March Prompt Request

The Prompt Request is now CLOSED. 

 The Prompt Request is open from now (Saturday, 24 March, my time) until after I collect eggs on the morning of Easter Sunday, 8 April, my time.  This is an insane and possibly pointless length of time but as long as we’re all having fun and no-one gets hurt, does that matter?

If you give me more than one prompt you need to know that I will work through the list in order starting at the top.

The rules and parameters:

  1. Each prompt will be:
    1.  a short sentence or phrase;
    2. a story of mine posted to LJ you want to see more of – it does not need to come from a Prompt Request; or
    3. characters of mine from stories posted on LJ – they do not need to come from a Prompt Request.
  2. For each prompt I write to I will write 300±50 words.  If you want to see something I’ve done along these lines before, please see my http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/tag/30%20days%20of%20flash%20fiction tag or the results of a previous prompt request on the http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/tag/prompt%20request%2031%20dec%2011 tag.
  3. I will write one prompt per person, unless you signal boost this Prompt Request or a story from it , in which case I will write an additional prompt per site/platform you boost on i.e. one prompt each on LJ, Twitter, Dreamwidth, etc, for each day of the prompt request you signal boost.  I am setting an arbitrary limit of 14 extra prompts per prompter from boosting.  You will need to tell me about your boosts because I am not across every site and platform.
  4. For each prompter I get, I will write 50 words in a prompting reward serial story;
  5. No fanfic, I just don’t know enough about enough current series and settings to do your favourites justice – give me a name or names and I promise what you get will not be the people you know and love; and
  6. Please, nothing that has to be porn – I have to be in the mood to write that sort of thing and I would like to be able to post these stories without warnings.  (Yes, I know, 1b & 1c could produce prompts that are almost like that.)
  7. For every ten prompt-based pieces I write I will I write a background piece on a world or character, subject to be chosen by http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/66432.htmlaudience poll.

Why am I doing this?  It’s almost a month since last time did it.  Practice!

And yes, there is a tip jar.  This is for extensions.  I will write extensions at 500 words per $5.00.

Prompt Extensions

  1. If I receive any money for extensions I will be flabbergasted (screen shot will not be available J).
  2. For every $15 I receive for paid extensions I will write to one more prompt, chosen by those who have paid for extensions, from any ‘unsupported’ prompts received in the Prompt Request.  This will occur after I have written the paid extensions.  An ‘unsupported’ prompt is one which does not have a signal boost to support it.

If you are kind enough to give me more signal boosts than you want to prompt, I will use each of your ‘left over’ signal boosts to power another 50 words in the prompt reward story.  Please tell me where you’ve signal boosted as a reply to your comment giving me prompts.

Thank you for participating.

I have written to your first prompt here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/69467.html

Have you done any signal boosting I might have missed?

A retweet that I believe you already responded to, and just now a signal boost post crossposted between my LJ & DW accounts.

I have written to your second prompt here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/70807.html

I have written to your fourth prompt here http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/74166.html

I am counting your signal boosts to make sure I'm writing you enough stories. There were the three you told me about below, then there were Twitter boosts for each of the first three stories. Were there any others somewhere elsr that I didn't see?
