Questing for Challenges! (or: Prompt Hunting)

  • Post category:Writing
No Plot No Problem, Bird by Bird, Writing Down the Bones, Page After Page

One of nice things about the whole LiveJournal implosion was that I’ve started playing around on Dreamwidth again and that means challenges comms! Of course finding said communities is slightly more of a slog that I’d anticipated. In order to keep track of what I’ve found (and when they post challenges), I’ve started the list below. I’m also including prompt challenges outside of Dreamwidth, but those are much harder to find.

Please let me know if you know of any active prompt communities! I’m primarily looking for things that aren’t limited to one fandom (or limited to fan fiction). Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
