Mystical journeys until
Her eyes slowly close
Real MedievalMerciless mercenaries making money from murderReal Medieval by IdleScribbler
Bright, brash boys fighting in horrible, bloody battles
Pillage and rape ravaging the realm
Disease and death darkening the days
Flaming family trees from fearsome foreign foes
Sailing overseas to steal a sovereign's son
Holding him hostage for but a heap of gold
But money means too much; more sons can be made
Merchants' meals making mean men fat
Peasants' pitiful pay making pleasant people die
Wonderful women burned alive for witchcraft
... Medieval merriness? Mostly a lie.

What the hell is a "scratch that?"
An excellent question! This is the biggest thing this group has ever done. It will be 5 rounds of tournament style writing, with varying themes and writing styles! Each round will last 2 weeks! (Dates will be posted further along in this journal.)
Anyone can enter! We're trying to make this as big as possible, so members, non-members and their dogs may enter! Bare in mind, however, that the very first round will be an audition. Only 50 people will then be selected to go through to the competition, so make sure you write to the very best of your ability!
At the end of every round, 5 people will be eliminated. We will celebrate the best poet of that round by giving them small prizes.
That sounds awesome, but what's in it for me?
Prizes, my friend. Riches beyond your wildest dreams, fame and glory.
No, I lied. Here's what is actuall
|I'm an 18 year old Uni student, born and raised in Australia. I'm a bit of a grammar nazi (don't hate me! D= ), probably as writing is my main hobby. I haven't done too much more than merely tinkering. In fact, I joined dA to seek out some inspiration. While writing is my personal strong suit, I appriciate just about any art, and I try my hand at visual art myself occationally. Also having a go at poetry, that's sure to be an interesting experience. I'll just point out now, I have NO experience at poetry.|
