Black Friday: One-Day-One-Shot!
« on: November 11, 2018, 07:09:25 PM »
Hey y'all! So I know November can be intense for writers what with holidays and nanowrimo and all that. I'm feeling the grind myself, but I thought it would be fun to still do an 'of the moment' story, similar to nanowrimo, but on a much smaller scale.

So here's the set-up, and I am admittedly biased here. But Thanksgiving in america is November 22nd, and the day after is black friday, which is a day a lot of us will have free to do basically nothing. Instead of just sleeping off the turkey haze however, I'm proposing something of a mini writing event! The One-Day-One-Shot! (patent pending). Basically we take the day to write a story. The rules are simple and as follows:

The story must be:
  • Self-contained
  • At least 1000 words long
  • Written within 24 hours


Just post your stories here for everyone to enjoy! Since they should all be short little reads, I also want to see people reading and critiquing each others. I'll of course be here to set a good example, so I hope to see some of you along side me!

Happy writing!

Ooooh, tempting. I'll have to keep this in mind. I did promise (sort of) to write more Ecchiworld originals...

shame I'm busy that day, being not in America and all that....
I would totally join normally, so hopefully next time. it's a lot more manageable to do a short story over a short time period.
How about I take one story you guys write and make a 10 page manga or so? That sounds like a decent compromise. It'll probably be low quality to get the pages out but I'd love to try that.

I'd offer that a suitable alternative would be to just push it off until Saturday? Or even just that evening if you aren't busy. There's a reason I only dictated 1000 words minimum. It's not a long bar to clear.

I'll do this storywise, but suuper, if you're interested in pitching a short manga contest thingie I'm in. I always love an opportunity to flex dem muscles on that front.

Well date-wise I won't be able to contribute since I'm not free. I had in mind using someone else's story for the manga script but now that you mention it I could always write my own. but it'll be a day late :P

Well you'll note in the rules that it just needs to be written in 24 hours. Didn't specify which. Black Friday is just a convenient date to anchor it around.

I also work Friday (cue a million jokes about YouTuber ItsBlackFriday), but I was planning on doing this whole shabang on Saturday. Unless the schedule comes in and I also work Saturday. Then it'll be whatever my next free day is.
