Update on Surprise Story Week

moonwolf1988 has posted an update (which is on crowdfunding but locked, so I think only members will see it) about the Surprise Story Week on kajones_writing.  Summarizing here: There is still time to request a number between 1 and 25 for random story generation.  So far there are five stories and all have been written.  It's okay if we wind up with more than seven -- they will just make for extra story posts beyond the planned week.  The permanent prompts page also has an option for random-number prompts, for people who don't feel up to making fancy prompts.  There you can ask for an alternate-universe story, or provide two numbers for a random pairing of two characters.  Please drop by and pick a number so we can have more stories!

I am really looking forward to seeing the results of this experiment.  I've seen people mention both on my blog and elsewhere that they hesitate to get involved in crowdfunding because they don't think they can come up with good prompts.  If this works, it's a good way around that.  It's also an interesting way to shake up the plot a bit and mix characters who might not otherwise get the attention or combinations that this will create.
