Stories written for our group's first annual Yule Fic Exchange.
An anthology of stories submitted for the August 2008 Challenge. The theme was "A Different Point of View", and the challenge was to write a story in either first, second, or third POV, using a character the author had never, or rarely, written before. In addition, each author was given 3 elements - a number, colour, and shape, to use in any way she wished.
The October Challenge will have a theme of Halloween or Harvest. (In other words, the story setting should reflect that time of year.) Your element will be a quotation from canon, and all quotations will be about something frightening or scary.
The GFIC Group's first Annual Yule Fic Exchange.
The April Challenge had the theme "Renewal". Authors could interpret the theme in any way they chose. The element for this challenge was a type of bird, which was assigned, and authors were free to use the element in any way they chose.rn
The Challenge for June 2009 was to write about a disastrous wedding, and each author was given one of 4 possible elements: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
The theme for the August 2009 Challenge was "Out on a Limb". Each author was assigned a type of tree as an element.
The 2009 October Challenge had the theme "Myths". In addition to the theme, each author was assigned a specific fruit to use as an element.
Stories written for our annual Yule Fic Exchange.
The 2010 May Challenge. The theme was "Tying Up Loose Ends", and the assignment was to write a gapfiller for a particular event.
For this challenge the theme was a White Tree, and authors were assigned a starter sentence to use any way they liked.
The August Challenge has the theme of "Two Sides to Everything". Each story was to include a debate, argument or disagreement between two or more characters. The element for these stories was a particular topic of debate.
The September Challenge has the theme of "Back to School". Each story was to deal in some way with education, whether in a formal or informal manner. The element for these stories was to be a subject of study, such as reading, arithmetic, history, music, etc.
The October Challenge had the theme "Believe It or Not!" The prompt for these stories was an adjective conveying a certain mood. Each story was to include a supernatural or unbelievable element.
The 2010 November Challenge with the theme "Pairs" was drabbles. These are "true drabbles" of exactly 100 words. Elements for the challenge were two words that seem to "go together" in a pair, such as "black, white" or "night, day" (they may or may *not* all be opposites) and were used in the drabbles.
Our annual Yule Fic Exchange in which authors are paired with the request of another writer.
The January Potluck Challenge is an annual challenge that consists of all the leftover elements from last year's challenges and each author was invited to choose her own prompts from among the "leftovers".
The February Challenge had the theme "Hearts and Flowers". Each participating writer was given three elements: a type of love (puppy,true,etc.), a type of heart (joyful, broken, etc.) and a flower.
