- First of all, the competition will last until July 28th, so you have almost an entire month to complete your entry and submit. So don't cry to me saying, "Oh I was away for 25 days and I only saw this blog today!" or "I've just been so busy with work and camp; I've had no time whatsoever!"
- Second of all, I bet you're anticipating a complex set of rules designated to confuse and confound. Never fear! I hate rules! For this one-shot competition there is only one rule. I repeat, one rule! An entry cannot exceed 1000 words in length. This rule will hopefully qualm your fears about writing a time-consuming one-shot, and it also helps me with grading: less work for me xD. If you didn't know, 1000 words is not a lot, so your skills will be tested to write something amazing with limited space. I know it seems too good to be true, but you are allowed to write about anything, anything at all. Unleash your imagination!
- Thirdly and lastly, you may submit your entry to me in any way you see fit. I prefer that you post in the comment section, but feel free to send it to me via message wall, IRC, or email. I will be posting a list of all entrants as they submit their pieces, so you'll know who you're up against.
