Friends and scribes… Top of the day to y’all.
On the top burner for my management and I are the winners for the 1st installment of #Creatweet.
The debates were very hard and long which is typical when you have an eclectic mash up as judges. The fusion of strategy, copywriting/creative writing and art direction produced a unique set of mechanics to evaluate the entries.
The mechanics deployed are as follows:
1. Completeness of the story: The narrative should be a closed loop – nothing should be left to the imagination. Complete resolution of the plot.
2. Content: How engaging is the plot. Did it startle and surprise? Any devices of grammar like symbolism or inversion? Any metaphor or personification etc.
3. Style: Inventiveness. Wit. Twists and Suspense?
4. And of course – the typical lexis and structure blah blah blah.
While all submissions had one or two of these elements, the winning entries resolved completely the causal factors and consequences captured in the plot (each in the last sentence). They had in them no imminent story arc that requires either a prequel or a sequel.
That said, here are our winners:
1st Prize Winner:

“I’m scared of spiders”, she said. He was hurt. “We can’t work out”, he said. “Why?” she asked. “No reason”, Peter Parker replied #Creatweet
Asides the N2000 recharge units we are giving each of these guys as a token of our appreciation for their help in getting us a working proof of concept for the
#Creatweet, the 1st prize winner would also be going away with a book – The Yellow World by Albert Espinosa.
Life is about following that inner bliss into a world of a thousand suns – the yellow world – where we run free and uninhibited in unlimited possibilities. That’s our wish and prayer for all our friends. Thanks for all the support.
The game is far from over. Watch this space.
