What we're about
Upcoming events (3)
Join us for tdotSpec's fifth "One-Shot" anthology! An intense writing event with a whole anthology crafted in less than 24 hours!
The meeting will be held on Discord, where we'll start the official clock together, and team up for writing sprints followed by optional feedback and edit exchanges.
The theme has not yet been decided. However, the vote for the theme is live. You can cast your vote for your favourite themes for this year's event here using the ranked voting system: https://www.myvote.io/contest/5720218853703680
You will need the voting code: TDOTSPEC2021
Once the winning theme is determined, you can go do all the brainstorming, researching, outlining, or any other preparation that you want--as long as the actual writing of the story is done after we officially start the clock.
If you have any questions please reach out to either myself or David via direct message. Looking forward to an amazing event and seeing y'all there!

In the interests of time please limit to a ~2000 word maximum. You will probably also want to share a copy of your work in an online format (Google Docs, Dropbox, etc.) if you'd like others to be able to follow along and/or provide non-verbal feedback.
