Current project: Torn World Contest

So, ellenmillion  came up with this really cool world, where the ancients were playing with time and really screwed things up.  At the time of the stories she's written so far, the world is becoming less fractured, but many changes were wrought by the time storms and by having some places where time ran much faster than others. 

She has decided to turn it into a collaborative project, allowing other people to participate--to write stories and submit art, and once the site is out of beta-testing, readers will be able to not only subscribe to the stories and art, but to adopt characters (gaining certain rights to control their destinies).  The website is here and there are some stories and artwork up already.

Right now, she's holding a contest for Torn World Wiki entries for plants (details on her website).  I initially had a number of ideas for animals, but was kind of stymied about plants, but came up with an idea this weekend at M.O.O.N.Con.

So, today, instead of writing a con report, I've been writing a wiki entry.  I can't tell you more about it now, since entries are anonymous until after the judging, but I thought I'd share my excitement about the world. 

It'll be up to Ellen which entries get adopted into the wiki, becoming cannon, an official part of Torn World.  And, of course, one entry will win the contest!  Maybe even mine, though there are a number of very talented people involved already.
