    Welcome, challengers, to your Writing Cup group thread! Here you can chat, cheerlead and help our your fellow group-mates, as well as getting any help you might need yourself. This first post contains a run-down of the Writing Cup rules and guidelines, a permanent reminder of the Cup's points system and a copy of this year's Challenge Board.

    Your group leaders are youngblood. and nearly witches. If you have any questions or concerns, please ensure that you message either of them for assistance.

    Image


    To ensure that the Cup runs as smoothly as possible, please follow the below rules:
    • Only words written between 01 February and 28 February 2019 will be counted. Chapters should be linked back to this thread in order to be counted.
    • All stories must abide by the site's Story Guidelines. Stories / chapters that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be counted towards your final total.
    • Any rating / genre / fandom is accepted.
    • Group / co-writes cannot be counted towards your final total.
    • Word count posted should only be for new work. Rewrites of old chapters cannot be counted towards your final total.
    Image


    The Writing Cup uses a points system. The team with the most points at the end of the month is crowned overall winner, and there are also individual prizes up for grabs. For every 1,000 words you write, you will earn 1 point. If you reach a trigger amount within a week, you can also earn booster points based on your total:

    5,000 words = 5 points
    10,000 words = 10 points
    15,000 words = 15 points
    20,000 words = 20 points
    25,000 words = 25 points
    30,000 words = 30 points

    … and so on so forth. These points are added onto your total at the end of each week, and these boosters can really up your chances of winning the prizes!

    Image


    Although not a necessary part of the Cup, the Challenge Board is a fun way to start / continue getting involved with your group and the site in general while earning points. You receive one point for every task you complete, and an additional four points for completing the entire board. Those that complete the board will also win an additional prize.

    Image

    * Please note: for the square discussing the 'Tips' forum, your comment must be in a thread other than the Comment Swap threads.

    Whenever you complete a challenge, please alert one of your group leaders, who will score it off of the challenge board.
    The challenge beings February 01, 2019 in your timezone and finishes February 28, 2019 in your timezone. So, once the clock strikes midnight, you can go for it.

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN

    Hi, guys, and welcome to the 2019 Writing Cup! For those of you familiar with me, you’ll know me from around the blog section, and around the site in general. For those of you who aren’t, well, allow me to introduce myself! I’m Molly, your friendly, local blog moderator and I’m one of your team leaders! I was a team leader in The 2017 Writing Cup and I had such a blast, I’m excited to do this again.

    We’ve got some pretty strong people on this team and I’m so excited to see what you come out with! Remember, if you have any questions, Vic and I are more than happy to help! We’ll be around in this thread often to chat with you guys and see what’s going on.

    The challenge square has also been revamped a little bit this year, with a new challenge to post in any of the sub-threads in the Tips forum, and I must admit, I think that improvement will really be easier for a lot of people to complete.

    February is gonna be a lot of fun! Go Team B!

    Hi I'm Vic and I've just realised I made a spelling error in the challenge board in both groups. WHAT AN INTRODUCTION. I'll fix it, I promise.

    More seriously, hello! I'm Vic, and I'm admin newbie extraordinaire / your other group leader this year. I think I've been involved in every incarnation of the Writing Cup over the years, and it's never not been fun for me, so I'm hoping it'll be fun for you all as well! As Molly has said, we'll be around if you need any help or questions so just let either of us know!

    We'll both be here to effectively be your cheerleaders, and hopefully we'll both do a good job. TEAM B, ASSEMBLE.

    I'm Emmalee and I talk through gifs! Nice to meet ya'll! I'm usually MIA from Mibba, but I lurk most of the time. Trying to get back into the habit of writing so hopefully ya'll can help me out and we can win! I wasn't in the writing cup last year, but I was the year it started. OUR TEAM WON AND WE WERE TEAM B SO YEAH, LET'S WIN AGAIN! I'M HERE TO WIN, PEOPLE! Crazy

    But I am actually nice so don't let my competitive edge intimidate you. Weird

    @ nearly witches. @ youngblood.

    I have QUESTIONS because my memory's shot and I can't remember from the last time I did this!!

    1. Can we do a square on the Challenge Board more than once for extra points? For example, can I do the first square (Leave a comment of at least 100 Words on a group member's story) for each member in our group and get the extra points?

    2. I'm pretty sure this wasn't allowed last time, but I want to make sure. Can I combine two squares - like maybe combining the drabble and the ticking clock scenario?

    Thank yewwww~

    Hello friends! ^_^

    I am Mari, so nice to meet you guys! I'm usually a lurker on Mibba lol. If I'm not lurking, I'm usually making layouts or graphics for fics. I'm so excited to be in this group and to do the Writing Cup. This is my first time doing it! :) I figured with the Mibba Revival Challenge, doing Writing Cup would be a great way to be more active.

    Go Group B! Crazy

    @ TheDevilsHalo; @ othello.

    Hello, my lovely teammates!

    I just finished my drabble for the challenge board and was wondering if one of you might like to beta the chapter or make me a layout for it so we can start punching out some of the squares?

    Thanks much and let me know~!

    Hi guys! Just dropping by to see how you're all feeling on the first official day of The 2019 Writing Cup! I'll be on and off Mibba for the rest of the evening and checking on you all regularly! I'm so excited to see what you guys create over the next 28 days! Team Better Than Team A are gonna knock this outta the park!

    I'm gonna have to ask Vic about this one! I've only been a team leader once before, so I'm pretty new to this myself! Once Vic's online, I'm sure she'll be popping in to check on you troublemakers. I'm pretty curious to the answers myself!
