A cruel challenge for the cruelest month?
For this month's challenge, all you have to do is write something about an animal of your choice. You can even write about more than one animal, just as long as they talk to each other on at least one occasion in your story. Creatures such as giraffes, panthers, Air Jaws, Mayor Bloomberg, sparrows and DINOSAURS! are all good for this one. Stories about dinosaurs will receive 10,000 bonus points.
Each month a new challenge will be posted to the discussion with rules for the month. This is a public group and all stories written for the challenge will be posted to the Fn main page and then added to the group.
At the end of the month, the story with the most faves wins the challenge.
The winner of the challenge gets to post the rules for the next month's challenge.
In the event of a tie, all tying winners get to post a challenge for the next month, with challenges run simultaneously. The challenger with the most faves, of all the simultaneous challenges for that month, gets to post the rules for the next month's challenge.
And always remember: fiction is not a competitive sport.
