Scratch That - Round 4 - CLOSED

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 9, 2013, 6:22 AM
Facebook l Google+ Group l Our Staff l Rules/F.A.Q.



You guys have until the 26th. Judging will take on the 27th (my Sunday).

Also if you guys are so "hatin'" of the Poetry type you can do either a limerick or an acrostic, but keep it mind if you do this you can't win, and if we have to chose between someone who did the right type and you, they aren't going to get "Scratched" you will.


:bulletred:If you have not participated in to Audition you can not particpate.
:bulletred:Only one submission.
:bulletred:Submission must be created ONLY for this contest. (You can not submit pre-written pieces.)
:bulletred:Submission can be edited and changed until the deadline.
:bulletred:Submissions for the contest must go into the "Scratch That" folder.
:bulletred:No collab. pieces.
:bulletred:No bribing judges.
:bulletred:No flaming/hating/complaining the contest/judges/other entries. (Seriously, everything is set in stone so there will be no changes to deadlines, rules, themes, poetry types, etc.)

Breaking any of these rules will cause you IMMEDIATE disqualification.

Theme and Poetry Type:

Jurrasic, Acrostic Limerick. See if you would have attended the judging you would have already found this out :icontrollfaceplz:

aww don't say it like hatin :( I don't like the form but I like reading them :aww: if someone has a HUGE problem with them... well it is up to them. I think tough challenges should come. Yes... I planned never to write a limerick :XD: but had to write one for this but no worries :)

Good luck to everyone in the contest! I am glad (whether I make it or not) that limericks won't come in tougher stages :)

Sadly didn't get something done in time.
Learning for and writing exams takes away all time and all creativity at the moment...
Well, I'll probably just take the upcoming rounds themes and write something anyways and just not post it into scratch that :aww: provided I find the time to do so...
:worship: Thanks for the challenge and the time invested anyways
Good luck to everyone who continues! :dance:

Well I'm not getting through, I'm pretty sure of that, but it was tons of fun while it lasted! I'm going to enter this again if another one is set up.

Also, the dots and dashes translates to M_OT_O__T_T_M_T in morse code O__o

And BTW, did anyone else think it said Acoustic Limerick at first? xP

Gotta be more confident ;) You stuck to the proper forms and theme so that already gives you a greater shot at advancing :D

It was at first but then they fixed the typo :giggle:

Thanks for the optimism! I was going to not enter at all but then I remembered what Neil Gaiman said; "You learn a lot more from a failure than something unfinished."

I've never heard of him but I have heard of the saying. I'm glad you entered and tried though since the saying rings true :D

Neil Gaiman? Oh, no one important, just been hailed as the King of Fantasy and won many literary prizes including the Hugo Award ;)

Its a contest and a choice to participate. Personally i like the idea of challenging myself, and trying to look at subjects with other outlooks on the situation. Rules are rules, and im sure that things will be worked out as they need to.
