Dribs, Drabs & Doggy Tale Rules

Recommended Posts

There are two uses for this forum: User posted drabble challenges and AFF's weekly drabble contest.

So here are the basic rules for the AFF weekly challenge!

  1. Each week I will post a new writing prompt that needs to be used in some way, shape or form in your story.
  2. While the topic will be visible once the weekly news posting goes up, you will not be able to post to the topic until 8am Sunday. It will then automatically close at 11:59pm the following Saturday.
  3. There are now four different word counts to choose from - TwitFic: 140 Characters (Not words, characters ^.^), Drabble: 100 words (No more, no less), FlashFic: Up to 1,000 words, or ShortStory, which is anything over 1000 words.
  4. To submit your entry, please post the following information and only this information: Your Pen Name, a link to the story and if it's a TwitFic, Drabble, FlashFic or ShortStory. Also include rating, fandom, pairing and warnings.
  5. The Weekly Prompt thread is only to post your story - Any reviews on the stories should be put on the author's stories. Please do not leave commentary in the topic, those posts will be removed.

We will have available for download a banner/token each week for participants to display on their website, blog, journal, etc to show off that they participated. After we verify that the posted story conforms to the character/word guidelines we will send an email with the image attached.

Additionally, each quarter we will have a running theme in the word prompts. At the end of the quarter, we will post a topic for readers to guess what the theme is. By the end of the current quarter, we should have the point system back in place and will be awarding points to anyone who guesses correctly :)

Basic Rules for User submitted challenges:

  1. Please post your prompt in it's own topic
  2. Prompts should be applicable to any fandom
  3. If you would like to see a specific fandom, pairing, etc, you may place it as a request.
  4. As above, please post the following information and only this information: Your Pen Name, a link to the story and if it's a TwitFic, Drabble, FlashFic or ShortStory. Also include rating, fandom, pairing and warnings.

Sample post:

Pen Name: Apollo

Story link: (Link)

Review replies link: (link, if you have one)

Type of fic: Drabble

Rating: Adult ++

Fandom: Original

Pairing: N/A

Warnings: M/M, PWP, Oral, Bond

Please note that there's now an addition to the above example. You can now place a link to your review replies, if you've got one set up. If you don't have one at first but do later then you can simply edit your post later to include it. It's not necessary to have one, though.

Have fun writing!!!!

Added a new ShortStory option for the type of fic.

There’s now a new forth option for weekly challenges: ShortStory.  Previously, 1000 words was the longest your challenge response could be, but now you can choose “ShortStory” which can be any length you wish over 1000 words.
