  1. can you make separate threads each week?

    So the one up now would be “Writing Prompt 8/10”. That way, if there are hundreds of fans rushing to give their ideas, you can pick which week you want to look through. Actually, it might be better to do “Writing Prompt 8/10: Religions” or whatever.

  2. It looks as if that will proliferate threads under the Writing Group — there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to start a thread under the current one. Or perhaps ask for a separate forum one level up, so that the weekly threads would all be under that forum instead of eating the Writing Group?

    Might be easier to use the LJ version? http://community.livejournal.com/writingexcused/ is available.

  3. First, if you don’t have an LJ membership, get one. I think if you go to http://www.livejournal.com/ you’ll find the necessary form.

    Then you can reply to the current message, or any message. I’ve got the community set to allow posting by any registered user.

    You can also start a new topic via the post links up at the top.

  4. I would’ve actually suggested a WordPress setup like this one, just ’cause that way you don’t have to register. But hey, the LJ one’s there. :D

  5. For the comments on different forums I think, for now at least, someone can just create a different thread for each writing prompt. If they get popular enough I’ll consider making a Writing Prompt board.

    If one isn’t up for the week in question feel free to just make one. I say this because we probably won’t remember to do so.

  6. Hello,

    I am a 3rd year student and I will be creating an interactive narrative website. As I have taken part in creative writing courses and websites that act as a hub for writers I know that the key problem for a writer is finding inspiration. I would like to create a site that was filled with triggers; art, music, quotes, and games that kick start story ideas. Users could come to the site to get an idea and then write or after the post of a piece of art or a piece of music they will be asked to ‘find the story’.

    Does anyone have any comments on this idea?
