September Challenge: Seventy-five!!

In honor of the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit on September 21, 1937, this month's challenge will featured the number "75" in honor of the occasion. The number "seventy-five" must be used in the story. Your prompt will be a quote from The Hobbit, which you should include in the story. However, stories do not have to be set in that book-- entries may, as usual, be set in any of Tolkien's writings and feature any of his characters or races.

The September challenge stories will be due Friday, September 14th and will be revealed on Sunday, September 16th. Please tag your story "seventy-five" and " '12 September". 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").

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 September challenge!

Hi! I just posted my story for the challenge. You say, Please tag your story "seventy-five" and " '12 September"... but I don't see a "seventy-five" as one of the choices.

Sep. 14th, 2012 01:10 am (UTC)
'S OK! Tags are the only thing I CAN edit! I'll put it in.

I tried to tag my story, but it kept saying I wasn't authorised to do so.I'm afraid I'm a little late for I had a busy weekend.

Ignore that about the tags, being worn out from my weekend's adventures, I accidentally posted the story to the drabble community I belong to! I've hastily deleted it and posted it here complete with tags.

'S OK. We are a little late this month with opening the stories, due to the 16th being on a Sunday. They should go up today!
Sep. 17th, 2012 02:28 pm (UTC)
Well, I missed the deadline. I'm sorry! I just got busy here. I actually wrote the piece. I just never submitted it. I guess I just tried to do too much too soon.

I'll wait a while to try again, until things calm down a little more.

Sep. 17th, 2012 03:00 pm (UTC)
You are never too late here! If it is finished, go ahead and post-- we are a little late opening the stories this month! Yesterday was Sunday, and we are not used to unlocking the posts on Sunday.

But we are OK with late entries here, anyhow!
