It was my first challenge. So much fun to do. A good inspiration-point to jog some writing.
Fairies Masquerade 06/26/17 06:58 am
LOL that was my thought exactly Yokai! 😉 such a great challenge, you guys! Thank you writers who participated! I hope to see all of you and more for the next one!
YokaiShinari 06/25/17 04:08 pm
Funny how none of the stories is about a literal "g-spot" (I don't know yet about the Big Story, I'll get to it soon). I guess the forces are being cumulated for the smut fest, ain't they ;)
NotEnoughTimeOnMyHands 06/25/17 11:14 am
Loving the challenge responses! 😃
YokaiShinari 06/25/17 07:47 am
okay I see it now :)
YokaiShinari 06/25/17 07:01 am
how about masterlist?
AlannasTara 06/25/17 06:51 am
Submissions will be posted shortly! Stay Tuned! Woohoo!
AlannasTara 06/24/17 10:24 pm
Just 2.5 hours to the deadline for submissions. If you're going to need an extension, please PM one of the challenge mods or myself, so we can be sure to include your submission on the Masterlist!
Shae 06/23/17 08:32 pm
Sent you a message. At least I think I did, lol.
the-space-between1013 06/23/17 07:37 pm
Shae if you DO want to be added, let me know ASAP so I can add you and let me know if you're validated (meaning you don't have to wait for posting) so we can turn that off for you to set up the chap in the queue.
the-space-between1013 06/23/17 07:36 pm
Shae, no worries, you can post the first chapter if you like and simply continue writing it AFTER the challenges are posted. Many do that. They don't have to be one shots or all completely done by the date of release
Shae 06/23/17 06:41 pm
I so wanted to participate in the challenge, but RL and Cindy have really limited my writing time this past week. Unless I experience a sudden surge in creativity overnight, I just don't see how I can finish what I've been working on in time. Guess it's a good thing I didn't officially commit. ;)
AlannasTara 06/23/17 05:59 pm
Woot!! Validation has been turned off for those who are participating in the Challenge. You may begin to upload your submissions. If anyone would like to participate and you haven't done so yet, please notify an admin that you wish to participate. :-)
marybethorama 06/22/17 10:57 am
361 words into the G-spot challenge and I'm on Word 1. I think I'll make the length requirement ;)
CharlotteAshmore 06/21/17 03:04 pm

Marie1063 06/21/17 03:03 pm

YES, thanks to our awesome new challenge mods Challenges are BACK BABY.
The (hopefully not so elusive) G-Spot Challenge, aka 2017's First Summer Survival Challenge
IT’S TIME TO SHARPEN YOUR PENCILS AND LET OUT YOUR MUSES TO PLAY
We know it’s been some time since our last challenge but good things come to those who wait, right? Due to real life having all of us chasing our own tails it’s been some time since the last challenge, but we hope y’all are still properly motivated to get back into the groove of things.
For this challenge we want to try something (hopefully) fun and well… challenging.
As the title hints at, this challenge revolves around the great, giving and gripping letter G. We want you to use the random word generator, see the link below, grab a bag of six words starting with the letter G and write a story incorporating these words featuring our favorite couple.
I’m sure you always had the strong urge to explain what:
(as an example only. Get your own words.)
have to do with Carol and Daryl.Or how about giving your random words a McReedus spin? The result can be funny, angst-y or steamy (if you take the challenge title literally) for as long as it features your random words.
I really hope we can interest you in giving this a go. Carol and Daryl on the show might still be waiting for their (oh so deserved) happy ending but you get the chance to write them one right here and now, or if it’s not a happy end this time, then show us what makes their relationship so special and unique.
You can find the random word generator here: here:
To sum up this challenge in a nutshell:
Challenge Dates: submission date Saturday, June 24th; publication date Sunday, June 25th
Open to: Fan Fiction (Caryl AND McReedus)
(no fanart or videos this time. Look out for July and August Chalenges if that's your thing!))
THE PROMPT: G-Spot challenge (a mixed bag of words starting with the letter G)
You can basically do with these words whatever you like to, but remember, this is a Caryl archive, so your story has to prominently feature both Daryl and Carol or McReedus.
THE DEADLINE: All submissions must be turned in by midnight Pacific Time on June 24th.
Send a PM to Sira, the-space-between1013, or silversundown on the Nine Lives site that you want to enter the challenge. Even if you're not sure you'll have anything ready in time - let us know you're planning on it. YOU MUST DO THIS TO BE INCLUDED.
WRITE! Stories must be at least 100 words.
Multiple entries are allowed!
Due to the nature of the prompt this challenge is only open for fanfiction.
Do not upload it yet! Wait until Saturday, June 24th to upload your fic – just like in challenges past, we will be suspending automatic validation for that day for all authors who enter the challenge. (This is one of the main reasons why you need to let an admin know you'll be participating.
Submission Day is June 24th – post your fic. It will not appear on the archive, but will enter our validation queue. Make sure you submit it under the Nine Lives Challenge category!
Publication Day is Sunday, June 25th – We will post the master list and all of the challenges entries so everything shows up at once. That way, we’re all surprised by what we get to read!
Any challenge fics posted before June 24th will be deleted. IF FOR SOME REASON you are unable to post on the 24th, please send a PM to one of the challenge mods - we will work with you.
And now a sneak preview of the Summer Survival Series Challenges coming up:
July - Smutfest! Yes, it's time to visit your favorite challenge theme again to create a sizzling hot July for Nine Lives.
August - 50 First Dates! Inspired by the movie of the same name, we want you to give us every possible Caryl first date imaginable.

Next Thursday! June 8th! Caryl Writers' Chat Room! Be there! 10 pm Eastern Daylight Time (check the Time Zone Converter in the left hand bar, right under "Events", to find your own local time.)
We're going to be talking about how to put together scenes, which are the building blocks for a story - segments that need to have their form, stability and cohesion or your "building" will fall down.
Readers welcome, as always!
