June Challenge: A Midsummer Night's Dream

I apologize for this late announcement!

The June Challenge will have the theme "A Midsummer Night’s Dream"; the theme is "dreams", and the starter/element will be a quote from the play. You may use your quotation in any way you like-- it does not have to appear in the story, it can be inspiration, or a title, or part of the summary. Of course, if you wish to use it in the story, you may.


Because this announcement is so late, the challenge stories will be not be due until Thursday, June 30, and will be revealed on Monday, July 4. Please tag your story "midsummer night's dream". 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 elements, 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, virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com, or celeritassagittae@gmail.com.

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

July Challenge: Summertime Blues

We are going ahead and announcing the July challenge now, since we are so late in announcing the June challenge.

Our July Challenge at the LOTR GenFic Community is our ever-popular Fixed-Length-Ficlet Challenge! The Theme will be "Summertime Blues", and you should include "blue" of some kind in the story-- you can use any shade of blue, or simply a blue mood. All the stories will be Fixed-Length Ficlets. 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!

Stories will be due the weekend of Friday,July 15, and will be revealed on Monday, July 18. Please remember to use the template on the community profile page as a header, to put your story behind a cut, and to put the title of your story and your name as the subject. Tag your story "summertime blues".

To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post with the number you pick! If you have any questions, you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com or virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com or celeritassagittae@gmail.com.

I hope that we will have lots of participants for July’s challenge!
