No time to do something. It certainly happened to you, and not only once. It certainly happened to Aragorn or Legolas, as well. It is human nature to not waste time and not realize how precious it is, until we are running out of it.
One thing is having so much work that you can't enjoy your hobbies or family. And with being a king, ranger or prince, the amount of duties can be overwhelming sometimes. A reminder of what is really important can come then. Another thing entirely is running out of time when it comes to saving a friend or averting something bad that's going to happen. The seconds are ticking by, and every one of them matters, every one of them can make a difference between "in time" and "too late".
And maybe you have this great idea for a story, but no time to write it. You can try to overcome that, and write it for this Teitho! There are some short formats that you can use as well - a drabble, or even a six word story. It's quality that matters, not quantity! If you decide to draw a picture for this challenge, it can also be minimalistic, expressing your idea in a few lines.
The deadline for this challenge is June 25th. If you really have no time and need an extension, let us know! (We do not bite.)
For writers: send your stories to email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. As usually, the contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicaly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.
For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.
Happy writing and drawing!
