Slight Hiatus

  • Mar. 4th, 2015 at 8:48 AM
Good morning, everyone! I'm putting the community on hiatus until Sunday or Monday. There's a big event at work coming up on Saturday that's my primary focus.

Hope you all have a terrific rest of your week!

Good afternoon, everyone!

Just a heads up that this community will be on hiatus from August 17 - 25th.

I will be on vacation with my Mom and will have limited internet access!

Please, enjoy the past prompts and we will be up and running again on the 26th/27th.

Happy August!

Hey everyone! Just letting you know that the community will be on hiatus between June 28 - July 2nd. We will return to normal posting schedule (sort of) on July 3rd.

Until then, there are loads of prompts to look at in the archives and I hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

Mod Note: Semi-Hiatus

  • May. 13th, 2014 at 8:48 AM
Good morning, everyone!
Just letting you know that starting Monday (May 19th), this community may be taking a two-week hiatus. I will be out of the country and may not get the time to post a prompt.

If there aren't any prompts posted by either myself or [personal profile] defy_gravity, you will have 1,400 prompts to play with.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

1,000th Prompt!

  • Apr. 7th, 2013 at 3:45 PM
Tomorrow, I will post the 1,000th prompt! I'm amazed by this mostly because it's the first time that I've reached such a milestone in a community that I've been a part of since it's inception. Thank you to everyone who have submitted prompts before and who have stuck around during those days where there could be days/weeks/even months that go by before a new prompt is posted.

If you've worked on or created a 1,000 word fic/poem/etc based on any of the past/present prompts, please feel free to post a snippet or link us to your fic tomorrow! I'll do a special round up tomorrow if we have any submissions.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!



Mod: Upcoming 1,000th Prompt

  • Jan. 2nd, 2013 at 8:23 AM
Back in May of 2009, when [personal profile] stardoll created this community, I doubt either of us knew how long this community would stick around and how many prompts would actually be posted. We had hopes that it would be long lasting but I think we can all agree that after a certain number of years, some communities just start to fizzle out. I can't speak for her but I know I am so thrilled and excited to see how far this community has come and at the sheer number of inspiring prompts we have on the master list! I know, for a while there, posting was sporadic and there would often be days that go by that I didn't post anything but I am so glad that you stuck around and continued to get inspired by the different prompts!

Needless to say, I can't believe that in 95 days, we will have reached 1,000 prompts!

Holy crap!

For this momentous occasion, as suggested by [personal profile] butterflydreaming, this is your challenge:

On Sunday, April 7th, we'll have officially posted 1,000 prompts in [community profile] daily_prompt. You are to use any past or current prompt on the master list* to create a 1,000 word fic/poem/play/rp snippet/muse reflection/creative piece. The idea is to share a snippet of it with the community once the prompt goes up. That gives you 95 days from today. That evening, I will create a special round-up of any submissions we get. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Sounds fun, right? I know I'm going to try this one out myself.

I can't thank you more for sticking around everyone.

I appreciate every single one of you for being part of the [community profile] daily_prompt community and helping it to keep it going!

* I will update this within the week. Apparently 'never leaving it this long again' means...I will be doing it again until I can't leave it any longer. SO! it will be updated and I'll let you know when it happens.

Welcome to [community profile] daily_prompt!

Once a day (give or take), I'll be posting a prompt. That prompt may be a word, a song, a picture, whatever. After that, it's up to YOU to figure out what you'll do with it. Whether you feel inspired to write 5 words or 500...whether you decide to write original fiction, fanfiction, poetry, or song lyrics is up to you! Essentially, Daily Prompt is your community! I'm just giving you that extra kick-in-the-pants that a lot of us authors need to get to a running start.

All I ask in terms of rules is to use your own discretion when replying to a prompt. Daily Prompt is a Rated M (mature, not adult) community, so explicit adult content should be placed in your own personal journals. Other than that, rules belong elsewhere.

Have a suggestion for future prompts? Please, leave a comment on this post and who knows? Your suggestions might become a prompt for Daily Prompt! This Mod loves all the suggestions she can get.

Have fun!

A note from your Daily Prompt Mod!

  • Mar. 21st, 2012 at 9:56 AM
Hey everyone!
So finally I had time to go in and actually update the Master Prompt List. You can find it here!

As always, if you see something missing or if a link is missing, please let me know! I know one thing for certain - I am NOT going to go six months without updating that monster again.

Starting next Thursday, there will be at least a week hiatus. I'm going in for a surgery and will more than likely be AFK. Knowing me, I might still be around but who knows what will come of that. In the mean time, you're free to go back through the prompts (ALL 600+) and see what speaks to you.

If there is someone who in the meantime would like to post prompts for the week/two weeks that I am gone, please PM me!

Thank you for being a part of the [community profile] daily_prompt community!

Mod Post: Opinions

  • Jun. 7th, 2010 at 11:35 AM
Hey everyone,
So as you can probably already tell, I've created a master list of the previous prompts and you can find it here or on the tags page under the tag: prompts!master_list. This list will be updated weekly (Saturday) with that weeks prompts with the links going to those entries. If you have a response to any of the prompts from last year to this year, feel free to comment on the corresponding post and it will be included in the next Weekly Roundup!

I was curious what your opinions were regarding the format of the prompts.
Do you like the image style or would you prefer no image and just the word(s)/lyric(s) bold and/or larger? Please let me know which you prefer as soon as you can! If it doesn't matter then [personal profile] stardoll and I will create a way that is easy and clean!

The tags will be changing soon - organized by what kind of prompt it is (ie: lyrics, photograph, quotes and words). The profile is also changing accordingly, information being added such as the master list and our new weekly round-ups!

There will be a new post momentarily that will be under the tag: Mod!Contact so if you have a question/concern/suggestion you can contact us there! It hasn't been decided if comments will be screened but if they aren't and it's something you don't want to ask out loud, feel free to PM us!

I believe that is it for now.
I hope everyone has a great week and thanks for sticking around!
