Hello everyone and welcome back to Prose-ject, where the fun and fantastic stray into the odd and awkward. This month's challenge is called Mission Mimicry, and that's because it's about honouring others and being the best mimic. 



Confused? I'll explain.

Every writer has their own unique voice, like a signature. This voice allows their readers to distinguish their work from those of other writers and to become fans of their work. Whether you are just starting out, or an accomplished author, your voice is your watermark. It defines and is defined by you and you alone.



Mission Mimicry 2016 is...


Mission Mimicry is an event designed to test and challenge this voice. Essentially, I want you to read the work of an author that you admire or enjoy, and write your own unique piece in a similar or identical style. This isn't about plagiarism or copying another, it is more about identifying the individual qualities that one can define as a person's 'voice' and analysing it. In a way, it is a lesson in literary transfiguration, and thus,  I'm dedicating this post to the most kickass transfigurator I know: Minerva McGonagall, and her badass awesome.

 



This will serve to:

1. Help you to understand some of the nitty gritty pieces of that particular writer's nuance
2. Highlight differences between your own voice and theirs while...
3. Allowing you to connect with and identify your voice with clarity and new understanding.




I know that this challenge will not appeal to everyone, and in fact many people may think I have lost my mind.



I have and that is beside the point... .

But Prose-ject is nothing if not a bit crazy, and it is entirely up to you whether you participate.

So for those who want to gather up new perspectives on theirs and other people's work, here is everything you need to know:



What Do I Have To Do?



:bulletred: Mission Mimicry will run from 12am GMT May 1st to 12am GMT June 1st, though later entries will be accepted.


:bulletorange: This is NOT a contest, there will be no prizes, only encouragement.



:bulletyellow: All entries will be collected in The Mission Mimicry folder. Please either submit them yourself or note us :).



:bulletgreen: Please disclose in your artist's comments the following:
        - Link to this journal
        - The author/artist you are mimicking


:bulletblue: We adhere to dA's guidelines of submissions. If you attack a fellow deviant in your piece, it will not be accepted.


Dark Blue Bullet - F2U! Feel free to share this challenge around a bit to anyone you think would enjoy it :)



:bulletpurple: Kick ass and stay awesome!



Shards of dismembered crockery amass beneath her sneakers, crunching and snapping as she walks across the empty room. The only colour is the door, its cobalt timbers iridescent amongst the stark desolation where vivacity comes to die. His back, stone greeting polyester, stood tall in his seat, staring blankly towards the door.

As the chill catches her breath, shivers wracking her malnourished body, he makes no sound. No breath visibly escapes the grey lips hiding amidst the pallid skin; no shakes nor twitches nor stretches.
She peers at the door, a slight rotation that takes over her whole form as she wonders what awaits those who choose the blue door. Its brass handle welcomes her and moves effortlessly against her fingertips.

A golden glow and cloaking warmth leak from the opening, beckoning her forward.

"One last glance" she thinks as she steps into the doorway; screaming as he is standing an inch from her, limbs contorted awkwardly about him. The glazed look is gone, replaced by a demented stare and a chilling smile.

      “You cannot go. The blue door is not for the living” his voice chimes.



Two chairs sit in a row in a small white room without windows. The only colour comes from the door, its vivid emerald paint livening up the icy backdrop.
The Blue Door
Just something that came out of me. Didn't think I was this creepy but here we are.
Loading...
A darkness nought can penetrate,
Abyss of purely desperate thoughts
The hollow dreams and piercing screams
Haunting consciousness and dreams
Though as they take and aim to break
Rising waters fill this lake
No cares ensnared shall ever bear
The fruits of this dense disrepair.

Limbo’s languishing lament,
A callous, cutting, crushing tide
That strips the bones and sears the skins
As we are all the same within
Where one would wield a weathered knife
With which to flay away a life
The experts in the room agree;
The mind creates death’s symphony.

Thanks for bringing prompts and encouragement to the Written Revolution. I hope that the project is successful, even though I don't get to participate in DA stuff very often. I'm encouraged to see collaboration across the Lit Community. I hope the idea takes root and becomes a habit. I know that people belong to multiple groups, but it's nice to see those groups working together to build the community.
