Monday Vibes is a writing contest here on the wff! Every Monday, a new prompt will be posted for you to write your own short story on. You'll have until that Sunday to write and submit the story, so I can read and judge them all and give the results on Monday! There will be a rubric and people of all skills are welcomed! There are no real prizes except being on the wall of fame, so use this space to have fun, practice, and be creative. I will give critiques and reviews to anyone who asks for a rubric breakdown~
How to join: 1- Write a story on the theme 2- Post it on your own thread. Make sure to have a good title! 3- Link the thread here as a submission 3.5- If you want critique, state that you want a rubric breakdown in the submission post; otherwise, I will just give the numbers with no reasons. 4- Wait for Monday's results
- Rubric -
Title /2 - Does it fit the story? Is it compelling? Unique? Plot and Conflict /5 - The meat of the story. Can I follow the plot points in a logical way? Is it cliche? Does the conflict fit the character's struggle? Characters /5 - Do you have likable characters? Do they have personality? Desires? Weaknesses? Are your supporting cast developed? Style /5 - Did you pick an appropriate tense and tone for your plot? Is your writing compelling and makes me want to read more? Does the style fit with your POV? Grammar /1 - If there are many mistakes in spelling and grammar as to be distracting, you will lose a point; otherwise, a free point. Theme /2 - Did you follow the theme? If yes, free points. If somewhat, half points. TOTAL /20
In the case of a tie, I will ask my trusted board of judges for a volunteer to read the tied shorts and vote on their favorite. This judge cannot have been a participant.
remember, the prompt is due on sunday night! There are no length requirements, so get writing. Even a short poem can win! join up now; if you're the only one that enters, you automatically get first place~
I haven't been to the WFF since the old forums, but this looks really fun. I'm interested in joining in at some point! (:
Please do! I'd love to read more people's works from that era (;
Since no one submitted anything for the last prompt, I'll run one more week with the same one~ That way, people that were working on something for last week's and didn't finish in time can still submit!!

I may write one but sheesh, time is getting away from this old geezer. Been working on my own work trying to finish that, but seems its taking forever while the ti,me races by on fighter jet wings! But I miss "playing" here!
I can't wait to see it! Two more days for all yall that want to be entering!
And idk if yall saw, but I kinda put up a short on the prompt too (; Not like I can judge my own work (though it would get FAR from perfect marks on this rubric haha) so it's not really an entry, but of course I enjoy the vibes that I'm putting up for prompts.
speaking of I should Probably start brainstorming for the next week's already so I won't be scrambling for ideas
That was actually refreshing to write<3 I haven't written from the POV of cats in a while, and I also haven't been able to write in a bit, it seems. So this was actually great. Thank you, Brownie, for having this contest. It helped to push me do something that I love and haven't been able to do lately<3
I totally will! And I'm gonna keep from reading them until the date so yall can make edits and such up until the last minute if you wish~
And totally! Thanks for entering I really appreciate it!!! Hopefully this can continue for a while with activity and not die; the wff has been rather dead for a while now and it would be cool to spark some new life into it. So thank you for taking the time to join in <3
and yea cats are just so much easier to write for some reason? I've been dragging my heels on writing my actual novel but I can sit here and write 3k in silly battle cat plots without even thinking about it

Well, thanks to my respiratory infection returning and thwarting plans of Fair going today, I had a few moments to just fling out a little story, revealing my own emotions when silver white winters melt into spring. . . .
It's midnight which means entries for this week's are closed!
I'll put up the next prompt now so that time zone peeps can get started if they want to~ This round will be judged tomorrow morning. A true Monday Vibe. I can't wait to see what yall wrote! (I peeked a LITTLE BIT, just to see formatting and length okay)

Turin not Torino: I once checked in a guest that lived on Fire Star Ct. I also used to live down the street from a Half Moon Dr. The weirdest one for me though is my ex named his kid Brook(e?) Hazel, and I am willing to bet he'd never even heard of Warriors before.

Tawnyfire: i keep getting drawn back here by memories of old rps, but i can't tell if they were here or the old site, but memories all the same

☾ ☯♢ Ivyeyes ♢☯ ☽: i love rps!!!!!!!!!!! CRINGE CULTURE IS DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tawnyfire: i genuinely don't know what cringe culture is
Nov 30, 2022 13:38:05 GMT -5
Hawkeyes258: It's assuming certain things people like are considered cringy. Usually used by edgelords who want everyone to be miserable

Tawnyfire: oh, that's what that is

Quill: A YouTube called Contrapoints does an excellent video essay on cringe culture, I highly recommend it.
