Yes this contest is to simply write something I deem creative.

Rules:
No more than 20 pages when copy and pasted into Microsoft Word with 10 point Times New Roman.
Be creative.
Must make sense.

Prizes:
1st 10K Credits.
2nd 2K Credits.


Middie's Example:

You know, when I met the Countess, I expected nothing less than a ruthless bloody killer. Evil as evil can be. But when the seasons change, she'll transform from her heart of ice into the butterfly I know her to be. The last time someone saw her alive, they walked into the dance of eternity. Her name you ask? I have not the answer. I'm about to hop into a car and go for that ride, who thinks I'll emerge alive?
She smiles at me, with blood trained eyes, a fire burning to that yearning. I’ll always remember the first time you came to me, my Countess. A life so complex that a mortal mind couldn’t handle it. The most complex evening of my life, and I have you, my Countess. An immortal has never wanted to live mortally so badly. A mortal has never wanted to die so badly. I do enjoy this painful pleasure.
A car ride later, I remember that the seasons, are not the display of her personality. She is her own. Countess, why have you shown me a side you show no one else? Why must I be the only special one? In one light you exist, in another life you exist, this is the nature of humanity. I’m ready to accept you, as you are, who you will be. You shall always be, my Countess.
Will they buy into the words written in this letter? I wrote it for you in my own blood. I find meaning in these written blood letters. You trust all the words I wrote, and hold them near to the frozen heart. All from this, paper cut. As the ink smears, I’ll write it again, all for you Countess.

Bear in mind my example isn't finished.
Good luck. Have fun, and good luck.

Dude it's 20 pages hahaha. Plus man it's not really all that short if I'm gonna spend more than an hour reading it. If you go over it's not like I'm not gonna accept it. I'll just be a lot harsher.

I don't see why I would write that much for 10K credits. I suggest raising the credit prize if you really want people to participate. Most of us can get that much easily for free..

Depends on the type of writing you do nilla. I mean there could be a story you write that you engulf your mind into and not realize just how much you have written Razz

The credit prize doesn't seem plausible to me especially when we're unsure about how FFR is.

Also, what the fuck--I come back and see krunky with 38 posts. xD

It's the whole "Keep it short" Idea. The whole page rule was my idea of longest case scenario, was really looking for maybe 1 or two pages. Note how long mine isn't. Didn't say it had to be a master piece guys. Lulz.

You also don't have to format it like my example is could literally be

Word
word
word
word
word.

I wouldn't care.

You could format it like this (Not even a full page):

I can’t write you a love song,
I can’t always be there to stand with you,
Or hug and hold you.

I can write you a poem,
Hopefully it will suffice.
I love you darling and you know it.

I want to sit here and compose a song,
One with meaning!
One full of what you mean to me.

Like the day in the garden,
The night we starred at the stars,
Or maybe the night I wrecked your car?

I can’t write you a love song,
I can write you a poem
A poem just for you.
I can’t write you a love song.

I love you darling and you know it.
Does this suffice?

I'm not a literature or even a writer by far. Sorry mate, there's a reason I'm getting low B's in English (it includes writing, analyzing lit., ACT/SAT prep, and everything else). I absolutely suck at writing. I have to have my Grammar Nazi gf to fix mine up to get at least a C. I hate English >.< Why is it the hardest language to learn?

Ok. Here's a poem I wrote about two years ago when my ex and I broke up. It was published after I acted in a theater performance of Romeo and Juliet.

For the times you've cried yourself to sleep
For the times you cut your wounds too deep
For the times you wish you'd just die
One Bullet|One Gun|One love

For the times he said, 'I love you'
For the times you said, 'I love you too'
For the times you lost all hope
One Hand|One Gun|One Trigger

My parents say it can never be
This true love they cannot see
Our two hearts have combined
He will forever and always be mine

My body aches and pains
To feel his warm touch again
My eyes brim with sorrow
For me there shall be no tomorrow

I put the pistol to my chest
Of this life, this love was the best
The cold metal pierces my flesh
As I take my one last breath

Now as I lay here crying
My body crumpled and dying
I sputter the words, 'I still love you'
Never were spoken words more true

As he walks up to my body
Tears stream down his face, 'I'm sorry'
on his cheek a single tear does linger
He kisses my lips.. And pulls the trigger

"Never was there a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet.. And her Romeo."
