The first thing I thought of for a theme was "Science." Not sure why. Or maybe "School," since a bunch of people start school in August (I don't, but that's okay).

August Theme Choices!
If you would like to participate in the August Collab, please vote for a theme from the list by the end of Monday (23 July) and I will tally the votes on Tuesday.
You can sign up to participate in this thread: just cast your vote by stating which theme you'd like to do.
Let's give 2 or 3 weekends to work on it. So that would put us at ... *checks calendar* ... August 13th is a Monday. That would be the day that I need all of your entries so that I can post them on the 14th.
Feel free to make more than one entry, or team-up however you like!
Remember, it's open to all the creative arts, whether it's visual, music, writing, or some kind of combination.
Via PM, send me links to your entries by 20 August.
There's really no limit to the number of entries you can submit, and you can team-up with others for your projects. Pretty open, just like last time! I hope that we get as nice a spread of visual and written art, and music, too!
I'm going to make a short fill-in-the-blank comic, so let me know if you want to fill-in-the-blank as a collab.
"There's a little girl waiting in a garden. She's going to wait a long while, so she's going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she's patient, the days are coming that she'll never forget. Tell her she'll go to see and fight pirates. She'll fall in love with a man who'll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she'll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived. And save a whale in outer space. Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends."
(I used to write shorts all the time, though I haven't really had the opportunity to for a while. But as I look at this theme, the urge to write strikes me. xD)
Hmm ~ well, really, as long as you're doing the formatting for the forum (you just do the formatting when you send it to me in PM and then I copy-paste), it shouldn't be a problem. If you write a novella, you might want to provide a link instead, or have the first "page" given in the exhibit thread, and the rest is linked to elsewhere.
I didn't check the word length of either of the stories from July; they were easy to handle, if you want to check that thread:
Okay, so I'd like sign up for this but I can't guarantee that I'll be able to write something. I am having a bit of trouble with my laptop at home, and I'll be on holiday for a week in August, but I'll definitely try to get something done for this. <3
