Prompts Call
kajones_writing
From now until the 4th of February I am open for prompts on the subject of Imbolc and New Years. If you're no good at prompts then you can leave me a random number and I'll write a story based on one of these themes for the character. You may also leave a prompt with a random number (or more) and I will write a story based on that prompt with those random characters in. Leave me a selection of all three if you wish.

For every prompt and random number I receive I will write 500 words, which will be posted. Each additional 500 words will cost £1.50, up to a limit of 6000 words (£18.00), if you want the words posted. Credits can also be used to buy extra words, 3 credits per 1000 words - up to a limit of 6000 words (18 credits), but in this case the words won't be posted and they'll be sent to you as a PDF.

Anyone who posts a link for this prompts session will receive another 500 words, which can be used for a prompt of their choice (this can be their own prompt or a story that they like that has been written during this prompts session). For every five people that post a link I'll write one extra story of at least 1000 words.

If I get £10 I will post one new piece of bonus material, which will be posted as soon as it is written, chosen by the donor whose donation gets me to this point.
If I get £20 I will write a story of at least 1000 words, which will be posted as soon as it is written, chosen again by the donor whose donation gets me to this point.
If I get £40 I will make all the stories written to prompts into an ebook, which will be emailed to everyone who has donated.
If I get £50 I will write one new piece of bonus material that will only be available in the ebook.
If I get £60 I will write one story of at least 1000 words that will only be available in the ebook.
For every £10 after the £60 I will add another bonus story or new piece of bonus material to the ebook.
If I get £100 I will make a second ebook with at least 10 new stories in, of at least 1000 words, set in a collection of the donors choice, and 2 pieces of bonus material, which will be emailed to all the donors.
If I get £150 I will add at least three new stories which will only be available in the ebook and one piece of bonus material.

Everyone who prompts or leaves a random number will be entered into a draw to name a character in a collection chosen at random.

Everyone who donates will be entered into a draw to name a character in a collection of their choice. Any donation will get your name entered once and then for every £3 donated the donor will have their name entered again, up to a limit of eleven times for £30, and for every 5 donors there will be another draw, up to a limit of ten draws (50 donors).

The same person will not be eligible to win both the prompter's draw and the donor's draw, but it will be possible for someone to win more than once in the donor's draw. If this happens, due to new naming rules, the donor will be able to name more than one character or they can choose to receive a story of at least 1000 words about their newly named character.

If I reach £50 in donations I will also enter all donors into a draw in which they can name a permanent stucture. Any donation will get your name entered once and then for every £3 donated the donor will have their name entered again, up to a limit of eleven times for £30, and for every 10 donors there will be another draw, up to a limit of five draws (50 donors). Anyone who wins this draw more than once will be able to choose between naming a second permanent structure and receiving a story of at least 1000 words about their named permanent structure.

Imbolc (Pagan holiday, Pagans): Rebirth. Consider Anna as "adopted" given that she doesn't remember her birth parents, whom she thinks of as Charlotte's parents. Will they ever mend that breach, or will she eventually go looking for a family that really accepts her? Will Anna want something to cement her new relationship with Lloyd, or be content with the carryover from being genetic siblings?

Candlemas (historic Christian holiday, Donor House): One of the older vampires celebrates Candlemas, rather baffling the younger vampires and humans.

Chinese New Year (Donor House): A new regular at the Donor House speaks only Chinese. This could be a vampire, a donor, hired help, etc. How do people deal with the language barrier?

New Year (World Walkers): How and when is New Year celebrated in this collection? Are all the worlds 'in synch' timewise or are they on different cycles?


I'll be linking this post on LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Facebook.

Oh, and just to annoy the heck out of anyone in Donor House who might perchance speak Chinese: it's not Mandarin. It's Min Be.

Here from the link on ysabethwordsmith's journal and very intrigued.
Since I'm not familiar with your settings I'll leave a random number prompt and see what happens. :)

The promise of the seeds sleeping dormant in the ground (literally or metaphorically).

The fire of poetry.
