  8. Can we submit something that we have written on the forums? or does it have to be brand-new?

  9. Something brand-new, please. You are welcome to take inspiration from a past post, however. :)
  10. I think this is a fun looking idea but as a person who can't write a story (as I know of...) I won't be participating. Good luck guys and happy illustrating. ;)

  11. Good luck all writes! I might try! :D I have an idea. That’s quotes Minecraft makes no sense. And it talks about all the thing in minecraft the make no sense

  12. A reminder that blog posts don't have to be stories. ;) As long as it's Minecraft-related and grammatically correct, you could go for something fun but informative.
  13. I'm thinking about that game theory having to do with endermen, I could do a report on that.
    Or I could rank every minecraft mob from worst to best.
    meh... a lot of things have already been done before
  14. Quick question, do we fill out the entry after we've created the blog and on the last question we send the link to our blog? Haha, sorry I get confused quite often. :D

  15. You can either copy and paste what you wrote into the last question, or you can share a link to a Google doc or something similar with your writing in it. :)

  16. Ah, got it.
  17. Submitted! Should make for a good read xD
  18. 100% is about a tnt mod :)
  19. Ah yes, the one contest I have a chance at winning, with the one topic I have a chance at doing well, and I can’t do the in game research for an entry because my account’s broken.

  20. It doesn't necessarily have to be about something in-game on EMC. :) I'm sure that there are many Minecraft topics that you could find resources for online to create something original. You could even write an original Minecraft-themed story that would require no in-game research at all. :D
