Okay fellow members/writers/readers and friends, this is the official thread for the New Writing Contest. I apologize for the multiple threads and the multiple fuck ups, but I started listening to how others said I should run this contest, and I lost my way trying to make them happy and, in the process, lost sight of why I started this contest. Yes, the idea was done before and it was a great idea, and I am sure how they ran things was fine, but we are new generation of writers and this is not their writing contest this is ours. The idea to have the stories come in anonymously was a great idea, but for this first time I want to see how we do with a neutral party. @AbdoAna has volunteered to be our neutral party he knows and understands that for this contest he can’t post a story nor can he cast a vote....you will need to pm him your stories please make sure you pm them with a title for your title is how your story will be identified once voting is over....not even I will know who’s story is who’s. The point is that we are the now not the then and for right now this is how its going to be ran. The next contest theme will be decided by the winner. That being said here are the guidelines and rules again and this time I will spell fairy tale right lol…thank you guys and girls for your patience in dealing with my crazy while I got this figured out. General Guidelines: - Official entries will be posted after date of submission - Proofreader is highly recommended Rules: - All entries should be submitted to @AbdoAna account via PM. - Only entries submitted privately will be accepted as official entries, and only those with titles, if your fail to have a title you will get one chance to give one and after that if you do not than you will be disqualified. - One entry per member, and an additional One entry for a collaboration, do not submit different stories using different account please and when you vote only one vote per person not account….be fair please. Theme: Fairy tale/fantasy Deadline: July 1, 2018 @ Midnight One last thing to those who have already posted….please edit your stories come up with and title and pm them to @AbdoAna. They were great stories and I would hate for you guys to lose on the fun because it took me a bit to get my ducks in a row. Also if you have questions or concerns post them here so that way others and I can address your concerns.
