INTRODUCTION:

Hey guys! It's me (TDOG422) here for a BIG announcement! I will be holding the unofficial (and probably against the rules for that matter) writing contest! A new contest will be held every...whenever I want (not too-too long apart)! And even though this clan is mainly about writing about dark times (and maybe a few jokes in there...wow I use way to many parentheses), you can write about anything (within the AG rules of course - and I did it again) you want! I feel like there isn't enough contests in AG, so I thought I would take the risk of making this one! All you need to do is make a short story and post it as a comment! And I will have a topic for each contest (man, what is that word!)

TIMES:

The time spans will be one month for entries, one month for judging (in case this gets popular), and the break in between the contests.

EXTRA STUFF:

•There will be one winner and the "Notable Entries"
•You may only send in one short story per contest (still think of that word!) If you send in more...well figure it out
• Yes, you can give me ideas for the topics
•I give full permission to all the admins and moderators to help out as much as you want (and be the judge if I can't)

RULES:

•Stay within the AG rules
•Don't be mean to the other writers (or anyone)
•Don't post someone else's short story
•Don't repost your short story we will read all the short stories and will take all of them into consideration
•Have fun (DUH!)

As you can hopefully see, I hope to make this a big thing on AG and I really want it to work out because I have/want to put so much work into this!

The first contest (someone help me with that word!) will be announced on the 1st of December, so this has enough time to gain some popularity (JK I'll never get popular) and so I can keep track of the dates easily.

I'm somewhat confused.
So, I get the idea of it, but why didn't you ask a mod/admin if you could open this thread instead of hoping that they don't lock it or delete it.

the first contest  will be announced on the 1st of December,

Anyhow, 2 weeks of a thread opened with no contest?
That's not really going to generate popularity.

one month for judging

A month for judging? That's a bit...slow.

Ok...I will

Well it was mainly just for the easy time.

If think it shouldn't be that long, ask.

What do you mean by 'ask?'

Oh, also, you should probably add a word count minimum/maximum to the thread otherwise people might go too short or too long.

I have an idea in mind for a story but... what is the max limit for each story?

Considering it's a month we have to do it, I'd say 3000 words would be minimum?
But if it's a short story, iunno..

I don't know if I'd like my stories to be critiqued by someone who can't even spell their themes right.
