Celebrations - Christmas-New Year e-book contestIt's time to celebrate the forthcoming festive season of Christmas as well as the excitement to welcome a whole new year. So there's no better theme than Celebrations for our special year-end e-book contest! If you wish to participate in this contest, then you must first register here.
What you have to do: Submit a chapter in a response to this thread in the order of the chapter number assigned to you. You will be given two elements to include in your chapter. The chapter should be submitted within 24hrs. of the elements being conveyed, these being intimated in a response to this thread itself.
1. The e-book will be a story for children (approx. age 7 to 11 years) so you could keep the text simple. It should be in English only with no slang or inappropriate words and nothing related to violence, weapons and the like. You may include dialogues and new characters, but do not create confusion by changing the names of existing characters.
2. Minimum words: 250. Maximum words: 500.
3. Every chapter should have a title of not more than four words maximum.
4. You are welcome to edit your chapter to correct spelling, grammar and typo and can do so only before the next chapter is submitted. At no time should you change the title name or the core of the text.
1. Members can submit a chapter only after registration and a chapter being assigned to them. Do not submit a chapter out of turn. It is advisable to write your chapter in such a way that there is continuity in the story, with the next author being able to pick up the story on the contest theme of Celebrations.
2. In case the previous chapter has not been submitted by the author within the 24-hour timeframe, then the next author in line should submit the chapter.
3. Please follow instructions given in this thread and check daily both, this thread and the registration thread.
4. In case of any confusion, please post queries in the registration thread only and not in this thread.
5. Please do not discuss any aspect of the story and authours' submissions during the course of the contest. A separate thread will be initiated to give your feedback later, once the contest closes.
This time we will not give any top prizes but will reward the best chapters (up to five maximum) with Rs.100/- each. A consolation prize may also be given of Rs.75. Non-winning participants may also be given enhanced points and cc based on the quality of their submissions.
