Yeah, this was a great chance to have it (thouroughly) proved that I can't write half as well writing fiction as I can essays. thats the school system for you...
You want to hone your writing skills -- jump into a competition like this one. You learn so much getting thrown into a whirlwind like this.BardStephenFox said:Wow, when I initially read the Ceramic DM I was thinking I could jump in at some point in the future. Watching these stories though has seriously deflated my ego. That's a good thing! I need to hone my writing skills so I can jump into a future competition.

Don't think you need to be "at a certain level" in order to enter the competition -- you'll rise to the occasion. Enter with commitment and a sense of fun and you'll do yourself (and all of us) proud.
I don't really think of Ceramic DM as a competition so much as a CELEBRATION. A celebration of the creative impulse and of inspiration.

The giraffe was a reject - beautiful, but very hard to tie to a story - so I ended up using it as window dressing.
