This month is going to be slightly different around Camelot Drabble. Instead of having weekly prompts, with four days to write for each one, we will be hosting a month-long Bingo Challenge! This is how it will work:
1.] Sign-up! A mod will assign you a randomly generated, 4x4 card.
2.] Over the course of the month, create and post as many drabbles/drawbles as you'd like, inspired by the prompts on your card.
3.] Everyone completing a bingo will win the opportunity to choose the prompt for a week of their choice.
Well, that's not completely it. Like any challenge, there are certain rules.
1.] Request a bingo card on the sign-up post. You can sign up all the way until the final Saturday of the month.
2.] Review the card to figure out which bingo line you'd like to fill. All pairings, ratings, and genres are allowed. Everything will be accepted, as long as it contains the prompt in some form.
3.] To win, you must make a bingo of some kind. A bingo consists of the following: horizontal line, vertical line, diagonal line, or (if you're feeling daring) a blackout of every square on the card. The minimum number of drabbles/drawbles to complete a bingo is four (one for each week of July).
4.] Post your fills to the community with the normal posting format. The "Prompt" will be whatever the prompt is in the square you're filling.
5.] If you finish a bingo, make a single post to the community with the links to your completed works, using the following template:
Bingo Completed: (horizontal, vertical, diagonal, blackout)
6.] Posts for both fills and bingos can be made at ANY TIME throughout the month. Bingo ends on Wednesday, July 31st.
7.] The same prompt tag will be used throughout the month. It is pt 372:bingo-round 1.
8.] There will also be a single AO3 collection for all works created in this first round of Camelot Drabble Bingo.
Sign-ups begin: Friday, July 5th
Posting begins: Saturday, July 6th
Weekly round-ups: Wednesdays throughout July
Weekly reminders: Fridays throughout July
Deadline for requesting a card: Saturday, July 27th at 10 a.m. EST
