Suggested by my esteemed colleague, and inspired by thoughts of holiday buckets and spades, the prompt for this month is:



Hand Utensils




Use a utensil in your story in some way: a spade, a mop, an iron, a gun… Something from the kitchen, something from the laboratory, something from the armoury… Whatever you like!


As always, you needn’t use the prompt if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.

This month’s activity is:



Letters of Apology




Mr. Holmes of course often has much to apologise for but he’s not the only one. A client perhaps writes to express regret they ever doubted him. The Diogenes Club writes to a member to apologise for locking him in the gentlemen’s facilities overnight, it not being the done thing to call for help.


And here is an example, care of Mrs. Hudson:


Dear Mr. Holmes,

I do apologise that I did not see your note saying you would be returning in the early hours of the morning.

I hope the swelling is going down and contrary to my statement in the heat of the moment, I will not be charging you for the new frying pan after all.

Yours, Sybilla Hudson (Mrs.)

Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse.

We’re well into summer now, so the prompt for this month is:



Dog Days



You could write about a hot summer’s day. Write about a dog from canon, or write about an original dog character. There’s Holmes' infamous left canine, and Sirius the Dog Star. Perhaps a character is being dog in the manger, or is being dogged by bad luck. Maybe you should let sleeping dogs lie, because you can't teach an old dog new tricks...


As always, you needn’t use the prompt if you don’t wish to. Once you’re a member, you can post what and when you want—as long as you keep to the 500 words or less wordcount and the ACD Holmes ‘verse. AUs, crossovers and fusions are all permitted, as long as the characters remain essentially recognisable as the original ACD versions.

And so, a little later than usual (^^”), here is this month’s activity! Inspired by this week’s prompt and Okapi’s fic, my estimable co-mod has suggested we try:


Postcards Home



That is, we’re going to write short messages that could be sent on a postcard—up to three sentences. Your ‘from’ and ‘to’ can be put in the subject line of the comment.


An example from [livejournal.com profile] thesmallhobbit:



From Watson To Holmes

Enjoying Dorset. Have found a delightful secluded beach. Lestrade would send his regards but is currently otherwise occupied.




Yes… (Not quite sure I understand...) Anyway, please leave all your messages in the comments, ready for posting home!

We know a number of you like to write about our dear friends Mr Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Many of you are particularly fond of the good doctor, and for one month only there are further opportunities to write about him, and his companions, at Watson's Woes on Dreamwidth.  That month, as the title of the post indicates, is July.

And for this month, our dear doctor does not need to even suffer woes, but merely enjoy his adventures, or doze peacefully by the fire.  In fact, it is possible to feature the doctor in other places and times.  We understand versions of Dr Watson in the early twenty-first century are very popular.

Each day there will be a different prompt.  And for this year the prompts will be alternating between prompts from previous years and new prompts, with the option to do one or the other or both.  (Or even just chose the prompts which take your fancy.)

There is no need for expensive paper, the back of an envelope will do, although if you are using one of Mr Holmes' envelopes you will need to write around the hole made by his knife.  Cheap ink is perfectly acceptable, or you may use a pencil, or even a typewriting machine if you are in the fortunate position to own one.

Further details are available here: Coming in 10 Days
