...and I, meanwhile, am out. The muses just weren’t having it.

Arrakis may live on, though. I’m in negotiations with Chloe to take over the Atreides banner and go on to victory.

If you submit now it will get lost in the normal story churn, and probably won't get on the anthology listings. I'd submit in the time-frame requested, to make it easier for Laurel.

Okay, I'll commit to ONE NIGHT IN BISBEE, ARIZONA but I won't commit to when. But maybe an April Fool on the job in a geek's night in Bisbee. Could I submit that story in all four events?

The Atreides banner will fly high.... Chloe will take it on. Arrakis is too good to let pass.

I may need a story-writing AI for the gruntwork. Eliza, pass me four sub-plots. Make sure they all mesh.

And the Official Announcement for the "One Night in XXX" Story Event is up

The story / author list was as of Friday so apologies to any who joined in over the weekend who were left of or who changed their minds (Voboy, you are forgiven and Arrakis is mine now, all mine, my precious)

I need a judge's ruling. I just read the "official" rules on the event page Chloe linked to, and this jumped out at me:
"The whole story, start to finish, has to take place over one night"
My story starts in the late morning, just before lunch. It will end by sunrise the next day, and most of the real action won't start until sundown. I think I remember something similar being sanctioned in a previous post, but I haven't been able to find it.

So is that legal? Or do I need to figure out a way to cram the whole plot into dusk til dawn?

I asked that earlier and Chloe answered that it could start earlier in the day--that hers does.

Pfffft! Had some time carved out today to finish, so there! Poughkeepsie has officially been defiled. 12,500 words.

Now for the head scratching. I chose to start cruising along with a flirtatious erotic couplings build. Then as soon as the engine heats up, it takes a hard swerve to the right and ends up careening through the land of exhibitionism and voyeurism. After blasting through a wall of reluctance, it goes head first off a cliff into group sex, then tumbles over itself and comes safely to rest in erotic couplings again.
Everyone survives.
I think I'll stick with erotic couplings as the dominant spirit of the thing.

Yes, that's fine. I'm starting mine late afternoon as my heroine rides into Xanadu and I work in some background to how the whole thing came about as she rides in. There's no reason to be be too dogmatic about it as long as it leads into that "one night".

I read the rule: The whole story, start to finish, has to take place over one night and to me "one night" is sunset to sunrise, maybe squeaking-in twilights. And as I've noted, 'night' can be of varied length in varied places. But going beyond a night, except by brief flashback, is IMHO a violation. But I ain't the judge so who cares?

Other than setting in one real or previously fictional town, I see no limits. Any number of different groups may be fucking that night in that place. One Night in San Luis Obispo could feature defilements in Bubblegum Alley, the Mission, the Madonna Inn, out at Cal Poly, and in cozy downtown apartments.

I've committed to One Night in Bisbee. But that crazy border town of strung-together mining camps comprises several boroughs, each with its own pervs, as well as the huge pit-mine that was a mountain before it was dug out for copper, silver, gold, turquoise, etc. Scenes in town may feature border patrol agents, mojados (wetbacks), self-proclaimed artists, retirees, refugees, lost tourists, creatures from the mountains, paratroopers, beekeepers, rogue miners, patriot vigilantes, film crews and actors, and antique shop clerks.

All of those in one small city in one night, dusk till dawn? Yo!

I'm starting sometime late afternoon (around 5 pm I think), and everything before sunset is history, pure set up of the protagonist. Except one phone call launching the main plot, and one innuendo, with still unknown consequences on the sidelines.

Also, have to recheck facts, is my intended sunset scene actually at sunset: it's calendar against working hours of a certain elevator, against story logic and logistics. So maybe it's close, but doesn't actually wait for sun to go under, but it's another breakup anyway, so that's probably okay. And if anything, I can claim unrealistic open hours as period specifics -- it's Rīga in 1995, still in chaos time, just 3 years since the empire of lies died in the war of songs -- almost no claim is too ridiculous for those spacetime coordinates.

Well, then, follow your interpretation of that if you like. I take it to mean on one day with emphasis on and ending with what happens that night. Again, these are writing exercises with no competition or comparison or reward. They don't need to be run into the ground with "what ifs?"

Flashbacks are possibly a worse transgression than starting a little early or ending a little late (mine does both). Flashbacks take the story completely out of one night and one place, and they seem like pretty direct rule busters.

I'd agree on the flashbacks, especially if it's not a fleeting one. A few memories, or something like that that sets the scene for the why and the where was rather what I had in mind. As long as the major emphasis is on the one night...

I don't think anyone should get too hung up on a few sentences of a character remembering something or something like that if that's what it takes to set the scene for the night. It's more of a theme, and as long as everyone approaches it in the spirit in which it's intended, that's fine.

There ain't no judge passing the stories or grading them or saying "rejected". It's up to everyone to make their own call and my guidance is as good (or as bad) as anyone else's here. I'll comment on how I interpret it seeing as I came up with it, but in the end you have to follow your own judgement.

If it's to far off, Laurel probably won't pass it as part of the event, but that's her call and it'd have to be way off base before that happened I think.

My own story starts as dusk is approaching and the sun is sinking below the horizon, with some background woven in as to what brought the character to where she is and then it really kicks into the main story... but it's obvious that she's remembering and that it's dusk... Hope that helps.

Damn all you Philadelphia lawyers.

Chloe's gonna be watching us all like a hawk now. I was slipping in a travelogue along with some flashbacks. All in the crapper now. So starting again with 10 words...

Nah, I'm not watching. You are all responsible adults. Well, most of you - I leave it to you all to judge yourselves. I think the intent's clear and I'm no quibbler over fine details.

Flashbacks, memories, whatever scene setting you need but it should be obvious that's what they are. I don't want to get into laying down rules to that level of detail. Use your best judgement and don't get excessive is all. There's no judges. It's supposed to be fun, not a competition, so don't sweat it.

I mentioned 'brief' flashbacks, i.e. memories. Like how they're in Bisbee because the van broke down last year and they never left -- minimal scene-setting background, not their whole history. But real party animals never rise before sunset anyway. That makes it easy.

Totally on board with that one. That's more or less my approach, except my brief is maybe not quite as brief as yours

I've gotta question:

The plot that took over my head for this event is based on a song. I have the story finished and want to include the lyrics of the song for any reader who might not be familiar with it. Question: I can find the lyrics all over the web and have copied them for part of my intro. I'm ass-umming that so long as I provide the proper credits and copyright info it will be acceptable to include those lyrics in the introduction of the story.

Anyone have any experience with this?

I don't but I have the same circumstance for a story I'm working on so I'm very curious to learn the answer myself

Laurel asked me to pull verses out of a poem I quoted, she wouldn't allow the whole poem. I pulled every second verse, trying to keep as much meaning intent as I could. It sorta kinda lost the intent, though.

Chloe regularly quotes song lyrics, but I don't know if she keeps it below a certain percentage. She'll be along soon to tell you.
