Because your mods are working on Back-to-Middle-earth-Month in March, we are going to do something a little different for the upcoming month: we will be incorporating b2mem into the March Challenge!

Therefore, your prompt will be self-selected. Choose among the many prompts that will be offered at the "Tharbad's Greenway Spring Faire" . Pick one (or more) that you wish to be your contribution to this community's March Challenge. That story must appear first at the lotr_community. You will also use the usual story header. For "theme" enter Back to Middle-earth Month, and for "elements" enter the prompt you chose. Remember that the rating guidelines for this community remain the same for this challenge. (Check the group's profile for links to the rating guidelines.)

Also, remember to put your story's title and your name in the subject line! Tag your story "challenge: b2mem 15" and "month: march 2015".

Because this is different from our usual challenges, we will begin to unlock the queue after March 1, as soon as a few stories begin to show up, rather than waiting until the middle of the month. Once your story has been revealed here, you are free to post it elsewhere as usual.

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

Darn it, I need some farthings!

Everyone automatically starts out with 15. So you have that many already.

You can earn more by leaving reviews once the stories start to come in, or by making promotional announcements for the event or by making icons/banners or a few other activities that will help.

Thanks for the tip!

Do we comment here with the prompts we have chosen, or just go ahead and post the stories to the queue?
Feb. 27th, 2015 12:29 pm (UTC)
You can if you like, but it's not necessary.
Feb. 27th, 2015 05:35 am (UTC)
Also, is this challenge for March or February?

*facepalm* What I get for posting at bedtime. *sigh*

March, of course.

Aren't there any that don't involve Elves?

There are a lot that don't have to do with Elves, dare I say maybe even a majority don't? Here is the master list of stalls. Prompts are by story setting, so avoid the Elf-centric settings and you'll find those to do with Men, Hobbits, Ainur, Dwarves, etc. I just scrolled through a few that have no Elves: Arnor, Gondor, The Shire, Numenor, and Erebor, Dale, & Laketown. Those are just the first few I clicked on.

Certainly! You just have to look in the right market stalls. There are several hobbit prompts in The Shire market, lots of prompts about the Dunedain in the Arnor stall, Gondor has prompts about the Steward's family. There are stalls for Bree, Rohan and Erebor, and special places to buy prompts for stories that could be for any Race or for crossovers.

Here's the link to the list of Market Stalls:

I posted my story here, and am impatiently waiting for you to release it so that I can cross-post it to B2MeM. I had a lot of fun writing it, and would like the person whose prompt it is to have the fun of reading it.

Oh well, off to write the next one ... *hugs*

It's now unlocked! In all the huge influx of b2mem emails in my inbox, I managed to overlook the single lotr_community notification.

Can't wait to check it out when I get home from work this afternoon!
Mar. 4th, 2015 04:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much. I'll try and change the headers and get it posted on B2MeM this afternoon or evening. Appreciate your looking after me (yet again).

I'm little confused, if we're not taking part of b2mem but we are this community, do we still have to sign up and "buy" the prompt for b2mem or do we just pick a prompt and use it here?
Mar. 26th, 2015 08:21 pm (UTC)
You don't need to sign up for b2mem. Any participation at all at any level is fine. Technically you'd "pay" a farthing, but you automatically get fifteen of those anyhow.

All you really have to do is choose a prompt and write it, and post it here as usual. You don't need any further participation at all.

I assume I can still post a B2MEM story for the March challenge even though it's no longer March! Alas, I'm getting in the habit of being late these days. :-( I do have something I've been working on, though, so hopefully it will get posted before the April challenge begins!
Apr. 2nd, 2015 08:10 pm (UTC)
We don't worry much about late, so yes, you can still post your March story.

I'll probably be posting April's announcement in a day or so. April's poetry month.
