Hello lovely folk,
Normally you have the super-efficient
posting your updates, showing us all up with her amazing admin and tech skillz (oh yes, the 'Z' was ironic...)
But unfortunately, once a month, you will have to endure journals from yours truly, a negligent reprobate when it comes to posting important stuff on this group.
I had an idea for a challenge (although we did discuss it being a contest at one point) which I discussed with Sleyf at the beginning of the year and it is this:
Challenge your creative skills this new year:
Want to stretch your creative muscles this year? Bored of writing about the same old characters/ drawing the same old faces? (Not that they aren't fabulous of course) then why not put your amazing abilities to the test with this new OC challenge?
The rules are thus:
- Pick a genre you haven't explored before (e.g sci-fi, romance, historical, mystery, horror etc.)
- Then, between February and November this year, you will be assigned a new challenge every month for developing said new genre, which will include character creation, interesting back stories, writing/ drawing prompts etc.
- Some tasks will be simple, some will be more complex- but hopefully all will be fun!
- If people actually last the entire year, and I, who will be following the challenge in a folder in this group, will look at the faithful candidates and each pick a 'winner' e.g. someone who has developed the most convincing character, story etc, authentic tone, interesting history, creative appearance etc and I will be offering artwork, points and core membership to said winners.
- This will occur in December (More on the prizes closer to the time.)
- Please comment below if you intend to give this a try.
Below is February's challenge meme, please read carefully, complete and submit to the 'World Creation Challenge folder'.
The deadline for completing this meme is Saturday 5th March 2016, midnight.
Go forth adventurers and conquer new lands in your imagination!
