Good evening, my fellow a/fic/ionados.
With tentative weariness, I bring you my own malformed brainchild. “1K, Every Day” is an endeavor to produce consistent and cohesive prose. The main thing is quite simple:
Write one-thousand words everyday.
The minutiae are far more dubious, however. It is of import that the produce displayed in this thread be of decent quality, and that there be some semblance of purport among the drivel. In my own attempt, I will be following several complex and arcane rules, which I will refrain from reproducing here in full. A few noteworthy ones, however, are that (1) I’m working from a character list of thirty pre-selected characters, (2) the majority of entries will be in first person, and (3) what I write about each day will be determined by numbers produced from random.org's whitenoise-based random number generator.
Characterization is one of the principle tenants of enjoyable fiction. This exercise is designed to develop skills in characterization, good writing habits, and an ability to think on one’s feet, as it were. This is by no means an exclusive exercise. In fact, I have made it public not only for my own benefit but also that of others—that they might also desire to participate.
Now, I don’t expect anyone to participate with me, nor do I expect someone who does wish to participate to follow the rules and formulae I have set for myself. But if you wish, you can post your own gorrowful crap alongside mine, as about anything is allowed which does not break site rules (do note, however, that this is a non-mature thread). Any wordcount, any consistency, and any subject matter.
I will start my own adventure at a pre-determined date (which I’ve yet to bother to look up), and I will edit this OP with more information as it becomes available.
