5/13/02: I actually got a reponse submitted. Imagine that. ^_^; However, it's for one of "this week's" stimulus...but instead of creating a whole new "week", I'm just going to put it on the main page here.
9/6/00: I managed to find another submission that I had just sort of forgotten about, sitting in my inbox. ^_^; Sorry, Jason. Also, I think I'll just wait until I get at least three submissions for each week before I update them...
8/16/00: Finally another update...there wasn't much point in updating sooner, because it seemed like everyone was too busy to write. However, we're back now! And in honor of our thirteenth week, I've put up four stimuli! Woo!

The Sunburst Project is an experimental fiction project. The rules are simple; each week there will be several Stimuli, for example, a paragraph, a phrase, or a story beginning. Authors then write a story based upon a Stimulus, inspired by it or contininuing the ideas. Then, when the week is up, I will post all the stories for everyone's enjoyment, and new Stimuli will be posted. The fun comes in seeing what directions different authors have taken one idea in...it's like rays emanating from a single source. Hence, a Sunburst.
The Sunburst Project is different from normal Impro, in that stories aren't continued from week to week. Each week there's a new topic to write about. Several, in fact.
You can write things based on previous stimuli...But then your work gets buried on the Previous Weeks page. If you get your response in by the deadline, you get to see yourself displayed on the main page for an entire week! Compelling, isn't it? ^_^
However, as the whole point of the Sunburst Project is to see the different directions people take a certain idea in, you should feel free to submit respones to any stimuli you can find, even ones that already have lots of responses to them. But the idea is not to write responses to other respones, only to stimuli.
As a result, there are no queues. No registration is necessary. Simply send in your story whenever you want.
And one more thing...Be sure and read the news. There's sometimes important stuff in there.
