The Zombie Fiction Contest!




That's right, we are going to have an old fashion see who can write the best zombie fiction in the guild contest. Of course this is simply for fun and the prize will be the bragging rights for having the better zombie story of everyone. (Unless someone wants to make ribbons for first, second and third Razz) Here is all you need to know to participate.

THE PROCESS!!

1. State that you intend to particpate in this contest and that you abide by the rules and regulations. (You don't have to say it, just be aware of the rules)

2. You will have 3-4 weeks to come up with your best zombie story, in any form you would like. You could write a play, movie, story. Any perspective from the zombie's view, the human, the earth, doesn't matter. Your writing style doesn't matter and it's all about how you would normally write a fiction piece.

3. Once finished, hold on to the piece and sumbit it during the to-be-confirmed deadline. During those span of days, post the story in a reply post. If in the case that it exceeds over the post limit (10K I think) you'll have to double post.

4. Once the deadline has passed for submitting, we'll open it up to voting. The way we determine this is by having each other vote for our competitors pieces. You are not allowed to vote for youself. Rank from 1 - 3 the pieces you liked. I will tally up the voting and will declare the victor in a week's time.

5. It costs nothing of you; except time and energy, but it's worth trying and having a little fun with this. So come join in.


RULES/REGULATIONS!!

1. Zombie tales include gore, so in the case of this contest alone, we will ignore the guild forum rules and allow the ability to write multiple scenes of gorey action. This includes description of pools of blood and such. But in the best interest of guests and others who are not sure of this contest, please always state that reader's disgression is advised.

2. Violence also violates our forum rules but we will allow you to write in violence which includes shooting at zombies, exploding zombies, driving them over, etc. etc.

3. Racism/Sexism is NOT allowed. You can be against zombies in the story and hate them as well as describing zombies by their race, but do not project any negative views on race, nor pretend to impersonate/stereotype them along with sexism.

4. Sexual Content is limited. You are not allowed to actually describe the scene or the actual deed but hint before and transition after the actual event. Words that descibe a male and female's body are allowed but are limited to only a few times, this isn't a romance novel (yes, yes, that goes for me too)

5. Cursing IS allowed. Although we don't encourage a whole story dedicated to cursing, staying in character is allowed. Curse words are accepted, but refer to rule 3 when considering what curse words to use.

6. Other details not included above need to be addressed to me before you forego them.

7. Entrees MUST be 2,000 words or more

8. Have fun, be creative and good luck.

DEADLINES!!

STORY DEADLINE DATE (SUBJECT TO CHANGE) - MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH - SUNDAY AUGUST 21

PARTICIPANTS!!

1. MicahelN
2. BigMac
3. Felipe
4. Euph
5. Choco
6. Memi

I will attempt to do one. Has I question a: are we allowed to call dibs on certain themes (like, "I call my story to be based in a pokemon world, no one else take this idea!")?
But be prepared to disqualify me because I may be going on a short sailing trip in August, but I could probably still meet the deadline.

Just like Space and Time, Spirit is nothing to me either. I don't have Emotion, Rationality, or Judgement. In fact I am unable to comprehend the concept of them, just as you are of whatever does make up me.

Well, the topic of zombies I would imagine would be the same in most stories, but the ideas are still different. Yet, I'm going to have to say that you don't have to call dibs on a theme. (Since it is a contest). And since you have a legit excuse, you could either post it early or give to me to post on the deadline, whatever works for you.

Don't be coughing in my post if you ain't planning on submitting a piece -.-

Anyways, the deadline still stands for those of you that did finish your pieces, please submit them now. I'll make a 2 additional day grace period to allow any late entries to slip by. I'll set up the poll in a week - I'll let you all know when voting begins.

I do suggest you extend it for a week or so to be fair to Memi. This contest will be boring if we only have two applicants (I'm assuming Mac hasn't actually started yet). I've started to make some progress again so I think I'll make the official deadline and I'm sure Peaches is already done with his. Razz

Edit: Heh heh... zombies - deadline... heh.

So in the end, I'm only gonna post the first chapter. :/ Chapter two is done and Chapter three is started, but stopping at chapter two irks me the wrong way. If enough people like the first chapter then I'll keep writing it. The Title is subject to change, but for now it's The Path to Pecos...

Chapter 1

Spoiler:

Lighting gunpowder on a little girls shoulder Surprised

Anyway, very I am Legend, with a hint of War of the Worlds. I found it hard at points to differentiate past and present. All this guy has is a baseball bat? But...This is set in America, surely with all the houses he visits he's bound to find swords, guns, chainsaws; need I say more? Razz

An interesting read nonetheless. Bring on chapter two!

Fix this though: "Lucas was breathed slowly"

He actually has lots of stuff in that pack of his. As for the baseball bat, it's one of the most reliable zombie counter measures you can use. :/ Swords can fail if you don't use them properly. Also, have you ever held a chainsaw? They're damn heavy. Not to mention the inevitable spray of infected zombie blood. The reason he's reluctant to use the gun is because he wants to maintain a low profile. Loud noises = lots of zombies.
