I'm pretty sure I've said, "Please no enormous prompts" in my pinned post
I feel uncomfortable when the prompt takes up more real estate than the three paragraphs I use as teaser material.
Preserving this because prompts are destroyed when I'm done with the story of the day:
The Story Teller's Rant! -- yes this is my poem, heh,
(SLs are Story Lines – the Lament of the Gamer)
I must admit I'm in distress.
Oh yes, oh yes, I'm a mess.
Though this fault is not my own.
It is, instead, what you've done.
You beg me for SLs quite strong,
And so I write all day long.
So many stories quite complete
So many that they must compete.
Yet, still moaning, you refuse.
Gaming time you misuse.
Blame me, you will in distaste,
The game, you say has gone to waste.
So enough I say, boredom comes.
Yet along my games I hum.
You gripe and refuse to play along.
So cry to another don't sing that song.
I don't care so go away!
Let me have fun, let me play!
SLs you want, I will be bold.
Write them yourself I'm done.
Please don't use unadulterated, copyrighted material as a prompt. Lyrics, vast chunks of someone else's book, or famous lines from famous TV shows or movies are things that could get me into trouble for using them.
The stories I post on Peakd get votes, the votes become tokens that I can (eventually) turn into money. If I'm making a profit out of someone else's IP, the lawyers could sue me out of the water.
I prefer to remain cautious about this. Thanks.
Emojis and wingdings could cause problems in an eventual published anthology as Smashwords has an ever-increasing list of things they do not like. This is dependent entirely on the hill I have to climb getting 2020's Year of Instants through that particular mill.
If you want to codify a prompt for amusement purposes, please:
Thanks for understanding.
