    Welcome to the first ever orangebranch writing competition. These will be run once every month, usually at the beginning of the month. Anyone who plays on Applecraft can submit, but I can only give prizes out on Red and Purple, as these are the only servers I have DB on. (Later if I get a sponsor on Blue, I would be open to giving out prizes there also).
    The rules of the competition are very simple, I post a prompt, and everyone has one week to write, revise and submit their prompt to me. Submissions should be sent to me (reinposer#2174) on discord as a PDF. There are prizes for first and second place and you can take your prize on either Red or Purple. 1st place receives 10 DB on Red or 12 DB on Purple, and 2nd place receives 5 DB on Red or 7 DB on Purple.
    This months prompt is: Write a 800 word comedy about an alien stranded on earth. The story must include a fork. Submissions are due by one week from today, so August 12th at Midnight US Eastern time is the latest you can submit. Good luck to all! And if anyone has any questions, feel free to comment below or DM me on discord.

    Just a quick clarification, the 800 word limit isn't insanely strict, if you're at 805, or 820 it's fine, but if you're at 900-1000, you would need to trim it down to around 800 words.

    If you could put it as a PDF (easiest way is to write it in google docs and then download it as a PDF from there) that would be best but I'd accept a text submission if you must.
