Rules, if I get them all right:

1: These things usually last a month, with another week or two for voting.

2: Voting goes to the WGMaster via PM.

3: There will be a blank list of five slots posted in the first post of every Writer's Group; when they fill up the topic will be announced, and the month will start. Any other people can post a contribution if they want to, we won't stop people from writing, but voting can only be done by and for the listed five. If you want to participate in the next one, check back earlier. ^_^

4: The topic will switch between a topic, i.e., "Flowers", and a style, "Long Sentences". The first means your story has to be about flowers somehow as specifics dictate, and the second means you have to use that style in your story, again as the specifics dictate.

5: This is not only prose. Any form of writing, as long as it's actual writing and not three sentences, counts. Be creative! That's the point.

6: Comments and critiques are encouraged! Help your fellow writers, that's the point of this thing also.

If I missed anything, please mention it!

FIRST WRITER'S GROUP

This one will be different, because I'm specifically taking the topic from last time. Everyone who was in the old WG has a place in the Group, and I'll open up five more slots to people who want them. But next month it goes back to only five players.

OLD GUYS:
1. Asa
2.
3.
4.
5.

NEW GUYS:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

This is just so we can know who was in the old group.

I'd like to do this, but if it fills up fast and it starts while I'm gone, just fill my slot. Is it okay if my 'membership' is a teeny bit tenuous? I never know when I'm going to have disaster strike. *scowl*

Well, it took a while, but I'm gonna wait a few more days and see if we can't get one more new person to fill the last slot.
