Popping up from no where to ask you all if you are up for a three sentence ficathon? I'm so up for it, but I can't very well do it by my self now, can I? :) Let me know, and I'll start one up. Let's have fun!

I think 3SF is great. Love it. We had so much fun last year. It's one of the best things of the fic year. I do wonder if maybe you want to wait until Yuletide is over? Everyone just got their prompts and are really super-focused on that so it will be hard to get participation. Last year we ran it in March, which coincided with a lot of spring breaks and had a HUGE HUGE response. Just something to think about.

I usually do it at the beginning of December, but the mood struck me now, kind of. I'm kind of out of the loop now, when is yuletide over? I don't really mind waiting until December, but I also don't mind letting it run for forever, since it's such a low threshold thing...

I'd totally be up for it, love it! But rthstewart might be right about the Yuletide timing - at least it might want to wait until the first squee/panic over assignments is over.

When do you think that will be? I'm so very out of the fanfiction loop these days, that the thought didn't even cross my mind :P

Assignments are due 23 December, the archive opens on 25 December and reveals are on Jan 1. Yuletide does tend to suck all the air out of the room, for writers, readers, and betas.

Know what... I'm gonna just go ahead and ignore Yuletide. I'm gonna wait until the end of November, then start one up. Because Three Sentence isn't that big of a deal, and probably be a good break for people. Yuletide has always been at that time right? And I've always done three sentences in December and it's always gone over well. So... yeah... I think so...?

I think that's fine! I just meant, assignments came out this week (yesterday? I'm not doing YT) and everyone is hyper-focused at the moment. In a week or two it'd be different!

I'm up for it! And I don't mind it being during Yuletide, it'll be a fun distraction. :)
