    Chow 164 :: Newborn

    Chow 164 :: Newborn

    ROUND #164 :: NEWBORN
    DESCRIPTION

    Newborn

    Two week special! Chow, along with the other weeklies, have been invited to participate in the CA-wide contest 'Newborn'.

    Pretty open topic this time, and we're only going to narrow it down a few ways.

    1.) You must start a new piece just for chow. Since Newborn allows multiple entries, this means that either you'll finally get a start on one, or you'll have a second to enter by the final deadline.

    2.) It must be character-centric, and follow chow rules. So you must be able to see 3/4ths (at least) of the character.

    3.) The character must embody the idea of Newborn. But not necessarily literally! Think creation, folks - creator, or creation, it's up to you. Keep in mind that CoW is doing something as well, so make sure you're in the character direction, not the creature direction. You will want to include the character in a background (abstract or realized) and it can be of more complex narrative too. Idea development and design are key!

    We know it's very open this week, but we hope this will inspire you to be part of the contest and support CA!

    I'm assuming the due date is July and not June? I think I'll give this a try.

    I might be having a bit of problem with how open this is...Does the new life form have to be new, or could it be something "renewed" or "reborn" or "reanimated"...for some reason vampires are springing to mind...

    Well, I already started on the newborn challenge, but it never hurts to have second piece I guess

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    Genesis, creation, production, inception. NOT just babies. Newborn is new unto the world. Use it metaphorically.

    May have time for this one.

    Busy deciding whether to stay at school or not, so then again might not.
