i really doubt many songs go over the 5000 character limit. I mean, not even "it's alright, Ma (i'm only bleeding)" by bob dylan goes over that and it lasts about 8 minutes and its 20 verses long. are you sure yours goes over the limit? sometimes when PMing, the system says it goes over the limit for some reason. even if it doesn't. if you have trouble PMing your piece, i can give you my e-mail adress and you can send it there.

I'm in...when's the last date?


i'll set a due date once enough people join. im guessing it will be atleast a week from now, so you have quite some time to write something.
you can also send a piece in right now if you already have one

and what about the language? PG 16?

lol, im not sure what exactly PG 16 is, but you can use profanity if thats what you meant. Though as a general rule, your piece must not be considered offensive - that means no sexism, racism, homophobia, insulting, etc.

i note the asterisk beside only one user's name... does that mean no one else's pieces are in, or is it just a specific note for that one person?
