I have won CCC#8! All bow down and worship me...right get up, onto the next comp.
This next competition will run for 15 days (officially starts 12.01am 22/4/2013 Australian time and finishes 6/4/2013 at 11.59pm) there will be no extensions nor prisoners taken!
There are several conditions, hurdles and criteria involved in this competiton (nothing too hard)
* Your character has to be orange. Whether its an orange cape, orange hair, has a pet orangutan, drinks Tang, was bitten by a radioactive orange; there has to be an orange element to your creation...Orange NSW, Orange County, orange you glad I put this condition in :)
* Within your story you have to use these three words:
Perspicacity (The acuteness of perception, discernment, or understanding; intelligence manifested by being astute; the capacity to assess situations or circumstances shrewdly and to draw sound conclusions)
Tundra (A treeless area between the icecap and the tree line of Arctic regions, having a permanently frozen subsoil and supporting low-growing vegetation such as lichens, mosses, and stunted shrubs)
Quark (Any of a group of six elementary particles having electric charges of a magnitude one-third or two-thirds that of the electron, regarded as constituents of all hadrons, thought to be fundamental units of all baryons and mesons but unable to exist in isolation)
And finally your story is too be no more than 834 words...why? Because that is the time when I created this comp, and we are all slaves to time.
Recap: Orange, use the three words and 834 word limit. Other than that it's free reign! You have today to plot and contemplate and then tomorrow (22nd my time, 21st US time) we begin in earnest!
