But, just like to say that I loved the contest idea--and hope to participate in something similar at some later point.

And who knows? I might pull out a few thousand words of fiction+non-fiction with no characters yet with a non-native speaker (who must not be a character) involved in the twist. Hmm hmm.

I've got some nasty dice that I haven't even started to deal with yet, and school sort of begins on Monday...so we'll see. It seems unlikely. :( I have another project due the day before that is eligible for some nice cash prizes, and I've actually made progress on that one, so what little extra time I have with the start of school might go there instead...

On the bright side, I wrote lots that I'm decently happy with in the past month for a major revision project :D

Why so? It just happens, sometimes. I feel like I gave up on mine, too, and I haven't even started it. But there can be a lot of reasons why!

Actually I don't have a valid reason. I was going to say the word count. The problem with that, is that I'm planning a novel and the plan is already 2000 words or more. So word count isn't a valid reason, I'm thinking if it was a small word count limit I'd be thinking that it is too short and want a bigger word count. Then I think I could just re-roll the dice but then I'd be giving up on something (I might just re-roll the dice). In other words I have no valid reason to give up on the contest, but I gave up on what I got... so I will re-roll.

:hmm: sadly, the contest rull forbid a second re-roll, you would have to try to do what you can with the dice you were given, that's the challenge of it (together with all the other crazy things, I guess. >.>)

If your dice don't give you too much of a reason to give up, you shouldn't. Unless they really don't inspire you, but even then, I think the only way to do this is examine your options and find the unusual twist that can tie all together. Either way, good luck with it, if you choose to still try... you could draft something and come in our chat on Sunday, maybe the other members will be able to help you come up with something!

I thought you were allowed a re-roll?

TheMaidenInBlack Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013
You're allowed to ask for more dice, like if you asked for 4 at the beginning you can have one more, or two; but not for a new set. :hmm: I'm sorry.

I saw it, thought it would be really awesome to take part in, forgot about it in the midst of finals, and proceeded to get involved in a ridiculous amount of other projects as soon as break started, leaving me no time for it anyway. OTL
