Just a reminder, the posting period begins soon!

You can start posting on Monday, August 10th, and posting runs through the 24th. This does not mean that we will stand over you with a stick and make you stop writing at 11:59PM on the 9th. Feel free to post at any time from the 10th-24th.

After that, we will still welcome stories. The prompts list will be thrown open to everyone, and hopefully we will get even more stories!

***

On another note, what do people think about tagging? I'm inclined to suggest that authors tag their stories with the name of the novel or novels they're writing about. Suggestions?

I think novel name tags are a good idea.

I'm not a ficwriter, but as a reader I would find the ability to look through novel-tags super-convenient.

I have a sort of a quick question.

Due to the nature of my prompt, I intend to fill the prompt a number of times in a group of loosely linked things. (I'm writing Dilithium and You type bits on various subjects.) My question is: Can I post multiple takes on the same prompt, or must I group them all together into one post?

Hi! I know you're busy and this is easy to forget, but you said you were going to ask ellen_fremedon my question when she returned from Worldcon.

My question was: Can I post multiple takes on the same prompt separately, or must I group them all together into one post?

Is 1,000 words story length? In that case, I'm good to go.

Oops


Er... That was a was a question. *Is* 1,000 words each long enough to qualify as story length for you?

Novel tags seem like the right tagging system to me. I think an author tag might come in handy some day (in the "I remember when so-and-so wrote a Trek novel fic" way) as well.

I put my story up at my personal journal today, but since no one else has posted a story here yet, I am not sure how to proceed re: tags. Should I wait for a post with instructions? I don't want to tag with the title of the novel and then have someone else tag in a different format. I've never used tags in a comm post before...
