View Full Version : Story of a Smuggler (FanFic CONTEST!!!)

20 January 2003, 02:08 AM
Hi all! This is a contest to see who can write the best story involving a smuggler or two-peson team of smugglers, original characters only. The story should attempt to describe as many aspects of a smuggler's life as possible, and should be a well-balanced mix of downtime, action, and business. Entries should be at least 1 page long, and no longer than 10 pages. 5 or less pages would be preferrable, but if it's damn good writing I'll take up to 10. Entries should be sent to me via e-mail(jhneely@mccallie.org) or posted as an attachment to this thread. All entries are due by March 15th. The stories will be judged by me, me, and me. The winner will have the honor of being featured in the Underworld Sourcebook, a dual-system sourcebook made by SWRPG fans from SWRPGNetwork.
Any questions should be posted in this thread. Thanks all! Good luck and great writing!

You may submit up to 3 entries. They should be your best quality work.

Do you prefer a particular file format? If not, is MS Word fine by you guys? I can also do Adobe.

.txt .doc .pdf .rtf and .wps formats are fine with me. For you Mac users out there, if you don't want to type your story in .txt format (who would?), you could consider taking screenshots of your story, saving them as .jpg or .jpeg files and sending them to me that way if you have to.

People might want to remember to write their stories in third person, the story should have a star wars feel after all.

Alright, I'm game. My fic's are already written, so I can't do anything about the 3rd person part. They're already formatted in this forum, so I'll just link them here. I'm not sure if the entry is 10 pages or what, but i will say it's a darn good read. Enjoy!

I do have a group shot, drawn by Khairul Hisham, I'll include it here also (if the size fits.)

Basically about an Ex-Imperial turned smuggler, who gets more than he bargained for on his last drop-off.
