The Twister - a contest with crazty twists and turns!

This contest–the Twister–is one of a kind. As the name implies, there are a lot of twists and turns in this contest. This contest consists of 7 total rounds and 3 groups… and three “twists”. I know there are a lot of contests like this right now, but I assure you, I am not trying to copy anyone’s contest.

The Rounds
The Rounds in the Contest are… very interesting. I made a table for you to see… (I couldn't poat a table on WB so this is what appeared)

Contestant Number: Lots (preferably 20/21)
Genre: Any Genre and Form of Writing

Contestant Number: Probably 18
Genre: Fantasy

ROUND 3 (Twist 1)
Contestant Number: I can’t tell you…
Genre: Twist: You Don’t Know Anything

Contestant Number: Probably 12
Genre: Horror

ROUND 5 (Twist 2)
Contestant Number: Probably 8
Genre: Twist: Survivor Style (Genre: Mystery)

Contestant Number: 5 or 6 Contestants
Genre: Romance

FACE-OFF [Round 7] (Twist 3)
Contestant Number: 3 Contestants Left
Genre: Twist: Judged on Your Journey (Secret)

The Twists
As I showed in the table, in the first twist, you don’t know ANYTHING about that round. Okay, that’s a lie, you’ll know some things … but very little.

In the second twist, we’re going Survivor style (does anyone watch the show?). If you watch the show, you MIGHT know what that means… think when a “tribe” is decimated… what happens then? If you don’t watch Survivor, then… well, EXPECT THE WORST!! MUAHAHAHAHA!

For the third twist, I called it “Judged on Your Journey.” This seriously is true… in two ways! I literally judge you on your journey, and your writing piece has something to do with your journey. That is all I’m saying about this special final round.

The Rules
This contest really is special. I’m not giving you a list of rules… Or am I? Yes, I am, but no, I’m not. I WILL give you a list of rules, but the rules are different for each round, so there is no set list of rules.

Basically, you just need to have fun and WRITE! :D

The groups do not have much impact on the contest. At first, at least. You will be eliminated within your group. Anything anyone in another group writes doesn't have any effect on you, since they are not in your group. If they were in your group, then, well, that would be a different story.

Although there are separate groups, you will all be writing the same genre.

Round 1 – Entering, Rules, and Guidelines
For Round 1, I am making the contest pretty free. There will be hardly any rules.

Okay, for the first round, it can be anything. Almost anything, I mean. (I’m actually stuck on creating rules)

You CAN enter a poem, a song, a rant, a diary entry, a true story, a fictional story, etc… But try to make it inspirational. That is your “prompt” for Round 1.

For the Rules part, I DID make a list for you:

•NO COPYING OR CHEATING – punishable by contest removal
•Round 1’s entry cannot be anything you have already posted – punishable by disadvantage
•Must be at least 50 words for a short story, 10 lines for a poem (or 4 stanzas), and songs must be at least 5 paragraphs
•Your Round 1 entry MUST be in to me by 11:59 P.M. March 30, 2013 I probably will be changing the deadline- don't pay attention to this yet
•Entry forms are due March 23, 2013 Please ignore this, too.

The Entry Form
Yes, there is an entry form for the contest. Please fill it out to enter the competition.

Okay… I think that’s about it. (If you cannot edit your comment to insert your entry, then post your login username and your link to your entry in a different comment. Thanks!)

I’ll be glad to answer any questions you have, so just ask and I’ll answer!
