25th Birthday Contest!

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 3, 2012, 8:40 AM

I'm Turning 25!

In honor of my quarter century (25 years old!) I want you to tell me what you want to accomplish by the time you are 25. If you are already 25, by the time you're 50. Older than 50, 75. Older than 75, 100. Also, if you're older than 75 you have mad props for being here. ;)

The Catch: You can only use 25 words, and I want them to be poetic. You can use whatever format, but you have to use exactly 25 words. And they have to express your wish in a poetic manner.

The Details: Upload your entry to the correct gallery, then send the thumb or link to me in a note titled "25th Bday Contest". I will be counting words, so make sure you get exactly 25 or it will be disqualified. You can enter as many times as you wish.

The Prize: Three winners will receive 250 points each and a feature in my journal. Each entrant can win only once.

I'm Looking For: Words that inspire, create desire, make me feel something. I want to know what's in that beating bucket of blood you've got inside your chest.

Entries Due: on my birthday, November 18, 2012 @ 11:59pm Eastern Time.

:iconcakelickplz: Thanks for helping me celebrate!

:heart: Lili

Tell me what you want to do by the time you're 25, 50, 75, or 100! And do it in 25 words, exactly.

:tighthug: I've seen your recent journals, not been on dA enough to really catch up with them or anything, but all the love, all the hugs, all the happiness, and may your birthday be extremely extremely wonderful. :)
And on another note, this is a fantastic idea for a contest, very tempted to enter! Question, does an ampersand count as a word or is it cheating? ;)

Ooooh. My weakness for ampersands! You are exploiting it. :lol: I'm gonna say it counts as a word since it technically replaces "and". :P

I'm gonna say one. Since you're compounding it. ;)

For example, if it's a free-verse poem, that you submit it to <free-verse>, or of it's an emotional poem that you submit it to <emotional>
In other words, the galleries you choose when you submit any work on DA.

Oh, ok- I just got confused because usually when groups run contests- there's a specific folder for them, however- since it's a person doing a contest I got a wee bit confused! Thank you for clearing it up :)

I tried! Like four times. It keeps going back to the same thing. But it isn't of me. :nana:

Aww, i haven't clicked on it yet - not even to laugh at what you actually have linked to your journal - due to the potential nsfw nature and me being on a computer not owned by me but now i already feel so let down that it isn't you...

Does the 25 words include the title? Because I always title and date my things which then counts as extra words... :?
Reply
:iconliliwrites:
LiliWrites Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
No. The title doesn't count, unless it is like the first line of your piece or something. :)
