Kilpailun tehtävänanto

EDIT: If you're intending to submit, but the parameters (time, money, etc.) aren't right, drop me a line. I'm a flexible guy.

I've written chapter one and outlined the rest of this fantasy novel. Your task is to write chapter two (2000-3000 words, give or take a few hundred, should suffice). Winner gets the prize money and all high-quality entries will all be invited to bid on--and given special consideration for--my next project, which will be to ghostwrite the rest of the novel (about 23 chapters in total, so you'd have to write 21 chapters yourself, but you'll have a few months to do it). By submitting an entry to this project, you agree that I own sole rights to all material submitted. I thank you for your service!

Some more things:
1. I named my username after the main character, and neither are my real name in life. That would be weird.
2. Feedback on an appropriate size for the prize money is welcome in the comments. I do not know what the market expects for decent-quality work in a contest format. I tried to offer a higher price than I would normally pay for one chapter, simply because while someone is guaranteed to win, there's no guarantee that that someone is you.
3. I'm obviously reluctant to publicly post the full outline just now. Some things are hinted at in the first chapter, and they won't make sense until later. Just use your imagination as to what they might mean, or ask a question. :)
4. Don't sweat it if you can't stick to the outline 100%, and if inspiration strikes you, feel free to deviate a little. Creativity will be rewarded. I'm really just looking for someone who can put together a coherent story from an outline here.

    Any chance you have last names picked out for Anna and Frazer? I'm working through scene 2 right now.

      Hi am in the process of writing out the chapter....I have a quick question....When you say Daniel died of the sickness....Do you mean a sickness the comes from the excessive use of magic? Does Ismael's experiment have anything to do with trying to prevent this sickness happening to him?

      The Sickness is related to magic use, yes. The exact nature of .ishmael's experiment is not integral to the plot, except that it is forbidden and important. Curing the Sickness is a good idea with much potential.

    I am very impressed with the quantity and quality of submissions so far! Thank you for all that you do! Also, customer service got back to me, and there is no way to accept text files in a contest. You will have to convert doc to JPEG or take a screenshot.

    I guess for me being an elder in a spiritualist group I find this to be a bit hard to imagine. Regardless of the magic involved there are certain things that can and can not happen when one involves the Astral aspects of anything Astral. So, I guess I am going to back out of this because though the story is great, it's written wrong or at least the Astral aspects of it. I mean we are talking about three people and a property that cross over into the Astral. Though that could be possible, there would be so much more of a process to become accurate before any of them let alone the property would emerge within the Astral. Maybe I am looking into this to far but then again I like to write a story that is detailed to a 'T'..

    So, I read your firt chapter and I like the basic story line and though I originally did enter this contest to try and write the contest chapter for you, I have some questions/concerns with the Astral aspect considering Angelo's house along with Christine, etc.... all coverted to the Astral aspect through Ishmaels magical crafting?

    Hello, I would love to ask you a few questions before I get on with the writing. If you don't mind, I can ask them here, or you can contact me through a personal message? In short, I have a few questions about the world Ishmael lives in... Thanks in advance.

      I might compare Ishmael to Robert Oppenheimer. Having seen what was coming (the Germans), he obsessed for years and built the atomic bomb, sure that it was all for the greater good.

      Okay, thanks a lot! I generally got the same idea that you told me, but felt that it would be better if I clarified. Expect my entry soon!

    Hi. I am trying to submit an entry but it is set up to only accept JPG, PNG or GIF files and not documents. Can I email it directly or is there another way to submit it? Thanks

      Huh. That's an issue. I laud your inventiveness in getting around it; I wonder if there's a way to change the settings.

    Hi, please give the entire outline of the book, theme, how you would want it to go, etc. Also it would be preferable if you could hire me directly for this project as I am a copywriter with experience and able to work fast and in a creative manner.

      This contest is just for chapter two, as a sample to see how different freelancers' writing looks, and possibly to find a good candidate for the rest of the novel. It sounds like you'd be better suited to wait until I post the ghostwriting project for the entire novel (I'll do that in about a week), although it would help your chances at being hired if I were to see some kind of writing sample by that time.
