Okay guys there are two more days left till my Jack Frost short story contest deadline! Lots of people asked whether it will be terminated. It's not :)
Lots of people have already sent in their stuff!

DEADLINE: DEC 31st

If you haven't already sent it in, start doing it :)
If anyone is almost done their short story but thinks they won't be able to make it in on the date, send me a note and i might extend the contest a couple more days.

Remember guys, there will be prizes to the three winners.

Still want to enter last minute? Thats cool :D Start writing! A short story doesn't take too long to write.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Guidelines

What are you writing?: A short story about what YOU would do if you met Jack Frost and had one day together. AKA: How do you spend it?
More specifically?: Where would you guys go? What would you do? Remember, you only have 1 day together.
From what persepctive?:It should be written from FIRST or THIRD person.
How long?: About the length of the first chapter of The Night Meeting. Longer is okay.
What if it's not as long as that?: Do your best to make it about that length, but a bit shorter is all right Half of Night Meeting is alright with me!
Also, try to spread the sentences/paragraphs out a bit. Just like i'm writing here. A mass of writing without any breaks is a bit difficult for me to read because of an eye problem of mine :/

You will be judged on..
- Believability
-If Jack is in character. He's a prankster, and a teenager. Keep that in mind.
-Grammar. I wont be picky about spelling, but do nawt rite like dis. U feel meh?
-Setting. It's simple, set it up. I want to know where you and Jack are.
-Atmosphere. Describe what is around you, and where you are. I should be able to picture exactly what is going on in my mind.
-Creativity. Is is something we have all seen before, or is it something new and unique?

WINNERS AND PRIZES.

There will be 3 winners.
Each winner will recieve a miniature Jack Frost charm depicting his staff. It will be handmade by me out of clay, and painted according to the colours. It will come with a loop so you can attatch a chain to it if you'd like. It will be sent by mail in a small box.

TIMETABLE.
Contest begins on Monday December 17th, 2012
Contest ends on December 31st
Depending on how many submission i recieve, judging can take a few days. I'll keep you all posted via journal.
