The Rules

Welcome to the official central hub of my Pass It On challenge! Here, you will find the calendar for submission as well as all the individual parts that have been completed thus far. First, I’ll begin by outlining a few important rules:
  1. Each participant is required to submit a short story of at least 500 words in prose. Your entry must continue the story started by the people ahead of you in line.
  2. All individual submissions must be linked in a comment on this forum post before your assigned deadline. Please do not include the text of the person before you in your entry.
  3. By entering into this event, you acknowledge and accept the responsibility that the schedule requires and you commit to being respectful of your fellow participants’ writing skills and their time.
The Challenge

The challenge for this round is called “Simulacrum”. That is all the information that will be provided to all participants of this challenge except the person who begins the story.

The Calendar

The writers embarking upon this challenge are as follows:

An Intelligent Moron17 August - 31 August
Kwanatla31 August - 14 September
LemilasTheElf14 September - 28 September
lyliaa28 September - 12 October
Shady_Warlock12 October - 26 October
Bleyd26 October - 9 November
Just25Savage9 November - 23 November
Inspirinq23 November - 7 December
-Rae-7 December - 21 December
zubble21 December - 4 January 2020
Chiaroscuro4 January - 18 January
DinowCookie18 January - 1 February

Participants may switch time slots with other participants provided that such switches are communicated to me in a timely manner.

The Notes

Let me know if you would like my in-depth feedback of your work and I will PM my thoughts to you. However, keep in mind that my writing is not perfect and I critique from my perspective as a reader and writer.

Entries remain open during the duration of this challenge. Unless the challenge has already ended, you can still be part of it. You will simply be added to the end of the calendar. If you missed the entry for this challenge and would like to participate in a future one, let me know and I’ll be sure to contact you when the next one happens.

Good luck writers!

The Progress

You can find all completed parts to the story in this collection.

Since for the moment my PMs aren't working, I hope I can catch Bleyd here. You're up next, I'll send you some more information once I can get everything up and running.

Hey, Can I reschedule my slot? I'm going to be doing NaNoWriMo during November this year which means I'll already be pretty busy writing then.

Would any of you be interested in taking my earlier spot?

I have an important school work deadline October 31. And I *can* meet my writing deadline of November 9 but it would be more convenient for me to start a touch later. 😁

If no-one wants to swap, that's cool too. 😊 Just let me know!

Just25Savage and Bleyd thanks for your replies!

What if; Bleyd takes my spot
Savage takes Bleyd's spot
I take Savage's spot.

Bleyd    26 October - 9 November
Savage   7 December - 21 December
Dinow   18 January - 1 February

Chiaroscuro would that work? :) That way they both get to start sooner. 😊

Nice, schedule-wise my spot should be perfect. :D I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this take shape.
Question; if the person before you finishes early, can you start early yourself then? 😊

Lovely time slot, I’ll have Thanksgiving Break to really push through it. :) One concern though; my time slot means that I essentially have to conclude the story. If entries into the challenge are still being accepted at that time and someone joins during my two weeks, it may end up messing up the flow of my entry, or cause me to have to rewrite a fair portion of it. I understand this is a large “if,” however it could happen. I hope that made sense.

You’re actually not concluding because we already have two new people joining after you, but thanks for pointing that out to me I’ll close entries before the last person.

Do we get to see everything the people before us have written, or only the piece that the one person before us did?
(Irrelevant for me , but just to know)
And how do we submit? Do we make a blog and post it, or de we PM it to you so no one gets to know everything?

Yes, you’ll get to see them. Just create your submission as a blog and then link it to this forum thread in the comments.
