TKC Holiday Writing Contest: "The Gift of..." Theme
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:26:17 PM »
Hi people! Santa Toph back to you again.  While the Secret Santa game is going on, we have more fun for you to try!  In this great holiday season, we all know selfless gift-giving is part of the celebration.  Me? I like getting gifts, but, meh, you guys have a different world than ours!

TKC is a tremendous gift to all of us to have as a community for friends and activities, and so our next activity is designed for all you writers out there:

THE TKC HOLIDAY WRITING CONTEST!



This is TKC's very first writing contest! We want you to write about gift giving.  I know I'll enjoy this one too, cuz Sokka promised me he'd read every story to me! So the more you people enter, the more time I get with Sokka, if you catch my drift! :D

Our gift to you for entering?  Yeah, we got 'em.  Awards will be given for everyone participating and the winner gets a special award.  A new idea? You bet!

TKC Holiday Writing Contest Theme: "The Gift Of..."
Summary: This contest is about ATLA or ALOK universe characters experiencing the joy of gift giving as recipients and/or givers.  Or maybe they are sad because they haven't received a gift or are unable to give one.
Rating: pick a rating (K, K+, or T per Fan Fiction.net rating criteria)
Word count: unlimited
Contest entry submission deadline: Midnight Saturday 29 December
Contest voting:  all day Saturday 29 December
Winner announced: Sunday 30 December

This gives everyone almost two weeks to create and write - so have a fun time participating. :)

Post your story submissions right here on this topic thread.  Share your reviews on the authors' work!  (No "bah humbug comments" - be constructive in your reviews please!).

Any questions on this contests? Leave a reply here, or contact Writing Trainer A6 directly on his Profile or a send a PM. I LOVE sticking other people with all the hard work!

I may enter this ... I am going through a horrific art block, so maybe writing should be in order for me. I kind of have an idea already.

I'll bite.

And I'll even feature you, Santa Toph, and your favorite little elf helper...or should say The Elf Helper...and by that I mean of course, The Duke :p.
The best posts I ever made were the ones I didn't make.
