The Wyrm is a writing community for writers of all abilities and genres, and is open to both original fiction and fan fiction. At the beginning of every month, one of the mods - herecirm or rainechan - will post a list of themed prompts. You can then choose a prompt to inspire a piece of writing - be it drabble or short story.
We recommend that you join the group in order to see all the posts, as most people display their work for Member's Only. :)


1. All writing must be put beneath an LJ cut.
2. Here at the Wyrm we encourage people to comment on others work - just as I'm sure you'd like people to comment on yours! However, drama and bitching will not be tolerated. Critique must be constructive.
3. Please tag your entries if you can. For example, if I had written a Doctor Who fanfic for the May 2010 prompts, I would tag it like this: author - herecirm, fan fiction - doctor who, prompts - senses, sci-fi

The following form must be posted with every entry, above the LJ cut:

Q. Do I have to write every single day?
A. No - unless you want to! There will be enough prompts for you to use them daily, but it's not required.

Q. Do I have to use the prompts in order?
A. Nope. Pick whichever ones you want.

Q. Should posts be public or only viewable to members?
A. It's totally up to you. All prompt set posts will be public, but you can make your own entries private if you prefer.

Q. Is there a word limit?
A. No, although remember that high word counts seem to put people off of reading on LJ - so don't be surprised if you don't get many comments on your 10,000 word story!
