Contest threadWow...this actually piques my interest. After all, nothing in this says this has to be good writing.
Discuss and stuff!
I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but yeah, focus will be more on innovation that quality. With that said, a good writing that is also innovative will most likely win by a long shot. Maybe we'll have a "Most Innovative" award, who knows?

Are we allowed to write it in script format? Not like I'm going to, just weighing my options.
Yes! You don't even have to stick to any conventions. Invent your own genre if you're that creative! As I mentioned before, you could literally tell a story in the form of a power point presentation (splitting it into these "slides" with a man explaining maybe? That sounds boring, but that depends on how *you* write it) or maybe you can tell the most fantastic, fiction story using language commonly found in scientific journals.
I just had this idea. Someone could submit a story, written in correct programming syntax, such that it would actually run when compiled, but at the same time, it could tell a story that would be easy to follow for a non-programmer. (I'll pretend I never said this idea)
Also, palindromes are fun. Maybe the letters and words wouldn't be the palindrome, maybe the events of the story are the palindrome! A cyclic story? Food for thought!
