Very good questions. I was afraid I had missed out on something.
No, no entry fee is listed. Quite honestly I think the idea of an entrance fee on a online contest for virtual items silly. To join is free.
When I address literal, I'm referring to typography. An understandable set up and grammar that makes sense. Of course there's always room for error. Everyone makes those. Especially me. No chat speak, basically, or whatever you kids call it these days. You may go nuts with metaphors and so on. It would be stripping down to the bone if we didn't have a little bit of those here and there. Would be a pure shame really.
I have no doubt a pink haired neko in lolita outfit is out place in this story, but so might a regular looking character that fits too well as a friend for one of the characters. More about dynamic in my opinion when it comes to this. They have to bring something to the story, not just suck up to the characters (unless it's important). "Everything happens for a reason" as they say.
Imagery is not ruled out, don't worry. But throwing sonnets isn't really bad either.
Hopefully, I haven't missed anything.
You have 'prices' listed rather than 'prizes.' Given that they are prominently displayed, and repeated, this leads me to think you did not actually know the correct spelling, or a gentle nudge such as that would most likely have prompted you to check. You may wish to correct that.
I have some reason to believe you mean literate - composed in the fashion of a learned or lettered person. Though I'm not certain, as you seem to expect custom letterpress in an electronic medium, which is rather beyond the usual requirements of a contest.
Instead of answering the question as posed, which would have amused me greatly, you have clarified what the elimination of a single letter from a line you have already corrected.
As much as I love London, this does not appear to be the contest for me. Thank you for your time.
I wanna do a Jack the ripper case as one of the many possible subjects happened to be an actor, and that fits very well here.
But I like using my own characters.
And with someone already named Addler and there was another person's name that caught my eye that reminded me of Sherlock. It would be FAR to simple, and like I said before I like my own characters. crying really wanna try this though but I can't use premade characters like this to well.
*bows* I might drop out of this. Even if it sounds super cool.
