We are getting closer to next Wendsday when I will stop accepting names. Maybe you will get a nice story, or cute drawing, or even something irl? Who knows! That's the fun! A repost, now.
The rules are simple. Artists and writers come together, give their names to someone, who then dishes them out later, and tells them who they are santa for, then they have to write, or draw, as a gift to the artist they are chosen for.
I wanted to do this, so contact me if you are interested. I will put your name and others into a hat, on a slip of paper, and draw them at random.
I'll tell you who you are giving the gift to, and then you will make something for them, without telling them.
When I tell you who you are making what for, that means it has started, and you can create a journal saying "What I want from Secret Santa" Or, make a journal saying "surprise me" Depending on what you want.
IF YOU DO THIS YOU MUST BE ABLE TO FINISH YOUR PROJECT BY THE 25TH!!!!!
That means, don't just write crap, and don't just do it to get free art. I will message everyone who entered and ask if they are finished, and when they say yes, then the art will be shared. If, by Christmas, I have received no word from you, or if you say something like "Dude I haven't even started" I will alert your secret Santa not to give you your gift till you finish, or, if I feel that you have no intention of doing it, then to not give it to you at all.
With that said, who wants to sign up?
One small edit though, if you wish to keep certain kinks out of your drawing or story, please post it in your journal. Remember to make the journal as soon as you can s your secret santa will have some idea what you want. And, keep it somewhat vague, or go into detail, don't specifically ask for a drawing or story without asking me first if your santa draws or writes. You can write a "scene" for what you want, i.e give detail of a picture or something, and it can be incorperated into a story, or drawing.
TIME is an issue. Don't ask for a novel, nor a comic, just a modest story, or a nice picture. If they want to right you a book, or a comic, that is from their generosity, not from your selfishness.
This is a nice way to give, and to make new friends. When it is time to give, you can post your art or story and then send the link to the person you are santa-ing for!
Let's get alot of people and make this a big thing!
