sounds like a cool idea I'll give it a try, I've written a little before but not quite this much, should be fun.

Where finished novels must post?


Please use the group Jorlwind highlighted in his first post. More detailed questions may be asked in that group.

I won't answer any specific questions because this was Jorl's idea, however, if you get stuck, and need some advice, i'm happy to give it.


Edit:

Just a note... If you want to write an "adult" story.. PM those to me, or email them to [email protected] I will give out a prize for the adult stories.

It is more than acceptable to me if you wish to dictate some policy shelley. Anyways, as I stated in the post, you can either post them in a separate topic in the group, or PM me a link so that I may download the script and add it to a database.

aw, i wanna do this! i love writing, but i don't know if i can finish in a month. i'll have to really get inspired this time!


I don't see how time could be an issue. o.o The limit is around an ill-defined 20 pages, and I've put out 15 in one night before. If you do about ~2/3 a night you should be alright.

5. *IMPORTANT!* It's common for contests to insert a key to prevent story stealing. For this contest, I will ask that you insert two references to chemistry history, chemical reaction, or just the word chemistry. Highlight this please in your submission. And yes, using them in metaphors is perfectly cool. Think things like, "The air in here was cold enough to freeze water". Things like that.


please explain this. DOes it mean we need to write a story which will include 'Chemistry history' 'chemical reaction' 'chemistry' in a sentence?


No, I mean you can use metaphors, likenings, just the words themselves, and anything from those subjects. That gives you enormous flexibility

Damn, i'll totally be in... if i didnt suck that much at writing in english... And even tho i could translate my texts, i doubt the results will be the same.

Anyway, here is 3 question:

-Can it be "broken" in short stories?

For example, 30 short stories of 1 page? or 15 shorts story, one every 2 days?
Of course they would have to be all sent in ONE PM because keeping everything organised would be a living hell if it wasnt that way~

-Can someone apply with more than 1 story? or its one story by person?

I was use to write a impressive amount of stories and little texts before. I was wondering if someone who wanted t submit 2 of their story could do it... Its all a question of organisation.

-Is the stories gonna be "published" on CR ?

As much as i love to write, i hate to see someone taking my texts and making them their whitout giving me credits. I was use to post them in forums and such alot, then i realised they was spreading arround and i was very sad to see that i wasnt credited, so i stopped.
I just wanted to know if all the contestant stories will be published on CR.
Some may like it, its always fun to have people reading what you wrote ~

PS: I admit i smiled on rule 13... *sigh* im hopeless
PS2: Kazuma, it was kinda mean ~ Its a fun project. pppfffttt =P


For the sake of Judge's time, it's going to have to be 1 story a person. However, your 1 text can contain as many stories in it as you please, as long as it's within the word limits or close (For the sake of said judge's time).

As far as publishing goes, I'd like you to have your stories on public display within the group. If you win, it could be submitted to the Onigiri with your permission. In this contest though, you control full copyright. If people are sufficiently scared of having their short-story stolen, I'll have it moved to just judge's eyes only. People generally aren't interested in stealing shorts though.

Can we turned in scripts we've made?

The idea is that you'll start now with fresh material, but it's not like i'll know. It'll just need the requirements to be met.

What are you looking for in judging?
In Judges?
I would be more than willing to judge. I am only an AP student but I go to one of the best schools in the nation so I don't think it is too much of a disadvantage. Of course you would probably have to know the person for them to be a judge I suppose. Anyone can give out random fake credentials ^^
Hmm, it isn't really important I just thought it would be interesting and it is fun to see many different writing styles.

Sounds interesting. I'll see if I can do it. My problem's that I procrastinate too much.

And a question: Can normal users also be judges? With all the stories that I believe may come up, three judges might be too little. Anyways, you are looking for more, anyways. And if they can, I want to be one.

I WANT some normal users for judges. But I don't know these people, and I have to make sure they're not biased. Why normal users?
A: so everyone is involved.
B: Everyone is represented.

I've got several people who've asked. I'm going to make sure at least one of them is picked, and I'll talk to the other judges tonight and see what they think.

So... Since the rules don't say anything about it having to be in English, I'll write an amazing story (I'm goot at writing - trust me) in Dutch. After all, I don't speak english well enough to write a story in it.

Yes! After extreme discrimination because I couldn't show off my awesome Halloween costume (because I had none, because it's an US only thing), I can finally compete in a contest.

Yay yay. End of total sarcasm.


wow wow wow ... dont go over board.
Yes there is a specification that it have to be in english. Why? because its the language that we all share and last time i cheked, CR was a english language based website. And the judges all speak "at least" english. If we have judge in others language, we could see if there a possibility to have the texts judged, but then again it wouldnt be fair ... as a judge, how can you judge that this or that story is the best if you cant read them all and compare them all?

I think really, we should stick to english. Very much so.

If not, im willing to judge any french story that you could receive.

Oh and ussshhh you, you dont need to wait for HALLOWEEN to get a costume. It is allowed to get in costume everyday of the year. You could have get a costume just for the sake of it and pose in it. You just giving yoursefl excuses =P
