1st challenge? [Jan. 18th, 2004|07:33 pm]

Ok, here is a short challenge that you can do if you really want, or just wait until next week when I'll post a proper one, and we can go from there - sound okay?

Here's a relatively simple one -

Challenge 1: write a character's drunken conversation. It can be between two drunk people, one drunk and one sober person, one drunk person and himself, one drunk person and a parrot - whatever you want. The time limit is 1 hour, because it's our first.

If people like this and are still writing, or if new people join our crew and want to have a go, we'll extend it to the sunday after next. But if people hate it and think that quite frankly it's a rubbish challenge, then we'll try and think of another for next week - do we have an accord?

If you are one of the, quite probably, many many people who think this challenge is pants, please go easy on me and bear in mind I saw Return of the King for the first time this weekend - I'm totally brain-dead and will be until I see it again and get my head around the whole thing. Please please please feel totally free to email me with a challenge for next week or the week after, depending, because I am beginning to realise how hard this is going to be! Help!

***By the way, if you want to post a story, you'll have to do it as an lj-cut - you can find out how to do this here http://www.livejournal.com/support/faq.bml and it looks like this when you do it.

really hope this works

and you do it like this (very complicated so I'll try and explain) - this is how I did the one above - after much trial and a great deal of error - < l j - cut text = "Come to me my pretties" > really hope this works < / l j - cut > (but without the spaces in between)

most excellent

Aha, very glad to see community is running; feel very proud, as I have got a LJ account specifically so I could access this. Challenge not as bad as it could be, I'm going to have a go if I can actually figure out how to post it...in next few days I should think.
