Main Archive and Rules thread:

http://343i.org/2a7

Welly Welly Well!

It's the moment that maybe some of you have kinda been wondering when it was gonna happen maybe...

Um.... for....

Anyway, to restate the rules:





Rules

  • Your story must pertain to the given topic. If it does not or in a round about way gets far off topic and never comes back on topic, it will be disqualified.
  • Each entry can be a maximum of 2,500 words. No more. We want you to take time to develop characters and build a plot, but at the same time we don't want to have to read for 3 days just to judge the months entries.
  • You are allowed to submit your short story at any point in the month, as long as it is before the last day of the month. Anything later will be disqualified.
  • Following ruling 3, if you see someone else's short story up before yours you cannot in anyway plagiarize a fellow members work.
  • No partial entries. If you submit a piece, it must be complete, beginning to end. if not, you can be assured it will not be judged.
  • No inappropriate stories or use of inappropriate language. Follow site rules as you write you story.
  • All text must be submitted using the default fonts, colours, and sizes and without special characters (bold, underline, italic, strikethrough and mathematical symbols are alright though) to ensure that submissions can be viewed by anyone who wants to and to keep the focus on the content of the work, rather than its presentation.
  • Place your entry in the member created works area of the forums.
  • Post in this thread leaving the name of your story along with a link to your submission. Do NOT include your entire story in the post, only the link.

The entries will be judged by:

Cooliest

BZ1

RSR

And your's truly

Judging will be based on Spelling, Grammar, Variety of language (or your Vocab, if you're "hip" like me) and Creativity.

Now, we will begin taking submissions on

SEPTEMBER 1st

No Earlier!

And will not take any past

SEPTEMBER 30th

NO LATER.


So, now that all the formal stuff is out of the way, here's our topics:


1> The story of a Rogue Spartan on Reach during the Battle of New Alexandria.


2> A facility attempting to develop a new kind of A.I., more advanced than Cortana.


3> A derelict UNSC Ship is being searched by an S and R team, but there's no sign of the crew.






So, that's all folks, pick ONE, Get writing, and good luck to you!

Rule nine revised.

Whelp, the allotted time has passed.

 

Considering the small turnout, we're rewarding both rrhuntington and Grif for their entries, as they were the only ones. They were both good entries guys.

 

Keep your eyes peeled for the next one.

Would have loved this event, but my writing is swept under a rug whenever I put it somewhere for people to read. =3= It is my opinion that the community dislikes having to read things and prefers visual stimulus. Which is some major *Blargh*.


If you think you are the best thing since sliced bread, DO NOT respond to this post~!
If someone tells you to "make me a sammich" the simple reason behind this is that they are horrible at making sandwiches themselves. Therefore, the laugh is on them for not being able to make a simple sandwich.

Don't tell me the odds, and I won't make you stick your foot in your mouth by breaking them.

Beneath the blood red moon the flames of the pack may be seen. The pack's howl heralds complete destruction. We are the Burning Wolves.

Talk of the wolf and his tail appears. (As quoted in Henry G. Bohn, A polyglot of foreign proverbs, (1857))

We read and review every submission, so if you want people to look at your work, this is a good way to.
