The Story Lottery - Information and Participant Profiles
« on: August 20, 2019, 12:11:07 AM »


What is The Story Lottery...?

A fun new way to challenge yourself and meet new writers in the process.

Every month you can sign up to be paired up at random with another member of E who shares certain writing qualities with you. These include genre preferences, posting speed and so on.

You will also be given 4 or 5 prompts that you can use to help inspire your story if you want to. These might be images, quotes or maybe even the odd music clip now and then.


How does it work...?

  • First thing you need to do is create a profile post for yourself here in the Participants thread using the code lower down in this post to share the information we need to match you up with a writing partner.
  • Next, between the 20th and 25th of the month, sign up in Monthly Sign Up thread by posting a link back to the profile post you made in this thread.
  • Once we have all the participants we will announce the partnerships on the 30th/31st.
  • Then...? Well, then it's up to you and your partner to go start your story over in the One Shot Forum. We'll then link to it in the monthly Feedback thread so people can go read your story and give you some encouragement or help you brainstorm if you get stuck. ;D
  • It’s entirely up to you and your chosen partner whether you opt to brainstorm a little first or…just pick a genre/theme, nominate one of you to start writing and see where the words take you!

Why do I have to create a profile post...?

Even though this is a lottery and you have no idea who you'll end up writing with, we want to give your writing partnership a fighting chance :D so we will use in the information in your profile post to make sure we give you a partner who likes the same sorts of things as you and whose posting frequency is close to your own.


Why do I need to include story tags and what does each tag mean...?

To help us make sure you get the kind of story you're looking for, we need to make sure you include the correct story tags in your participant profile.
You'll find definitions for each of them under the spoiler and you can list all of them or only one or two but please only include ones you're actually prepared to write.

What do the tags mean...?
[NA] : Non-adult, no sexual scenes or ones that fade to black.

[L-H] : Light consensual sexual scenes, between humans or near-humans

[L-E] : Light consensual sexual scenes, between non-humans

[BON] : Bondage and light S&M

[BON-E] : Bondage and light S&M involving non-human encounters

[NC-H] : Non-consensual involving humans or near-humans

[NC-E] : Non-consensual involving non-human creatures

[EX] : Gore, bestiality, snuff, mutilation, very heavy S&M

[UN] : If you are undecided or unsure which direction the story will go



What if you can't find me a partner...?

To the best of our ability, we will match people up with a different partner each month based on interests and participant numbers etc. - but in the event a suitable partner cannot be found, participants will be encouraged to try to write solo pieces using the prompts as inspiration either in the Monthly Feedback thread or in one of Elliquiy's solo writing forums - such as the Storyteller's Café or the Storytelling Forum.


Do we have to make it a One Shot...?

To start out, yes. Given that you'll be writing with someone new there is always the chance that the partnership (or the story) won't work out and the One Shot forum is designed for trying out new things.
Obviously, if you click with the person you're matched with and the story between you really takes off then you can ask any member of Staff to move it to the appropriate forum based on the content.


Can I have more than one Story Lottery partner/partnership at a time...?

Yes, yes you most certainly can and in your profile post you can list the number of stories you’d like to take on at any one time, up to a maximum of 5.
The first time you participate you will only be given one partner but then you can always sign up to be given a second (and maybe third) partner when the next month rolls around.


Do I have to take part every month...?

No you don't. You only sign up for those months you want to take part in. That might be every month or it might be once every few months. It's entirely up to you.


How can I tell people about the Story Lottery...?

I was hoping you’d ask that ;D you can use our very funky patchwork participation badge in your signature or E thread location of choice, linking it back to this thread.


Code: [Select]

I still have questions...

That’s not a problem, just PM Britwitch and she can help you.
