Welcome everyone to the Small Writing Competition! Ready to write a story based on this year's prompt that will impress the two judges and the rest of PC? Great!
But first, a few rules to keep in mind.
1.) Follow PC's rules and Fanfiction and Writing's rules.
2.) The stories written for this competition must be completely new. In other words, they must not have been written before and not posted anywhere else until judging is over.
3.) You must PM your entries to all of the judges. (This is so if someone loses their PMs the others still have them and so forth). The judges in question are Bay and gimmepie. You also must post in this thread when you send your PMs so we can confirm you did send us an entry.
4.) One entry per member only, sorry.
5.) You have until 11:59pm EDT, July 27th July 30th to get your entry in.
6.) The story can be based on Pokemon or be original fiction. Note the judges may not all be familiar with any other fandoms.
7.) The entry can only be a completed one-shot as this is a small writing competition - no chaptered entries, please!
8.) Please don't publicly post your stories until the competition is over! Once the scores are posted and the competition is over, you may post your story in Fanfiction and Writing so that others may see it. Make sure to add [SWC] to your title if you do!
If you have any other questions, ask away!
Scoring and Prompt
Each entry can have a maximum score of 30, with the points broken down into three categories equaling 10 points in total like in previous years. The categories are:
Spelling and Grammar Characterization, Plot, and Description Relevance to Prompt
After the event, z-crystals and points will be awarded to the winners for their tribe. 1st place gets a Marshadium Z (500 pts), 2nd place gets a Fightinium Z (50 pts), and third places gets a Normalium Z (20 pts)!
The prompt is survival, so good luck with making use of that in your story!
I'm trying to focus enough to glue and connect the scenes I already have. The extreme cold and a winter bug rounding us down at the office are making things harder than they need to be. Hopefully I'm the only one here to deal with my country's silly idea of winter trolling.
Okay guys, you have about 24 hours left to turn in your entries to me and gimmepie! So far we haven't gotten any entries yet, so yeah if you guys plan to write for this prompt turn it in before the deadline!
Okay, so the deadline has passed, and we only have Venia's entry. Gimmepie and I have been talking, and we decided with the weekend coming up that we'll have you guys take advantage of that. That means NEW DEADLINE NOW IS JULY 30TH 11:59pm EDT.
Yes, three extra days so use that time wisely folks! To Venia, if you want you can make some changes/adjustments to your entry and re enter it to me and gimmpie.
Good luck, everyone! Hope to see at least a few entries then!
Anddddd time! Okay, submissions are closed and we only have two entries. What happens now is gimmepie and I will judge those two stories and also due to the low turnout there will be alternate scoring/prizes by the end of this. Will come back again with the results sometime tomorrow!
I think I still have artistic block. I had story and everything, but each time I tried to write it down, I kinda distracted myself with something else or straight up lost my motivation to write it down. Well, maybe next year...
