    It's fun--probably because halloween is something I love. <3


    Oooooh this sounds amaaaziiiinnng. Oh god little green idiots that intentionally cause mayhem and chaos to people. It reminds me of the episode where Zim creates an entire future for Dib to try and find out if it was Dib who threw the muffin at him.

    I was thinking about the themes and I remembered seeing this writing challenge game on fictionpress once, and found it kinda interesting. It probably won't work out in this situation, especially because most people are writing multi-chapter stories, but we could maybe have a challenge of sorts on some weeks. Like doing a whole chapter without using the word said, or having to use a particular sentence at some point. Could be kinda fun, I dunno.

    When is Halloween, anyway? /not American

    If it's too late to set a Halloween theme, and it won't work for the next round, then maybe we could have a Thanksgiving (I dunno when Thanksgiving is either) or Christmas theme instead! That could be kinda fun too :)

    I say we do a Christmas Theme next month. That way the results will be in December. Seems appropriate to me.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Oh, and Halloween is on the last day of every October, while I think Thanksgiving is the last Thursday of every November.

    god the muffins... it's a perfect match.

    Halloween is October 31st, which is apparently a Monday this year. I second the Christmas theme with robot elves.

    I'd go for the Halloween theme, but Jay already entered a story and it wouldn't be fair to ask him to change it.
    I'd have no problem changing my story (in fact I still have to fix a few things in it before judging time begins ) but I think we should plan themes in advance. Like planning a Christmas theme would be possible since there is time to plan things before it begins. But it's halfway through the month of October already, Halloween being 16 days away. If anyone wants to start writing a Halloween-themed story that's fine, but I think it's a little late to make it a theme.

    A day where children dress up in costumes and go from door to door in neighborhoods and yell out "trick or treat". Then they get candy from whoever opened the door.

    This goes on alllllll night. And it is glorious.

    Well if we really want to have a halloween one we could lower the char minimum and make a short story I guess

    But I would love a christmas theme

    I think I could manage a Halloween-themed short story, and I'd be interested in reading others'.

    I dunno, I think we can encourage Halloween submissions, but to make them a requirement might be too much. I mean, it worked for the Bi-Weekly, but with only twelve competitions a year? I don't know. :\

    Themes might make if challenging for people that are writing the same story. Halloween, then possibly Christmas, then maybe Valentine's Day? (and other themes I haven't thought of) Monthly themes or special competitions based on themes would be pretty interesting, but it might be a bit much depending on how many theme contests there are. I'd totally be interested in reading them though.

    Ah, you have a point. A one-time, non-required theme then?

    Like ultimateclima more or less said, maybe you should consider setting an optional theme for every competition. Having directions or a certain goal might be encouraging for people to write something.

    I was gonna say it should be optional too. Sometimes when people have writers block, a prompt of some kind makes it easier, but we wouldn't want to deter someone who wants to submit but doesn't like that particular theme/topic that gets chosen.

    I'd write something for Halloween, but I'm too busy focusing on A Dastardly Two right now to work on something else. Maybe next year.

    We're going to make the Halloween theme optional this time. Maybe once we get more organized, maybe we can have dual competitions: the regular monthly contests and a two week contest with a lower character limit to give incentive to participate. A Christmas contest would be a good experiment.

    By all means, come join the fun.

    We stop accepting at the end of the month if you need more time to decide though.

    Oki~
    Just need a few ideas :|
    so there's a Halloween writing competition, right? Can it have ANY theme at all?
    Knowing me I'd submit one and it'd be either all pansy or bad because I'm terrible with gore even written down X'D stupid me.

    The theme is completely optional. It doesn't have to be about Halloween if you don't want it to.
