Who doesn't love to write about summer fun? I mean there's so much you could write about! You could write about a summer camp, a beach party, a bonfire, a family vacation, and just about anything else that takes place in the summer. Heck you could even write about a summer rainstorm if you absolutely wanted to. The point here is to just write about having fun during the summer!

What's summer without a little art? It's such a wonderful way to express yourself! You can just sit back and draw a lovely scene of the ocean with the waves splashing back and forth with the sun just starting to set. Or you know you could draw a big sun with a smiley face as it chases down a creeper. Whatever floats your boat!

This contest however is all about drawing the WGoG crew members in a happy Summer Setting! You can draw a scene with all of the WGoG crew or you can just draw one person relaxing on the beach. This is all about art and how creative you can be!

Did you think the only way for you to get some cool items was through the contests? Think again! We've got a ton more items and gold for you to win just by playing some games! Let's take a look at what you can do to get some cool loot!

Poetry bump game


The Poetry bump game is a long time favorite of the Writers Guild of Gaia. It's where 1 person posts 5 words and the next person creates a poem using at least 3 of those 5 words. Once you create a poem using the previous 5 words you create a list of 5 new words for someone else to use! You don't have to be the best poet in the world, just have fun and be creative! Confused on how it works? Check out the WGoG Recruitment Thread to see an example of how the game works.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Anyone can use the first list of 5 words. Just make sure you create a new list that someone else can use!

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Keep track somewhere in your post of how many poetry bumps you've done! You can't win prizes if you don't keep count.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. You only need to use 3 of the 5 words! Don't stress!

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Keep your poems pg-13 please. And do the same with your word lists.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. The first person to the required amount of Poetry bumps gets the corresponding prize. PM me if you think you've won with the title "WGoG Summer Poetry Bump Game!" and link to your post. I'll check to see if you've really won.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Don't cheat. Cheating means saying you've bumped more times then you really have.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. You have to use a different list of 5 words for every Poetry bump.

Prizes:

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. The first 3 2 people to get 15 Poetry bumps gets a User Image Titan's Legacy
Winners: kimanhbff

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. The first 2 1 people to 25 Poetry bumps gets 500,000 gold! gaia_gaiagold each
Winners: kimanhbff

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. The first person to 35 Poetry bumps gets a User Image Melon Pan mood bubble
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. The first person to 50 Poetry bumps gets a User Image Vibrant Sunshine

The first word set is: Summer, Blast, Fun, Surprise, Ball

Random Number Generator Game!


This game is really easy to play. In fact you can play it while playing the Poetry Bump Game! You can play it while you're talking to other people!

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Set your Numbers 1 to 20,000. Seems like a lot, but there are quite a few prizes.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. If you get a corresponding number send me a PM with the title "WGoG Summer RNG Game!" and put a link to your winning post.

But wait! There's more!

The 'Describe It' Game!


Here's how the Describe It game works: Randomly I will post in the thread with a list of a few themes/items/words. The first 10 people to create a 1 to 5 paragraph description/short story using the list I posted will be placed in a drawing for a random prize (I will list the prizes). I'll make it obvious when I post the list so that everyone will know. I will also tell you which prize is currently up for grabs

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. When posting your description/short story you need to QUOTE ME. otherwise I will not know you are actually participating and you will not be placed in the drawing.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.Keep all spelling/grammar mistakes to a minimum. If the mistakes are excessive your description will be disqualified and you will not be entered in the drawing.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show. Keep your description PG-13. If you do not do so then your description will be disqualified and you will not be placed in the drawing.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.You can create a really short short story instead of a description if that's what you want to do. Just make sure it meets the 1 to 5 paragraph requirement.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.Your Short story/description has to have something to do with the list I will post. I WILL read what you post.
