Hi, and welcome to Rainbow Fiction! We're a relaxed writing community for original fiction. Our local theme is colors as the names of our challenge lists, and the prompts for each are related somehow. You can find those over in [community profile] rainbowlists.

This here is our introductory, getting-to-know-you post. We'd like you to comment with the name you want us to know you by, your pronouns, and a bit about you and your story. We're interested in your story background and your characters, and we'd also like to hear about your writing philosophy. Do you write for fun? To work toward the goal of getting published? A way to interact with other people? Like to read other writing and connect that way?

Anything you'd like us to know, go for telling us here. A special welcome to members, new or old, participating in [community profile] getyourwordsout. YES YOU CAN DO IT.

Hi everybody! I am delighted and honoured to be able to announce that completion banners are up and running again. I've been building new resources to allow for (hopefully) some quick-and-easy banner creation, and have completed the first page of banner-fills. It will definitely take time to get through all 11 current pages, but I'm hopeful that we can make these a regular scheduled part of the community again. Have the first couple of folks'-worth; I'll be putting together more fills from page 1 as I get time.

Have you completed one of the community goals, but haven't taken credit yet? Be sure to post to the provided link with what you completed and, if you completed a multiple or used a variety of prompts, specify how much or what qualified the completion.

Please feel free to take the badges that you've won and display them in your journal, or wherever you like to keep your trophies. You earned them, great work!

Without further ado, here are the first banners:
