well, you should be. it says 'first thread in S&L' though that is really a new rule just added this past newbie comp, i don't think we thought about that. i'll ask a mod and let you know. you really would have been in without any trouble if you hadn't mentioned that. i would have only looked at threads started by you and not individual posts

Ganoosh, sorry man. stuff like that always happens. shit, i think it happened to me once. you did get in the last one right? i dont really consider you a newbie, btw. you post regurarly, probably more than me these days

rest of y'all are in.
to the guy asking what prose is:

Prose is the ordinary form of written language. The word "prose" is derived from the Latin prosa, which literally translates to "straightforward". Prose is adopted for the discussion of facts and topical reading, as it is often articulated in free form writing style. Thus, it may be used for books, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, broadcast media, films, letters, history, philosophy, biography, and many other forms of communication.

due date will be set once we get six or so people in. you guys can start sending in your piece now however.

Yeah, I've been in the last two. I guess I've had my fill of newbie comps anyway, I won the first one and came second in the other one and they're the only reason I even have any points right now. :P

and no multiple pieces, just one. though if you send your entry and then decide you'd rather use another piece, you can send it to me as long as it is before the due date.

DUE DATE: A WEEK FROM NOW.

I'm in!

Ok, by writing a lyrics does it include a song melodies to it? I have videos on my original music posted up on Youtube. Am I allowed to use that?

If yes, here's one of it;
