Discussing: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

Last year, HASA ran a story pledge challenge for the month of January to raise funds to cover hosting costs for 2013.

We are starting 2014 with another, similar challenge - Sun, Shadow and Smaug - to follow the course of the newest movie. Bilbo journeys from the sunny slopes of the Misty Mountains into the deep shadows of Mirkwood, emerging from them to continue to the desolation of the Dragon.

Gone are the certainties of the civilized Shire, evil lurks beneath the branches of the trees, and every step brings him closer to Smaug.

The Challenge: Write a story that is connected in some way with The Hobbit - the book or the movie - and that uses one or more of the three themes of the challenge - sun, shadow, Smaug - and post it on HASA. It can be anything you like as long as it ties in to something that happens or is mentioned or must have occurred given the events of the book or the movie.

  • It can be backstory, alternate scenes, side stories, afterwards stories, whatever you feel like writing
  • It can be about any character, canon, book or your own invention
  • It can be any genre - drama, comedy, poetry, parody, action adventure, mystery, etc.

This forum is for general discussion of this challenge.

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

This sounds like a fun challenge -- I've signed up for a story placeholder!  I'll decide what my part will be for the pledge part of the challenge later on in the month.

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

Happy New Year!!

How wonderful another challenge. *** claps hands wildly***

 I can't write worth a darn so I'll chip in for stories.

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

Hi Lin & eliza,

Yes, it's time for another great challenge! I'm trying to coax the muse out from under the couch (where she ended up after the rather raucous New Years celebration) and see if I can come up with something.

 Looking forward to all contributions,

Anglachel

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

I fear I can't help out financially but will happily provide stories?

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

If you don't write stories, Aruthir, I shall be forced to hunt you down and nag you incessantly until you do.

So, get busy! Wink

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

An apology, firstly- I didn't notice the 500+ word limit.

An announcement, secondly- all my entries to this challenge are now 500+ words.

A question, thirdly- everyone is liking my stories and not bored of them, yes?

No boredom here Grin

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

I'd best keep writing, then!

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

GrinBored??  Not a chance.

Ok, so I'll go 5 bucks a story up to 70.00 bucks total.  Did I phrase that correctly as to not get into trouble with legal?

My new years resolution is to show some love to all the wonderful writers by reviewing.  I'm totally bad in letting you guys know how much I appreciate the stories.

 

 

Re: Sun, Shadow and Smaug - Story Pledge Challenge

Yay, another pledge! As far as I can see you won't run into trouble with any legal dragons over phrasing;-)

(and I hear you on the reviewing - now all I need to do is actually do it)
