"If you pay attention, then you can draw inspiration from anywhere. So much of that is paying attention, to details and to what’s going on in your life. People say, “Where do you writers get your ideas?” and I say, “We get them from the same place everybody else does. We just notice when we’re having them."


-Neil Gaiman

We’re challenging both our readers and our writers this month! Readers, head into the Chamber Forum and post the story idea you’d like to see on the archive.  Writers, your job is to take a suggestion and come up with an original story or fan fiction. 

There’s only two limitations to this challenge.  Readers, no original character requests and writers, only one author may claim a story idea.  Other than that the sky’s the limit!  Who’s up for the challenge?
