1. Does my muse have to be an alcoholic?
No, but he or she should suffer an addiction or be related to someone struggling with addiction. Some examples are: drug addiction, eating disorders, sex addiction, etc.
2. I'm signing up during the fourth month - where do I start?
All participants must start at Step One. The prompts are listed by step as we go, linking from the user info and tagged as 'prompt' in the main community. To remain active in the community, members must respond to one of the four prompts listed for whichever step you have reached once every three months (four prompts/year).
3.So, wait, not all muses will be on the same step at a time?
Correct. Your muse starts at step one no matter when he or she joins the program. If you wish you may respond to more than one prompt per step and/or you may move on to the next step right away, but only one step per three months is required.
4. Do I post to the community or my journal or what?
Please post your prompt responses to the main community and tag them with both your muse's tag (assigned when accepted). You may post to your own journal if you wish, most do. Introductions are also to be posted to the community.
5. How many muses can I have?
As many as you like, but they all have to remain active.
6. How many of each character can there be?
Only one in the community. The list is here. If there is a Tony Stark based in comic fandom in the community, we will not be accepting a Tony Stark based in movie fandom. There can be only one Tony Stark. If the muse you want is taken you may request to be added to the waiting list.
7. May I write in the third person for prompt responses?
Yes! Prompt responses may be ficlets, journal entries, chat logs etc. The only rule is a word count of 150+.
8. I am still confused!!
