Seven Days of Sci-Fi - AFTER the END

Journal Entry: Fri May 2, 2014, 1:30 PM

"I dare you to make a 7 days of scifi prompt list or something".
- LunaticStar


You guys are amazing. And when I say "amazing," I mean in the "first look at the herd of brontosaurus in Jurassic Park" amazing.  THEY DO MOVE IN HERDS.

Thanks to everyone who wrote and sent in their stories for the prompts.  Extra special congratulations to GDeyke, NamelessShe, AceFleam, and Tobaeus, the maddest of mad scientists who cranked out a story for ALL SEVEN prompts.  I'll be dropping some points on those kids for their efforts.

Please check out the Gallery of Seven-Day Science-Fiction GLORY for the spoils. There is some good stuff in there.

wintyrsnow, not WynterSnow. :p This isn't the first time that mistake has been made; I might have to change my dA handle sometime just to cut back on the confusion.

Anyway, I had a great time with this. :D Thanks again for everything!

I have to know - are you using a random generator or just purposefully trying to break our brains? Or both?

You can say both.

I bet it's both...

Memnalar Featured By Owner May 7, 2014
I have a working list that I've been adding to and taking from. Some come from generators, others from random phrases that I find here and there that stick with me. But yes, breaking brains is a goal.

Getting up and down the ladder while wavering with what feels like the onset of heat stroke is what's kind of scary, but it's really not that bad.

Set up a wading pool on a trampoline under where you're working. Then you can just fall into it. The only downside is that you might stop working and keep falling.

I'd totally be doing this if I had the time.  It looks so much fun...but alas, I am in the middle of finals this week.

Memnalar Featured By Owner May 7, 2014
Yep. If I actually stopped to think before doing this, I would have been more strategic. But, it was a response to a dare, soooo.   :)

Of course.  Well, just know that you are torturing me with all sorts of story ideas that I have no time to put in writing.

You could just write a single story on day 7 with all the prompts and words.  :)

Yeah, I can see how that would be important.

I tried donating points but I guess you have to pay for them or something? I'm not sure how DA works, honestly, beyond "place to share my art" and "place to find amazing art". I think I have a handle on the llamas, but everything else eludes me. ::timetostopyakkingandstartwriting::

:iconmemnalar:
Memnalar Featured By Owner May 5, 2014
It's okay.  :aww: But yes, you get points by either paying for them outright or getting them from someone else.  Don't worry about it; I'd MUCH see you write for the prompts rather than have you donate.

Did you find my story for Day One? I didn't see it in the gallery and when I tried to comment a link it didn't work properly...it's my newest deviation though so you should be able to find it easily...
