April 5+1 Challenge

Hey guys and welcome to April (I swear this isn't an April Fools Joke, scouts honour!)

I am incharge of running one of the challenges for you to complete this month and it is the 5+1 Challenge

I have decided to run this like it has done before so ...

Below the cut are 38 Five + One prompts which I have "borrowed" from various places. I have taken out the identifying information (character names, fandoms, information specific to fandom/character.)

NOW you get to claim one of the prompts. Post a comment with the prompt number you are claiming as your very own. Include as much or as little information as you want - the fandom, the characters, no info at all except the prompt number. If you want two prompts, claim them both. If none of the prompts floats your creative boat, let me know. I will try to come up with one that works for you. OR you can make up your own prompt. More than one person can claim the same prompt as well

SO - claim your prompt(s). Write!!! Create graphics!!!!! Post by April 30. Be rewarded! I am not putting any word counts or graphic limits on, create as much as you can (could be a good thing to do for part of the 100 in 100 challenge ... just a suggestion)

Weekend Challenge

Hello peeps!

I was going to make this challenge about pranks, but LJ had other ideas. So, the challenge is going to be a movie quote challenge. Give me a number between one and ten and I'll give you a quote from one of my favorite movies.

Rewards will either be a drabble of your choice or a 100 words on one of my many wips.

Let's go have fun making all the graphics and words, and make April a kick ass month.

Birthdays: April

We start off the month with a bang with our resident writer, agdhani!

Agdhani's birthday is on 05 April, so there's still a little time if you want to make her something! Why not head over to browse her wishlist?

After that, it's time for katleept's birthday, on 18 April, with certainly a lot to choose from!

Coming up the close of the month is mierke's birthday, on 27 April, but it's certainly not too early to start! Have a look at mierke's wishlist here.

comments are screened, so leave a note here if you're making anything for either of them!
