Writing Contest! [extended]

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 30, 2013, 7:22 PM

Skin by pjuk


Hello! I have recently come up with an idea to host a contest! :D
This contest will mainly be open to my watchers since I have no interest in publicizing it.



Deadline: June 1st
Original deadline was bad in timing, many people were to busy with finals!



Prizes:
    :bulletyellow:1st Place:
The winner will have their story made into a manga (with colored pages). I will work with the winner and we will plan out everything on their accord until the release of the final project.

    :bulletblue:2nd Place:
2nd place winner will receive a small 4-5 page intro/prologue into their story (with colored pages). We will also work and plan out how they want their intro. +Book Cover Illustration

    :bulletpurple:3rd Place:
3rd place winner will receive a Book Cover Illustration for their story!

    :bulletgreen:Participants:
Will receive a Llama badge from me (I rarely give them out anyway)


Rules:
    1. You cannot submit another writer's story.
    2. Must be your own  original writing.
    3. No novel length stories please. :icondizzyplz: only short stories are aloud.
    4. One submission per person (make it count! :D)
    5. You're allowed to use a previous written story of yours
    6. Nothing extremely sexual or gory



Judging:
Judging will be based on the following:
    :bulletpurple: Story line/plot :bulletblue: Characters

   I am not a very picky reader, any genre will work as long as the story is good. In addition, I am not your english teacher :XD: so grammer spelling won't affect much. Even so,  it may increase your chances in winning because I don't like reading unedited stories with a bunch of errors. :iconlazycryplz:
All in all, if the story is interesting and unique and characters pull me in, I will more than likely fall in love with your entry:heart: :iconchocoloveplz:
***
I avoid throwing specifics because I'm afraid they may affect how you come about your story. I'd prefer you to have fun rather than live off of things I say k? :hug: Have fun with your entry~!


Submission form [must be used]:
    User Name: Link To Story: Other Info:


Time Line:
:bulletred: Submissions Open
:bulletorange: Judging
:bulletyellow: Winners Announced
:bulletgreen: Winners notified and I ask them questions about how they want their story to come about
:bulletblue: Story board sketches given each page for corrections/reassurance that I don't screw something up
:bulletpurple: Finalizing/line arting and writer and me go through the pages and look to see if any changes are necessary
:bulletred: Color pages and show them to writer
:bulletorange: Accomplishment of it all! I'll live stream the drawing of the front cover of the manga, and after that is finished the final product is released!


There will be a lot of work on my part being put into this, so writers should be patient :iconcraiplz:


Feel Free to ask any questions! :iconrubcheeksplz:

here you go lol. It's very short o-O. I wasn't sure if there was a certain length you wanted, just that you wanted short story. I blame this on my reading project ;) seeing as I have to blueprint my STDY 80 class to get more "in-depth" on the concept and theme of it. lol but its fun and fine because I understand what study is about lol.

Anyways thanks for the opportunity :) I've been struggling with writing so this was good practice!

This is awesome! Thanks so much for doing this! How long can the short story be at most? I have two entries I'd like to submit-- one's 1200 words, and one's 4200, so if you have a preference on the length, this would help me decide :) Also, is it okay to email it to you directly?
Reply
:icongalaxyabyss:
GalaxyAbyss Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2013   General Artist
Either, and just put it up on dA writer stash and note me it! :D

Also, how gory is too much gory? One of my stories has the character's face a little bloody, but it's not terrible.

Other Info: Hope it doesn't matter if it's on another site, but if so I can post it here on deviant I suppose. Also if I happen to win I'd prefer to be noted as Kayla Marie (that's generally the writing name I go by on whatnot) but it doesn't particularly matter
