ATTENTION EVERYONE: I HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE CONTEST FOR LATER USE. ALL OF YOUR SUBMITTED STORIES WILL STILL COUNT IN THE FUTURE WHEN THE CONTEST IS REVIVED. I AM LITTLE BUSY WITH COLLEGE AND OTHER PERSONAL MATTERS AT THE MOMENT. ANOTHER REASON WHY I HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE CONTEST IS BECAUSE WHATEVER SPARE TIME I WILL HAVE LEFT IN THE FUTURE, THIS CONTEST WILL (FOR THE MOST PART) TAKE AWAY CRUCIAL TIME THAT I COULD BE SPENDING TO WRITE MY NOVEL AND A FEW OTHER THINGS AS WELL. I'M SORRY FOR THE DELAY AND I ASSURE YOU THAT THE CONTEST WILL DEFINITELY HAPPEN SOME TIME IN THE NEAR FUTURE, JUST NOT RIGHT NOW.

 

ABOUT:

I have decided to begin work on a new collaborative novel. No specific plot ideas or concepts have been made yet (we will save that part for later) but once our team is fully assembled, we will all come up with an idea that we can all agree upon. But first, before doing anything, we must assemble the team. The team will be composed of 7 writers from Booksie (including myself). We must find the best writers who have the determination and creativity to properly assist the rest of the team in writing a good story. And what better way to do that than having a little competition right here on the site where the most creative writers go unnoticed everyday?

 

THE CONTEST:

You must write a 1000-1500 word short story. It must be within the word count range in order to properly qualify for the contest. You CANNOT submit a story that you've already written. You can only submit one story so give it your best shot.  Post it here on the site and tell me the name of it in the comments below. 

Here is a list to give you a better idea of the things that I will be looking at the most in your story:

  • Grammatical accuracy
  • Creativity
  • Character development
  • Dialog usage (if any)
  • Plot twists (if any)
  • Ability to use details without being overly-descriptive
  • Ability to properly set the scene and atmosphere

KEEP IT PG-13 (NO STRONG LANGUAGE OR SEXUAL CONTENT). PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ANY ROMANCE STORIES, EROTICA STORIES, OR ANYTHING OF ANTI-RELIGIOUS MATERIAL.

 

THE LIST: (this part of the contest will not take place until ????????)

Now here comes the fun part. Below is the list of the members of the writing team so far. As I mentioned in the description, submission for the contest will end on ?????? and the contest itself will end on ??????. During this 10-day period, I will be reading the stories that I have not read already. In the meantime, you can check back here to see if your story has granted you a spot on the team of writers. The list will constantly be updated so check back here every now and then to see the changes that have taken place. This is how it works:

  • If your name is on the list but is not in bold, it means I've taken an interest in you (no homo) as a writer and potential member, but am still unsure if your place on the list will hold up against other future writing.
  • If your name is on the list and is in bold, it means that you have a 50% chance of being apart of the team.
  • If your name is in bold and has the word "confirmed" next to it in parentheses, it means that your spot on the list is confirmed and cannot be bumped off by anyone else.

? A while ago before making this contest I contacted Ian Dawn and he agreed to join the team. So his spot is already guaranteed. That leaves 5 more open spots. Good luck.
