Before The Competition Starts

Before the competition starts, it is allowed and encouraged to:
  • Have a concrete story idea and synopsis that all Crewmates have agreed upon.
  • Have a full roster of characters from all Crewmates, including competed Character Profiles.
  • Have plotted and outlined to your Crew's content.
Any in-story writing before the competition starts is not allowed.

Once The Competition Starts

Your Ship's Mission: write 2500 words a week as a Crew.

If a Ship fails to complete their Mission, the Ship will have a one-time Lifeboat. The Crew must write 4000 words in the next week to continue in the competition.

If a Ship does not accomplish the Lifeboat Mission or does not accomplish the regular Mission after using the Lifeboat, it will become a Ghost Ship. Ghost Ships are still encouraged to write, but they are out of the competition.

This is a competition about collaboration. So, if a Crewmate does not write for two weeks in a row, they will become a Ghost. As a Ghost, they may still contribute to the story, but their writing will not count towards the weekly 2500 word goal.
