I Want You To Write Forgiveness

Hosted by [Kaimee], a flipside contest.


CLOSED: Judging at Forgiveness Contest Judging... Congrats all ;)

Forgiveness. Pardon, pity, mercy, absolution. I want you to write for me forgiveness, in any guise you wish.
Your entry should be less than 800 words and can be in either prose or poetry, entries will be judged on brilliance, alone. Brilliance will be judged by me, and spelling, grammar and creativity do of course impinge on the delivery of brilliance, so polish your work kiddos, and run it through a spell checker at least ;)

This idea came to me while writing my entry for [Burning Inside]'s War Diary contest. After finishing my entry it seemed to me that my piece was about forgiveness, and compassion. I'd like you guys to bring me as many and as varied entries as you can, my example of a War Diary being only one of the many forms forgiveness takes. Show me what you're made of guys ;)

Subject to change at any time without notice

1. The theme of your piece must center around or focus on forgiveness. This doesn't mean that you can just throw the word 'forgive' in there somewhere, I want themed pieces.

2. Original work only, plagiarism will be looked for.

3. Prose and/or poetry permitted.

4. Prose: Maximum of 800 words, minimum of 150 words. Poetry: maximum of 35 lines, minimum of 10 lines.

5. Maximum of two entries per member.

6. I am not easily offended. Pornographic or gratuitously violent scenes will get you disqualified.
Other than that, *shrugs* if you're old enough to write it then I'm old enough to read it.
I ask that any members with mature content post warnings on their pieces.
Anyone who enters the contest or reads other member's pieces has been warned; you may stumble across things you don't so much like.

7. If you squabble on or over the contest, I will get cranky :P

Entries will be judged by me, according to sheer brilliance :P Correct spelling and grammar will heighten your chances of your story appearing brilliant, although if you're a good enough writer they may not get in the way. *shrugs* Your choice on that, I just tend to enjoy correct spelling and grammar more.
I also tend to enjoy the creative, rather than the predictable, please; work on that. If you do not adhere to the word/line count limitations you will be disqualified. If you break the rules you will be disqualified. My say is final.

1st, 2nd and 3rd places will recieve badges, everyone will recieve a participant badge. Pending
1st place will recieve a review of their winning piece by me, with as much commenting and critiquing I see the need for :P

The other two winners are doing it for prestige alone! ;)
Of course, I may just be un-predictable and do whatever strikes my fancy at the time. Brace yourself for either no c&c or a flood of it, no warning as to who will recieve. 1st, 2nd, 3rd or general participants are all equally susceptible 
to crazy Kaimee o.o

2006-02-13 [Mister Saint]: *the Moorns all look up, bright eyes* 

2006-02-13 [kileaiya]: NoOoO! I can't get away from the tiny Moorns! *hides on top closet shelf*

2006-02-16 [Metal Tsubasa]: Now, you say it's based on forgivness... but can it be about not giving that forgivness?

2006-02-17 [Kaimee]: I want you to write about forgiveness, not "a story of someone being forgiven." Write what "forgiveness" is, really, in any mode. So yah. Go ahead :P

2006-02-17 [Fuzzysabeast]: *grabs a flyswatter*

2006-02-17 [Kaimee]: You need one of them in Australia at the moment, it's crazy with bugs o.o

2006-02-23 [Fuzzysabeast]: o.O. *calls the exterminator*

2006-03-12 [Kaimee]: Eeee, this contest has been made a Flipside featured contest! ^^ Sorry for my little absense, I've been... existing in an incredibly busy fashion, having just started a new uni and learning the joys of comuting 3 hours a day... ! Thanks to everyone for sticking around and such, you can look forwards to some actual judging by me soon enough :P

2006-03-18 [Burning Inside]: aww man that sux i would have loved to have joined this one, but i never got a chance, message me when you make your next contest ill be sure to join it

2006-03-19 [Kaimee]: It isn't over yet, it just will be soon! :P

2006-03-28 [Calann]: Um. *eeps* Or was this to be closed soonish? :S

2006-03-29 [Kaimee]: it is to be closed soonish, so hurry up and get your piece in if you're going to :P I'm closing it the second I have enough time, probably at the end of the week.

2006-03-29 [Calann]: Alright, I'll try my best, and if I don't get it done by the time when you come upon that second... Oh well. Is the end of the week synonymous to, say, Saturday or Sunday?

2006-03-29 [Kaimee]: something like that :P I'll message you the day I feel like closing it to tell you when, and you'll have until I go to bed that night before I post the results. ok? :P

2006-03-29 [Fuzzysabeast]: Cool!

2006-03-29 [Calann]: Fine by me. :P

2006-03-29 [Kaimee]: Actually, I may do that with all the contestants to give people to make a few final changes if they want to. But if I don't hear back by the time I go to bed... well, you're all stuck ;)

2006-03-30 [Po]: Heh, making changes would mean that I'd have to read it again. Nuh-uh. I'll just take what my muse has offered me and let it be. :D

2006-03-31 [Kaimee]: Me likes reading things over and over, I think you're cracked not to :P

2006-04-02 [Po]: Completely cracked. *noddles* But that's ok, at least I'm brilliant too. :D *giggles*

2006-04-20 [Kaimee]: I"m not going to message people, because I managed to take like a week and a half longer to close the contest than I had warned so I expect everyone to be ready by now. Judging and comments are done, see the page for details ;)
