October 5th, 2009

Hello, everyone. It is October and time for a new challenge.

I've been reading about the United States Air Force's elite combat search and rescue teams called Pararescuemen. Affectionately called PJ's (pararescue jumpers) these are the guys that special forces units call on when they need rescue. PJ hopefuls spend two arduous years in training learning combat skills and tactics of US special forces such as the Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and Green Berets. They can fit into any of these operations. But what makes them unique is that they are also paramedics highly trained and experienced in treating combat wounds and trauma cases. Their main purpose is to rescue, treat, stabilize, and evacuate soldiers from combat zones and will do whatever it takes to saves lives, including sacrificing their own.

The words that every PJ lives by are this month's challenge: "That Others May Live".

We have until October 31st to post stories. Happy writing!

September 2nd, 2009

It's the start of yet another month and time for a new challenge. For September I'm posting two.

Challenge #1 is a quote from the mystic St. Francis who said, "There are beautiful and wild forces within us."

Takeda Shingen was a mighty and influential feudal lord in 14th-century Japan. His men carried his famous battle standard called Furinkazan to many victories. It is translated as Wind, Forest, Fire, and Mountain.

It's meaning is our Challenge #2 - Fast as the wind. Silent as the forest. Ferocious as fire. And as immovable as a mountain.

We have the entire month of September to post our fics.

Happy writing, one and all!

August 7th, 2009

Happy August, one and all.

This month's prompt is a quote. Use it as you wish.

"He wears his beauty so carelessly."

- Ian McKellan describing his Lord of the Rings co-star Viggo Mortensen

Post your creations by August 31st.

Happy writing!
