Writing Contest
Posted On 02/06/2009 10:43:55 by steve

Hiya 'Hedds,

I hope everyone is doing well and staying sufficently clear of trouble. Or dead in it, whichever your preference.

I've been laying awake at night and my little brain has been running away with me, and at about 3 in the morning -- right about the time the dogs start trying to sneak into bed -- I got to thinking about new stuff for the site.  Aside from mods and enhancements I got to thinking about something to get peeps involved and have some fun.  

The Thing: So my wide-awake-at-3am-hair-brain came up with a writing contest. "But why a writing contest?" you aks. Because here: I like writing. And writing is good for you.  And because writing is pretty much most of what we do here anyway -- so nobody's gonna blow a groin muscle stretching their skills.

The Topic: The subject should be -- of course -- redheads, and I think an interesting -- a provocative even -- topic is "what the world would be like if it were ruled by redheads." So let's make it that.

The prize:  Ah the prize.  What would a contest be without a prize?  Don't answer that! It's a rhetorical question!  Aw what the heck, I'm going to go ahead and answer it anyway.  A contest without a prize is what we tell our kids life is all the while they're growing up: "do it b/c you'll feel good about yourself."  Bullshit.  This one has a prize. Here it is: The top 3 entries will each get a free 2-year VIP membership, complete with all VIP privileges, as well as 3 count 'em 4 (just kidding, only 3) redhedd t-shirts (one for you, 2 for your admirers and/or redheaded friends.

The guidelines: Entries should be no less than 300 words.  Keep it PG-13 or cleaner. Has to be unique.  You can enter as many times as you like. Submit your entry as a message to me, with the words "contest entry" in the subject line. The contest ends February 13, the day before you know what.

The Winners:   Will be chosen by we the peeps.  All entries will be listed on a poll page on February 14th, and everyone will have the chance to vote for their top 3.  The 3 entries that get the most votes win (obviously).

Good luck!

this is my type of thing stevie, i have written a few forums on your beuatiful website and some to get redheads to be creative but it has not worked much unfortunately it would be great to see if redheads can be intelligent and creative enough to write something so i will have something up by the next day.

"what the world would be like if it were ruled by redheads." = The Ginger episode from southpark

Darling, I am going to pass....ackshully - I will think about
it.....What the world would be like if Eunice Crankyponts ruled the
world.....I am sorry - if redheads ruled the world....



Seems simple enough but stinks that I have a writer's block thing going on - this may challenge me to get creative.......thanks for the challenge Steve.....I am not going to say yes or no because this will be an anonymous thing... :)

can i enter that.?

tbh, it would be quite close to the same now if the world was ruled by redheads. the only difference between us and anyone else is that on a general basis, we hate the sun.

FANTASTIC IDEA STEVE.....can't wait.......gonna go flex my fingers...!!!!

02/06/2009 15:00:22
This is a fantastic idea....The topic isn't really anything I've ever though much about...honestly..guess I'm just not a very good megalomaniac but it is Intriguing..I'll throw my hat in the ring, see what I can come up with...

Writing is what we all do on the internet....haha anyway so are better than others. I am not a writer, but I will give this some what of a shot.


I think this is just what we needed to spice up the site somewhat.

Thanks! Glad you're back!

 I look forward to reading them all

That's a great idea PI (as in Poison Ivy, not Magnum). I'll amend the blog to reflect that.
