Have you got that literary tingle? You know the one that the greats have? Now is the time to test your mettle in the first Better in Game Writing Competition.

 

The premise is simple. Write a short 500-1000 word excerpt pertaining to a location on any of the BIG/Banana S’mores Servers. It doesn’t matter if it’s first person, third person omniscient, or anything in-between, this is simply for fun, oh and a fabulous grand prize of course. All short stories will need to be submitted by the end of February March. After all submissions are in, they will be posted on the forums for all to be read and voted on. The winner will receive: 1 Diamond Block, 1 Emerald Block, 1 Gold Block, and 1 Iron Block on either the Monarch or Pure Server (the winner gets to decide where they want their prize) Their story will also be featured on in-game Minecraft books that will be placed at the spawn for all new players to read!

 

To submit your short writing, send it to me (JELLOMIX) in a private message through the forums. ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BEFORE MARCH APRIL 1ST!!!  I will then compile them together for voting at the begging of March April. 

 

So, whether you want to give us a peek at how your interest was piqued on the top of a peak, or simply expand upon the day to day life and marital issues of someone inside one of your Minecraft cities, the sky’s the limit. Just make sure you’re writing about a place on any of the Better in Game servers, and don’t forget to be creative!

 

A quasi-example I wrote back when I had just finished Ealdor Tor:
