Scoring will be split between categories, by numbers.

20 points - Word Usage (Counts for number of words as well as how well the words are used)
20 points - Style (How well-suited the style of writing is, compared to the topic and the short amount of time participants have to write)
20 points - Organization (How well thoughts and plot twists and the like are organized; how good the flow of the story is)
10 points - Relation to topic (The closer the story sticks to the topic, the higher the points.)
10 points - Completion (For if the story is finished. Points are lowered for missing plot points, and any other part of a story that seems missing. 0 points if story is incomplete.)

Copyright Junk: Nearly everything here is (C) 1999 Me. Some other stuff, such as the PE logo by DarkBorg, are obviously not mine. Failure to understand this will result in a loss for the Bears... which'll most likely happen anyways. If you take stuff, you suck muchly... but there's not much I can do about it. Except sue your ass off. So I suggest you stay away.
