alright, here's the dealio.

You say in, and post links to three pieces you find represent your style best. You then chill until I get enough contestants and randomly assign everyone a person to mimic.
You then write a piece in the style of the person you are assigned to mimic.

After the first round, we re-draw names and you write again as someone else; this continues until we have a champion.
+4.+3,+2 comp (points wise).

I'll get my links up in a bit.


1) zC
2) kdownes
3) Cous Cous =>
4) Dæmönika
5) bassbeat77
6) punkforlife93
7) Laces Out Danny
8) thanksgiving
9) rush4life
10) snowblind911

I write a lot of things in a lot of ways...
Zack, if you would pick 3 of my pieces to submit I'll be in.
Because I don't know what exactly represents my way of writing the best...
If not, whatever.
Promises meant a lot back then.
#6
um... i wanna be in... how long would we get to write each piece? i'm in my most important term at school atm, so idk how much time i'd have. but it'd be interesting. if it's not a ridiculoustly short time-frame for each piece i'll play. i need a reason to write...

I'm in. I'll edit in my pieces in a minute.

My only thought is that this comp requires a lot of effort for only being a 3,2,1 comp. I'm not complaining though cause it'll be fun either way.

I'm in, just for poops and giggles I guess. It ought to be fun, if just trying to copy someone else's style since mine isn't that distinct yet.

Will edit in pieces later...

i believe they're most distinctively "me" in terms of writing style. i wish i could pick a pen and write something real again

(i just realized before i clicked post; i type, not write it sounded nice and natural too)

For the most part this is a completely different group than last time. That should keep things interesting.

just to clarify, how would we go about "mimicking" the other person? would it be to write as if the other person could've written it?

Sweet.

Well I'm off to try and find a style to Darcy's writing.

EDIT: ^We're trying to mimic them at least in style. If you want you can go further than that and mimic them in content as well. But yeah, it's supposed to appear as if they wrote it if possible.

Basically, what Steve said.

You'll submit a piece that you feel captures they're stylistic and tonal choices, and then you go in a poll with the piece you wrote as them versus the piece they wrote as you.

The winner of the bout moves to the next round.

So the piece you write, Danny, will be like


---title---
by: Snowblind911

*insert ******y piece that nate might have written here* (Hi Nate!)


and his will be like

by: Laces Out Danny

*modern thrash-core jumbo-jet metal lyrics, that make no damn sense at all*

alright. I get it.

Question for the voting in this, are we voting based on how accurately they captured the writer's style, or just how good the piece is?
#28
Oh I was so happy when I saw this. I spent my first four or five pieces on UG trying to rip-off Mike! This is gonna be fun.
