Welcome to Inspirational Friday 2019.
Inspirational Friday is a chance for members to write pieces of fiction based upon pre-set topics. The goal of this thread is to do just what it advertises: inspire. Whether it is to expand on your own headcanon of Chaos in a broad view, or to develop a vast narrative of a personal warband, Inspirational Friday is a place to share your work with others. As in the previous Inspiration Fridays, images accompanying entries are most welcome.
I, Scourged, will select the topic for each period. However it is all of you that will act as the adjudicators. The winner of each current topic will be select by the winner of the previous topic. This was the format adopted since IF2016, and has been a welcomed change ever since. Should any winner wish to turn down their duty, then task shall revert to Scourged for that entry. Said winners will earn themselves one of the coveted Octed amulets for proud display in their signature.
As with IF2018, each topic will have two or more weeks to submit an entry. I plan to continue the traditional deadline of Friday evenings, inkeeping with the previous years of IF.
1. Many of our members are non-native English speakers so grammar, spelling and punctuation should not be too harshly judged. That said, members are encouraged to type their entries in a word processor program which can help them with their spelling and grammar.
2. The judge should choose the one entry which, in their mind, exemplifies the IF topic of that week. Not necessarily the most action-packed, the longest, the coolest, etc.
3. The judge may, when posting their judgement, choose to give feedback on each entry. What they liked and didn't like, what they wanted to see more or less of.
Past Inspiration Friday Topics
Links to previous incarnations of Inspiration Friday, for reference:
Under Brother Nihm:
While each topic will close (with respect to who can win the medal for that theme) after a set period, members who find themselves inspired to write about previous themes are most welcome to post these as and when they can, but I ask that you please title your entry accordingly (e.g. “Chaos Warship”).
Inspirational Friday: Timelines of Treachery is a companion thread to this (and past and future Inspirational Friday main threads) for those who wish to organize their IF entries and present their warband's timeline. This was an idea that Kierdale introduced, and is a thread to help both readers and writers get their heads around which stories come where. By all means please add your own timelines as and when you can.
May the Dark Gods inspire you all to greatness.
