. o o o . now that everyone has their topic, you all have until next Saturday at high noon (12:00pm in Boston/New York/Philly time zone) to write your piece and send it to my inbox. why high noon? that's when i get out of work lol. . o o o . jay fever (or anyone facing me in a given round) still sends the piece to me like everyone else, but can also send it to MiracleRic (who offered to help) and ANY OTHER PARTICIPANT of his/her choosing so he/she can be assured i'm not tampering or cheating. . o o o . PLEASE FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTION (to make life 10 times easier):
when you send your piece to my inbox, put your name AND the person you're facing in the SUBJECT line like "Auriz Deep vs BarTek".
then inside the content area, title your piece with your name, like this:
dsfahduifhasifhsdai dshfuidahiufhasifhda dfhauifdhifahidsia dfhsiuhfdiufshisdfhsi . o o o . which brings us to LENGTH: -the piece can be as long or short as you want. just be aware of the risks you take making something extremely short (people might not be impressed if it isn't very very potent) or extremely long (people might start skimming if they have to read an entire novel) . o o o . if and when i get eliminated, i'm still going to be here for you folks. i still, after all, get the fun job of choosing words and topics and reading this stuff. . o o o . I NEED ALL OF YOU to help me out with this one: how long should we leave each round up for voting until counting them all up? another week (making each round a 2 week endeavor)? you can reply here with your suggestions/comments. . o o o . if i left anything out, reply here with the much needed guidance.
