POV Character

   Thread Started October 11 at 2:45PM

Just to clarify. The POV character is the main character, the one the story is really about. In this case, it can be a writer OR the character that comes to life. At some point, they must meet.

I take it you mean that it is the character's author that must be included? It doesn't actually state that, and I see someone has interpreted it as not being that author, but themselves.

However, if this is the intent it might not hold up in judging by the CEC as they, apparently, only adhere to what is written in the prompt, not the intent of the author and I have been told by the CEC before that the clarification in the threads does not count as competition rules.

Contest rules were amended. They now read:

Your POV character can be the fictional creation or the writer who created him or her. The fictional character comes to life. What happens? At some point, the fictional character must meet the creator. Fictional stories only, no audio, graphics or poetry. 1000-3000 words. Contest voters will be asked to consider the topic when making a choice for a winner.
