Once Upon A Time - Brainstorming Results!
Hi! A HUGE thanks to everyone who contributed their ideas to Once Upon A Time! So I figured with the ideas you all have contributed, I think the majority rule might just work. So here we go!
Story Length: 500 - 1000 words
Time to Complete: 3 Weeks. This was pretty much a 50/50 with 2 weeks and 1 month. So I figured we could meet in the middle here.
Genre: Not Phased Either Way!! I did like the suggestion that we could do themed/topic for each giveaway, would love to hear your thoughts there. There were a few keen entrants for fantasy and romance genres too!!
Prizes: Mix it Up was definitely the favourite, and I gotta say I've been eyeing off a few prizes I think would be pretty cool. Will post a sneak peek in the next couple of days.
Everyone or Just Winners: Just Winners. This was a close one though. Almost everyone agreed to 1st Prize Winner and 2 Runners up!
Also some questions came up!
Who Will Be Judging?? I initially thought that posting the stories on here (without names of course) and have a poll to vote on my sidebar, but another person mentioned that if we were to go with pitching to a publisher, have a group get together on chat group or Skype and workshop eachothers story. Also to keep original work off the net so no-one could copy the stories and distribute. One idea I came up with was using a pdf document and disabling the printing and saving option. I'm not sure if this can be done but just a thought. What are your thoughts on this??
Almost forgot! If there are any POD Publishers etc who would like to sponsor Once Upon a Time you can email me on email@example.com . Thank you to the person who suggested this idea. Fantastic!
So everyone, what are your thoughts on this post? I'd love to hear what you have to say. I am working on getting a Button/Badge made for Once Upon A Time and with any luck we might have one by next week.
Thank you all for your time!
