welcome back!

21 Jul

Due to a wonderful influx of interest, I’ve revived the Character Project and the first prompt is scheduled to be posted tomorrow. Some changes:

  • Biweekly prompts: Prompts are now bi-weekly rather than weekly.
  • Prompt flexibility: Pick one or more elements from the prompt. How much is completely up to you!
  • Editorial calendar: Prompts for the months to come in case you feel inspired: https://wegotcharacter.wordpress.com/editorial-calendar/
  • Change in role: Participants are now all Authors. This means you can write, edit, publish and delete your own posts, and upload files/images.
  • Publishing flexibility: You can publish your story whenever you’d like! There will be no rigid publish date any more.  This includes posting stories retroactively (for an old prompt, for example).
  • Categories: I’ll create categories for each prompt (typically the name of the character). Please ensure that you add this to your story before publishing.

I’m really looking forward to reading your wonderfully creative stories and for all of us to share in this act of creativity! If you experience any technical difficulties or need help, don’t hesitate to send me an email message and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

The purpose of this project is creative opportunity within a community context. It would be great if we could show each other support and respect as we read each others’ pieces. While constructive criticism and helpful suggestions are welcome, this is not the forum for harsh criticism or aggression.

Editorial policy: I reserve the right to take down any content that is deemed hate speech. Characters can be hateful but not vilified on the basis of their color, disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other characteristic. If you would like to write content with this in mind, please do it elsewhere since I will have a zero-tolerance policy and you will be removed from the project.
