Highlander Winter Story Exchange 2010  
I wanted to share that hlh_shortcuts, the "Highlander Holiday Shortcuts" community, is holding its annual winter story exchange (500 words minimum, no maximum).  Check out the sign-up post for rules.  The timeline is:
  • 09/28-10/10 Sign up.
  • 10/15 Receive assignment.
  • 12/10 Submit story.
  • 12/10-12/15 Read stories.

I've thought a good deal about signing up to write for it myself, but I probably won't.  Perhaps I'll read this year, and think again about playing next year?  (If any of you have participated previously and would like to share your impressions, please chime in.  Thanks!)

In other ficathon news, the [community profile] last_writes mod announced that there is no deadline after all to claim a prompt in their current ficathon (this is the community for canceled vampire fandoms including FK).

I participated the first year, and decided, upon reflection, I'm not a good challenge participant :) Though it is true that giving is better than receiving.

Thank you. Yes, similarly, my success with challenges has varied a lot.

When I look at the current sign-ups there, I see ... a uniformity, perhaps? ... that is a bit startling to someone used to playing in FK, where ten random fans will have ten contradictory interpretations. :-)

I haven't looked at this year's sign-ups, but yes, I do think that's a marked difference between the two fandoms. As much as I adore wrting HL fic, I always feel slightly out of place in the fandom. Strange, but true :)
