In an effort to spread the word about my project, Me Make Monster (which lets you make a monster, then get it printed on t-shirts, mugs, and other Zazzle products) I've just launched a Story Contest.
The way it works is, you visit the site and make a monster, giving it a name. Then click the "Enter Our Story Contest" button. This takes you to a new page, where you enter a little info (including the name of your monster), and then write or paste in your story.
The contest will run for a month, and I really have no idea what to expect. As far as the stories themselves, anything goes - though I'm suggesting people write about a few specific things regarding their monster, if they're not sure what to cover:
- its origins
- secret lair/domain
- how it feeds
Winners will be announced on December 15th - I may even read the winning stories aloud, accompanied by some simple monster animation. That seems like it would be cool.
