UPDATE: The author for the first part of SteemShort #6 has been chosen (2018-Apr-17)
There were 8 valid summaries submitted to the jury.
And the jury chose the summary submitted by @gbengaremi.
Here is the summary:
William Chang spent his entire life in search of one thing, and one thing only: Victory! His father, revered across the galaxy as Chang the Conqueror, always looked down on him, up till the day he died. Chang, hovering atop the planet Raoulin V, with the faith of an entire planet literally in his hands, thought about that day on earth, in their family vineyard in Paris, when his father set him up against his younger brother for a duel. How he had his brother pinned under him, but couldn’t give the final bow. “Hit him!” his father had shouted. But he couldn’t. “You’re weak, boy!” His father said. “Weak! You’ll never amount to anything.” “General Chang.” A female voice called on the bridge. “General Chang you have to decide now!” “General, we have no choice. Control gave the order, General. We can win the war with a push of that button. You can win the war!” General William Chang remained fixated on a spot, hovering; his mind hovering on that vineyard, hovering above his little brother, and his father’s voice hovering in his ears.”You’re weak, boy! You’ll never amount to nothing! Never!”
SteemShort #6- Post 1: Request for First Part of the Story
SteemShorts are short stories written collaboratively by three different authors and illustrated by an artist/photographer.
The process of creating a SteemShort is described in this post, slightly modified by this post. The rules to select the authors and illustrators have been modified, as described in this post
Rewards for each part of the story are half of total SBD payout, minus the jury fee of 15 SBD.
This is the request for the first part of the sixth SteemShort.
The theme of this SteemShort is the following:
A torn space general in the middle of a battle. Deciding for or against killing an entire species. In the name of war!. The main character is named William Chang.
Authors that want to write this first part should send 0.001 STEEM or SBD to the @steemshorts account, with their proposed summary in a memo starting with the character '#'.
This summary must be in 100 to 200 words. Any proposed summary that is shorter than 100 words or longer than 200 words will not be considered.
It is important that the memo starts with the character '#': that makes this memo readable only by the author and the @steemshorts account.The character '#' should not be preceded by any space.
Example of the beginning of a valid memo:
# It was a dark and stormy night ...
Note that it is recommended to send the 0.001 SBD/STEEM with the memo from steemit.com using a web browser, as we have seen several cases of "Invalid memo" when it was sent using an app such as eSteem.
There can be only one proposed summary per author. The proposed summaries must be received in less than 3 days after this post.
After sending their summary, authors should tell in a comment that they have sent their summary so that they can receive confirmation that their summary is valid.
After 3 days, all the valid summaries will be communicated anonymously to the 3 members of the SteemShorts jury, and they will decide which author has been chosen.
The chosen author will then be instructed how to submit their full contribution. The full contribution needs to be between 500 and 1,500 words.
Once the full contribution of the chosen author will be received, another post with this full contribution will request proposals for the second part of the story.
All authors need to agree for a "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike" (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/legalcode).
No title for the short story should be suggested. When the full text of the full story will be known, the three different authors will propose a title.
So, writers, send your summary proposals with 0.001 STEEM or SBD to the @steemshorts account.
