PostSubject: The Zombie Fiction Contest   Mon Jul 25, 2011 12:33 pm

First topic message reminder :

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

Phillip, Memos,
I have read your stories now. I'm not gonna comment on literary style or anything, but I enjoyed them both. They seemed to be long term survival rather than constant combat like COD. Fish, you can count me as interested enough to see chapter 2 like you said (though Sawyer takes priority). Comparing them, kind of reversed in that Dan is becoming more alone while Jacob is working on finding people. They were both good in that they started out in the middle with some mystery still for the character and some questions from the reader, though I wish more background info could be given. Maybe that would be in the next chapter's flashbacks.
As for my story, I've been finished but it's not written down, and now that I've passed up my opportunity in summer I have no idea when the story will be translated into words. But I'm sure the longer I wait the fuzzier my memory will become.
Heh, guess I didn't need to wait until Halloween to read these, they're appropriate for anytime

To anyone who still reads theses forums, I just wanted to let you know I'm actually submitting an edited/shortened version of my zombie story to a school produced magazine at my college. If on the off chance it actually gets published and I'm not just deluding myself, I'll post the new version here. Honorable mentions go to Euphy for pointing out awkward wording and not saying anything negative when I sent it to him for proofreading. Turns out he's some kind of professional editor or something. Sent me a copy of a forged document and everything. *whistles*

That's cool. As for me, I applied the concept I had for the undead story (which I never wrote) to a different storyline I had conceptualized a while ago, and am making it into a series of short stories that I might be able to form a crossover novel of some philosophical sort with. It's along story (and, well, the stories themselves are long as well)

...I thought that by now I'd be able to type sentences in a less retarded way than my 10th-11th grade self, but I guess not.
