Survival.

Sometimes, in the rush of paying bills and working, it's easy to forget that we are surviving. Enduring.

Since August is traditionally the month of Hollywood action films, let's take a look at survival from several different perspectives, from sudden danger to an emotional crisis. There are often moments left out of those rush-rush-rush action films, too, especially the emotional regrouping or adjustments to the hero's perceptions.

Let's explore the theme of survival in large and small ways. The following list is divided into: dangers, reactions, moments and consequences. The list is designed to be customized, to help you generate the perfect bingo card. I've created a public card as well, with what I hope is a decent mix of the categories.

There are no minimum word counts set. There are no exclusions or special criteria. Little moments can slip into other stories, enriching them. That's only one kind of inspiration; I hope each player uses the prompts and their card to add a bit of challenge and a lot of enjoyment to their own writing.

The bingo generator is here: http://an.owomoyela.net/fun/bingo_generator


The list:
Dangers:
sudden threat, hidden danger, natural disaster, accident, coincidence, illness, lifestyle choice, poor decision, blind risk,

Reactions:
shock, loneliness, fear, horror, paranoia, grief, jubilation, excitement, thrill, pride, vindication, relief, sadness, weakness, triumph, hope,

Moments:
Introspection, gathering courage, perspective, insight, angst, bonding,

Consequences:
lifestyle change, maturing, loss, discovery, stability, forged bonds, regression, achievement, personal growth, disability, brass ring,

The card:
pride maturing thrill hope horror
triumph jubilation weakness perspective sudden threat
relief shock FREE SPACE lifestyle change poor decision
natural disaster sadness stability Introspection hidden danger
lifestyle choice vindication blind risk accident paranoia

Hello, all!

Back at the end of May, I launched a culturebuilding list to go along with [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's worldbuilding list. In preparation for a big "Flesh Out Your World" fest in September and October, I've added two more lists: Group Dynamics and Characterbuilding. You can find them both under the Community-Contributed Lists section on the Bingo generator.

Enjoy! And if you've got any suggestions to help flesh out the Group Dynamics list, please do toss them my way; I really struggled with that one, for some reason.

Here are a couple teasers for each list, which you're welcome to use as public cards:

Welcome to Winter Fest in July. We will be you guest host for the month.

We love all things winter and Christmas. We realize that not everyone has fandoms or original universes that support that. I tried to come up with a few lists that could fit into almost any verse.

Feel free to use any prompt how they speak to you. I have them separated just to make the list a bit more manageable.

For example if you use a movie or music post feel free to just work off the tittle, or you can remix the movie it's up to you.

As usual there will banners at the end of the month. Also fill can be made of anything, fic, poetry, vid, pod fics,recs and hand crafts. Art, icons, and wallpaper are nice as well.

This is a winter fest themed month so why not share some of your favorites and rec yours or someone else work.

Anything goes this month the only limit is your imagination.


There is a public card at the bottom of this post, or feel free to make you own here.

You can mix or match any of the prompts below or pick your own if like.





Holidays





Food



Music & Movies


Winter Characters



Traditions



Decorations







December Holidays
A months worth of special days.

Today is the last day for posting claims in the Cottoncandy Bingo fest.  Of course, the community is open to all bingo activities, so you can keep working your cards, but this is the end of the official period. 

I made one column bingo and wrote 9 other fills, which is pretty good, especially considering I lost a couple weeks due to air conditioning malfunction.  Did anyone else make fills in this fest?

This is the June community post for [community profile] allbingo. What were your bingo activities during the past month? What are your plans for July?

For June, we had TWO fests:

Finish It Bingo fest hosted by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. This fest has run for TWO MONTHS, concluding at the end of June. It overlaps the monthly thematic fests. The idea was to finish works you have already started.

Cottoncandy Bingo fest hosted by [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith. It's a return to the delights of the old [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo community, featuring positive prompts for upbeat stories.

In July we have:

I have made bingo in my 5-1-16 card for the Finish It Bingo fest. 

On the Pieces from Notes bingo set, I made the middle row:
"The Best of All Instructors"
Make This Card
"Say Words of Healing"

On Incomplete Pieces I finished drafting and polishing "Coming in from the Cold: Tuesday."

This is much less than I hoped to accomplish, but I lost ~2 weeks of worktime due to air conditioning failure.  >_<  Ah well, I got a few pieces done that I probably would not have otherwise.

Once upon a time, there was a wonderful bingo community called [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo. It hasn't been active since 2014, so I decided to revive the concept with this fest. It was my favorite bingo, and my audience's favorite as well.

The Cottoncandy Bingo fest runs June 1-30. Its goal is to inspire people to create happy, upbeat things and the prompts lean in that direction.  So much of entertainment has become bleak or hostile; it's nice to get away from that and make positive things instead.  Of course, you can take your prompts in any direction you wish. All fandoms and formats are welcome; there is no length requirement either.

You might like the Butterfly, Fireplace, Happy Face, Heart, Kite, Layer Cake, Picnic Table, Sun, Tree, or Waterfall bingo patterns.

I didn't even come close to making bingo this time.  I liked the prompts I got, but I rarely write about only one character, and even ignoring that parameter I didn't get many.  Also none of them got sponsored yet, although one is online free.  Here's what I wrote ...

B3 -- refuge, "A Safe Refuge from the World" (Polychrome Heroics: Officer Pink

I1 -- introvert, "The Love We Give Our Fragile Craft" (An Army of One)
I3 -- self-awareness, "As My Awareness Increases" (Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies)

N1 -- public places, "Rise Above the Earth" (Polychrome HeroicsCassandra)
N2 -- learning what you like, "Dichroic" (Polychrome HeroicsShiv)

G2 -- caught in the act, "Rotten Fruit" (Love Is For Children)

O5 -- dominance & submission, "For the Sake of Reformation" (Polychrome HeroicsPain's Gray)
