Welcome to the year-long writing contest fun. Thatís right! Year-long.

Each month the twelve contestants will be given a Theme. Donít think itíll get boring if everyone writes about the same thing because while everyone will indeed be writing to the same Theme each contestant will receive a different Genre and Emotion.

Contestants will have twenty-one days of each month, starting on the first, to complete a short story of about six thousand words. Seems like a lot? Itís really not. If you spend fifteen of those twenty one days writing then you only have to write four hundred words a day. Cake.

The six other days can be spent on brainstorming, outlining, re-writing and editing. Whatever you do with your twenty-one days your entries must be submitted by 23:59 on the twenty first night. (Leniency will be given for time-zones.)

The Theme, Genre and Emotion arenít the only things to change each month. The Point Of View will change too. Get ready to practice first, third and, yes, even the dreaded second.

Contestants require two characters, one of each gender, and must send filled out forms in DMs so it can be verified if the characters are consistent. Must be characters that haven't been previously used.

How does the judging work? It is not required but a writer's criticism will be taken into account when Big Sister marks the entries.

Contestants will be marked on the following: Theme (5), Genre (5), Emotion (5), Characterization (20), Description (20), Grammar + Spelling (20), Point Of View (10), Tense Consistency (10), Interest (5).

Still thinking of participating? There are only twelve spots for contestants!

01. Andi

02.

03. Naomi

04. Tink

05. Sore

06. Shannon

07. Peggie

08. Antonia

09. Erin

10. Izzy

11. Tiffany

12.

By the end of the year the contestant with the highest amount of points wins!

Remember: once you enter you are committed for one whole year.

Have fun, writers! Good luck. x

NOTE: The two characters you create never meet. You can only use one of your characters six times. Choose wisely.

Does it matter which character charts we use and send to you? Like, is there a specific one you want us all to use? (I tend to do really extensive character charts, such as: http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&global=1&q=by%3Afyuvix+character#/d27na92 , and the long version mentioned in the author's comments, so...)

Well, if you want to write a story of when they were younger you could totally make the character have a flashback like in those movies. (:

I have another question! ... man I seem to have a lot of questions!

Anyways do we have to put a certain age down? The only reason I ask is what if we want to do a story of when they were little or older?

Thanks
