THIS EVENT IS CLOSED
Our first Fiction Drive, hosted in March of 2021, was a rousing success. While we wait for a new year of contests to kick off, let's not neglect our other writing projects or those stories gathering dust in our desk drawers.
WHAT IS A FICTION DRIVE?
It’s a brief push to encourage critiquing and showcase what LegendFire is all about. Post a story, critique a bit, get entered into a raffle drawing. The goal is to keep it casual, low-stress, energetic, informative, and fun.
To participate, you must POST ONE STORY or EXCERPT (up to 3500 words) in the FICTION FORUM (the main Fiction forum, not the subforums) and CRITIQUE any TWO stories by other participants. (I will check word counts to ensure pieces remain under 3500)
All LF’s rules surrounding critiquing still apply. Keep it constructive and respectful.
Event opens Monday, January 3
Event closes Monday, January 17
All stories must be posted by January 12
Post stories any time between Monday, January 3 and Wednesday, January 12, 11:59 pm. Begin critiquing immediately or whenever is most convenient. Critiquing wraps up on January 17, 11:59 pm, whereupon Raveneye will draw your usernames from a hat. Literally.
ONE MORE TIME: Please have your story posted in the Fiction Forum by the end of January 12 to ensure others have time to critique it.
WHAT MAY YOU POST?
Any WIP you have been working on or that has been languishing in your desk drawer (up to 3500 words). This includes:
stories you may have written for LegendFire’s past contests
opening pages of longer short stories or novellas
opening novel chapters
up to three flash fiction pieces (each 1000 words max, posted in the same post).
Be cautious about posting rough drafts. Polish before you post.
REQUIRED. To help us differentiate your story from non-participating stories, and so we know to include you in the raffle drawing, the title of your post needs to follow this pattern:
“FICTION DRIVE: Your-Title-Here”
You must complete two critiques by the end of January 17 to be entered. All participants’ names will go into Raveneye's steampunk top hat. The winner will receive an ebook copy of the Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction, contributed by Raveneye.
All participants will earn 100 Hard Points upon completing two critiques.
No need to register. Just post your entry in the Fiction Forum using the required title any time before January 12.
