Over on this post, it was discussed whether or not we should have writing challenges on Meta. The result: we give it a try, and see how it works. That's the point of this post!
Here's how this will work:
The plan was for there to be a (optional, I think) prompt, to help inspire you to write. We're not doing a prompt for this test run, mainly because there isn't (yet) a way to decide on them. You're free to use the example one on the proposal page, although that was a 3-second example.
So to enter the challenge, you simply write something, and post it below. It can be a work in progress, and continue working on it while receiving feedback, or it can be a finished work - anything goes.
You can submit your entries until the end of the three weeks - we'll see how that period of time works. After three weeks, we'll choose the next prompt and put up a new post. After this trial run, however, we'll be seeing how well it worked, what could be done better, etc.
You can either post the whole thing here, or, if you usually post your writing somewhere else, you can put a link here - although I'd advise putting something in to get people interested.
Remember: this is not a contest. This is merely for fun, and for some practice writing. There will (hopefully) be writers of all different skill levels posting - I'm certainly not super good.
You're welcome to provide feedback, but please make sure that it's constructive. And remember: Be Nice.
Remember that the age limit for the site is 13 - I'm only 14 myself - so please avoid excessive graphic content or strong language.
This is a test run, with several committed users who are going to try it. If you weren't one of them - join anyway! The more the merrier!
