The Nsync Harvest Ball Challenge!
This year, instead of doing Poptober! We thought we would change things up a bit. Our Valensync Challenge did very well this year, so we thought we might do something similar for the fall to gear up for the very popular Secret Santa Challenge in December! Many of you are new, and that’s okay! We encourage all writers new, or established, to participate in our challenges! This is also a great way to get to know other fellow authors in our community! We hope many of you will participate in our NSYNC Harvest Ball! This is a fall inspired challenge, with keywords chosen by you that your “Ball Date” will include in their story to you! In exchange, you will write a story for your date with the same guidelines. We will try to pair people up as best as possible regarding the guys and subject matter.
Please take the survey here in order to take part in the challenge:
-Submissions for the challenge will take place Monday 8/31/15 to Monday 9/7/15
-Stories should be no less than 500 words, and must include the three key words your Ball Date has chosen
-Stories can start being posted October 25 through October 31. Please remember if you sign on for a story you must contact us ASAP if you cannot write your story so other arrangements can be made.

Reviews, comments, and things of that nature.
The most important part of the Archive is the community. We want each person who comes here to feel that it's a safe and encouraging place to explore creativity through writing. So let's take a moment to talk about leaving comments and reviews.
While most authors appreciate constructive criticism, I feel it's necessary for me to explain what exactly that is. Constructive criticism exists in the realm of actual, concrete, factual help to make a story better. For instance, telling someone that they switched verb tenses would be constructive. Telling someone you didn't like something stylistic, or related to tone of voice, point of view, or even about characters, is NOT constructive. Those sorts of things are opinions. Moreover, it's often flat out rude and often breaks down the goal we have of creating community.
Please keep in mind that we're all reading and writing FREE fanfiction. While I like to think that each of us is putting our creative best foot forward, none of us are attempting to create high brow works of literary genius. If you're enjoying a story, PLEASE tell the author exactly that. We LOVE hearing that. But if you're not enjoying a story, unless it's something that can (and needs to) be fixed--spelling errors, formatting issues, etc.--please keep that to yourself and keep it moving. Choose another story!
If you're interested in going deeper into the analysis of a story and its characters, consider letting us know that you're available for beta reading. And if you're thinking of leaving a review and you're not sure if it's constructive or not, please reach out to any of the admins.
Let's all live by Thumper's wise words: "If you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all."
A Note On Plagarism
I hate to have to do this. It's never something that goes over well in any type of fan fiction forum, but it must be said. The Submission rules have been revised slightly and I wanted to highlight that revision. Please remember, all the authors here work very hard to create their ideas, characters, visions, ect and it is very disheartening when that work is taken by someone and revised as their own unique vision. Please, when writing, consider this basic policy and if there is a question, ever, please do not post the work unless you have spoken with one of the Mods here or the author personally to get an OK. Thank you for your understanding.
1. NF has a Zero Tolerance Policy regarding plagiarism. The story you submit must be your own work! If you are caught plagiarizing you will be given three days to rewrite or delete the plagiarized section/chapter/story. If no action is taken within three days your account will be deleted.
NF.com also includes taking someone's unfinished story and finishing it without the original authors permission, and taking someones written plot line to incorporate into your own story without the original authors permission in our definition of plagiarism. If this occurs, violators will have three days to remove the story or their account will be deleted.

Happy July, fellow authors! Hard to believe that half the year is over already.
We have put up our new story of the month for July - JSCOutOfSync has been an author here for several years and after a long hiatus, she snuck in and updated her current story, On The Sidelines.
The new featured author for the month is also up at Unwritten 2.0 - we wanted to show Joey and Chris a little love so we interviewed one of our most active Joey/Chris writers, DiamondDoss. Antics ensued, so make sure to check out the fun! https://nfunwritten.wordpress.com/
