Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Writing Game 2] 1 Stolen Concept, 1 prompt, 1000 words
Welcome to the Writing Game 2! I had a lot of fun with the first, but then it died off as everyone moved on to new things. Well, maybe it's just me... but I've got a lot of free time this Summer, so I thought a sequel was in order.
The first goal here is to steal the opening from the original Writing Game thread.
[strike]NaNoWriMo[/strike] Summer has [strike]ended[/strike] begun, and with it, I'm sure a lot of people are feeling at a loss for what to do next. Those who aren't editing and even those who are can find sanctuary here. I want to start a game for us, the rules are simple, the only requirement is your time and skill.
Each day, I will post a word from the Word of the Day page on Dictionary.com, you will then have that whole day to write about that word. The objective is to write somewhere between 800 and 1,200 words about the word. This is not a hard and fast rule, you may write under 800 words, but the rest of us reserve the right to call you a wimp for it.
If you have any comments or critiques for the other entries then of course, fire away, but don't feel like it's absolutely essential you critique every single post.
The second goal here is to encourage daily writing in the fine denizens of The Writer's Block.
That said, let's get to writing.
The word for Saturday, July 3rd is Vespertine.
\VES-per-tin\ , adjective;
Of, pertaining to, or occurring in the evening.
Botany. Opening or expanding in the evening, as certain flowers.
Zoology. Becoming active in the evening, as bats and owls.
