4th Annual "River of Mnemosyne" Challenge

The Tenth Daughter of Memory has returned, and it's one again time to separate the Spartans from the Helots...

RIVER OF MNEMOSYNE, 2013

Welcome to the FOURTH ANNUAL "RIVER OF MNEMOSYNE" Challenge at The Tenth Daughter of Memory.  We're going to explain the rules today, giving you ample time to ask questions and get clarifications prior to the challenge!  For you RoM veterans out there, please notice that there are quite a few changes this time around, so read these rules carefully.

The Challenge

1. For the challenge, you are creating a single overall work (in any format) that will encompass all of the posted Muses this month.  Each participant may only submit one (1) entry for the challenge. Basically, your first post is "Muse 1," your second post is "Muse 2," etc. There will be nine (9) designated Muses for a total of nine (9) chapters.

2. The goal is to tell a complete story (be it visual or written) through all nine Muses, but you can end your story at any time; after any Muse. To designate your ending, just write a big "The End" at the end of your final entry.

The Muses

3. The first Muse has been selected by the administrators and your first entry will be based on that. The subsequent Muses will be chosen based on the fastest submissions. The first person to link an entry picks the first Muse. The second person to link an entry (any entry) picks the second Muse, and so on. In all likelihood, this means that the people who link in positions 1 through 9 on the link widget will pick the nine (9) Muses.
  • To submit a Muse, simply email the admins (their contact information is on the left sidebar) with the Muse.
  • New Muses will post at 12:00 AM, GMT, the day after an admin receives the submitted Muse (no more than one Muse will post in a day).
4. Participants will link their blog entries per the usual procedure.  We will be using one widget for the entire exercise, participants need to denote the chapter number of their specific entries each time they link.  Example:
  1. Johnny Fresh (Muse 1)
  2. Linda Linda (Muse 1)
  3. Johnny Fresh (Muse 2)
  4. Johnny Fresh (Muse 3)
  5. Linda Linda (Muse 2)
  6. Robert Radical (Muse 1)
  7. and so on...
5. Do not skip Muses or do them out of order.  Also, do not combine Muses into one post.

6. Other than that, do as much or as little as you'd like.  You can dictate your own pace; approach this at warp speed or just mosey along.  It doesn't matter how far along you are compared to how far along the other challengers are.  Your entries for the first Muse can be linked starting February 1st.

The Vote

7. Voting begins on the 26th and you'll be voting for the participant's overall body of work. Our usual rule of "don't vote, can't win" still applies. Anyone who posts a "Muse 1" AND a "Muse 2" is allowed to vote, regardless if they continue on in the challenge.

8. In addition to normal voting, completing Muses 1 through 9 will add bonus points to your final vote tally (the value of the bonus points is based on the number of participants). 

9. The winner will be announced on March 11th and will receive the "River of Mnemosyne, 2013" trophy to post on their blog.

Feel free to barrage the admins and comment sections with questions and suggestions. No, really... if you aren't sure of something, ask an admin immediately.

Get your river flowing! And have fun!
