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

While we're all getting used to our new lodgings, or, living in two places at once, like Dr Watson, living both at Baker Street and elsewhere, we'd like to take the opportunity of reminding you of some others who are also in the neighbourhood.

[community profile] watsons_woes have now moved to Dreamwidth permanently, and are currently discussing continuing with the annual JWP (July Writing Prompts) this year.  So do go and add your voice, and take the opportunity to write more about our lovely Dr Watson.

And although our elder brother comm [community profile] sherlock60 is currently only archiving, from August, when Round 6 begins [personal profile] alafaye will be taking up the reins and there will be posting on both Dreamwidth and Livejournal.

We know many of our readers and commenters have a fondness for Dr Watson.  We would encourage you therefore to join Miss Mary Sutherland in dusting off your typewriter or Mr Jabez Wilson and purchase a penny bottle of ink, a new quill pen and several sheets of foolscap paper, so that you too can participate in the wonders of watsons_woes July Writing Prompts.

Every day there will be a new prompt to provide inspiration.  And rest assured, all your other favourite characters can be involved too.  Indeed, for this month only, it is not necessary to batter, bruise or generally make life difficult for the good doctor - unless you wish to of course.

And, if your contribution is under 500 words, and fulfils the rest of the requirements of this community, do please feel free to cross-post here.  Alternatively, if it would be easier for you, a summary post containing links to your relevant ficlets/artwork would be quite acceptable.

But if you do not wish to write, you may produce artwork or just go along to read and be entertained.  We understand there will even be derivatives from the One True Telling.

For further details I encourage you to head over to Watson's Woes: Coming in Three Weeks.
