So is it Sunday night and Monday morning, or Saturday night and Sunday morning? xD

And do you post everything in the end or are you allowed to post chapters during the week?

What this makes no sense.

And people post bits of their work, so I think it would be ok to post bits of yours.

12:00/01 AM Sunday morning. (Yes, I know days technically begin at 12:01, but it's still pretty much midnight.) As in, you have the entire day of Sunday to begin. Otherwise, it's not really seven days long.

As long as you have all seven thousand words posted by 11:59 PM on Saturday, go for it any way you like.

Also, the new prompt is up. Good luck, guys.

Sadly I don't really understand the prompt.

But, I think have an idea.

Can I use an idea that I've already started before if I write from scratch?

Yes, this idea shall be grand, but it might be a little common.

Chucho, if it is from scratch it shouldn't matter, but refer to the first page if you need another answer.

I might have to sit this one out, my mental state hasn't been the best, and well, the prompt boil has me in a deadlock.

Keep in mind that you don't have to follow the prompt, it's just a suggestion. I certainly didn't have fire in mind when I wrote my entry for the first week, although I did end up putting fire in one part.

If you do want to follow it, keep in mind the different definitions. There's boiling as in a liquid changing to a gas state, boiling as an "boiling with anger," boils as in the nasty skin inflammation, boiling as in a way to prepare food, the food itself after being boiled, and so on.

As for this prompt, you're a girl after my own heart, aren't you Val? I could have so much fun with "boil" but unfortunately I'm still not ready to enter again.

So long as not a word of it has been written before this week, go for it.

Shrike's on the money here. The prompt is really more for those of us who have complete writer's block and/or want to play this game like it was the FFC we used to have around here. Shortly put, the prompt is actually optional; it's not at all required to follow it. In fact, if you're working with another prompt set (like from an LJ challenge comm) and would rather run through a week or two with it instead, by all means, go for it.

But yeah, don't be intimidated by the fact that the prompt for this week is "boil." It's just there for the ones who would otherwise write about zombie love... atop a cherry sundae dripping with melancholy chocolate. Because anything to get to that seven-thousand mark helps. (So does, if anyone's curious, slight carbon monoxide poisoning.)

If I decide to write a script, do I write 3 pages a day, or 1000 words a day?

Daily word counts are completely up to the writer, regardless of the style they're using, so long as the total equals at least seven thousand words.

Also, as another heads up (which you probably already know about, but I'm just restating for the sake of doing my duty to discourage people from enticing Asty to go on a bloody rampage through the forum), remember to read the forum rules concerning scripts.

I don't think it's well written, but it's more than dialog.

It's just that Script Frenzy is 100 pages instead of 50k words. That's all.

Yeah, it is, but I figured it'd just be simpler to keep the rules down to pretty much a word count. Alternatively, I could go with keeping it prose (short stories or chaptered fics) only, but I'd like to see how you do with writing a script for it first before deciding.

Currently sitting at 3185 words after one days' work. Sitting down to write some more now. The further ahead of this I am, the happier I'll be! The prompt will feature, but you'll have to read carefully in order to get it!

Aaaaand time! Congrats to Sparkling Dragon for this week. Sorry to Dutchesse, but your fic fell roughly 1000 words short before the deadline. It's still good, though, and if you'd like to finish it, go for it.

Also, the new prompt is up on time this week. I decided to be cheesy.

Not if you're braindead from repeated blunt trauma to the head, sweetheart. Am I going to have to clean up someone else's blood and brains on those lovely desks again?

It's alright. I'm actually in bed right now, so headdesking doesn't hurt as much as it normally would.
