This post will serve as an ongoing prompt pool for the community. We will now be doing three prompts posts a week with the following categories: Lyrics, Quotes, and Miscellaneous.

What is Miscellaneous you ask? It's going to include things like Game Features, Keywords, Situations, Characters and Tropes. That's right, it's the catch-all category.

Here is how the week is going to break down.

Monday: Song Lyrics
Wednesday: Miscellaneous
Friday: Quotes

So how do you submit a prompt? It's easy! It's pretty much the same that it's always been. Here's what my submission might look like:

Lyrics: "Deep in my heart I'm concealing/Things that I'm longing to say/Scared to confess what I'm feeling/Frightened you'll slip away " ("You Must Love Me," Madonna)

Miscellaneous: Drama, Sandy Bruty, All Love is Unrequited, Waking up from a nightmare

Quotes: “Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” (Dr. Seuss)


So feel free to submit as many prompts as you want. After all prompts you've submitted have been used, I will leave a comment stating so.

Happy submitting!

Goodbye and thank you

Hey Simspiration friends.

So this is a post I admittedly should have written three months ago. I apologize that it's taken this long. Life happens to everyone, and sometimes it happens so much that you turn around and suddenly wonder where the time went.

We as mods are officially retiring the Simspiration community. We've all had a lot of fun with it over the years and it's been amazing to see all the writing that happened because of the prompts and seasonal games. As activity in the Sims community seems to have slowed and many players moved on or switched to different platforms like Tumblr, we're putting the LJ comm to bed. Thank you to everyone who's contributed and we hope that those of you who are still writing (whether it's for Sims or in other formats) will continue to do so for a long time to come.

And we would like to belatedly congratulate the eight Simmers who completed the Myshuno! challenge (katrisims, mlek13, esmeiolanthe, mzyra, silverbelle1220, celebkiriedhel, lauriempress, and strange_tomato), as well as the two who went on to complete blackout (esmeiolanthe and lauriempress)! Thanks for participating!

Best wishes and happy writing,

The Simspiration Mods

Myshuno! 2014: Blackout Claims Post

This is the claim post for blackout claims only. Please DO NOT respond to this post with Myshuno! claims or questions. You may claim Myshuno! here. You may ask questions here.

Please read the following instructions carefully before you post a claim.

To Claim

1. Write pieces for your prompts! You may cross off prompts on your card when you have written pieces for them. Remember, only ONE prompt per piece, and each piece MUST be at least 100 words.

2. Post the pieces to your journal, with a header that includes the word count of the piece and the entire prompt. [The mods should be able to see both of those things clearly without having to hunt through the piece or look up your card.] As long as the header includes those two things, you may add whatever else you like. We do suggest ratings, and warnings when appropriate, but they are not necessary.

3. Cross off all twenty-four prompts on your card. [You get automatic credit for the free space if you don't want to use it as a "writer's choice" option.]

4. When you have completed all of the prompts from your card, comment to this post with:

"I am claiming blackout."
A link to your card
The names of prompts you wrote up, in their entirety
Corresponding links to each piece

We will then glance at your links to double check your claim, and once we have, we'll clear it for you!

The deadline for posting blackout claims is January 1st.

If you have any questions, do not ask them here. Post them in the question post linked above.

Enjoy, and happy writing!

"I am claiming Myshuno!"
A link to your card

Note: You need only claim your first Myshuno! You will hit several on the way to blackout, but you don't have to post them all, and you will only get credit for it once.

The deadline for posting Myshuno! claims is November 1st. Plan accordingly!

Myshuno! 2014: Myshuno! Claims Due Soon

Good evening and happy Tuesday, denizens of LJ!

This is your friendly reminder that Myshuno! claims are due in ten days. Up/down, left/right, corner to corner, through the free space or not, whatever you like! Those claims MUST be in by 12:00am on 11/1 in your timezone. Myshuno! claims will not be accepted after that date, although you can still go for blackout until the end of the year!

On Sunday, we'll be posting the claims posts for both Myshuno! and blackout. These posts will have the claiming instructions and will do double duty as your final reminder for submitting Myshuno! claims. (Although if you follow us on Twitter or Tumblr, there may be extra reminders there!)

In short: WRITE ALL THE THINGS, and be sure to tell us about it before November! :D

Prompts for celebkiriedhel!

Hi everyone!

Due to a technical glitch celebkiriedhel's original sign up post was hidden and they have not yet received any prompts!  Their post is now visible so if everyone could please head over to the sign up post ASAP and leave some prompts that would be awesome!  Their post is here.

Also please feel free to leave up to four prompts so that celebkiriedhel has a good variety from which to choose!

Thank you!

General Prompts Post and a Few Reminders

Hello everyone!

We have just a little over 24 hours to go until Myshuno! officially starts! So here are some last little details for you.

1) Please be sure to post a link to your finished card in the comments on this post. That will allow us mods to verify your claims for Myshuno and Blackout later on!  A PDF and a Microsoft Word version of the empty card along with instructions for filling it out can be found in the original sign up post.

2) I think most everyone has enough prompts at this point but if you need a few more prompts you can fill in those empty spaces with any of the general prompts found here.

3) If you have any questions feel free to post here or in our rules and FAQ thread.

Good luck everyone!  I can't wait to see what you write!

Myshuno! 2014: IT IS COMING

As I was typing the title, I heard it in Ian McKellen's voice as if he were playing Gandalf in the Moria scene from FOTR. You're welcome.

Which is to say that Myshuno! 2014 starts on WEDNESDAY. Sign up if you haven't! Go prompt people! Make your cards! In fact, if you've already made your card, post a link to it in a comment on this entry! You can upload it to Photobucket or TinyPic or whatever as long as the mods are able to view it--very freakin' important for the claims portion of the challenge.

October is coming! GO FORTH AND CONQUER.
