October Giraffe Call: The Norm

The call for prompts is now OPEN!

I am now taking prompts on the themes of the Norm: finding it, subverting it, ignoring it, or whatever you want to do to it.

Leave one or many prompts, and I will write (over the next month) at least one microfic (150-500 words) to each prompter (prompts may be combined)

Prompts can be related to one of my extant settings (See my landing page-landing page) or they can be for something completely different.

Prompting is free! But Donations are always welcome.

For each $5 you donate, I will write an additional 500 words to the prompt(s) of your choice.



Donations are going to go directly towards the price of a new laptop - mine is on its last legs, and it's my only writing machine.



If I get two new prompters or one new donator, I will write a setting piece (setting chosen by poll) explaining something about the prompts.

At $30 in donations, I will order happy-fun socks/armwarmers from Sock Dreams! Winter is coming!

At $40 in donations, everyone who donated will get an additional microfic written to their prompts. I will choose 1 non-donater at random to receive an additional microfic as well.

At $50, anyone who donated $7.50 or more will have a copy of "Alder by Post" mailed to them if they wish.

For every $50 donated, I will do a one-hour livewrite on Etherpad or googledocs during the next month.

At $80, I will write two extra 500-word continuations - chosen by prompters picked by random number generator.

At $120, everyone who donated will get an additional (3rd) microfic written to their prompts. I will choose 2 more non-donaters at random to receive an additional microfic as well.

If we get to $120, I will take suggestions for further incentives!

The Norm

My Giraffe Call is Open here! Stop in and leave a prompt!

This is to rix_scaedu's prompt.


"Norm?"

All of a sudden, I was back in fourth grade, with Miss Cardigan the substitute looking at me over her glasses. "Norman?"

"No, ma'am." I used the same smile on the secretary that I'd used on Miss Cardigan. "My mother named me Norm."

"That's an old name for someone so young."
