So you think it’s great I’m doing a prompt call, but you want a little more from my stories this time.
How do you get more words?
There’s a few ways!
a) Get someone else to prompt! New eyes are my friends.
b) Comment (a substantive comment: more than i like this, though essays are not required. Telling me something you liked is a good way to do this!) The first two stories to get 5+ comments (And then the first 2 to get 7+ and so on…) will get an extension.
c) Work on my wiki – http://wiki.lynthornealder.com ! The normal offer is “three posts on a setting for a fic about that setting”.
For the purposes of this call, any page you create and complete will count as one extension to one Squash Story, within limits. *
c) Tell me to write something else. I know it’s counter-intuitive, but if you pick something from the list below (one thing, or, if the thing is non-writing, one non-writing and one writing thing), I will also write an extension to the story of your choice, or a second prompt.
You can ask me what any of these are – those I’ve already written up an explanation for can be found here: http://www.lynthornealder.com/writing/current-projects/

* Limits on the wiki page extension – if the page is simply: Dolores Colchinny – serving Twelve sequential 25-year-sentences without possibility of parole for first-degree murder and then another ten years for felony theft – first appears (link) – I may ask you to make two of those for the same extension. But something as complete as http://wiki.lynthornealder.com/index.php?title=Bellamy may get you two extensions. So the sweet spot is – http://wiki.lynthornealder.com/index.php?title=Eleanor_Kennedy, which also serves as a decent character page template. )
(note on the above note: Characters who show up in a single flash fiction are the least important to get wiki pages. Which is why I used her there as an example. )
