Long Challenge 4

ENDS 7th July 2012 @ 11:59PM (World Clock)

Fairy-tale || Mistake || Fantasy ||Children || Captured

Welcome to the first Long Challenge of the year (otherwise known as Long Challenge 4)! This time around we’ve decided to shake things up a bit! How, you may ask? Well, read the following guidelines and you’ll find out!

Once again, this challenge will be hosted by me (aka ella_rose88), so if you have any questions or queries, feel free to comment on this post or PM me. I’ll try my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

For this challenge, we have decided to allow ARTISTS to create graphics based on the above themes. The way it will work is like this:

1. ARTISTS will look at the above themes and make graphics based on said themes. Once completed, ARTISTS will then post their graphics on the Artists Post in the comment section.

2. ARTISTS will be given 5 days till the 5th of June @ 11.59PM (World Clock) to complete and post their graphics. ARTISTS are allowed to submit up to TWO pieces -- as long as they use different themes as we want some variety.

3. Once the GRAPHICS have been posted, I will then post them up on the Writers Post and WRITERS will be able to sign-up and nominate their top 3 favourite graphics they would like to base their entry on. I will then assign each WRITER with a graphic.

"Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

"Drama is based on the Mistake. I think someone is my friend when he really is my enemy, that I am free to marry a woman when in fact she is my mother, that this person is a chambermaid when it is a young nobleman in disguise, that this well-dressed young man is rich when he is really a penniless adventurer, or that if I do this such and such a result will follow when in fact it results in something very different. All good drama has two movements, first the making of the mistake, then the discovery that it was a mistake"
- W.H Auden

"No one ever promised me it would be easy and it's not. But I also get many rewards from seeing my children grow, make strong decisions for themselves, and set out on their own as independent, strong, likeable human beings. And I like who I am becoming, too. Having teenagers has made me more human, more flexible, more humble, more questioning--and, finally it's given me a better sense of humor!"
