So quick (potentially stupid) question. I just want clarification for no confusion later >.>

So including my OOC note for the piece word count is over 3000, but it seems to send in PM messages just fine. So question is, that won't be disqualifying because the OOC message isn't apart of the actual contest story piece right?

Definitely not a stupid questions and I THINK I get what you're asking. If I don't, please explain further. :lol:

Let me try…

Anything that is posted in OOC, any notes in your pieces, will not be counted towards the word count. The story itself is the only part where I will be checking word count.


ON ANOTHER NOTE:
Though these aren't papers for school, if you DO use any quotes or anything that SOMEONE ELSE HAS WRITTEN, please do a small work cited down at the bottom. I doubt this will come up, but just incase. I'd love to know where you got the quote from and read further to better understand the usage of it!


I hope that made sense and cleared it up! Let me know if not!

You answered my question perfectly! I didn't think the notes would be counted but I just wanted to make sure so that I could add as much into the contest piece (pending to post up shortly! Woo >> lol) as I could.

You're awesome Aimee, thanks for all you do!! :D

Ugggg....My laptop has been dead for a week and I can't access anything I've worked on thus far to even try complete something. I'm on a borrowed one until mine gets up and running and I can't even figure out the keyboard properly on it. Hopefully we will have another one

So, I know it says any POV, that means can we have like... a written out memory from the past, like a backstory? Does this make sense? >.>

It does make sense! And yes! As long as the content that's being submitted was written sometime between April 2015 and now! The character must be found on grid, the content must be written by you, but other than that, go wild! You could even write a memory ABOUT your grid character from another character's POV, so long as the subject is the grid character you have entered!

Hope that helped! Feel free to ask more questions here, PM or yahoo. ( marlo.pace )

HAPPY WRITING AND GOOD LUCK! :writing:

as a reminder…
