:star: RULES :star:


:bulletred: The theme "secret santa" can be mentioned as little or a lot as you want. No, your entry does not have to contain the word 'santa' in it, but it must fit the theme somehow. Rate your work as mature if needed.

:bulletred: Join the group :iconfiction-writers:
(Kakikotoba as well, if you wish)
so that you can enter your entries into the SECRET SANTA CONTEST folder! If you do not wish to remain in the group after the contest is over, you may leave, but I hope the writers won't.

:bulletred: At least no more than 6,000 words! No minimum, but don't just put 1 word or letter.

:bulletred: In your deviation's description, mention that it is for my contest and link/thumb back to this journal.

:bulletred: 1 entry from each person(s) per category (YOU CAN ENTER BOTH A STORY AND POEM)

:bulletred: If you have questions or comments, comment or note me.

:bulletblue: Join and help promote our groups...

We has issues! I am making a new literature account, and removing all my works from this account (so it will focus on photography). but in doing so I'll end up deleting my work, so is that ok or should i wait to move this til after judging?

oh you're moving it right? in case you place, i'd rather you not delete it. can't you submit the deviation in your other account and leave it for a while til results are announced? otherwise people aren't going to see your entry.

I'll leave it up on this account until the end of the week, so you can read it, I will also upload it onto my other account (so if I place, you can direct it there). Is that ok?

Hey there Elena! If you're entering a poem, make sure it has visual effects like different fonts, and different stanza formats, etc. I couldn't/didn't do that so that's why I entered my short story.

I just wanted you to be aware of that before you try it. :-)

Good luck!

T.S. Eliot: Elena, what are you doing there?

Elena: *OMG-face* Nothing Sir!

T.S. Eliot: Are you sure?

Elena: ^^; Yes Sir!
