Announcing the…

Blue-Collarward” Anonymous OneShot Contest

Hosted by TwiGirls Next Door (www.twigirlsnextdoor.com)

What is it we're looking for, you ask?

We want the best Blue-collarward that you can give us. Yes, that's right, we want Edward to get down and dirty and work hard for his money.

Definition: A blue-collar worker is a member of the working class who typically performs manual labor and earns an hourly wage.

Blue-collar jobs include but are not limited to:

-Construction
-Plumber
-Garbageman
-Electrician
-Miner
-Mechanic
-Janitor


So, what are the rules?

-Contest is open to all pairings. But Edward MUST be the main character and have the blue-collar job.

-No rape, incest, pedophilia or excessive drug use will be allowed.

-Entries can be all human or include vampires.

-Any rating will be accepted.

-Entries can be collaborations or a solo entry.

-All entries must be between 2,000 and 10,000 words, maximum of two entries per person/collab team.

-Entries must be an one-shot that must be a stand alone original story. It cannot already have been published somewhere else.

-Entries cannot be continued until AFTER the contest is over.

-Because the contest is anonymous, please no Author’s Note’s. I’m sure your Beta(s) will understand and you can add them after the contest is over when you post the story to your own account.

-Once you have submitted your story, no changes can be made.

-Entrants may promote the contest itself, but not their own story. Stories may not be posted anywhere but the Blue-Collarward Contest profile FF.net page until the winners have been announced. Entrants deviating from this rule, including posting teasers, will be disqualified and their story removed from the contest. We’re operating on the honor system, so let's be fair and follow the rules.

-Please have your story beta’d. Stories will be validated for spelling and grammar, and if the story does not pass validation, it will be returned to you. You will, however, be welcome to resubmit it with corrections to spelling or grammar. If you wish to obtain a beta and do not already have one, we strongly recommend you check out Project Team Beta:


Please Note:

Although you cannot share your entry, you can let people know you have submitted a story for the contest. If you would like to promote the contest, feel free to use the banners which can be found on the Twilighted Thread.

After the announcement of the contest winner(s), entrants are free to add their stories to their individual FF.net or Twilighted accounts. TwiGirls Next Door will list all entrants and their authors in our Blue-Collarward Contest FanFiction Profile. http://www.fanfiction.net/~bluecollarwardcontest
