12:44 am (UTC)

No, to sign up writer's and artist's would just have to comment on tomorrow post. We'll add participant as they comment.

The writers and artists have diffrent posting headers, which we just edited and posted.

Hope that answer your question, thank you for asking :)

If something needs to be added to the artist's header, please let us know..

Thanks, you answered the question.
[identity profile] inspired-being.livejournal.com on April 6th, 2012 04:25 pm (UTC)
It may be just me... but can someone please explain to me the purpose/reason for having sign-ups in this kind of community?
Secondly, what if you miss the sign-up period or a previous prompt gives some you inspiration after it's been done and dusted? Are you still allowed to post a piece for that prompt?
cd_mods[personal profile] cd_mods on April 6th, 2012 06:41 pm (UTC)
Because is a weekly prompt community we are trying to have everything as much organize as we can. Hence the sign up for each prompt. Example if you don't like this weeks prompt you don't have to sign up for it. But you love next one, then you sign up.

Each prompt will be open from Friday 10 am to Saturday 10 am. Regarding your questions, which is a good one thanks, for the moment is no, Once is closed no more sign ups for that prompt. But is something we can look into in the future when we been on for a while.

I hope that answer your questions. Don't hesistate to contact us again. :D

Okay, I can understand you wanting everything to be organised.
I know my muse doesn't work that fast half the time. Ah well, we'll see if something grabs me at some point.

We hope it does!

Actually I've kind of got the same question as the person above me?

Why the sign ups? I've been a member and mod of communities like this in past and I've never seen this before, mostly they were a new prompt on Sunday and anyone could fill it and then another new prompt on the next Sunday. Past prompts allowed filled. This just seems to create more work for the mods.

Not being critical because I think this is a great comm just curious.
cd_mods[personal profile] cd_mods on April 9th, 2012 01:07 am (UTC)

We did it to keep everything organize as much as we can. Hence the sign up for each prompt. While we know other drabbles communities don't have sign ups we wanted this one to be diffrent.

If itss something that later on the community wants, we would make a poll regarding the sign ups and opening old prompts. We still in the early stage of the community and beyond excited how things are looking so who knows what will happen.

Hope that answered your questions.

I love drabble comms and they are pretty self running when you get them going with good tags. :)

I was just curious of what looked like extra work.
cd_mods[personal profile] cd_mods on April 9th, 2012 01:19 am (UTC)
Drabble's are awesome but sometimes there are stories so good that leaves you wanting more, you know. Hense why we set the limit at 1000 words.

We are rebels against the _100 drabble comm :)

Thanks for getting involve and asking questions, this is your comm as ours :)

When we post up our fics, do we post them onto the community or can we have links to our livejournal pages instead? Thank you ^_^
cd_mods[personal profile] cd_mods on April 21st, 2012 01:19 am (UTC)

The stories/art are posted at the community. After the master list is posted, Thrusdays, than you can post everywhere.
[identity profile] yenny2206.livejournal.com on April 21st, 2012 04:18 pm (UTC)
Made a mistake is the masterlist is actually posted on Wednesday.

While the complaints against the sign-up system are old, I’d like to counter them with a bit of praise anyway. I love the weekly sign-ups, because they give me the push I need to finish each drabble. I have the very typical fanfic writer’s problem of not being very productive, so while I have hundreds of ideas, few of them are ever finished. If there were no sign-ups, I might easily let the days slip past until the deadline was upon me, and then simply think “oh well, no one will know that I even contemplated participating”, but once I’ve asked to be signed up, and my name is on a list, I will sit down and write something because I know that my contribution is expected to appear. It doesn’t matter whether I write 100 words of gold or 1000 words of nonsense; I will have written something, and that’s all that matters. So thank you for choosing to have weekly sign-ups. It makes all the difference to me. :)

Wow, Thank you so much! You made my day with this comments. I'm honestly happy that the community is a comfortable place to be where writers and artists can participate and is drama free :) Kinda like our small, happy, family :)

[identity profile] judin.livejournal.com on October 24th, 2012 01:03 am (UTC)

This community is completely drama free, unless you consider my intention to break the 1000-word-limit rule again this week worth some drama. *big innocent puppy eyes*

New and Confused
Is there a way I can view your previous prompts? I've tried looking around but I'm new and extremely confused.

Re: New and Confused
Hi and welcome.

All the prompts are listed on the right sidebar. Pt01: and so.
