May 2014 Challenge: Character Study

The May Challenge will be a "Character Study". This month's challenge asks you to create a story that deeply explores a single character. You might explore that person's childhood, history, flaws, motivations, hopes for the future, or any other aspect of the character that interests you. Your element will be a situation in which the character finds himself or herself at some point in the story and that will reveal truths about that person's character.

The May challenge stories will be due Monday May 19,and will be revealed on Wednesday, May 21. Please tag your story "challenge: character study" and "2014 may". 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 May challenge!

Hello :-)

I'd like an element.

Do we get to choose our character? If we do, I want . . . well, you probably know who. ;-)

Re: *Waving*
Yes, you can choose the character!

I work today, so it will probably be this evening or even tomorrow or Monday before I get the elements out!

Yes, please! Although I'm not sure I'll manage to get anything done in time, since I've got a lot happening over the next week, and then am off to Italy on Friday, but we'll see...
May. 5th, 2014 12:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, have a great time! Your prompt has been sent.
May. 3rd, 2014 08:38 am (UTC)
I would like an element. Since it's my first time to participate:

anything else I should know? length of the fic?
May. 5th, 2014 12:52 pm (UTC)
Your prompt is on the way!

There is no length requirement for this challenge (sometimes there are, but not this month), so your story can be as long or as short as you want it to be. Do be sure to check our ratings requirements (links on the community profile page), and be sure to use the header. If you have any problem with formatting, feel free to email me.

You can post at any time before the reveal date, since the stories stay hidden until then. Also, if you are a little late, don't worry about it.
