    Right–what I intended from the name was to invoke the idea of writing a short piece, not necessarily writing "quickly." (I'd also point out that I had only intended it for that particular thread. Other challenges don't need to observe the same limit–though it's never bad exercise, especially if you're writing with an eye toward magazine publication.) I'll continue stating the "rules" for any thread I begin; others should feel free to issue their own challenges.

    That sounds awesome. I just love the idea. The idea of placing challenges is great.

    I have a possible suggestion for the Challenge forum. I think there are lots of fun exercises and such that have been posted there, but perhaps it's getting buried in the Showcase forum. Is there a way to make the Challenge forum a sub-forum of Games instead? I think it would get more traffic there. Just a thought! Thanks!

    Hmm… thought, but I'm not sure it would accomplish the goal. I imagine most people who go to the "Games" forum do so to talk about games, not to find places to write. Perhaps elevating it to full forum status under "Fantasy Writing," so that it shows up next to the "Showcase" rather than being included in it?

    Actually, at this stage of our development it may be even better to make Challenges a top-level forum of its own.

    What does everyone think about that?
     
  8. Sounds like a good plan.

    I'm good either way.

    EDIT: Just realized we were proposing the same thing at the same time, BD—so don't be confused by the "either way" reference.

    We're totally on the same wavelength. :)

    I've elevated it to a top-level forum.

    Guess that makes it time for me to think up another challenge… haven't done one in a while. Let's see, now.…
