#Prose-ject

For anyone new to me (kiwi-damnation) or ProjectDFC, I am all about creating challenges that inspire and educate writers while allowing a community atmosphere for us to all thrive. I want to create an environment where we all evolve and feel somewhat befuddled because it is only in mild discomfort that we grow as people and as artists.


ProjectDFC was founded to reinvigorate the world of fixed form poetry and allow more poets to expand their minds and abilities to encompass meter, refrains, syllabic count and many other restrictive poetic devices that do not exist in free verse poetry. It was built to restore a connection to our global written history and to rebuild our love of the written word.


From this, Prose-ject is born with a very similar image and objective, only in prose. Prose-ject is about stimulating new ways of thinking and opportunities for new experiences as a prose writer. We can often get stuck in our own voice and fail to renew and revitalise our work with new pathways and ideas. Writer's block is a common result of this as writing the same things doesn't really allow creativity to flow. It is in variety that we flourish and blossom as writers.


So with all of this, I present Prose-ject, a new place for inspiration and art creation. This is not a submission plot for whatever you are feeling at the time. This is a place where we challenge you and you rise to meet this. We only accept submissions for our particular challenges and anything inappropriate (anything that harasses another deviant) will not be accepted.

A few things need to be decided on but here is what we have so far:


January: Character Creation Month
February: Flash Lit February
March: Meet Your Maker
April: Avoid the Adverb April
May: Mission Mimicry

June: Prose-ject 2016

July: Little Prose (1000 words)

Prose-ject S.T.O.R.M
August: 15k H.A.I.L
September: 25k F.I.R.E
October: 35k S.A.N.D

November: NaNoWriMo 50k

December: :new: Fan Fiction Freakout

Xena's Sword by OneWithTheStars

Hello everyone!  Hi!  OneWithTheStars here and welcome to the third week of the namesake event here at Prose-ject: Prose-ject 2019!  :shake sword:

PROSE-JECT 2019

Just what is the Prose-ject?  Well, it's a fun way of getting yourself to write every day for the month!  (Basically our version of Flash Fiction Month, which happens in July, but here at Prose-ject, we want to get you into the daily writing flow in preparation for our grand and glorious gauntlet coming up over the following months, working up the word counts to prepare those daring souls that partake in NaNoWriMo in November...or simply for those preferring the lighter word counts than 50k, so stay tuned for the upcoming STORMs).  We don't have a cap on the word count for the Prose-ject, so push your daily writings as far as you'd like to take them and crush the standard Flash Fic word limit if you wish.

However, we do have a 250-word minimum for each work.  Writing something daily can be rather daunting; ideas don't always come freely.  No worries!  We're here to provide you with a few prompts each day to hopefully inspire you with an idea.  In past years, kiwi-damnation has put together an amazing set of five different forms of prompts for every day of the month.  Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to provide the level of variety, my lack of free time doesn't facilitate what I'd like to do, so this year will be a lighter version with three different styles of prompts to choose from.  We're all about promoting love for other deviants' works here on DA, so every day, one visual work and one literary work that either has received a Daily Deviation (DD) or I think should have one will be featured here.  The third prompt option will be a random word or set of words.

:shake sword: by xxhiccupxxRequirements:      :shake sword: by xxhiccupxx

A. Each daily work must be a minimum of 250 words.
B. Use one (or more) of the daily prompts provided.

:shake sword: by xxhiccupxxForms of Daily Prompts:      :shake sword: by xxhiccupxx

1. a visual piece from a fellow deviant
2. a literary piece from a fellow deviant
3. a word/phrase prompt

Howdy! I'm a bit curious about your group - it seems a bit different from other writing-specific groups. Is this more of a "to help folks write" than a "host write here" group?

Exactly :). We are about creating more writing diversity in this group and allowing people to fully flex their literary muscles as it were. We don't accept blanket general submissions, only submissions to the various challenges we run every month :). Does this interest you?

Yes and no - the issue I foresee is that I have a tendency to get fixated on particular projects - in April I'm planning to write 30,000 words of a novella and putting 'em up on Wattpad in an ideally-not-futile attempt to garner more readers; over summer I intend to start-and-finish a novel I've been plotting out for a few months now. I have a bit of a single-track mind, as it stands.

That's ok. The challenges are opt-in, so you can choose to do them or to not :)

It is more for helping writers than just collecting art, yes. Through each month's prompt on different writing elements, and leading up to NaNo in November, we aim to help writers evolve and eventually complete their story.
