This is very interesting. How did I not know about this?

 

I would like to join the Ambage. I may miss a few Skype events, however.

[color=rgb(0,128,0);]For those who have been wondering where the May writing prompt is hiding, we decided to extend April's into this month. Thus your prompt remains:[/color]

 

[color=rgb(0,128,0);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]"A new dawn"[/color][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]April-May Writing Prompt[/font][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,128,0);]If you like, you're welcome to write a second story for this same prompt, and count it toward your total.[/color]

Hello, fellow Ambage writers. Maybe some of you remember the Lesovikk's Hiatus contest I've been running; maybe some of you don't; or, more likely, maybe all of you don't. Whatever it is, I'm not asking for entries this time. I'm asking for judges.The number of entries in the Lesovikk's Hiatus contest isn't very big. As a judge, you would read all of the entries, then PM me your lists of the top five or so.If you're interested, please PM me posthaste. Thanks!In other news, I think it would be a cool idea to have some sort of co-writer competition in which each entrant pairs with another entrant and co-writes a story. I think the first co-writer competition should be short stories, and we could branch into mini-epics later if there's interest in running the competition again. We could even make it less of a competition and more of a team-building exercise (except less useless than those in Dilbert :P). What do you guys think of the idea?

Well, now that I'm a confirmed member, how do I join the Skype aspect of the Ambage?

 

Also, I would like to start writing asap, but I'll be out for the next 10 days on vacation.

 

Additionally, it's been a while since I've checked this topic out. For the Monthly Writing Prompt, we have to submit it as a story on BZP or could we use it in a write-off?

 

And I agree with Legolover, having a coop writing competition would be a great idea. It would at least iron out grammar errors :P

[color=#008080;]SonicBOOM: Add Velox or another Ambage host on Skype if you haven't already, and it should be easy enough to get going from there.[/color]

 

[color=#008080;]A question for all of you Ambage folk (although to be honest, mostly just to those of you that have participated in those short story compilations that you published): would anyone care to give something of mine a glance? It's not too long right now, but I'm hoping to publish it when it is finished, and would appreciate some additional advice. I already know of several changes I want to make (mostly pertaining to the third chapter), but would prefer to make the first series of changes all at once before moving on. [/color]

[color=#000080;][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]So I'm not completely sure why I waited to do this (probably to wait until the Flash Fiction Marathon is over), but there's no harm in doing it now:[/color][/font]

[color=#000080;][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]If at all possible, we definitely do prefer you purchase it from Createspace, as that way it supports the Ambage, whereas buying it from Amazon only supports Amazon. =P Either way, we hope you purchase it at the incredibly low price of under $7 and enjoy the 30-odd science fiction short stories written by your fellow BZPower members! [/color][/font]

 

[color=#000080;][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Note: The price was set at the lowest price possible, giving us none or very little profit depending on where you buy it -- we're not looking for profit here, all we want is for people to buy it, read it, and enjoy it.[/color][/font]

Oh, and Hi to everyone. I'm Kristykimmy and I'm here 'cause Nuile told me to be, only I'm going to keep calling him Thunder, if he doesn't mind. I write, I draw, I memorize entire musicals. Totally normal stuff. I guess I'll be hanging around a little, unless of course I've scared you and you want me to go back to my cave. I'll totally understand, it's a nice cave, after all.

BZP Administration has noticed an unfortunate trend of site members bringing up Ambage drama and disputes on the forums and causing trouble for the staff. This has been going on for quite some time now and it is high time that it stopped. Due to the escalating seriousness of these issues and the history of related difficulties with the Ambage, I am hereby shutting the topic and the Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contests down.
 
This brings me no pleasure to do, but this is our policy and I ask that you understand this decision.
 
Topic closed.
