Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why is the word count minimum 30,000?
A. Because goals are good for you.
Q. Can I use a work in progress?
A. Yes, but you must add at least 30k to it during the course of the challenge month in order to “win”.
Q. Can I write a crossover/fusion?
A. Yes, but the central theme must be set in the Harry Potter ‘verse.
Q. Can I start engaging in the challenge in the last week of the month like a total twat?
A. No, because I will have deleted your ass on Day 14 of the challenge if you haven’t posted at least once. I mean it and I’m not going to waste my precious, immensely valuable time emailing you about it either.
Q. Can I write a sequel to another story?
A. Yes, but it should stand on its own.
Q. Can the story be part of a larger arc?
A. As long as the story stands on its own as a complete work, yes.

A. No, but no less than 3 times a week during the course of the challenge.
Q. Can I post more than once a day?
Q. Is there a minimum post length?
A. 1,000 words
Q. Do I need to finish by 4/30 or can I keep working on my project after the challenge is finished?
A. If you fail to meet the deadline then you’ve not completed the challenge. I may or may not allow posting after the challenge ends.
Q. Is there a limit to title length?
A. No, but don’t be fucking ridiculous either.
