Thoughts of the Day: Most people put part of themselves in their OCs. What part of yourself do you see in your OC? Would you be best friends or enemies if you ever met? Remember, your OC is just as unique as you are!

all you have to do is type :dev da-writersrevolution: exactly as I typed it without the space between "dev" and the group's name. You can try it here if you want :) it will end up making this: dA-WritersRevolution You can do the same with other people, and if you replace "dev" with "icon", then you get the icon of whomever you tag: :icon da-writersrevolution: without the space gets :iconda-writersrevolution:

"One entry per person per category; Must have at least 3 entries per category in order to validate the contest."

wat xD Can I ask for someone to explain? :P I do have a slight idea to work the said statements, but I'm not exactly sure.

One person may submit to all three categories, but they can only submit one work to each.

"Must have at least 3 entries per category in order to validate the contest"

This simply means that in each category, we must have three submissions (from different people), in order to have anything worth judging.  No sense in having a contest if there are only one or two submissions per category. 

I hope this clarifies things.

Of course! :D

You are allowed one entry in each of the categories. In other words, if you choose category 2, you can only write one poem for it. If you choose category 3, you must choose either a poem or a short story, not both. Only one entry will be valid.

Each of the categories must have at least 3 submissions in order for us to continue with the contest and give out the prizes. So, if category 1 gets 4 submissions, category 2 gets 3, and category 3 gets only 2, then categories 1 and 2 will be judged and the prizes awarded, but category 3 will not be judged because it did not get enough entries.

Does that make sense? :?

I can make sketches... maybe some coloured work. 

I'd like to specify I'll only draw original characters- they don't have to be from an original universe, but I'm tired of just drawing batman.

Thanks for this, I'll see what I can do... Its nice to have a little nudge like this.

For the thought of the day, yeah I put a lot of me into my OC, even down to my first name. It gets a little awkward but its worth it, because it really does make writing him and the others around him a lot easier. :3

Haha, yeah, i tend to consciously put the opposite of me in some of my characters. Like, I don't like bananas, but my main char does.
