okay, heres how its going to go down:

1. people sign up (at least 9 because I want to do at least three primary 1vs.1vs.1 comps)
2. I break you guys into three groups
3. i present an inspirational picture to each group (a different one for each group)
4. each individual writes a non-prose piece based off of the picture in your group and i'll give you about a week from when i give you a picture until they are due.
5. I'll post a thread pitting the pieces from people in the same group (same picture) against each other and i'll do that for each group

1. the winners from each group are then placed into the 'final round group'
2. this group will be given a new picture and will have 1 more week to submit a piece (again, non-prose). However, just because i'm an asshole and i can, these pieces can have NO similies, metaphors, or any punctuation
3. these pieces will be put against each other and the winner will put this in their sig and a specified amount of points:

and will also be named the UG intellectual of the year, a prestigious honor, i know.

Well, sign up! O, and i wont be participating to even the ground.

1. TimmyHendrix83
2. Ret
3. Furtherfan21
4. LucasGtrGod
5. Until_it_sleeps_
6. Gurgle!Argh!
7. Dejesus
8. DanteR*
9. Falloutboy
10. Pumpkins_Rule

Ask me any questions you have.

oops. i forgot to ask.

what does non-prose writing mean?

05-15-2006, 04:41 PM
Im going to assume that he means just regular song structure style as in not like paragraph form.

well, each group going against each other gets the same picture, people from different groups will get different pictures. The people who write on the same picture will be going against each other.
