Hello and welcome to the (hopefully) bi-weekly (i.e. every 2 weeks, not twice a week could you imagine??) short story swap! Serious writers, novelists, journalers, amateurs, bed-time story connoisseurs- everyone welcome, regardless of skill or ability!
For this swap, you will write a short story (2,000-5,000 words) for your partner using the assigned prompt, in whatever interpretation you wish!
This round's prompt is: Nest
Please include a note with your username and the swap name, and any other info about your story, INCLUDING ANY POTENTIAL TRIGGER WARNINGS.
-Swappers are welcome to type or handwrite their stories, but please make sure if it is handwritten that it is legible and falls within the word count guidelines.
-All languages are welcome, but if writing in a language other than English please make sure that the person you are sending to can read and understand that language.
-No extras are required for this swap, but feel free to include any notes or extras you feel your partner would like!
-You are more than welcome to start writing your story before the partners have been announced, but once they are please check to make sure the subject matter will be okay with your partner.
Finally, please don't use previously written material or excerpts of larger works or books you may have written. Promotional materials outside of the story are okay (to a certain extent- don't go overboard, the story should be the star of the package. For instance, a business card, promotional bookmark or a note about a blog would all be okay, but a bunch of flyers or a discount code or coupon are a bit too far- just use your common sense.) but the purpose of this swap is to stretch our writing muscles, make new writing friends and have fun, not to promote ourselves or sell books.
This swap is open to ratings 4.8 and higher and is Newbie friendly. No unexplained 3's newer than 6 months, or 1's newer than 1 year. I will be looking over the profiles of everyone who signs up, and removing anyone that doesn't fit those criteria, and doesn't have a well filled out profile. If I do remove you from this swap I will let you know why, and I will be more than willing to let you back in or include you in a future round if that reason is fixed or explained.
If you don't receive anything, please rate a 1 and let me know- I will try to angel if I can. I will try to contact those who haven't sent 1 week after the send by deadline, but past that I won't be monitoring flakers, so do let me know if you need me to angel. Please keep in mind that this is an international swap and mail is extremely slow in some places right now, so letters from some countries could take up to a few months to arrive.
Have fun everyone, and happy writing!
(And please don't hesitate to send me a note or leave a comment with any questions, queries, or qu-oncerns? (terrible, I know, I couldn't help it). I'm here to help!)
