Joss 10K

An EPIC Challenge

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated

The Challenge: Write a new fic in the Jossverse of at least 10,000 words in 10 weeks.

Rules | Challengers | Winners

The Idea:

We want to see some nice, long fics that we can really sink our teeth into. The point of this community is to encourage the writing of new multi-chapter stories. We have no prompts or restrictions on pairings or ratings. We want to see it all.

The Rules:

  1. Pick any character(s) or pairing(s) from any of the three television shows created by Joss Whedon and let us know about it here.

  2. Write a brand new fic of at least 10,000 words and post it here within 10 weeks of signing up! No prompts, no other requirements!

  3. Please post chapters as you write them. We'd like to see your fic updated regularly, with a goal of reaching 10,000 words within 10 weeks of accepting the challenge, or from the date you specify during signup that you can begin writing. You can continue your fic past the 10 weeks, it is only necessary to post the first 10k words in 10 weeks to get moved to the winners list.

  4. Use a header for each chapter - include word count, pairings, rating, and warnings at the very least.

  5. Headers go outside the lj cut, fic goes under.

  6. Use a beta.

  7. Give feedback if you read something here that you like. If you have concrit, send private email.

  8. There is no limit to how many people can choose a character or pairing, and no limit on how long your fic can be.

  9. When you sign up, we'll put your name up on this page as a challenger. When you finish your 10k words, you get moved to the winners list with a link to your fic!

The Don't Room:

  1. No flames! If you don't agree with a pairing or characterization, move on.

  2. No RPF or RPS. There are other comms for those.

  3. No drabbles.

  4. Don't link to a post in your journal or elsewhere, we want the fic here, though you can post it other places too.

  5. No artwork or off topic posts. Fic only.

  6. Membership is currently open, and posting unmoderated. Let's all play nice and keep it that way. Email me at heathervamped@gmail.com if you have any questions about something you want to post.
