Hey DLP, What do you want for Christmas? More stories to read? Me too! That's why we're bringing back the DLP Short Story Competition. The competition provides a prompt/first line/theme, a word limit, and a deadline to authors. Authors submit their stories to a designated moderator, they're posted anonymously, and reviewed/scored by the community. The competition will be held on a regular basis (we're thinking monthly right now, but we'll see). Winning entries will receive ultimate DLP bragging rights as well as a forum badge. Some details TBD, but here's what you need to know for the first competition: Prompt: Harry discovers why Albus doesn't drink Word limit: 10k Deadline: 27th of December. Entries should be sent to Xiph0 via private message. Xiph0 will post them anonymously in the Story Competitions forum, where users will vote on them. Instructions for voting will be in a sticky thread in the forum once entries are posted. Dust off your muses and break out the fireball DLP, because Albus is thirsty and the night is young. Feel free to ask questions in this thread. Finally, a shout out to Sorrows who badgered us into making this happen and organized much of the process. Without her, this wouldn't have happened any time soon.
