Welcome to the Ten Kisses Challenge at TTB
In the spirit of the month of February, Your Barmaids will be hosting the Ten Kisses Challenge here at TTB starting February 5th and ending February 15th.
Every day, there will be a post with a type of kiss and you will have 24 hours to submit an entry. After 24 hours, the assigned thread will be locked & the Barmaids will then assign you points. So make sure to keep track of the time limit as well as the time zones. Remember, I function in EST [GMT/UTC -5]
If you choose to participate, you can do so by writing a 100 word entry. If your entry is exactly 100 words [no more, no less] you will earn 2 points for your house. If you choose you write a longer drabble, which you can, you will only earn 1 points if it's between 101 - 250 words. Anything over 250 words will not receive points. If your entry is less than 100 words, you will only earn 1 point.
You may enter more than one drabble per prompt, but you will only receive credit for one entry.
I will use MS Word to verify word count. But I will also double check with these online word count tools, if necessary: Word Count Tool 1 & Word Count Tool 2
Keep in mind that the online word counters may count dashes and ellipsis. To save everyone grief, please try not to use too many dashes, ellipsis, etc. in your drabble entries. I will not count words by hand, either.
You can choose to string your entries together into a larger story/fic or do separate drabbles that aren't connected to each other in any way or shape.
However, that won't give you more points. Only the word count! Remember, you do not have to participate in ALL ten days - only the ones that strike your fancy.
Please post questions in here.
Waring note: This contest has been run before, please do NOT attempt to reuse your drabbles from the first time this was run. I will know as I do have access to the previous contest entries. You will be disqualified if you do.
Points will be posted in this thread.
Note: This post was composed by The Ebil One when she ran TTB. It has just been adjusted slightly to work for this challenge.
