    3500 word rule for stories......? Anyone want to team up with me? I may as well say it now, I am not 100% reliable like anyone else on the internet.

    I like to do stories, but I don't know if I could do 3500 without spacing it by 20's.

    Team name you say? We'll decide on one later :p.

    The word count rules are not making things easier. I said I'd go for verse but I doubt I will.

    Guys, question. how much can I bend the rules before I get disqualified? I mean, I know adult themes are prohibited but if they are only implied can that pass or will it end up in me getting kicked out?

    You are writing a story for a fantasy hero, why do you have to turn it into adult imagery? No, you have my word that you'll be disqualified for that.

    If the sexual themes are only mild, why would it be disallowed? :O

    While I can understand a love interest for your hero, what are we considering "mild" like... I don't think someone could get disqualified for saying, "And he laid the night with her, as they were to be wed in the morning."

    However, anything more descriptive I could see crossing a boundary, hopefully your hero doesn't revolve around his sex life, if so, you may want to rethink his origin story xD

    I'm not saying I want to turn it into something central, I was merely thinking of using it as a way to force character development and change the hero faster than he/she would normally. I could obviously just omit it, it just seemed like a nice way to say "Protagonist changes the way they look at the world around them because of X" instead of "Magical character development". Also, I write in an overall dark, gritty style. Safe to say love stories are not getting anywhere near my work unless they make sense. But please, don't take what I said the wrong way, I am not by any means trying to turn the story into a fan-sevicy fan fiction. I'm just thinking of a way to give a pampered young protagonist a wake up call and implied abuse was the first thing that came to mind. If that's an issue, I'll rework it, no need to get worked up over it. Please excuse me if I've offended anyone.

    So, I'm looking up for an artist :)

    However, if I don't find a suitable one (and by suitable I mean the one who has as much creativity as I do) then you can count on me Phar as a judge.
    I'm really lazy to link my old judgement of SSCs right now but I will if you need a base as my qualification for the task :)

    That's a pretty long short-story >.>

    I never really liked the concept of having a minimum requirement. I get the maximum,
    but if someone can write something extremely amazing without using so many as 3.500
    words, then I think that should suffice, obviously there could be a minimum of some
    odd 1000 or something to avoid bullshit, but 3.500? I don't approve.

    Anyway, looking for concept artist.

    Here's my credentials: http://blackrosesandpoetryofdeath.wordpress.com/

    Also, how are you going to fund the t-shirt
    thingie?

    Will you give a shirt to all the team members or will you only send 1 shirt?

    Oh man, stuff just got REAL. It's Keiji. : )

    Also, I didn't know much about writing or story-length to say anything, but hearing you raise issue with it gives me confidence in agreeing. Pharaoh, any thoughts?
