*Question*  GUIDELINES  *Question*

I believe that it's safe to say that every one of us has had a moment where our teacher (be it english, math, science, history, etc) has looked at us and asked, "And where's your homework?"

Short of saying something like, "My dog ate it," or a mumbled, "I don't know ..." this contest will be geared towards rewarding the best, most creative excuse for a missing piece of homework. Let that muse out of the closet and get to thinking (and writing!) about how you're going to explain to your teacher why you're not turning in your homework.

Make me laugh or make me cry, but all entries will be graded in each of the following areas:

1.  Setting: Could you see it? Did the author use all the senses?

2.  Character Development: How did the characters grow throughout the chapter? How believable are they?

3.  Historical Referencing: Do the clothes, hairstyles, language, actions, etc... match with the time period—this includes current day—of the setting?

4.  Plot: Did it leave you asking the right questions or were you totally lost?

5.  Grammatical: Are there any consistent grammar or spelling errors the author should be aware of?

6.  General: Talk about any other areas where there is room for improvement: POV, descriptions, dialogue, format, etc...

NOTE: All entries will receive a public review by each of the judges, in each of these areas.
