And Now for Something Completely Different...
Apr 2, 2017
We are going to try something new. The writing contest entry form does allow for pictures, we're going to see how that works. You can't load a picture in directly with drag and drop, you need to load it to your album first, then use the URL between the image tags.
Your entry must contain one picture, and a caption for that picture. You must have created the picture yourself through whatever means you desire, including a photo you took, chopped, an illustration, or 3D art, and it doesn't have to be new for this contest. You may use a previous entry, or any other of your creations you want. IE - shoe boxing is allowed for the picture for this contest.
The caption you write for the picture must be new, and is subject to the usual Daggerbay rules. It can be as long or short as you want, up to 250 words (we want a caption, not a story).
The caption must be part of the entry, not in the authors comments. You of course can use the author's comments box for whatever else you want as usual.
Hit List: Speech Balloons in the Picture. The text must be a caption, not in the picture itself
Further Notes: To place a picture, use the BBCode after placing it in your album. The maximum width without scrolling seems to be around 600 pixels, You probably should keep it under that. Also the text entries seem to wipe out when you try to edit them, so make sure you keep a copy off the site if you need to make changes.

Dare I speak of Mary... with her hair of soot and metal fragments. Will she wake from piston Dreams... her eyes popping open with a rusty click. Her mind on far away loves... and lovers lost... and love yet to be. Has she traveled down too many dusty roads looking for redemption. Hands held out to no one.
AP: Observers on the ground initially thought this must be a lost balloon from the Macy's parade, but then realized it wasn't November. They then thought it must be for Halloween, but realized it was not October either. Next was an April fool's joke, but it is March, not April. What happened after that was indescribable.
