Writing Contest

We have a CoS writing contest that makes it big, but some writers do not like basing their things off of something all ready created. So, I've decided that writers that like to share things that are not Harry Potter can do this contest.

Short Summery of Rules:

1. You must follow everything that is aplied. The Genre, the Topic, the Word Count, and the Other if there is one.

2. All entries must be turned in the Friday date the winner gives you.

3. You do not have to vote if you do not want to, but you can vote if even if you did not enter, and don't have to vote even if you did enter, but it is very apriciated and will help chose the winners. Votes must be in by Sunday GMT midnight.

4. Send all entries to either, ginnypotter19, Lucybird, or LoonyMagic. Send votes to Lucybird. Do not vote until after GMT midnight Friday.

5. All writers get two weeks to write their story, instead of just one.

6. I will see about banners if I can find people who make them.

7. The winner of the voted best story will chose the next genre, topic, word count, and other if there is one. So, all participants must send in what they want as the next theme just in case they win. If the winning entry does not have any of those requirements then the second place winner will chose and so on.

8. Do not tell people what entry is yours, it is fun to keep it secret until you find out who the winners are, then you can tell.

9. Must keep it apropriate. Now sexual content or slash please.

10. Read the entries please, if you want to participate, they will be posted in another thread here in the writers thread, but you can leave your feedback or questions here.

Thank you, and if you have any questions just ask me here so other particapents can see as well.

As of now, I have to search for people that are willing to help. If you would like to make banners, take in and post the votes, or anything to help just owl me please. It is nice to have help, and the banners are fun to know you have a small reward at the end. Please keep the banners in the CoS limits though. .

~ginnypotter19~

Topic: Friends hanging out.
Genre: Comedy/Drama/Every Day Life
Word Count: Challenge Buster: 1,000 Words or more.
Other: Not now.

Re: Writing Contest

Question: Can it be about anything within the genre?

Re: Writing Contest

When there is a slash in the Genre, like Comedy/Serious, it mostly means that it can either be a comedy or something serious or both. It mostly means that if you know what you're writing is Dark/Angst *that is the only one that does not go for the / rule because that's how you actualy write the genre* then it is not acceptable for that particular contest. Hope this answers your question.

You may now start sending me your entries if you're ready. Remember, you still have two weeks.

Re: Writing Contest

the first post reads an awful lot like something someone posted in the writer's thread, is all i'm saying.

Re: Writing Contest

Don't worry, it's just that we still write!!! I usually send mine at the last moment! If I manage to complete the story on time, of course.

Re: Writing Contest

Hmm... this is harder then I thought it would be... having trouble coming up with ideas. I had one but was like meh, cos it didnt flow. Does the story necessarily have to have an ending???

Re: Writing Contest

Try visiting the "writer's block" thread! Or get some of your older ideas and use them for the story.
I guess you could always leave an open ending, in the style of "and-who-knows-what-happend-after-all-that", but it is usually a risk because some readers hate to be left with questions.

Re: Writing Contest

Hm. That's what I've done in the past. If I have to have exerpts, I kind of like leaving it a bit open to speculation.
