Broken Chains: Blog Contest

10 emeralds 33 replies 627 views | started 09/29/2017 10:15 pm by CHorse

So currently I don't think this contest will get too big, so I'm not planning anything too big for it. I did make a fancy text banner thing up there! Just take a moment to stare at it; done? Ok, we can move on.


The Contest:


As a blogger, I try and break free from typical writing tropes and messages. I know it might not seem like it, especially considering how some of my previous works really suck, but I do try. And since I'm so egocentric and narcissistic, I've decided this to be the best kind of contest for me to hold. So what is it? The challenge/prompt is to give me a story that breaks the boundaries in one way or another. You don't even have to write; if you can figure out how to make a story without words, by all means give it a go! I'm looking for creativity, new ways to destroy boundaries most abide by. It could be a story that defies the typical morals given to us, or that defies the very page it is written on. Maybe you found out a way to write a story so that the reader has to figure out how to read the story. Be as creative as you can.

Rules N' Regulations (The Only Ones To Chain You)

Sorry, but there has to be SOME rules.

1: All submissions must abide by the PMC rules; kinda obvious one here.

2: Submission must be a blog; I might make leeway for maps, but I'm not going to accept skins. Seriously, why would you turn in a skin!?

3: There is no word limit or max or min; if you can write a story in 10 words somehow, then good for you. I will note that if you submit a 70 page book I'm not going to read it all. I would prefer it to be less than 20 pages worth; but if it's rly long, I'm not going to disqualify.

4: Please add an explanation paragraph somewhere of what you broke; it makes it easier to judge.

5: No plagiarism; so if someone gets an ideer and you steal it directly then I'mma disqualify you. If you take that idea and you are inspired by it, then that's different.

6: Do not give me anything you've already made.

7: No collaborations; sorry.

8: Submissions must be turned in by the 7th Of November, but if you are late by a few days I will accept it.

Prizes
I don't really have a lot to give; so sorry if the prizes are RLY crappy. I can always excuse myself with the whole 'it's not about winning, it's about having fun', but we all know we really want the prizes. If anyone has suggestions for prizes, feel free to tell me; I'm out of ideas. If turns out only 5 people participate, then I'm going to cut down on the places; so hopefully more than 5 participate.

1st Place:
-The 'happiness' that comes from knowing you won.
-A custom pixel art trophy with your name on it (Just to make sure no one copy n' pastes it on their profiles)
-Being placed on my profile page; which no one checks out so . . .
-150 Potatters (Which are currently useless. :L )


2nd Place:
-The 'happiness' that comes from . . .getting 2nd place? Well, atleast you aren't 3rd.
- A custom pixel art tropy with your name on it; altho you're just number 2
-100 potatters (Which are also as useless. Geez, I really need a better currency.)

3rd Place:
-The sadness that comes from knowing you could've done better.
-A custom pixel art trophy with your name on it . . . you're 3rd, so it won't be that good.
-50 Potatters of consolation.

The Rest Of You (A.k.a the losers; I mean participants, cuz that's less direct)
-Participation trophy; ya did a thing

Judging
We will be judging based on a few things:

Creativity:
The biggest aspect; how creative was your break?

Plot Of Events:
We take a look at how the story develops; primarily focusing on how engaging it was.

Grammar N' Stuffs:
The basics of any writing; if it is all images then it will not be up to scrutiny of this.

Graphics N' Visuals:
We take a look at how you used visuals to paint the scene or break the bounds.

Execution Of Moral/Break:
Finally, we take a look at how well executed the message or break was.

Depending on how many participate, I will determine the number of judges. So for right now, I've nothing else on them.


Good luck and I hope to see submissions!!

There was a pug. He was called the political pug. He thought people's political views sucked and many people didn't like that. He broke away from the norm by saying "The government is the same no matter who is in office" or "The government is causing global warming through HAARP (look it up, he said)".

It got to the point where someone threw a confederate statue wearing a clinton foundation shirt at him, and it knocked out the author, ending the story early.

For 1st place I guess you could write a blog that includes them. Or (preferred), ask them where their nemisis lives then challenge their nemisis to a swordfight. Make sure you win, though, or else it won't be too good of a prize.

Sounds like a good idea, you also should make one of the unicorns destroy a comment section and continuously call another female unicorn babe *cough cough*
