Writer's Games Tips and Hints
There are no bonus points awarded for "first received". Each Event lasts 72 hours, so take your time and make sure your entry says what you want it to, the way you want it to. If you rush your entry, it's probably not your best work. Submit work you are proud of, not something you threw together.
Edit your work. All submissions should be publication ready.
Pay close attention to your Title Information. Missing, misplaced, or incorrect Title Information will result in entry disqualification. The Submissions guide has all the information you need to create a successfully formatted entry... including a sample Title Information block and How-To guides for all three accepted file types.
Try to participate in all Events. The more Events you enter, the higher your Overall Score. The highest Overall Score wins!
Unreasonable demands will be met with the Wrath of Righting.
Be respectful of your fellow participants. Remember there are all ages and cultures here.
