tripsis Posted October 20, 2013 Share Posted October 20, 2013 Time for a new release of the: >>>Tip.It Times!<<< Writing Contest The Tip.It Times is pleased to announce a finish-the-fictional contest! Discover the mysterious Shadow shrouding Gielinor. With only Varrock remaining and King Roald holed up in his palace, is there any hope left? It's up to you to read the story and finish the fictional. The contest will run for three weeks, and the winner will receive a custom forum title on Tip.It Forums and a bond redeemable for 14 days of free RuneScape membership! Your Task Read the fictional story called A Hundred Heavy Hearts Write the ending! The Prize 1. A custom forum title on the Tip.It Forum. 2. A RuneScape bond, redeemable for 28 days of free membership. A few tips to keep in mind:Keep consistency. Don't try to undo the story or introduce some cheat to 'solve' everything magically. That's no fun!Use good spelling/grammar. Even if your ideas are great, if your grammar and spelling are so poor that we are getting a massive headache after your third paragraph, it's unlikely your story will win. So do us all a favor and run it through a spell checker first :-).Take your time. Write something, maybe put it away for a bit and look it over again. You have plenty of time for the contest, and it can sometimes take some time for inspiration to come, so be patient!Submit your entries via PM to @Arceus. Entries are due by November 24th. WRITE FOR THE TIMES - SUBMIT A GUEST ARTICLE: Remember, YOU can write an article for the Tip.It Times! You can apply to write full time, or just submit a "one-off" guest article any time you want!

For more information, including details on how to apply full time, read this forum thread: http://forum.tip.it/topic/209138-how-to-write-for-the-tipit-times/ I'd like to remind people of the rules pertaining to Times threads: [hide=Read these rules before posting in this thread] Rampant flame wars have taken control of virtually every week's times discussion topics. The following guidelines must be followed when posting on this topic. Posts that ignore these guidelines will be removed. 1. You are invited and welcome to express like or dislike on articles and a particular author's writing style. It is not acceptable, however, to flame or personally insult an author. Posts that aren't anything but an attack will be removed from the topic. 2. Spelling and grammar errors can be reported to tripsis by PMing her and they will be fixed promptly. It is not necessary to post them on the discussion topic. 3. Off topic posts that do not discuss the content of that week's articles will be removed. This is not the place to discuss the direction of the times, how much you love or hate the times, etc. Off topic posts will be removed. By keeping within these guidelines, Times discussion topics will mean more for the Panel and Administration than just a place for flame wars. Flame wars do not provide any useful feedback to the Times, which is mainly what we're aiming for with these topics: feedback. This policy is effective as of now, November 17, 2010. Any posts prior to the creation of this policy may or may not be removed according to the new guidelines.[/hide] [hide=Submitting Crossword Puzzles]If you want to submit your own crossword puzzle, it's quite simple. Simply provide a word list (about 10-20 words) with their corresponding clues. Then, message @The Floating Pen with the word list and it will eventually be published in the Tip.it Times![/hide] When replying please make sure to clarify the article you are replying to! Thanks! If you spot any typos or mistakes in an article then please PM them to @tripsis. :) Enjoy the articles! - 99 fletching | 99 thieving | 99 construction | 99 herblore | 99 smithing | 99 woodcutting - - 99 runecrafting - 99 prayer - 125 combat - 95 farming - - Blog - DeviantART - Book Reviews & Blog Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
