Themes

Hi guys! Hope you’re all ready for the next month here at ShoStoWriMo, but for now we’ve got a new concept to explore, and that concept is known as “themes.”

For each month of the year, a theme will be set. That theme can act as a sort of prompt for your story or stories that month, giving you a direction to work towards so you don’t find yourself stuck and staring at a blank page come day one. Of course, we understand that contestants will have ideas of their own in mind, and that is why themes are optional, meaning that you can use them if you wish, or if you don’t want to, then you don’t have to, and it won’t hinder your ability to win.

If you’re unclear of exactly what a theme is, here is an example. If the theme for the upcoming month was “love”, then you would write a short story involving love, whether that involves two people falling in love, the love of friends, the love of a place, or anything else that your mind cares to wander to. Just let your imagination go wild!

Themes for the upcoming month will be posted in the RSVP entry, and when you reply with your goal for the month you will also be asked to state whether or not you will be following the theme for one (or more) of your short story or stories that month.

If there's anything you feel we've left unanswered, feel free to ask myself (xxjessss ) or Kari (xx_karifox_xx  and therealkarity ).
