Round 8 Banners

The banners for those who completed Round 8 of the challenge are now complete! I am so sorry that it took almost 6 months to get them to you. It won’t happen again. *pinky swear*

The fabulous Deebelle1 was kind enough to make these banners on a very short notice, and they turned out fantastic. She’s a sweet girl and makes pretty things. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, and FFn.

The banners can all be found on her Photobucket page. If you have trouble locating yours, let us know right away.

Thanks for your patience! Stay tuned for information about Round 9!

Practice Prompt

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you had a good holiday season, and we wish you the best in 2014.

If you’ve put off writing because of family events or one too many eggnogs (or alcoholic beverages), it’s time to get your head back in the game. Here’s a New Year’s Eve themed photo. Write us a drabble (exactly 100 words) in the comments below.

Round 8 Summary

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!
