CONTEST MISSION:


I

want to read some nonfiction encompassing something 'Controversial'. Abortion to religion, to the benefits of boredom, the sky's really the limit here (all entries in Round I). Why? Because I enjoy it! More information? THE MANDATORY TOPIC just for ROUND VII. IS FAITH. You must write about FAITH. Whatever the word does or doesn't mean to YOU. Tell me about your religion, or lack thereof; describe how you cope with life's ups and downs, with or without FAITH. If you don't ascribe to a formal religion, how do you view others who do, what drawer do you file away your hopes and disappointments in? Yes, I want to know!


Give me opinions, but also give me YOUR conclusions (even if you're not sure) Teach me something *ThumbsUpL* More information? Be OPINIONATED. Be VERY opinionated. This is not the time to be 'PC', or politically correct! You should support your opinions through examples, analogies, comparing and contrasting (perhaps). Include a statistic or two if needed (more technical subjects often require some stats, peeps!) and...crafty writing *Bigsmile*

*Down* Note: *Down*
Not a RULE,
but I came across this article from Jeff is Buzz Lightyear In it he talks about FORMATTING your writing here onsite. IF you are NEW to Writing.com especially, PLEASE read this. I have a particular pet peeve—I hate long paragraphs. It has to do with using a 12" iPad screen most of the time *Bigsmile* Regardless of my peculiarities, it's a very helpful item, so do check it out:

Effective Formatting  [E]
A comparison of good and poor WDC formatting.

Dem Damn RULES:


(1). Write me at least 1,500 Words on the subject of FAITH. *Left* Do a WORD Count! No Word Maximum.


Tee hee wheeeeee


(2). NonFiction ONLY. No stories, unless they're true *Think* Nonfiction BAby *ThumbsUpL*

(3). For ROUND VII., I'll be accepting
ONLY NEW writes. Wait until the contest OPENS please before posting your write to WdC, m'kay? Thanks. Be sure it's opinionated *Smile* BE BRAVE!

(4). One of the reasons this contest has a higher rating is because I don't want to limit anything—so the entries will often be rated higher, cool beans? Also, I don't care about cussing. Do keep in mind that cursing can detract from a good argument. Curse wisely.

(5). This contest is an In & Out item type. Create a NEW Static Item, then give me the Item ID # in the form at the very bottom of this page. If you're out of room in your Portfolio contact me, we can work something out. I'm easy *Smirk2*


(6). ONE ENTRY PER PERSON for this Round.

(7). You are guaranteed a full review by ONE judge ONLY (just in case) though most shall receive two. Reviews will ALWAYS be PUBLIC. If you'd like to request a PRIVATE review, just let us know.

(8). This Contest is FREE to ENTER. Any donations go to the Admininstrative costs of running the 4C's (this is for any who can't help but toss GPs around, kindly. I do that sometimes, too). Let not poverty stop any from entering! But the GROUP Admin BANK FUND is here:
"The 4 Controversies Contest GROUP Prizes, Entry GPs, Merit Badges, and Trinkets and advertising come out of the bank and most is paid for by me. I enjoy being generous if I can.

(9). Contest has an END DATE of October 7, 2019, @ 11:59PM, WdC Time (EST. = WdC time). I reserve the right to extend it by no more than (7) days. RESULTS & your REVIEWS will not exceed FOUR WEEKS after contest end date. We like to get results in much, much sooner, but I have been known to get real sick. Acts of God not included *Cross2*

There will never be any further rules. Period. I think. Fewer, but not more!

Wait! One more note:
Keep in mind that if we think your entry is 'just another essay', or the writing errors are numerous, you'll score lower. Errors can mean the difference between placing, and not. This is not just another essay for school—being opinionated requires some personality, some more emotion presented along with facts, and . . . your unified OPINIONS. We are not fluff reviewers, but we will be respectful and honest—'tis the whole point IMO! My judging decisions are final. DUH.
