Not my OCs though, yours! This month’s raffle is all about celebrating your creations, introducing their world, and welcoming a whole new avenue for inspiration! You may also meet some people whose interaction with you and your worlds could inspire you to finally start the story you always wanted to write – or to finish the last chapter before you fix up the manuscript and send it to an editor then publisher. You’ll probably also find lots of people to talk to and develop your OC – some of my best friends here on dA I became friend with discussing our OCs.

So, how do you participate in this raffle? Simple, simply participate in a meme whether by illustration or writing some short scenes. It has to be a new meme – as in created after today’s date.

Want to get more entries? Interact with your peers. Look through the entries and interact with the OCs; find some characters that interest you or that you are curious about and talk to the creator about them – ask questions and share about your character.

I’ll be doing some memes this month [both written and illustration] which will hopefully inspire you. See mine below:

***feel free to adapt any illustration meme to a written/journal meme and vice versa***

Try to link back to the original meme creators, after all, we wouldn’t be here without them!

 

 

How to Participate:

You don’t have to have a deviantArt account to participate (though it certainly makes tracking your comments and entries a tad easier) – feel free to out-link me if you still want to participate!

Illustrated or write answers to one of the OC memes linked below. This will get you one entry (no matter if you do a single meme or an entry with a partner). Make sure to tag me or send me a link so I can see it then I’ll note you your first raffle number!

You only get one entry for completing a meme but you are welcome to do more than one or make friends and do a double – I love learning about your characters!!

**written memes can be done either by telling me what your character would do (like my examples above) or write a short dialogue or scene (try to keep it under 300 words). Remember you want a snapshot of your characters to entice readers~

 

How to Earn Additional Entries:

Once you complete your meme go here [link coming soon] to view the current entries and interact. You must comment more than a, “cool character” or “tell me about [insert character]” – read the meme, learn something about the character, and ask something more specific like “what is [Jon]’s favorite thing about winter?” or “why did [Jacqueline] stop being friends with [Ash] when they were seventeen?” etc.

For each different participant’s meme you comment on you’ll get another entry.

 

Prizes:

Will be announced soon!

Two possible winners – THREE if a certain entry amount is met [TBD]

 

Deadline:

May XX, 2016 (coming soon)

 

Drawing:

May xx, 2016 [date TBD] during a live stream, just like the last one.

Memes – Partner (want to do this with a friend? one double meme will count for one entry each for both of you):
