E-book creative writing Team challenge - know your Team membersWe've received 10 registrations for the e-book team challenge. Accordingly, five teams with two members each will compete to write the best e-book. In this thread, get to know the teams and the role of the captain as mentioned earlier.
The teams have been formed as per the order of the registrations. Accordingly, the first five are the Captains, and the next five are matched with them in the order they registered. The five teams are-
1. Neelam (Captain) and Sun
2. Umesh (Captain) and Dr Deepali Gangwar
3. Dr N.V. Srinivasa Rao (Captain) and Ryyu
4. Saji Ganesh (Captain) and Radha Muralidhar
5. Shampa Sadhya (Captain) and Dr Sanchita Ranjan
Here's what the Captains have to do-
(i) Select the theme from any one of these photos that were submitted in this thread (one photo of each member has been selected)- postbox, stencil, fountain pen, transistor, batik saree, TV set. What is shown in the photo that you have selected will be the theme of your e-book. That is, the story will center around that object (s). More than one team can select the same photo. The jury panel will judge the e-books in their individual capacity and not compare if more than one team selects the same photo.
(ii) Decide on the genre of the story- mystery, humour, horror, sci-fi, anything you wish.
(iii) You have to write the first chapter and decide who will write the other chapters. Each of you will be writing only two chapters as this will be a mini e-book (so the total will be four chapters). So you can write the first and last chapter or the first and second one or the first and third one, as per your choice.
In this thread itself, the Captains will mention the photo that they have selected and the genre. Choice of chapters as mentioned in (iii) above can be selected later when the story unfolds, and accordingly, you will mention the selection in your e-book thread. Each team will submit their stories in their individual threads in the competition entry category of the forum. This and other details, including rules about word limit, etc, and the cash prizes will be revealed in the main contest announcement thread.
