3. While this group is primarily for amateur writers seeking exposure amongst their peers, this is not a storage space for your work. If you join only to submit a few pieces, then leave, your work will be removed from our galleries and you'll be placed on a "Group-ban" list. No exceptions.

4. Over everything else: have fun!

5. Having said that (#4), if you begin to have problems with other members, PLEASE let the admins here know. If we can't solve things for you, we recommend you take the next logical step: reporting the problem to a dA admin.

As I'm sure you're all aware at this point, BunnyFrooFroo, our intrepid, enthusiastic, and lovely co-admin has been absent for quite some time. This is why the prompt has been stuck on "Red" since mid-December.

Today, I'm taking the initiative by announcing a brand new, shiny prompt! *shinesparklesparkle*

A week and a half ago, Lucasfilm, in conjunction with Disney, announced the main cast for Star Wars: Episode VII. The following day, Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm Ltd., announced that at that point, only the six major motion pictures (episodes 1-6) would be considered canonically accurate, in order to give J.J. Abrams more creative control over the next few films. (Yes, there will be future written works, games, and TV shows, but none that pull their stories from pre-existing materials.)

This means that almost 40 years worth of officially recognized and formerly canon material in the form of videogames, TV shows, and full-length novels are now considered nothing more than glorified fan-fiction.

Well, this week, I want you to polish off your lightsabers, prep your ship's hyperspace engines, and prepare to screw up interplanetary politics! Star Wars is this week's prompt. And, may the Force be with you always!

did the prompt change? IS  it the "She found it at the back of a drawer, buried under knick knacks and mouse-gnawed papers."?
Doomsday-Prophyt Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
That prompt is just for the Writeroom in general
