Can we write original stories or is it limited to just fanfic?
You can write original stories for all of these story challenges! :D The KHIII challenge can also count and I'll allow original characters to be used in it too.

@Ethy: Kay, Kay. I like your 20mins or less challenge! I'm not sure I know what it's like to have loss before, but it does kind of hit right in the feelz. I do feel bad for the MC, but I imagine someday he/she will have to accept their loss and carry on without her. Definitely a fun read. :)

Thanks KitKat! =D

Loss is hard, especially when you never realize how important somebody is to you until you drift apart or lose them forever. I do hope that you never have to deal with it :c

I wish I could have conveyed more in it because the concrete buildings were meant to represent the intricate friendship/love built...oh well. Not much you can do in 20 min but I had fun~

Does this mean I can't just cheese my challenges by writing CLASSIC like I did last year? Or does this just mean I actually have to write something new for this instead of posting something I already wrote before?

I'm probably not going to do all the challenges this time around though.

I figured you probably wouldn't do all of them this year. lol. I might try to though. *u*

Yes, you have to write something new. If it's something new you wrote for CLASSIC, it can count. If it's something you posted before, then it doesn't count.

I am totes gonna take part in this. I feel like I've been neglecting my writing as of late, so these challenges are quite a sight for sore eyes. I actually started writing something for the 20 minutes or less but I surpassed the time and it began to turn into something else than I originally had planned so... oops.

Happy to have you aboard, Lonbilly! C: Long as you wrote it for 20 minutes or less, it can still count. It's not like I'm going to be able to tell where you stopped and kept going. lol.

@Chibi: Your 1,000 words story is awesome. I love the concept of tattoos being much more magical than simply ink on skin. <3 Truly inspiring and imaginative to say the least! Also, I like how you pointed out the mother was typing on her phone and not paying attention. Very realistic in this modern day and age. :) (And thank you for providing how many words were in it as well.)

Wow, is it really that time of year again already? I can't believe it's been a year since the last summer challenges. I'm pretty excited for this, it's a good way to get the creative juices flowing again. I like some of the new challenges as well (He said/She said, sounds like something I've written with a certain someone before, hahaha).

Like CD, I don't know if I'll hand in an entry for every challenge this year. I've been working a lot more this summer, and I remember last summer being hectic trying to get all of the entries in. Kudos to anyone willing to try though! I'm looking forward to everything everyone comes up with this time around and seeing how everyone has grown as writers.

Also, I'll just shamelessly leave this here... (last year's entries)

Lol I think I'm actually gonna use it for the Detective/Murder Mystery entry instead, and do a different one for the 20 minutes or less.
