    THE “I’LL FINISH IT LATER” CHALLENGE


    Almost everybody has one – a story that you started with such gusto that you were convinced you’d have it finished within a week, a story that you suddenly lost interest in. That same story is probably rotting away in your hard-drive, floundering around with half-finished one-shots and story ideas you thought up years ago. Occasionally, you might even open the document and write a few words for old time’s sake, before shutting it down and thinking “I’ll finish it later”.

    We owe it to these stories – the stories left untold – to finish them. We owe it to them to wipe away the rust and write until our fingers bleed. I am challenging as many Mibbians as possible to pick a story – any story, any length – that they’ve forgotten and finish it by the time 2019 draws to a close. You can focus on one story, or complete more than one – the only stipulation is that it must be an existing story. Nothing new allowed!

    To join, simply create a post in this thread to track your progress. Each story completed by the end of the year will receive a comment and a recommendation.

    ***

    RULES
    • Follow Mibba’s Story Guidelines
    • Any rating, genre or type goes
    • Your story must be an existing one – nothing new will be accepted
    • Stories should be finished by December 31, 2019
    ***

    @ silk tea.
    Yeah, that's fine! I'm running this contest on the honour principle - as long as you're working on something you've had sitting about and it's not a new story, you can enter with it even if it isn't posted on the site anymore. Obviously to receive the comment at the end of the year it'll have to be on here so I can comment, but feel free to work on stuff off-site if that's what you wanna do! It's all about getting people to finish stuff they wanna finish, so there's no major rules with that tehe
