This is a multi-peiced challenge contest that requires you to think outside the box and the vary your writing. For those of you who love challenges and experimenting: this is for you.
So what do you do?
Well, I'll tell you right now, you're probably going to start from scratch. not necessarily, but it's likely you will. My friends, you are writing five peices for this contest, and each peice is going to fit exactly into each of the descriptions I give you.
It should be fun! =]
So I'll list each type of writing you have to do, then you'll submit them (all at once preferably, but one at a time is okay too)
By the way, the 'topic' is what yopu base your peice around, or just mention at least once. be creative with it!
