FAQ
Can I edit my story?
You can do minimal editing within the fifteen minutes allotted, although this should mostly be limited to things such as fixing typos.

When will each new word be posted?
Depending on your time-zone, they will be posted on Friday or Saturday.

What am I allowed to write?
Absolutely anything! Fanfic, original fic, poetry, remiscences, anecdotes... The point is to write on the go and (hopefully) surprise yourself with the results.

Can I write a ficlet for an older word?
Yes, of course! Sometimes, one word a week just isn't enough, so feel free to browse through the archives and write a ficlet inspired by any of the words from previous weeks.

Is there a limit to how explicit a story can be?
We accept stories of any ratings, provided the rating and any warnings are clearly stated in the summary.

If the prompt should inspire more than one ficlet, can I post all of them?
It's fine to post more than one ficlet if the word inspires them both. The more stories, the better!

How does the prompt word get picked?
It's chosen randomly from a dictionary.

Does the prompt word have to be used in the ficlet, or can it be more of the inspiration for the ficlet?
No, the prompt word does not have to be included in the ficlet. It's purely there to inspire you.

Why don't I have posting access for the community?
The only posts made in the community are the weekly prompt words, therefore only the mods have posting access. We encourage you to post your ficlets in a comment, either as a link to the ficlet in your own journal or in the actual body of the comment.

Can I affiliate with you?
Yes, please! If you'd like to affiliat with us, either comment on this post with your community's details.
