MediaMiner's Maximum Challenge Fiction Contest


That's right, the Second Annual Maximum Challenge has been posted. I have decided to submit Child of the Moon in the categories of "And Then Cry Me A River," and "Sing a Song of Sixpence." If you will recall, last year, I won first place in the "And Then Cry Me A River" category for my original piece Bleeding Through. I don't expect I'll win/place with Child, but in the past year, I'd say it's my best completed work. It was fun putting my favorite band and Inuyasha characters together in one piece. Rest assured, I do have other stories on the docket (other than Journey, mostly song fics), so one never knows, I might try my hand at it again.

I have yet to decide if I will submit The Journey to the City of Endless Night for any categories. I am not certain if I want to make the judges have to read that long of a story when they will have so many other entries to work on. Perhaps if it was completed, I would consider it. Besides, I already know it can win awards as it has in the IYFG and Feudal Association.

Speaking of which, as you'll note, the nominations period has begun for the IYFG again. I have to thank doggieearlover for nominating Journey in the Best Serial category. This quarter, it is my only story eligible to nominate. Just remember, do not nominate it for Best Crossover, as I have requested. The Feudal Association is also having its voting period right now through January 20. Thanks to doggieearlover, again, Child of the Moon is on the ballot for Best Characterization for Sesshomaru. Don't forget to vote for your fave fics and fanart.

Other than that, I am hoping to get this silly chapter to finish itself up so you can enjoy. I know it has been a long wait!

Until next time,
