The Seventh TvTropes Writing Contest:

Seeking for Light
[up]
After that, four of them will be selected at a random drawing and those will be [our] thematic objects.

It[']s the same four objects for everyone, regardless of who suggested them in originally.

Both from Parable.

-Drumroll-

Tin Whistle!

A Tooth!

And it is on!

Question: do the items have to feature in the order they're listed, or can you have them in any order?

Do we have a pass-through person yet? I don't remember seeing one.

[up] No, I don't think that's been decided yet.

In the unlikely case that I convince a writer to offer their ebook as a prize, do you think that's acceptable?

 36 Leradny, Sat, 18th Aug '12 5:48:44 PM from Alameda, CA
No. Books are hard to pick as regular gifts, let alone gifts for people whose identity won't be revealed till well into the contest.

Very true. And speaking personally, the idea of introducing a "prize" into what's always been a fairly non-competitive contest makes me uncomfortable.

Any gift of good faith is always nice gesture. I don't think anyone here writes for a prize, just to grow and have fun.

@chihuha I don't see anything wrong with that.

If you guys think it's not a good idea, that's okay. It's just that I thought that some sort of prize would be a good incentive to encourage entries.

Speaking of prizes, didn't someone offered to buy the winner a TV Tropes T-shirt last contest?

I thibk it's a good idea, but I won't argue if you don't agree

@Nrj: The first several contests had TVT swag offered as prizes. It wasn't until later, when Parable took a break from hosting and other people picked up the slack, when prizes stopped being a thing.

@Chi: If you want to offer a prize, and have the money to spare, maybe a $10 Amazon giftcard or something? I know you can offer those just by knowing someone's Amazon e-mail address, no additional info required.

I might not make it to the deadline so just... er, leave me off the list.

No one even added me to the list when I posted here two weeks ago. It's not meant to be.

Hey, is it too late to join this contest? I'd like to enter if it isn't. grin

Seeking for Light
I wouldn't think it's too late. The submission deadline isn't until the 21st.

Okay Guy
I haven't even done anything yet.

I just sorta signed up kinda mindlessly.

I want to drop out.
