For reasons that take me away from Gaia much longer than I like (you know, school, workin' for the Man, those abhorrent things called "college admission essays" ) , I will no longer be in charge of this contest. Mahayr in Waiting has dedicated her time to the continuation of this contest. Worship her--she doesn't get worshipped nearly enough. Details and updates from her start on page 5. Thank you for your support (and remind me the next time I'm at the ACME Warehouse to pick up some bazookas to use against the real world smile )!
Throughout my many travels here and there across the wide expanse of the internet, I have often had the palate for a giggle. Of course, an ideally fast way to sate my craving would be to hop onto a website such as Fanfiction.net or Fictionpress and read a silly story. However, it is not often that I can find a well-written humor story. More often than not, I find myself laughing at the poorly-written sneeze of somebody who is blissfully unaware of the term "Mary-Sue," and I feel terrible about it.
So, what to do? Why, hold a writing contest, of course! That way, I can read several silly stories, have a giggle, and help people write better in the process! It's a win-win situation! Awesome. Read on, mister or madam, and please don't mind the chipmunks that gnaw at your toes. 3nodding
