    Before I accept, these are my basic demands:

    Any writing contest means that not only will content be judged for originality, but also exposition, syntax, grammar, spelling, and an overall command of sentence structure with varying simple/compound sentences.

    The subject will be one of which we both agree. For example, it can be a basic biography of Abraham Lincoln or some other American figure.

    It will be written in essay form.

    There will be a minimal word count of no less than 1,500 words.

    Each paragraph will have a subject sentence and a conclusion.

    There must be a Bibliography.

    The judges will be impartial to either you or me.

    The loser will sign off of Dawg's forever.

    These are my basic demands before submitting to any writing contest.

    Submit your approval or stay content dying a slow insignificant death.

    Just so you know, his contest with Naked Critic was a movie review thing. NC wrote circles around him, but the judges thought it was too superfluous and flowery. Fat Animalgod told the story of the movie and said it was pretty good, and people decided that equalled a better review. :rolleyes:

    Can you narrow down "fatso"? This is the internet, after all.

    Points shouldn't be deducted for style.

    Points should be deducted for wordiness.

    This totally limits various stylistic approaches. Creative writing is not an English test.

    There is no way to critique creative writing, it becomes a matter of taste. This is a contest demonstrating basic writing skills which must be measured so that we do not confuse creativity for bad writing.

    He is better off sticking to eating contests, but if he wants to demonstrate how stupid he is, I'm all for it providing there are certain conditions compliant with most essay writing contests.

    Why would you want a conclusion for each paragraph? Shouldn't the end of each paragraph be a transition to the next paragraph? And just have a conclusion at the end?
