Potions

Post by mimi on Mon Aug 16, 2010 1:26 pm

This month we are doing something slighty more magical Smile We are going to write some potions!

What does it mean?

You have to write a potion for either integrity, love or unity. It can be a poem, a made up recipe, a haiku or a song.

If you're doing a recipe, don't forget the ingredients and special instructions!

That's not it though!
After you finish your potion and you post it here, you have to write a cover letter and send it to competition@kerli.net

What is a cover letter?

It is an explanation of:

- Why did you chose that word to write a potion about?
- It fits between 200 - 300 words. (fail to fit in the limits, you will be disqualified)
- It is personal and secret. Noone will see it but me & couple of other friends who will help me choose the winner.
- It shows you have thought this through. You have put effort and your heart in it.

To do:
- Carefully read through the instructions I have made, make sure you understand them.
- Start thinking of which potion you would like to create
- Write it
- Post your potion in the 'August - September competiton' category as a new topic > WITH YOUR USERNAME AS THE TITLE
- Write a cover letter
- Send the cover letter to competition@kerli.net

PRIZES
This month there wont be a video from Kerli but the prizes are still cool and worth the work!
The winner will get a poster,an autograph and Walking On Air Single OR Kerlified jewellery Smile

PS! It's NOT about perfect English! It's about creativity and putting your heart and mind to it.
PS2! You can only enter once, so make it count! Smile

GOOD LUCK

The competition will end ON the 17th of September!!!

so, for the cover letter you have to right 200 - 300 words about why you chose that word? so you have to choose from writing (or making a recipe) about either integrity, love or unity? right?????

this sounds really fun Very Happy

"The winner will get a poster,an autograph and Walking On Air Single OR Kerlified jewellery"
(1) what is "kerlified jewelry?" jewelry made by Kerli herself? (2) so we can get either: a poster OR an autograph OR a walking on air single OR kerlified jewelry? or does it go: a poster OR an autograph with a walking on air single OR kerlified jewelry? Suspect confused afro

pixiedust19 - yes u have to choose ONE word to make a potion about. and the cover letter is an explanation of why u chose that one and why u did this and that and the other.

moonchildjennifer - the winner will get a poster and an autograph for sure. and they can choose between the single and kerlified jewellery. kerli said she wants to do some, yeah.

The prizes shouldn't be the most important thing here though.. they r just a little something for ur work. But with this competition - if u do it just for the prize, we'll read it from your cover letter & u will not get anything. so, put ur mind and heart in it, create smth beautiful & then start thinking of the prizes.

Haiku is a style of poetry which originates from Japan, where a poem has only three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the last one has 5 syllables again.

The only part of the competition with a word limit is the explanation of why you chose either Integrity, Love or Unity to base your potion on, which you send to the e-mail address Mimi mentioned (competition@kerli.net). The potion itself does not have a word limit.

As for the potion, you just post the poem/recipe/pictures etc. in a topic on the forum.

I hope that helped Smile

No. Just write your poem, song, or haiku, or whatever, and post your topic. Then e-mail your coverletter to the email Smile
That's it, no art needed xD

The forum post states the cover letter needs to be 200-300 words long. But the video claims 100-200. Maybe I'll tweak mine to be exactly 200 words, just to be safe... should we assume 100-300 is good?

Hey your email address to send the cover letters to has a typo. competiton@kerli.net should be competition@kerli.net
Google got angry at me for using an invalid email address...
*edit* I got my email failure notification from the mailer-daemon@googlemail.com, I kid you not.

Ooh, I'm loving this. I'm really gonna milk the time. I wouldn't be surprised if I put it in the day before it ends. I've been editing SO much. I've been working on this since last night and I'm halfway through my third stanza.

But at least I'm giving it my best!

i wrote a story on 2 pages and it's not even 20% of what I was planning to write, it was supposed to be an intro and now I just "hitted the wall" because I have to create something in here to make it MORE than just intro but if I would, it would become a story and I don't want to suffer writing 10pages of "intro" just to write the story I wanna write -_-
probably just gonna stick to writing a poem cuz stories become to long when I try to write them xD
