Default The Overlords Podcast Fanfiction Competition - March

The Overlords Podcast (with whom i just did an interview, look for it's inclusion in Episode 40 perhaps) is hosting a fanfiction competition over on their forums. Its a great chance for you to experience a competition before the annual Heresy-Online Fanfiction Competition coming in September here. I'll be running that. and to top it off, they're giving away a signed copy of Horus Rising to the winner!

The rules are simple:

Quote:
Complete the following in no more than a thousand words. Send your entries to [email protected]:

Sitting in a room that looked little more than a steel box he was shivering, visibly shivering, his teeth snapping together sounded like a drum in his head that accompanied the baseline of his heartbeat rumbling through his ears. It wasn't his flimsy clothing or even the cold steel of the room that caused such visible involuntary movements. No, it was the ice cold eyes. The eyes of the Inquisition. He knew he'd pushed his luck once too often and now he was heading for a whole lot of hurt.

"You look .............."

"I'm just a bit uncomfortable in this chair"

"discomfort?"

"I, I, I ....................."

"Uncomfortable is a stone in your boot or a crick in your neck after falling asleep in a chair, maybe a paper cut. I suspect you will soon want to re-access your definition."

EDIT: Closing date the end of March
and that's it. feel free to check it out here: http://theoverlordsforum.freeforums....sing-t636.html

Interesting. Most interesting. If only I did not suck so hard when it comes to writing.

I don't quite get it. Is it just 1000 words from just filling in the blanks or to finnish the entire scene?


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

those aren't blanks. those are just pauses. cut-off sentences. What you need to do is finish the scene in 1000 words.
