I am confused.
May be you can correct me? Make things clear to me what you want. So I may be can enter your poetry contest?
I think it's a great idea -thanks.

What I am confused about;-
In the required rules of the poetry 'guess who 'contest, you say describe an unknown character-

If they are unknown how can others guess who they are?

Do you mean anonymously?
Example I write about a character that is well known, with out mentioning they name?
Is this what you want?
Blessings, keep up the great work. I have a character in mind, will wait to hear from you with calarification.(It's the 14/7/2013-in Australia.P.S. I think I can guess Km2 character already by they clues. LOL.

Oh, yes sorry! An anonymous character is much better phrasing. Unknown to the audience until they read your poem! :)

I typed out a guess who to Km2 entry, it didn't appear-as it had LOAD MORE at the end of the comments.Can't leave any comments on work when this displayed.!!! (I am very angry. to say the least.)

(which really annoyes me booksie, as you are an international website- with international writers you should know the different time slots -shouldn't you?By now!)
To Km2.
No my guess was wrong because I read the title of your work Km2. w
When I re-read it knew I was wrong.
My origional guess was Super-Man.
I dont know the song you are writing about-of this dark evil tragic event-may all who passed RIP.
Till later,
(Sorry to put this writing here but I had no choice and thought you should know Km2, as I couldn't leave a message on your profile page either????!!!!)

I tried several times posting this message on your profile page but failed-?! Therefore I post it here now.
The poetry contest that you are inviting people to-(& I also sent invitations to my fans)which I have entered.
(No one seems to have guessed the character right so far that I have written about-(the movie title is just to help them along.)
As it's the 19/7/2013/Friday/Here is Australia-1.02pm noon. I suppose you will judge the contest tomorrow,(we are ahead a day of the USA).
