In short, this is a sorta RNG-based game/prompt/challenge I've seen around that I've adapted for the Writer's Workshop. I've particularly found it valuable since I tend to gravitate to a very specific genre/setting/cast, and it's nice to use this as a low-stakes chance to push some limits.
Also, for people who might not read to the bottom because it's lengthy: i will review your writing for free and maybe other people will too?? pyramid schemes??
interested? read on.
why am i doing this?
Ever wished that you could write that random fic about Orre but never really wanted to commit to the entire thing? Keep finding out that all of your stories get placed in Best
As an added bonus, I'll review anything tagged as GG (genre gambles/this thread), unless the author asks otherwise!
what counts as me doing this?
Any sort of good-faith attempt to meet the prompt, regardless of length, counts! 250 words? 250 chapters? Both are fine!
how am i doing this?
It's time to put your fate in the heart of the
6. Friendship & Romance
8. Science Fiction
9. Slice of Life
3. Gjinka/hybrid/some fusion of pokemon and human
This section is also randomly rolled, but will change monthly. You know, to keep things fresh. May or may not be tied to the review game prompts. Themes are open for suggestion; sample themes would be what Pokemon the story must feature, genre (i.e. western/space/medieval/cyberpunk), style (epistolary, science log, poem, prose), type of narrator (first, second, third), or setting (kanto, johto, orre, space??). This category is honestly where the most specific prompting comes into play; the other two are more of the outlines of the story while this one kind of forces you into a more specific track.
when am i doing this?
Great question! Right now, prompts will last two weeks, but that might change to be more/less infrequent depending on how people find the schedule to work. There's also no superbig taboo on doing a previous prompt.
