Autumn SUPER Comp : Sign Ups!
elle est retrouvée!
quoi? the SUPER autumn comp—

it is time! : melancholic feelings about past loves are here, you drink to deal with teenage drama, write poems/short stories past midnight, reflect on things you've destroyed and others you didn't built, you realize your life could've been different if you had the determination, you think you are cursed, blah blah, throw in some shitty weather and menthol cigarettes and you get AUTUMN.

here's how this competition works:
since this is a SEASONAL comp, there is not set limit for possible competitors, anyone can write a piece and enter.
there are no rules regarding the format, length, style or presentation of the piece. the theme must be, however, AUTUMN. be it a song, a poem, an ode, a dadaist manifesto, a post modern canto, whatever, it has to be about this season (yes i think i say yes its true yes).
ummm, what else? you can enter something you have already posted in the forums. only original work allowed. only one entry per participant.

oh, yes! since this is a BIG competition,
first place wins five points
second place wins four points
and third place three points.

i think that is all.

send the pieces by the PM system to me.
anyquestions, suggestions, complains, whatever, go here.

say in if you want in. good luck, cats!

PEOPLE IN so far:

1) zanasscross
2) ganooshy

4) digupherbones
5) bassbeet77
6) rushmore
7) jiminizzle

10) ngd1313

i can't really tell as of yet, i'll set it once more people enter.
though, now that i think about it, it has to be this next week, or the first of november, shit, this is because i will be away the last week of october.
i don't know what you all think. i'll speak to dan about, maybe we can come up with something.

bassbeat77 10-16-2010 03:15 PM

Yeah it would be nice to get a few more entrants in this.

jiminizzle 10-16-2010 03:52 PM


DigUpHerBones 10-17-2010 07:31 AM

the first of november would be good for me because i'm going away for a week in a week and it should give me things to write about
in regardless

Winners get more points in major comps. Scoring is 5,3,2 (or 5,4,3 as Allen chose for this one) as opposed to 4,3,2 in the regular comps or 3,2,1 in the quicky comps. Seasonal comps are always considered major comps.

NGD1313 10-19-2010 05:05 AM

it is very likely that i will submit something for this.

cubs 10-20-2010 07:13 AM

yeah, due date is the first of november then!

this needs more people. come on, don't be shy, darlings ;)

jiminizzle 10-22-2010 01:24 AM

welll the thing i was writing for this turned out close to 4000 words sooo back to the drawing board i guess :haha

more signups anyone?

cubs 10-23-2010 02:27 AM

okay, guys, i'm leaving in a few minutes to the north/west part of france (not that that matters but whatever), so i probably won't have internet access for like a week.

IF ANYONE from now on wants to take part in this, just send me something before the 1st of NOVEMBER, you will be in automatically.

come on, peeps, get writing! good luck.
