-giggles- Now I'm excited! Squee! Having writer friends is AWESOME!!!!



I had a ball doing that Feyfolken, deliberately did everything completely different so no one could guess. Rachel the Breton did the same thing, she won it like 6 years running and every year you'd try to guess which one was hers - couldn't tell which one was her at all, I was surprised every time. I broke her winning streak with that dark story (about the 6th House in Morrowind) - see, I only write about Oblivion, so no one guessed. People see what they expect to see.

You guys will never tell it was me who wrote my story evillol.gif

3,000-7,000 words tops usually, I think Mustard said he'd consider 8,000 but let him tell you.

HEY KOB, you can't start writing the story till the contest starts, that would be cheating.

That is one of the reasons why in these contests they usually give a subject like "A day in the life of..." so no one knows what it is going to be about till the contest starts so there can't be any cheating. (We all have the same amount of time to write the same number of words about the same relative subject matter).

I'm happy that there is a theme. My story would never get finished if a theme isn't come up with. I have a really bad case of writer's block.

I've got (what I think is) a pretty good theme for the competition, which should hopefully allow for plenty of room for creative manouevre whilst still giving a reasonably useful/clear guideline.

Actually, shall I go and post up the competition thread? Give people a timeline of a month to write a story between 3 and 7 thousand words and then announce the winner two weeks later? Seems to me to be a reasonable timeframe to do it all in, but I'm willing to listen to ideas.

A month to write sounds great, that allows for RL issues to still be handled.
