A Few Tips for Contestants

If you’ve already entered the TALYN ARC contest and aren’t one of the leaders, or if you’re considering entering, here are a few tips that might help you:

* Contest theme is REDISCOVERING Honor. Which means people doing the right thing, not the wrong thing.

* Dying is easy; living is hard. The suicide solution as ending won’t fly. On the other hand, acoupland’s BREAKFAST joins the first round of finalists for going the other way in compelling fashion.

* There is hope in honor: that we can be better than we are, that we mean something to each other, that believing in being better is not a fool’s game. Honor and despair are contradictory.

Hope that helps.
