January 2010 Vignette

Recommended Posts

FC:PbP is offering the community another "vignette" opportunity. If you'd like to read about our New Years Vignette exercise look here and here; info on our July 4th vignette can be found here, the Bloody Valentine/Friday the 13th one here, and the June Song vignette here. If you weren't around in those days (or even if you were), keep reading to find out more!

A new year has dawned, bringing with it new opportunities, a fresh start. Will your character make any New Year's Resolutions, pledging to improve some aspect of their life? And if so, how serious will they be in holding to it? Will it be nebulous ("lose weight") or precise ("lose one pound a week")? Will your resolution be made known to others, in order to gain support in achieving it? Or do you keep it to yourself, a secret vow regarding some aspect of yourself that you would rather keep hidden ("give up bizarre internet pornography")?

Who: Any player who is interested, for one or both of their characters.

What: Write a one (1) page (single spaced) vignette about your character's New Year's Resolutions.

When: The deadline for submissions will be Saturday, January 31st by 11:59 PM EST (GMT -5). The vignettes themselves can take place at any time.

Where: Anywhere. When you submit your vignette, please make a note clearly indicating in which forum it should be posted, as well as when it would be happening.

Why: To enhance our community, to flex your writing muscles, to think more deeply about your character, and to earn a bonus PP for your character for the month of January.

How: Once your story is finished and proofed, PM it to one of the Refs (angrydurf, AvengerAssembled, Ecalsneerg, Geez3r, Sandman XI, ShaenTheBrain, or myself). When all the stories are in, one of our staff members will post them to the appropriate forums (which is why we need you to be sure to tell us where it should go!), and provide links to them in this thread. DO NOT post them in a forum yourself, otherwise it will not be counted for this exercise.

Post here with questions.
