    1.14 is here! You know what that means:

    1.14 WRITING COMPETITION!

    As many of you probably know, book & quills were reworked in 1.14 to be easier to use. Hopefully that will encourage some of you to crank out your own creative works!

    So, what about this competition?
    Now, for anyone who isn't familiar with my writing competitions, here are some basics:
    The competition is only in blue world (I don't usually play the other worlds, so I can't afford a prize elsewhere)
    All submissions are in the form of Minecraft books (my competitions were created to get some more literature and storytelling onto the server)
    Books can be stories, poetry, etc.
    I do give feedback to anyone who requests feedback

    Specific Contest Info
    - Competition Theme: Curiosity
    - Books have a minimum of 3 pages
    - Competition lasts from September 17 - October 17
    - Books can be submitted at /shop Flame_star1
    - All works must be original (I do check)
    - Please submit a copy of your book (keep the original for yourself)

    Judges

    Ah! I forgot to type that up. It says in my shop, but thanks for the reminder. I'll fix the post. There is a minimum of 3 pages.

    It's gonna be quite a challenge if it's gonna be with a dark twist as usual.

    You guys are in for a treat if Flame takes you in for judges, my story will be dark, grotesque and horrifying. Haha

    @Flame_star1 - My plan is to make a sequel to "Purple Flowers", should I put in a copy of that, so the judges you choose have a chance to read the first part before judging the second one?

    I experienced that too, when I copy/pasted text that had formating from a doc I had written.
    Is that what you're doing? Because I learned if it was just neutral text it didn't have any issue.

    I still have a copy of "Purple Flowers", but you can include another if you want. You don't need to though.

    How does it glitch you out? I've never run across that issue.

    It can help keep your progress if you close the book every couple of pages and reopen it to continue, but that may not help with your issue.

    There may be a way to fix whatever it is, but I'm not sure. Just let me know what happens, and if we can't figure it out, I'll come up with an alternate way to submit.

    So could I then ask you to make sure the other judges get to read the one you already have, so they know the story?
