Hi all,

Here we have the latest workshop there has been a tonne of input from members as to what it should involve and I would like to thank all who gave their views. DKC and I had a chat a few nights and finalised the theme of the workshop.

DKC loved the ideas of Lfan and theone9 and have combined it to produce what in my mind is one of the most innovative workshops that we have ever undertaken.

The idea is for each writer to receive a pm from me with a list of ten (10) items and one (1) power, your story must use at least seven (7) of the items listed and the power listed must be used, but the use of other powers is of course welcomed but you must use listed power as your primary power.

If you want to write a story please reply to this thread and I'll pm you, your list, at the end of the writing period I’ll publish the table with all the lists so that you can see what other writers have had to work with.

This workshop is complex so the writing period will be extended to 3 months, so the starting date will be Sunday the 26th of February and the ending date will be Sunday 28th May 2017.

The prize is a kindly donated supergirl costume from Sarge395, you will need to finalise the shipping with Sarge395 and you will also get to choose the next long workshop theme.

I'm in. I've got no use for the costume cuz I'm a single guy, but what're the odds I'd win anyway? I'm really in it for the challenge and novelty of the topic selection

I will give it a shot. As I have never won, I am not too worried about that and I already have a costume from Sarge.

I'm in. April and May are busy months for me, but I've got a two-week vacation coming up in March, so I'll try to make some headway then. Come on, super-mathematics!

Will writers be allowed to "swap" items?

The 10 items are the same for everyone, right? Only the super power is different, correct? I was hoping for super intuition but I didn't get it.

Nope, each list is individual up to number 10. After that some people will get duplicates.

I like the look of this! Very innovative. If I wasn't tied down with life and just stuck on Internet through the mobile instead of a laptop at the moment (yeah, yeah, excuses, excuses!) I would have a crack at this!
All the best to the writers - looking forward to the results!

What I was thinking - I guess for another time....perhaps the next WS. Is we get a pool of words, topics or powers. And draft them, much like a fantasy football team. Of course its probably a bit more complicated to do, and those who decide to opt in....need to be in.

I see that Fats is busy drafting lists....although I love the enthusiasm....I have a feeling we'll only get a quarter of those participants that opted in. Its hard enough to write a quality story as it is....nevermind, using a select brand of words, topics and powers.

I don't know if Fats is repeating his words or powers, but if you Opt In.....Please participate. It'd be a shame if someone get superstrength, or a number of great powers and then decides not to participate.

all the lists are unique, that's why it took so long to draft them, there are themes on what each row is so there is an actual thought process that's bee used, all except the last row where that row is completely random, the powers are all not the usual FISS powerset, I found a great list of alternative superpowers that can be used in future workshops.
