// cwwc 2017 | sign-ups //

hello, my friends! the time has come to sign up for cwwc 2017. before i get into all of the details, how to sign up, etc., here are the teams:

team narnia (the chronicles of narnia) — 95 votes.

team hogwarts (harry potter) — 90 votes.

team half-blood (percy jackson and the olympians)– 31 votes.

team shire (lord of the rings) — 24 votes.

“important” information:

what it is:

creating words writing camp is an online writing challenge. it will last the entire month of august.

how it works:

for each challenge, i’ll post three writing prompts, a mix between dialogue and picture prompts. the participants will have four days to complete their entry and post it on their blog/email it to me. your entry can be a short story, poem, or story that continues throughout the challenges.

the goal:

to grow as a writer, and to help your team win. the winning team is whichever one has the most points at the end of august. you can earn points by submitting your stories on time (worth two points) and using the provided writing prompts (one point per prompt).


this year, the teams are team narnia, team hogwarts, team half-blood, and team shire. all of the participants will be sorted onto a team.

if you don’t have a blog:

you can still participate! all that changes is that instead of posting your story on your blog, you email it to me instead. my email is happyhouseofag@gmail.com.

how to sign up:

☼ leave a comment on this post, telling me your name and blog url.

☼ for those without a blog: tell me your name and that you are participating through email.

☼ tell me which team you would like to be on, as well as a second choice.

make sure to sign up before midnight on july 30th. i will post the first challenge on august 1st.

still have questions? you can ask me in the comments, and i’ll do my best to clear things up.

    YAY!!! I”M SO EXCITED, LOREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AREN”T YOU EXCITED!?????
    Anyways… Ummmmmmmmmmm…. I am K.A! ;) From myburstsofinspiration.wordpress.com (my writing blog) and I would like to be on Team Half-blood, or team Narnia! ;) I’m assuming you’ll be swamped with people on team Narnia though! ;) haha! YAY!!! So, do we not get judged at all on things like how well it flows or like how long or well written it was? Just if the prompts are in it and if it’s on time? Of course we’ll still try to do well…but I didn’t know. Nevermind, it would probably be difficult to try and keep points straight if you were doing all of that! ;) I”M SO EXCITED THOUGH!!!!!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR DOING THIS LOREN I”M SUPER DUPER EXCITED IF YOU CAN”T TELL!! I’m writing this with a straight face, but I REALLY AM EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! WHOOHOOOO!!!! I REALLY have been needing to write more lately, so I’m glad I can try and do this! I’ll be pretty busy for the first few times, but hopefully I can still get it in!
    Oh, also, can we get more points for using the first three prompts ALSO in our second story with those three prompts? Or do 1st prompts only count for 1st story, 2nd prompts for 2nd story and so on???

      judging the stories based on those things would be a heck ton of work for me, so no, it’s just how many prompts you use and if you turn it in on time. and this year, you can only use the prompts from the current challenge. :)

  11. Cherry Cola22 says:

    So, how it works is you post a pic and we have to write a short story about it? And then you judge or do we just get points for turning it in? I’m new to this whole thing🙂
