And Now You Die... August 29, 2012 - December 31, 2012
Greetings my fellow writers. Good day to you. I have another challenge for you today and I'll jump right into it.
The Task: You have just died. You get to choose the when, where, and the why. The how though, is a bit trickier. You have had the good (mis)fortune of being attacked by a vampire. For whatever reason, you've been turned and it's been long enough since then that the police, and everyone you know and love, believes that you are truly dead.
What do you do? Where do you turn? How do you react to becoming one of the damned? Is it a blessing? Or a curse? What happens to "Fiction Vampire You"?
1.) It has to be either a story or a chapter in a book. A really well written poem or screenplay might also have a chance at placing.
2.) Submitted work must be about you, personally, becoming a vampire and dealing with whatever comes after.
3.) If I see anything directly related to the Twilight Saga, it will be quickly staked, dragged out into the sunlight, dismembered in a wood chipper, and summarily burned. Thank you for your cooperation.
3.) Please check your SPAG, I would hate to get daggers in my eyes while reading.
4.) Don't molest the shift key. She is underage.
5.) I don't expect to see this happen, but if you harass either myself or another contestant for any reason, you will be disqualified and reported to moderators. The demand for civility is higher than ever these days, even as the supply continues to reach new lows.
Though not a rule, please browse the Recent Submissions window and give your fellow contestants much sought after reviews. We all want to know what our peers think of our work, otherwise none of us would be here.
I would like to extend my thanks to all who choose to enter this contest and wish each of you good luck.
