    January 2017 

    Here we are again once more sending our short stories into the breach, braving the horde of members on the blog who with some luck and the odd threat of fangs biting their arms off, will read, enjoy and even join in with our January 2017 A Month of Short Stories…….

     

    This time around though I’m going to try something a bit different. We all know that Character Builds are the main stay of the site and only a stubborn wolf would consider their smaller realm of the TSC or whatever realm they dwell in to be just as important… With this in mind it would be an idea if we based AMOSS around Character Builds.

     

    However I do feel this is a bit too restrictive to some writers who are busy working on their own stories. One thing I don’t want to do is disrupt anyone’s creative flow. At the same time we have some Fallout groups who would benefit from any interest AMOSS could give them.

     

    Here’s what I’m going to do… 

    This year in AMOSS we will have three categories:

     

    AMOSS:CB

    This is for all the AMOSS stories based upon any builds in the CB group.

     

    AMOSS:FO

    This is for those stories based upon the Fallout world. I would ask that if anyone writes a crossover that they use the AMOSS:FO for the simple reason that it would highlight our Fallout groups.

     

    AMOSS:TES

    This includes Morrowind, Skyrim, Oblivion or any TES related story which don’t fall into the other categories.

     

    All you need to do is add the category at the start of the Blog Title/ToC of your story.

     

    As before a short story is a complete works of no more than 25,000 words or about half of one of *Lissette’s chapters. This doesn’t mean you have to write 25,000 words. It could be maybe five hundred or a thousand words. Remember everyone, all stories and poems are posted as Blogs.

     

    Once the Month is over I will add links to this event under the three categories. For those who would like to write about CB’s or Fallout then by all means have a word with the various hosts who are always so willing and ready to offer advice and a helping hand with any questions and suggestions. As always, you’ll find me in TSC so feel free to howl…

     

    *Ducks for cover….

    Well, as for me, I'll be having a look at Hissing-Little-Foot, Quentarii and Sotek's family. I think it's about time they actualy reached Vos. I might even spill how Sotek as a three year old Hatchling managed to kill three Slaughterfish...  Maybe....

    Not sure what I'll do this year. Last year was Going Elweyr and I was slated to write the sequel this mont, but to be honest, I'm a bit zonked. I did NaNo in November, ran a CB event, and then really hauled ass to finish my work on CA with Karver for Creativity month. If you get anything from me, it'll be later in the month.

    I'm working on something which was supposed to be a practice story/concept, but I'll use it for AMOSS. It involves sand, Altmers, Redguards and assassins.
