A contest to award the best campfires on Writing.com. LAST DAY!
Banner for Light My Fire Contest

"Campfire Creatives are a fun and interactive way of writing with a group. Imagine sitting around a campfire with a group of your friends."

These words captured my attention when I first joined WDC almost two years ago. Now, after meeting many greet friends and writers, I want to shine a light on one of the best parts of Writing.com. Unfortunately, Campfires are often overlooked in recognition. With this contest I hope to honor some of the most outstanding writing experiences out there on the web while spreading the word on this great activity.

People discover hidden powers.Is it chance? Or is there something more sinister behind it?

Well, the inspiration for this campfire is that ever since I was little... I always wanted to be a super hero. :P I was the girl who ran around with a towel for a cape and an extra pair of underwear for the outside. I absolutely adore this campfire. Why? Well read it! The characters all seem very real, and form very real, yet sometimes unexpected relationships. Also it was one of my first campfires and was how I got to know a lot of my good friends here. And all the writing is awesome, as we all seem to have good chemistry with one another. I claim no sole appreciation for this work... because without the others and their characters, it just wouldn't be the same story. :)

What was your inspiration behind your campfire?
What makes this campfire your favorite?
Why do you think it deserves recognition?

I created the campfire Crystal Fire as a way to bounce ideas and concepts off the reactions of other people, and to have fun while doing it. I have always enjoyed world-building, but sometimes the best way to do it is with other writers who can point out the flaws in one idea, or give ideas in another. What makes this campfire work so well stems from the writers themselves, who are superb in their respective skills, and the addition of a forum.
 Crossroads: Crystal Fire & Desert Blood  (13+)
A forum where writers of the related campfires Crystal Fire &Desert Blood can talk shop.

The forum helped us to keep the plotlines, characters, and other elements in a consistent flow that we all agreed on as it developed. It also helped greatly when we decided to take the set of characters from the original campfire and interweave them with the characters of our second campfire.

Desert Blood  (13+)
Step into a world where life exists from one drop of water to another.

The combination of these two campfires, interweaving events and plots together, is what makes this campfire unique. It keeps new ideas spinning, characters adapting, and plot unfolding while keeping us with plenty of new material.

This is the tale of the struggle between Jonas and Lourntav, and all caught between them.

Many of the writers I've invited are those who I've worked with in the past, and who I knew would make this story anything but a typical fantasy. I've invited other writers I've never written with, as well, and their unique writing styles have caused for some unexpected turns to the story.
This campfire is really just starting, and everyone who reads it seems to agree with my sentiment that it has the potential to become something truly amazing. We're not quite there yet, but I know we will be.
