    June 2012 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Monday, June 4, 2012
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Weird Worlds

    This prompt is wide-open! Your world could be retro-future, steampunk, planetary romance, a character with a slingshot, Disney Princesses gone mad, finding out you are the spawn of Satan, flaming June flamingos, or even being stranded on an evil pony island. Write wherever the prompt inspires you, fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry. Do try and keep things at a PG-13 level, though.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you!

    I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn.
    Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete your post. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread. If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

    Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post, and keep in mind we're not starting until later in the month to give people time to sign up.

    I'm glad I don't have to say that for once. Okay, orion_mk3 is next, and he'd better deliver or else.
