Would anyone like to see the Writing Challenge again?

I'd like the writing challenges I wrote for to be voted on, no chance of that happening though, huh? :oh-no:

What's the, um, May challenge then, NickyDude? I'm always ready :cool:

Thanks, Bondo!

Now would be an ideal time for procreation.

I'll give the voting until the end of May and go from there.

I dunno, I don't think there'll be a huge amount of interest just yet.
Do you know who I am?!

Surely nine people wanting it to come back (and presumably willing to participate) is enough to make a June one worthwhile?
Game in the works - Project Clocks - on hold for a bit.
Game finished - I am the Law for the OddComp. Looking forward to finishing Clocks so I can show what I can really do!
Current focus - Some microIF. Short experiments to test ideas and actually release something!

9 might want it back, but how many will enter? :(

That's the real question.

I would be quite happy to see it come back, but felt that my integrity wouldn't let me vote for anything other than "Not Bothered" by virtue of the fact that I couldn't honestly say that I would enter if it did come back.

I kind of miss the Writing Challenge, I hope you start it up again. I could really use something like this to practice on anyway, I feel like my writing skills have atrophied...

We could always have another poll...?


...or we could just have the challenge and find out.

So...what is the writing challenge?

You can look at the pinned 'August Writing Challenge' for an example, even though that one didn't get many posts because it's right at the point where the forum seemed to die.

Or just have the forum show older threads, it was a pretty regular thing for a long time.
