[2010: MAR-APR] Writing Challenge


Recommended Posts

Good Evening all,

Congratulations again to our last rounds winner, Lt. Jg. Jesse Lawn...who will be joining the judging for this round, and has come up with the following:

“To Seek Out New Life…”

In this month’s writing challenge, create a first contact experience with a new unknown species. This may result in a wonderful cultural exchange, or a brutal ship-to-ship space battle. Feel free to choose a Federation first contact scenario, or that of an unrelated people. Be sure and give details about this new encounter!

Guidelines: To participate, create a new thread. The subject of the thread must be the title of your story. If it is a Work In Progress, denote that with the heart post icon. If your work is complete, use the horizontal arrow post icon. Items not marked with an icon or marked with the WiP icon will not be considered for judging and will be moved to the "Character Cafe" forum at the end of the contest. Your work must be entirely your own. No co-authoring. You are welcome to create any character you so desire, but they must be from the Star Trek universe. No "canon" characters allowed. (i.e.- No one who has been on a show.)

Want to participate, but can't start a new topic? Why didn't you view the "Read Me First!" forum? You'll need to ask a moderator or Senior Member to create a thread for you!

Length: No more than 3000 words accepted.

Beginning Date: Monday, March 8th

Ending Date: Friday, April 9th.

Wow! Where is everyone? I came to start reading all the entries, and found only one. Don't tell me that no one can think of something to write about on “To Seek Out New Life…”

I's got ideas, just not time to work on 'em... Hopefully, however, I will manage to make this a touch bigger than a one horse race :)

One week left my good friends! I can't wait to read your entries!

Um... I'm a bit concerned. There doesn't seem to be an arrow icon anymore that I can use in posting my new topic. So like... How do I indicate that it's an entry?

Oh found it. It is under "Post options"

It was an excellent round this time through, as we had 3 of the 4 entries within a single point of each other. We had to call out to the Captain's council to help us get the tiebreaker...

But..with no further ado...

Congratulations to Lt. Kevin Breeman with Excision, and our runner up, And New Civilisations - by Mailea Labria.

Lt. Breeman will be joining the writing challenge judges again, as well as helping us choose the next topic.

Great job everyone!

The next round will start sometime next week..as I'm going to be moving..and thus no internet til then..:)

This is just an inquiry since I know people have had RL things that required their attention. How are the critiques coming?
