Round 8 has come to a close. We hope everyone was able to challenge themselves, whether by writing about different characters, pairings, or situations, using different tenses or POVs, or even by procrastinating and writing all 25 prompts on the last day. No matter your reasoning for participating in the challenge, we hope you had fun most of all.
Of the 68 authors who signed up for Round 8, 35 completed the challenge. While that may not seem like a lot, it’s more than half, and that’s actually pretty good! Those of you who wrote all 25 prompts and submitted the link by the deadline will receive a banner made by ms. ambrosia from FicPics. She’s done a great job on the last few rounds, and we’re excited to see what she has up her sleeve for this one.
Whether or not you finished the challenge, be proud of what you accomplished. You’re a better writer because of it. Set a new goal, and try again next time.
A lot of people were involved in making this round a success. Thank you so much to all the pimpers and validators who helped us out: dcurley_1, EveryDayBella, Fiyaaa, Indie Rayne, Julie Durden, Love M Go Blue, Missus T, and Twilly. It was a pleasure working with all of you.
As always, we want your feedback, as well as suggestions for future challenges. How did you feel about the prompts? Flashfic? Site, Facebook, and Twitter posts? General challenge operation? Please let us know what we did right and how we can improve.
Stay tuned for the banner reveal later this month. Information regarding Round 9 will be available sometime after the new year.
Until next time. Keep writing!
