The rules are simple: the first sentence of your story should begin with the letter A. The second with the letter B, the third with C, etc. The story can have exactly 26 sentences, but it's not a requirement - you can stop at any letter you want, or even repeat the alphabet a few times in the story. You can write about any topic you want, even about someone learning the alphabet.
It is primarily a story-oriented challenge, but you can also draw a picture of it - the objects of the picture should be ordered alphabetically. You can for example draw the Fellowship, or Feanor's sons standing in alphabetic order.
The deadline for this challenge is October 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!
For writers: send your stories to email@example.com. 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 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!
