I was sort of hoping for a more dystopian society theme for the science fiction one emo I'm pretty sure I've never read a post-apolcalyptic story/ novel/ whatever in my life but oh well! Time to get thinking of an interesting apocalypse that isn't a boring old nuclear holocaust!

edit: vague idea forming, I am excited!

By the way, will there be some sort of marking guidelines?

e.g. originality - scored out of 20, character development - scored out of 10, etc etc?

Dystopia blends very well with post-apocalyptic and sci-fi. Dystopias can form from an apocalypse, so it is possible to pull off both at once.

We're working out scoring guidelines now. I don't know about the other judges, but I tend to put a lot of focus on character, setting, and writing style.

Ysavvryl's right, dystopia's perfect for it. And we are working on the point system and I'll post it for reference when its finished.

Yeah, I was thinking about it after my post and thought it could still be set in a dystopian society smile still probably would have found it easier to write about a dystopian society where there wasn't a mere fraction of the human population alive, though! But like I said, I have a vague idea so hopefully this task will help me produce something that's good yet out of my comfort zone.

Okay, I'll keep checking back for it, then!
Aw, sci-fi. Well out of my comfort zone. This'll be fun! ^.^

By the way, is there a minimum/maximum length it has to be, or is it just anything goes as long as it fits the prompt?
Whoo! More and more people to fall for the trap join the contest! 3nodding

A little about you if you want: I'm seventeen, from Sydney, Australia. I've been writing since I can remember, and it's my life's dream to write a bestseller one day, just to know that I'm good enough. I tend to write fantasy/supernatural/romance, but I can write in other genres if I need to, mostly sci-fi. I think that's it... c:

Celebration!

We have now reached eleven contestants!

This is great news to me since I figured I would get maybe five and that would be it.

So I am excited.
