    October 2013 Blog Chain

    Starting Date: Wednesday, October 2, 2013
    Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

    This month's prompt:
    Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

    Our spooky October prompt posits a trio of scary critters. Do what you will with them!

    As always, your entry can be prose, poetry, play, fiction, nonfiction.

    Instructions:
    Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. 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.

    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! Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

    Sure, but the chain is pretty shrimpy right now. Being at the end is no guarantee that you'll get more breathing room as of now

    I'd like to participate...though already I'm wondering what the heck I'll write about. Oh well, that's what an upcoming deadline and stress are for, right? Inspiring creativity?

    And the first post is up!

    Another short chain this month; I hope this reflects people being busy rather than a general waning of interest Either way, it's all Ralph Pines.
