So. Like some of us here, *coughcough*Des*coughcough*, I have been stealing ideas from another forum. :) Except, this idea is more writing-oriented than just...talking-oriented. Yeah. Something like that...-is awkward-

But, this is where we can either give out challenges or participate in them. Since I feel a bit uptight today, I will take the time to create a form you guys have to fill out to make your own challenge. And then, to participate...well, just say "I'll do ___________'s challenge," or something, and then edit in the link of the fic when you're done. (Yes, you can take part in your own challenge. Feel special.)

AND - if the challenge is Open, which means it has no deadline, then another person can start a challenge while that one is going on. If there is a challenge with a deadline going on, no other challenges can be created. Does that make sense?

So, without further ado, here's the form:

Title Of Challenge: -insert title-

Word Limit: -insert word limit-

Rating Limit: (Like, whether it can be K-T or K-M)

Description Of Challenge: (What you want the people to do, different ways to approach the challenge, et cetera.)

Bonuses, if any: -insert special stuff people can do if they really want to-

Deadline: (Either Open or due by a certain date)

**If you are a contestant in your own competition, you must have a separate post for your entry and the challenge you've created. Therefore some might see double-posting. I'd appreciate it if people didn't freak over that. ;)**
