October 2010 Challenge: Believe It or Not

The October Challenge will have the theme "Believe It or Not". Stories should contain something supernatural or unbelievable. The prompt for the challenge will be an adjective that will be used in the story. The adjective will be a word conveying a certain mood.

The challenge stories will be due the weekend of Friday, October 22,and will be revealed on Monday, October 25. Please tag your story "believe it or not". Please remember to use the header template on the community profile page, and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.

To request your prompt, please leave a comment to this post. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com or virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our challenge!

The "Q"-verse ficlet I'm trying to finish might meet this challenge theme! What are the due dates and tag? They're missing from your post. Feel free to give me an adjective, and I'll see if I can work it into what I have so far.

Thanks! That's what I get for posting so early in the AM! As you can see, I fixed it now! I gave an extra week, since I am a few days late in posting this announcement.

I will send you a word right away.

The due date isn't showing up, but I'll take a chance anyhow. I desperately need to write something outside of my current WIP. It's my first time, so here's my email: scrapcat21 @ gmail (dot) com.

I want to get back into writing LOTR, so I will give it a shot. I had my email hacked into the other week, so I'm now really paranoid about putting it anywhere, so I will email the mods, so you can reply to that.

Can I just check, when it says stories are due the weekend of Friday 23rd does that mean you need to post it by Friday 23rd or Sunday 25th?

I sent your prompt!

Anytime over that weekend is a good time to post and that's when most of the stories show up, but truthfully you can post even earlier if you like. The stories are kept hidden in the moderator's queue until that Monday when we unlock them. And we don't turn away late stories, though if they are more than a day or so late, they usually miss out on the official announcement.

Ok, thank you. And I got the prompt - hopefully I'll be able to think of something to do with it and post it before that Monday :)

Hey Barbara, your co-mod in crime will give it her best shot, lol! The way things have been lately I make no promises, but go ahead and send me a prompt. Halloween is one of my favorite challenges!

I know I haven't posted the last story I signed up for yet (I am fairly optimistic that I will post in a few days), but I like this kind of thing, so could I join in?
