Ladies and gentlemen, I have decided to initiate a new writing contest. One was created by Lee a while ago, and it sort of got forgotten about. Plus a lot of those members are now closed or inactive accounts. But I think it was a good idea. So I'm starting it back up.

I'm going to let you guys know how this works right off the bat. You will sign up for a genre, and you will write a short story for that genre. It should be at least 1,000 words, and just try not to make it too long. I don't like putting a definite cap, because I know you have to develop in order to make the story good, but be considerate of your judges.

I will have a judge sign up list toward the end of the contest to make sure we get users who are still active to judge. I will be appointing three per category, and if a judge feels they're able to commit to judging more than one category they may do so.

The deadline for your story will be December 12 (it's a Saturday). In order to keep everyone reminded and interested I will personally be hosting a weekly discussion concerning questions about the genre and the authors can discuss their personal opinions on those questions (it's still DDO, right?).

If you have read all of the above and think you will be able to follow through with this, I would love it if you signed up below. I was originally planning on entering the story I wrote for this, but I'll just be the host for now. So all five spots per genre will be open, and sign ups begin now:

Sci-fi/fantasy:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Crime/Mystery:

1.

2.

3.

5.

Action/Adventure:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Romance:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.
The Troll Queen.

I'm also the Troll Goddess of Reason. Sacrifices are appreciated but not necessary.

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

I was in Action for Lee's iifc. IDK. But, if we can do two, like two stories by way of two categories, I'll do something like romance. Otherwise, here's my story, mate.

Because of NaNoWriMo, I can't edit atm.

Sorry I forgot I switched the order. I just put you in the top one cuz you were in the top on the other one :P I'll take that submission though. If you want though you can take another category. Just reply to this and add yourself to romance.

I don't have a problem for that. You can submit for both since there isn't a large number of people signing up :P I haven't read your story and wasn't part of the leading team in the last contest. I just saw an opportunity to improve and redo it because of the previous crash, so I took it.

I'm not sure about the deadline (I procrastinate alot) but sign me up for action\adventure.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:
Nerd 1: "Why can't you trust atoms?"
Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

Hi Jonbonbon,
I'd love to take part in this; specifically the Crime and Mystery section but, like ClashnBoom, I procrastinate a lot and I may not be able to finish it by the deadline... Hope you'll accept me!

It's at times like these, when I actually look around the site and see other forums, games, and debates, that one can only assume that I am thoroughly bored. - Vaarka

Anyway, this reminds me of my 2013-2014 days of trying to write stories (which were complete crap). Of course now I've improved a bit, and while I don't actively write, I enjoy writing some random story from time to time. All I remember is I'm not the best at adapting already existing characters, like from a show or movie. I can do it for people I am close to, not fictional characters...

Although I do remember making a story not too long ago, with my final trademark showing me unconsciously picking leaves off a tree or bush and slowly tearing them apart in my hand (yes, I do this all the time and I don't know why) while quietly watching something from a distance (and no it wasn't a girl).

Oh well, none of my good stories (that still exist) would fit the bill of "not being too long", mainly because I hate being limited to a certain length...that and this is like 2 weeks old and I just noticed it (notice my quote above), so I'd have like 9 days to write something completely new. Have fun you well-literated sprite cans.
