Yes, about that...

True that. The word limit and reader expectations made this one extremely challenging. I even had to only submit the first half of my story because it was too much to fit into 5000 words. Of course, I figured it wouldn't matter because I was the only entry... (dammit Crixus... )

We'll see how Dysole likes my entry, it's hard to say. Honestly I'm willing to take the hit if it means getting the contest back on.

~Dysole, leaving it pretty open ended
It's been there for a while now, so if you're interested feel free to join and take your time writing an entry. Just keep in mind that your story can't exceed 5036 words.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

I don't know what happened to Crixus33. I was all set to get this resolved on Wednesday, but he appears to have dropped off the face of the earth. Ah well. Less competition.

Do you think Crixus33 just said he was working on something just to screw with us? He's probably off somewhere sipping wine and laughing at our expense.
Spoiler Alert!


Seriously though, we're a few weeks past the six-month anniversary of this particular Prompt. Although I'd hate to call it and then have Crixus33 show up with a story, I must admit that if we don't hear from him soon we should probably forfeit his entry-to-be. Maybe I'm just being impatient. Idunno, thoughts?

~TAF, who may try to write a non-Contest story in the near future. Stay tuned, maybe.

I'm good with moving on. My decision certainly isn't swayed by the fact that I have an 'entry' or anything.

Really though, I'll make a rule for this. If the individual extending things isn't heard from in any way for a week, we proceed.

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

Rules Update (and revisions)

Quote:
The automatic due date is one month after the prompt is issued. (For example, if a prompt is issued on the 20, the due date becomes the 20 of the next month.)
Reason:
Spoiler Alert!

If there are no entries by the due date, the judge will wait until there is at least one, and then judge. That entry will win by default.
Reason:
Spoiler Alert!

Any writer can request an extension, but they may only do so:
  • Twice.
  • Because they are working on an entry, or plan to in the near future.
  • If they have (and present) an alternate due date, no more than two weeks over the current due date.
  • Because they are speaking for someone who is incapable of requesting an extension. This counts as an extension for the person being spoken for, not the person doing the speaking (for the purposes of the first bullet).
Spoiler Alert!

The judge reserves the right to deny extensions, at his own peril discretion.
Spoiler Alert!

If the individual who requested an extension is not heard from in any way for a week, his request will be ignored. If the time limit is up, the contest will proceed without him.
Spoiler Alert!

Re: Fan Fic Contest: Are you the best writer?

That works. I believe Crixus' last post about finishing his story was at the end of last month, so I'm thinking that if there's still nothing at the beginning of September we should go ahead with the judging. If he shows up at the last second maybe Dysole will add him in or something if his story is a real winner compared to ours, Idunno.

I also don't know about the new guy, he expressed interest once but never said he was working on something or if he was interested in the prompt so I've no idea if we should wait for him either.

At any rate I made my story because I had an idea but mostly to get the contest moving again. That was well over a month ago, so...
