Welcome to a brand-new year! There are a few surprises in store for FF&W in the upcoming year, and I'd like to share them with everyone to perhaps get some feedback?
1.) Reviewing Challenge
It was asked in the last Reviewing Challenge's thread about perhaps having the challenge happen more often throughout the year. Well, it's happening every third month. This means that the next reviewing challenge will be in March. Then June, September, and around again in December.
But what about the rest of the year?
2.) Writing Challenges
Every April, July, October, and possibly January (unsure as of right now due to recovery from the holidays and other events), there will be a writing challenge. These will happen in different ways. Some will be prompt challenges, where you'd have to write a short story based on a prompt given to you. Others will be free challenges (EXAMPLE) where you can pick your own goals.
The schedules of these might change due to possible Get-Togethers or other PokéCommunity-wide events.
3.) Other things
There was also talk about constant events. For example, we could do a chain story, smaller prompts, or other events to keep some activity in the off-months.
There will be a new Quick Question&Answer thread for the new year. This will be used for questions that don't require a lot of discussion.
More Writer's Lounge discussion threads will be happening. This will give members an opportunity to learn more about each other, and perhaps create more of a community feel.
4.) Poetry Subforum
The Poetry subforum will get a brand-new Poem of the Week thread to hopefully boost activity. Further discussions about this will happen when the thread for that is posted.
And that is, so far, what is planned for FF&W in 2013. Feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, or just give general support so I don't feel like I'm just taking to my four Furbys.
