So excited about board three!!!!

This is a great mix of prompts on these prompt cards!
I'm exited to see what our writers come up with for them.

Happy writing everyone!

Nice! These are such interesting prompts, I'm officially tempted.

Thank you, Mods! Question: if one was considering writing a whole board, and was thinking about how to organize them, would the recommendation would be to lump them together in a series, or would chapters of a single fic be acceptable?

-- fortes775 on June 30, 2023 04:05pm

 @fortes775: Chapters in a single fic is fine, just make sure to to label which drabble is for which prompt clearly.

Wonderful! Thank you!

Board Two looks fun!

May we post cropped screenshots of the bingo drabble boards in our story notes, or as our drabble banner? If so, who do we credit? See example:Bingo selection example

Can I still post my story as part of the event if not every chapter is based on a prompt? So I have 6 or 7 chapters based on these prompts, and 3-4 which are just part of the story but are not connected to any of the prompts.

-- mcgnagallsarmy on July 01, 2023 11:17am

@mcgnagallsarmy yes that's fine!

-- EllieRose101 on July 01, 2023 11:47am

@JustWriter: you can post cropped screencaps in your story notes, or as part of a banner image, but it cannot be your complete banner image.

Prompt graphics were made by Cawthraven.

Can you use more than one prompt per drabble?


-- PaganRose on July 02, 2023 06:56pm

I realise the answer is probably gonna be 'no, way too much work' but would there maybe be a way of listing what stories are a reaction to specific prompts? 

-- Geliot99 on July 02, 2023 10:38pm

@PaganRose: sorry, no. One prompt per drabble. 

-- EllieRose101 on July 03, 2023 02:01am

@Geliot99: we have no way to code for that. It's up to authors/artists to make label which work is a response to which prompt. 

-- EllieRose101 on July 03, 2023 02:02am

Can we use prompts from different boards as a wildcard - hope so because I love a prompt but it is not on the board I will use.

-- nmcil on July 03, 2023 09:32am

@nmcil: Yes, that's fine!

-- EllieRose101 on July 04, 2023 06:22am

Do I post drabblemania 2023 myself or do you guys help once I post the drabble and labor it a drabble with the prompt?

-- Spuffyfangirl28 on July 06, 2023 11:10pm

@Spuffyfangirl28: you post your drabbles yourself, making sure to tick the relevant box to indicate your work is part of the event, as per the screenshots in the post here:


Please label your drabbles with which prompt they relate to.
