July Story Challenge: Lazy Summer

The July Challenge is our annual Fixed-Length-Ficlet Challenge, and will have the theme "Lazy Summer", and is based on this quote: quote (from Sam Keen): "Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability." The element will be a number between 101 and 400. Interested authors can reply to this announcement and claim a number. No one will be allowed to have a number previously claimed. Whatever number is chosen will be the word count for your ficlet-- if you choose 237 your story must have exactly 237 words!

The July challenge stories will be due Saturday, July 14th and will be revealed on Monday, July 16th. Please tag your story "lazy summer" and " '12 July". 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 (e.g. "Frodo's Amazing Adventure by Mary Sue").



You have only to comment with your number here, that will be your element; do not choose a number someone else has selected.

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

Ok, I DO have one. How do I submit my story? It doesn't sound like I post it. Email, perhaps?

Hugs,

You do just post it to the community, using the header provided. It won't show up when you post it-- we moderate the entries, and then on the day they are revealed, we unlock them, so that all the stories show up on the same date. It actually means that you can post early if you like!

Just make sure to use the subject line. Put the title of your story, and then put "by Mad Hobbit". Subject lines will be important this month, as we also have the other challenges running (art and special), and we don't want to unlock the wrong things on the wrong day, LOL.

So just post it with the proper subject line. Ok, will do. I want to work on it a bit more first.

I didn't know this community existed until Shirebound mentioned it. I've been looking for some challenges to do. I'll get more involved once the move is done.

Thank you!
Hugs,
Rach
