It's time for CCC #68, and I'm thinking that we haven't done a good "here's your picture" in a long time. So I went to Inprnt, and the artist featured on that particular click was Lois van Baarle, aka loish, and "Smoulder" grabbed me right away. She has a website- loish.net- that gives permissions for blog use (and other stuff) here, so we are free-and-clear to reference her picture for this contest. You can also find her on DeviantArt and Society6. I'll send her a link to the contest and voting threads as they're posted, so she can see what we've come up with. (Edit: Sent)
For this contest, the premise is simple: the picture provided is the inspiration for your story. The rules are:
- You must create at least one original character in your story. I would assume that would be the girl in the picture, but I've been surprised before by what you folks come up with.
- Name your original character.
- No word limit.
- Submit your story to this thread by Sunday, December 17th @11:59pm US Eastern time (click the link if you're unsure). That's 2:59pm on the 18th for your Sydney, Australia peeps! :^D
- , and the winner gets to pick the next contest.
I'm really glad you guys and gals are here! Have fun, and see you in two weeks! :^D
