November 25th, 2012

1. There will be a total of 30 prompts this year, as opposed to 60 last year, since participants will have the first 11 days worth of prompts to draw from if the daily prompt doesn't inspire you that day.

2. Every Sunday between now and the end of November, I'll post the prompts for the coming week.

4. Participants may respond to the prompt for November 15 (for example) on or AFTER the 15th, but not before the 15th.

5. You may respond to any days challenge that you haven't yet filled. So, if it's the 15th, and that prompt doesn't inspire you, you can go back to any other unfilled prompt.

6. Each prompt is a separate prompt; you are not expected to combine prompts for multiple days.

7. If you post more than one response per day (completing a response for a prior day that has NOT already had a response posted for it), please post all responses in one post.

8. Please use tag: SWMININANO3 and your author tag.

I've tried to make the rules as clear as possible, but please let me know ASAP if you have any questions!!

November 11th, 2012

For a number of personal reason I won't bore you with, NaNoWriMo caught me off guard this year. I wasn't planning on holding this challenge at all, but patientalien contacted me and asked if I was going to run it this year. I've been trying to work out how to structure the challenges with already being 11 days into the month. I'm not sure this is a perfect solution, but let's see if this works for this year.

1. There will be a total of 30 prompts this year, as opposed to 60 last year, since participants will have the first 11 days worth of prompts to draw from if the daily prompt doesn't inspire you that day.

2. Every Sunday between now and the end of November, I'll post the prompts for the coming week.

4. Participants may respond to the prompt for November 15 (for example) on or AFTER the 15th, but not before the 15th.

5. You may respond to any days challenge that you haven't yet filled. So, if it's the 15th, and that prompt doesn't inspire you, you can go back to any other unfilled prompt.

6. Each prompt is a separate prompt; you are not expected to combine prompts for multiple days.

7. If you post more than one response per day (completing a response for a prior day that has NOT already had a response posted for it), please post all responses in one post.

Challenge 2012-02: Illness

Challenge 2011-31: Reboot

There have been a lot of reboots of movies and tv shows over the past couple of years, with varying degrees of success.

Well, here's your chance to reboot one of your challenge responses! Here's your opportunity to go back to a challenge response that didn't quite work at the time, or which looking back at, you'd have done differently.

Please include a link to the original in your author notes. It's up to you if you wish to explain why you felt that challenge response needed the reboot.

This challenge will conclude our 2011 challenges, so your challenge response is due by December 30, 2011

Title: To the Ends
Challenge 2011-30: "Great Leap" Quote
Word Count:
Characters: Leia Organa, Han Solo, Bail Organa, Luke Skywalker
Rating: K+
Summary: Leia Organa never stops moving. Leia Organa-Solo takes chances. Leia Skywalker should be no different.
Author's Notes: Title from "This is War" by 30 Seconds to Mars. AU to the EU and possibly more. But then just about everything I write is.

Challenge 2011-30: "Great Leap" Quote

Original Quote:

Obi-Wan: "A great leap forward often requires first taking two steps back."
Anakin: "And sometimes all it requires is the will to jump."

I like quote challenges, have you noticed? Whether you have or not, here is another one.

Your challenge this week is to write a scene around this quote; however, there's a twist. You should have expected that by now too! Instead of using the original quote, you have to use the quote as posted below, same words, different speakers:

Challenge Quote:

Leia: "A great leap forward often requires first taking two steps back."
Han: "And sometimes all it requires is the will to jump."

Title: the drums of war keep pounding
Challenge: SWMININANO2
Prompt: Walkers
Word Count: ~160
Characters: Mace Windu, unnamed clone troopers, OC
Rating: PG-13
Summary: She hears the noise of Walkers in her sleep.
Author's Notes: So gizzi1213 said we could use the rest of this week to finish off our swmininano2 posts, and I did! In a rushed and hectic manner, because I have two papers due tonight, my gosh. But anyway. Here they are! Oh, and own Star Wars, I so do not.

Title: always on the move
Challenge: SWMININANO2
Prompt: icon
Word Count: ~400
Characters: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi
Rating: PG
Summary: In the turbolift on board the Invisible Hand, Anakin keeps moving.
Author's Notes: So this icon is from that scene in ROTS where Anakin says, "There's more than one way out of here," and Obi-Wan sighs and says, "Always on the move," as Anakin impatiently burns his way out of the lift with a lightsaber. I wrote a fic to go with the icon, as per prompt instructions. Sadly, I don't own Star Wars.
