:bulletorange: We offer prompt challenges, featuring articles and contests periodically!

:bulletblue: We do not accept poetry in digital art format.

:bulletpurple: If you have a mature tag, it goes into the “Mature-ONLY" folder.

:bulletblack: Chapter works go into “chapter prose.” Singles go into “prose.”

:bulletgreen: If your work is denied, it's probably because it was submitted to the wrong folder.

:bulletpink: There is to be NO flaming of the art that is submitted to our galleries. Please be a nice person, it's the best thing to be. :heart:

Greetings, scribbling masses!
It is I, your friend and contributor Kurt.

This week it's my turn to run the weekly prompt and I'm very excited. We have so many great writers in this group I just know that you guys are going to deliver the goods and I can't wait to start reading your submissions.

The theme of this weeks prompt is 'Superstition'. We all have them even if we don't realise it.
Would you walk under a ladder? Would you step on a crack in the pavement? Do you have a lucky charm or mascot or ritual? Are there any stories you've heard that warn you away from certain perils?
I remember when I was little, My Mum would always tell me never to stick my arm into the hole in a bottle bank, or else the creatures that live inside it would grab me and drag me to my doom! I still look at bottle banks with a certain sense of suspicion even to this day.

You can play around with this theme as much as you like, but here are a few prompts to get your creative juices flowing (I love that term)

1 – I never should have....
2 – Like they always say....
3 – It wasn't until....

Make of these what you will. They don't have to be titles or anything, and if you come up with your own ideas that's even better.

Rules:

1 – Keep to a reasonably mature level. We all love a bit of nastiness but you need to justify it.

2 – Fan-fiction is acceptable. Just mention where it's from.

3 – Only one entry per person.

4- 3,000 word limit for prose, 60 lines for poetry. (I'll allow an over-count margin of 10% as I know fitting things to a specific word or line limit can be hard. Please be aware, I'm a trained teacher, I WILL check, ha ha!)

5 – Try and keep your work looking as neat and professional as you can. Unnecessarily weird formatting is annoying. If you have any problems look around online for a style guide.

6 – Please link you deviation in a note to the appropriate admin (This week: Kurt-Jarram )

7 – You don't have to be a member to join in.

8 – It must be a new deviation. (Deviations previously submitted in this current month are also acceptable, if there are any)

9 – Make sure to follow the weekly prompt. It changes content every week!

Submissions due by August 24th.

Have fun and happy writing. If you have any questions or problems please feel free to contact me, it's what I'm here for.

Kurt. Xx

First off, welcome to :iconwriting-rampage:!!! :squee::squee::squee::squee::squee:

We  welcome you with open arms, and hope to see you do many things with us. :)

To answer your question, if you click on submit at the top of your page it will take you to an entry point where you can upload a file or drag it to your window. Below and directly to the right of the button that says "Drag your file here" is a link to allow you to enter text into the file document, without it being a journal entry. Just remember there is a title above the body to fill in, and a description box directly below it. I hope this helps, and look forward to viewing your work. :) :heart:
