This comm is active on both DW and LJ.

Welcome to 60 for 60: 60 word ficlets written for each of the 60 canon stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.

It's great fun, and easy too. Each week, beginning on Sunday, we'll be posting a very small ficlet based on just one of the original canon case stories (all of which are available online free!). Just 60 words once a week. Everyone with their own little take on a classic story of our detective, his doctor, and their vibrant world for everyone else to enjoy. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? And don't feel like you're committed to anything -- post just the weeks you feel like it!

So won't you consider joining us? You love Sherlock Holmes and fanfiction. You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't. Give it a thought. Join us. Let's have fun reading and writing together!

We hope to see you next Sunday for 60 for 60!


And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact either [personal profile] scfrankles or [personal profile] smallhobbit.



NB: We welcome anonymous comments but the community had some problems with spam on LJ. All anonymous comments will be screened, so there will be a short waiting period before they become visible.

There were also problems with spam posting, so the comm now uses moderated membership. Please rest assured though that all membership requests will be dealt with promptly--usually within 24 hours.



We have a sister (or rather "little brother") community [community profile] holmes_minor, where all forms of microfiction and poetry are allowed and where we write in the ACD Holmes ‘verse in general.



Posting instructions for 60 word ficlets:

1. The subject of your post MUST include the title of the canon story your fic is based on. You do not need to include "The Adventure of...", just the main part of the title. If your fic has a title of its own (optional), please put the canon title first, followed by a colon and your title. Example below:

The Devil's Foot: Smoke and Water

2. Your post must include the full text of your fic. Our ficlets are only 60 words long and this community was designed so readers could find all entries to read in one location. If you would like to include a link to a journal entry you may, but you MUST include the full text of your ficlet in posts to this community.

3. Tag your posts appropriately with rating and story abbreviation. All fics must be rated for content and tagged as such. NC-17 ratings must have the text behind an LJ cut. You also need to tag your story with the appropriate four letter canon story abbreviation, usually the first four letters of the title. A complete list of abbreviations can be found here.

4. Post headers should be as follows. Your title and author's notes are optional, and warnings are as needed. (Please do not post stories in which any participant in a sexual relationship is under 18.) Don't bother warning for slash.

Canon Story:
Title: (optional)
Author:
Rating:
Warnings: (if necessary)
Author's Notes: (feel free to put your notes after your fic, if you prefer)



There is also a collection on AO3 (and a tag 'Community: sherlock60'), if you wish to post your ficlets there too:
