Right! Just four lines to show how good a writer you are. Four lines is the mimimum you can post in S&L, so seeing as this appears rarely I though I'd make a comp of it. I'll be making a max syllable count so lines can't just go on and on aswell.

I'll finlaise the rules once the sign-up is done, 3 groups of four in the 1st round, so I'm looking for 12 competitors. I'm aiming for a 10th October Deadline.

EDIT: Upped to 16
EDIT: 17. No more :P

Competitors:

1. #1 Synth (Dylan)*
2. Caz_Guitar_dude (Calum?) *
3. Parabetheo (Bryan)*
4. Circular. Parade (Mat)
5. DanteR* (Dylan)*
6. frd_Marshall
7. scousertommy (Ro)
8. Retribution (James)
9. Something_vague (Matt) *
10. I ARE 301 (Stephen) *
11. Fate of Mind (Max) *
12. irishmatt 1992 (Matt)*
13. Phoebus*
14. jman32892006 (Justin)*
15. JimmyPage=God (connor) *
16. Alk 3Addict (James)*
17. Mayday (Danny)*

Okay, I said 12 but I'm upping to 16, anyone after that it's a definite no.

Max syllable count was an Idea just to stop people rambling on for like, ever. (some idiots owuld attempt to try it).

I'll have a go. M'names Danny.

EDIT: Here's my entry, I hope I got in on time.

Colour erodes my dreams, clouds my mind
Successfully carpet-bombing my wildest desires
Leaving run-down ambitions, desolate trails of thought;
Whilst safeguarding my most cherished memories.

Obstacles so tall and wide do seem so volatile from this side
I approach, they turn into ghosts, the apparition is no more
I can stare up ahead and assess my fears, the ground is dead now
But don't cry here, the grass will grow, pretty soon it's all you willl know

Apologies to those who aren't in, tough luck, you missed it.

RULES:

I won't have a max syllable count, but please don't abuse that rule by trying to turn an 8 liner piece into a 4 liner piece.

Pieces can be as poetic or non-poetic as the writer wishes.

Any topic, any theme, makes no difference to me whatsoever.

DEADLINE DATE: 12th October That's almost a week, I'll try and set up the 4 first roud matches once I have the pieces.

REMEMEBER: From the Comp thread.

NEW RULE- If you do not submit your piece for the competition you signed up for by the due date, you will receive a deduction of 1pt. If you need an extra day due to reasons such as vacations or just being inable to get it in on time, you must notify the competition starter before the due date.


I don't really want to put back the date, please give me a valid reason, no bullsh*t that you didn't have enough time, 6 days is more than enough, methinks.

I think I've covered all the rules etc so- Get writing!

Jamie

Is that 16-syllable thing actually being enforced? 'Cause at least one of the pieces already posted hered doesn't adhere to it. So...like, what's the story about the syllable count rule?
Oh, ok, sorry, just read your edit of the big post. No max syllable count. So what constitutes "abuse" of the syllable count thing?

Oh and I'm Ro

Ha, like writing what would obviously be a stupid and ridiculous amount, something like the length of your post- to me, that is not one line. I'll pass judgement with each one. I won't be too picky though, just not stupid. anyhing that goes over two lines when posted would probably be what I'm on about- I don't see that as one line.
