Count on me entering Smile

I meant to last year, but I never got around to writing a story!


I'm back!

And here's my entry:

I plan to add an image to it if I can, but if the deadline passes first than I'm not taking any risks that could DQ me P

Enjoy! and good luck, everyone Smile

Will give a shot once I finish a story I'm writing for TGFB, but it will take some time still, so maybe won't be able to have anything else by December 3rd.

Seriously???? I've been saving a story idea since the spring for the comedy category and the person who gave me the idea and who it would be about..... is one of the judges!

DAMN IT!

Dreaming up a work and crafting it into words and paragraphs is a challenge for anybody. It's like being the scriptwriter, director, cinematographer, special effects artists, actors and soundtrack composer-- all in one person.

Telegram Sam,

I too plan to compete again this year.

An Observation:
First year was fun. Second year was wonderful surprise. Third year means you've created a venerable institution. Congratulations!

A Question:
It wouldn't surprise me if many of the contestants would like to support this venerable institution. Being stand up characters (as all Capsuleers are) is there, perhaps a method in place for anonymous contribution?

Really great to see vets from the first two years meeting up again for this one. I hope the word is getting out to new or first-time writers as well. CCP tweeted the contest for us yesterday, so hopefully that will get the word out.

Anonymous contributions from contestants would be excellent. (Or if not anonymous, that would be OK too. These icy-hearted judges aren't capable of showing favoritism anywayBlink). Anyone interested can just send me a mail and we'll set the transfer up with Chribba. He's kindly holding donation funds for us again this year.

Rather busy this year, but I will attempt to set aside some time to get something sorted. Big smile Hopefully will get something typed up again as last years was fun.

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

You need to post the story somewhere on the internet (EVE Fiction forum, pastebin, a free blog site, etc.) So readers, other writers, and the judges can read it. Then post the URL in contest website's forum page.

I can't remember off the top of m head, but are there rules against submitting multiple entries in a category, or against submitting into multiple categories?

You can submit multiple stories, in the same category or across categories. Each story will be judged independently of the others on its own merit, of course.
