The challenges return! This month's comes to use from Miranda Fave, who says, "'On my word...'
The challenge this month is to write a piece inspired by or using those words.
Is it a promise made, a promise broken? An oath pledged or the character of a person? Is it a command given? A call to arms, a call for revolution? Is a matter of honour, a matter of pride? A shock or surprise? The start of a race or some countdown? You decide. On your word it will be. And have fun."

One of the things that makes the archive and the forum such a success and such a pleasure is of course the wonderful community of writers and readers. Interactive feedback is insanely valuable to a writer and hey everyone can do with an ego boost, because no matter the review, we all like to get a chime telling us someone read our work and felt enough to make a comment good, bad or indifferent. So get reading and reviewing for another manic Review Hunt
The review hunt is scored thusly:
- Base points: The number of words per review. So, if you write five words in a review, you get five points.
- Bonus points: As stated above, we like to reward quality over quantity. Therefore, you can win bonus points for posting an in-depth review!
- Extra bonus points: For every review on a story on the Master List, there will be an additional +? bonus points (Steff can decide that).
The Master List is going to be a recommendation of one of your own stories and one from a different author. Post your story choices in this thread.
Post reviews in the Review Count thread.
There is no limit on the stories you can review. You're welcome to re-review a story you read long ago, bringing new insights to the table for the author to enjoy. Feed the creative souls of Ad Astra, and win!
