We've had a little break from our regular challenge schedule, but now we're ready to get back to working through the prompts and keeping our minds and fingers busy with lots of MFU action.  School has already started here where I live, so if the kiddos can get back to it then I guess we can too.
Here's the week of August 7-13 (M-Su), and an interesting site dedicated to writing from prompts ... The Write Prompts

[identity profile] glennagirl.livejournal.com
The Community is open and posting has begun over on DW.  Collections from writers in all genres can be deposited there as a resource archive for MFU story tellers.  If you posted here then just copy and past into an entry on DW (after you join), and use your name and genre as tags.   I'll be checking on tags to make sure they're being added, as I just did for
[livejournal.com profile] the_wretching.
You can find the original entry on this topic HERE
I hope you'll take advantage of this additional tool for storing links to your series/collections.

So... I'm looking at our Section VII Calendar which you can find HERE, and it says that today is Open Posting for the Great Episode Challenge.
That means if you have a story you never posted, or never wrote until now, you can post it today under that heading
It's a technicality really, because you can always post a story, challenge or non-challenge, any day of the week.  We prefer that you keep it within the days reserved for a particular challenge, but sometimes things just don't work out that way.
Having said all of that, Thursdays this summer are actually open posting for everything, so whatever little bits and drabbles you have stuck inside your box, or computer, post them and let's see what that looks like.
You know, the Beatles' Abbey Road album side 2 was mostly bits and drabbles, and that worked out really great.

Welcome to the Man From UNCLE Bingo Season!

This is a low-key, inspirational challenge where themed prompts will be distributed as bingo cards. The general idea of a "bingo challenge" is to look over the list of prompts on a randomized bingo card and see if there are five in a row or column or diagonal that inspire you. Then create something based on each prompt in the line. When all five have been completed, then you've finished a "bingo". There are also other bingo patterns for more inspiration, explained under bingo types.

The Man From UNCLE bingo will be a mix of prompts from common themes and also specific ones for our fandom(s). We will be running for a full year, so if you're working on other challenges, you can finish those first. :) Inspiration all year round.

Our challenge covers both the TV series and the Movie version, and all are welcome to play! We have a livejournal, a tumblr, and an AO3 account, and we invite all manner of fandom to come and join us. If you like gen, slash, het, ot3, or whatever floats your boat, this sea accommodates it all. We are also all-inclusive as far as how your fandom is expressed. Write fic? Great! Do artwork? Awesome! Make music? Terrific! For fills on the prompts, we accept Story/Fanfic, Music Vid, Recommendations Set, Icons, Fannish Essay/Meta, Picspam, Art, Drawings, Manips, Layout, Music Mixes... all of those are perfectly valid and fun things to do or try.

You can get a card and read more about T/MFU Bingo, the rules, the themes, the bingo types, etc, at either our livejournal or tumblr.

And just to jump-start it, I wrote two stories for my own bingo cards. :) One MFU combo stamp, and one TMFU single fill (no bingo yet! working on it).
- MFU TV: One of These Times (angsty, presumed dead, gen with touchy-feely)
- TMFU Movie: Adjustments (team 3, mission fic, wounded first aid, gen)

Come join the fun! :)

There's just a week left for you to request a story based upon a prompt photo. If you are itching for a little Spring in your life, don't let this pass you by!

Writers - due to a lack of prompts, feel free to grab a prompt, even if it has been taken by someone else. If the prompt moves you, feel free to add your (anonymous) name to the comments. Don't miss the chance for an early Spring Fling over in MFU_Scrapbook.

The Kuryakin File, one of the longest running gen MFU fanzines is again looking for stories for issue #37. I need stories and art. Gen stories, artwork, poems, cartoons, filks, just about anything UNCLE related are welcomed. Run it past me and I’ll be the judge if it will work in this zine. All manuscripts will be edited. The zine is pdf only, mainly due to printing costs a contributor's copy will be sent to anyone who submits to the zine.

Send all submissions to me at: lemadden52@gmail.com

No deadline at this time, but really would like to publish by mid May, 2017.

Thanks, and any questions, just ask.

My note - Lisa says that this issue will be dedicated to Robert Vaughn. I've worked with and known Lisa for nearly forty years. She is a great editor and you can trust her with your work. Also, the stories don't have to be just about Illya.

I'm not sure if everyone is aware of the annual Down the Chimney Affair, hosted by the MUNCLE community.  There are currently 14 stories posted at the site, and you can find them HERE
Not everyone checks in with MUNCLE since it is a slash community, but the DtC is all genre and usually has some of the best stories of the year.  You can read other DtC stories by using the link on the right side of the page and clicking on any of the tags for DtC.

I happened upon this website this morning and am happy to share it with you.  Sometimes we need to recall a line from an episode, and along with the framecapturelib.com that includes the photos, here is a site devoted entirely to quotes.
So much fun to have these writing aids so easily at our fingertips.
