@Sokolniki the word count changed. I believe it is now 250, 450 and 750.
I'd love to play This looks like fun
and over the Kyp-ness
Jedi_Lover is correct, after the first round of this game, the word limit was raised. I will make that more clear when I have sign-ups for the next round.
When will that be, you ask? Well, Jedi_Lover deserves time to enjoy her colors so I will put up the sign-ups in a week.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask or suggest any changes you would like to see.
Do we get to know who the judges are?
Time for sign-ups for the next round of Edited. For those who are new to this game, it is played in 3 rounds.
Round 1 - 24 hours to write around 250 words
Round 2 - 48 hours to write around 450 words
Round 3 - 72 hours to write around 750 words
If you wish to participate as a writer, please sign up:
We also need 3 judges. Please PM me if you are available and interested in being a judge. It's fun and you get to read some great writing.
1. Nyota's Heart
Tarsier, the judges identities are kept confidential because I do not want anyone, be they a writing participant or friend, asking the judges not to edit them or asking for details on why they were edited..
This is a friendly writing competition and I want to keep it that way. That being said, if the judges wish to have their identity revealed after the game is played, we can do that as well. But I will leave that up to the judges.
Sign me up as well.
Yes yes, the same "will make it to the second round even if it kills me" rule is still in effect.
Think I may give this a go.
I'll try again. Sign me up!
All the writing slots are filled
There are 2 openings for judges. Please PM me if you are interested.
@KELIA - how's it coming on the judges front?
got all excited that there was an alert on this only to find that Nyota was responding :'(
Oh well, I'm quite looking forward to this... though I am fearing to a degree the idea that my use of original characters may put me at a disadvantage.
But where's the fun without challenge?
IMHO, OCs are da bomb. Canon characters are a crutch.
Judges are set and the game will begin tomorrow, Monday. Hope everyone is ready!
I'm going to be offline on Monday, though perhaps not all day, because the carpet installers are coming in to finish recarpeting the condo I live in. So hopefully I won't miss anything...
I think you should have some of Tuesday to get it done, depending on when the requirements get posted up today.
Round 1 Requirements
A domesticated animal (pet)
An alarm going off
A spilled beverage
All entries are due by 5:15PM Eastern time tomorrow, Tuesday April 8.
Got my entry up now.
I may be stretching the definition of "Domesticated" by using a stray abandoned apex predator, but I'm certain you will find it in your hearts to forgive me

Here's my entry:
Since I won't have much writing time tomorrow, here's mine: Double-Cross: Aftermath
Mine is up.
