Note: THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION RIGHT NOW. NO PRIZES ARE WON. THIS MAY CHANGE IN THE FUTURE.
I recently partnered up with someone to write a story. I find that working with a partner is more fun that working alone. I decided to see how it would play out for everyone else. The only thing is, you will be paired with someone randomly. This will work similar to how the raffles that are held in the threads are chosen. You will be given a number and then you will be paired with someone by a random number generator and then you will choose a prompt together or have one chosen for you if you can't decide.

I don't want it to be too difficult for people so I will be making sure that you are literate enough for this. You don't have to be overly formal but it would be better so that it doesn't cause your partner trouble. PM me a sample and then I will accept or reject you. After you receive the acceptance PM, your name will be put in the list. If you are partial to a specific genre and you are ABSOLUTELY sure you cannot do anything but that genre, please add that to your application so I can place you with like-minded people.

The accepted applicants will be placed in categories. If you can do any type of genre, you will be put in the General Category. If you can only do horror, you be placed in the Horror Category and so forth. You will be drawn from those areas and then PM'd with who you are working with. I intended this to be just for fun, but if you would like to add some competition to it, feel free to donate some items for prizes and then we can vote on the best works for each category. If you are interested in helping me keep track of things, please PM me with the title "Assistant" and then tell me what you want to help with along with why you think you are good at that and if you are joining, Just to be clear, just because you are an assistant does not mean you will be accepted as a participant or chosen as a winner. I am not going to be biased but I still appreciate the help.

If you want to do extra work you can choose up to 4 prompts.

Categories and prompts will be posted below.
Questions should come directly to me.

Application:
1. User name and ID#
2. Category you are going to write from
3. Paragraph count you think you can do.
4. Sample of your writing. Doesn't have to be the same category that you are going to be writing but that is preferred.
