Welcome to the Middle Earth Diary Contest:

Just a few simple room rules…



1. Must be your own work from start to finish

2. Prizes will be given to the top three diaries.

3. All stories must be in the diary form.

4. Have fun!

5. Lastly you may use existing characters from Middle Earth, such as Frodo, but you need to come up with your own characters. You must use your own character as the main protagonist.
Example: Frodo's long lost daughter or Bilbo's wife or something...or even you could write about years after or before the last war.


Prizes! The Prizes will be updated with new winners badges just as soon as I, [Lady of Lore] create some new ones.

2006-08-18 [Lady of Lore]: well it's only a work in progress but i suppose it will give you something to look at. ^_^ got carried away while i was typing and added the third entry ^^ and finished the second.

2006-12-03 [dayah]: halfling so its about the hobbits then?

2006-12-03 [Hobbit teen]: yeah pretty much<img:img/mood/44166_1164144932.gif>

2006-12-05 [Lady of Lore]: ^^ I need to update.....will do asap

2006-12-06 [Hobbit teen]: kk thanx<img:45154_1117568632.gif>

2007-01-02 [Elwyne]: ok, perhaps you're familiar with my character's history a bit. It's in her bio Bard Elwyne Verahs. Would it be alright if I used her diary at a time when she first found the shire? Although none of the characters will be the same as when the books were. It'll be a bit later... or maybe earlier, but I don't want to borrow the characters from the books directly.

2007-01-02 [Hobbit teen]: yeah that is just fine as long as it is some sort of a halfling's diary it is just as good! thank you for participating^^

2007-01-04 [Elwyne]: no prob! I'm someone who likes being a hobbit, I couldn't miss the oppurtunity to... shall we say... "let the world know"?

2007-01-06 [Hobbit teen]: yeah glad to hear that^^

2007-04-27 [Death's Die-Ary]: *runs around crying*

2007-04-28 [Elwyne]: I put mine on, but it's not finished yet.

2007-05-09 [Hobbit teen]: kk that is alright...the contest doesn't close untill every contest diary entry is finished and we reach the number of people.

2007-05-14 [Elwyne]: what do you think so far?

2007-05-25 [Hobbit teen]: luv it!!

2007-06-09 [Elwyne]: I'm glad!

2007-06-13 [Hobbit teen]: yeah^^

2007-06-19 [Lady of Lore]: Alright, I've finally got some time, I will update this week! ^_^

2007-08-09 [Elwyne]: <img:44166_1164145221.gif>

2009-04-25 [Linderel]: *prods* Any life here? I'd like to know the situation with this contest so that I know whether to leave it up on Writing Contests as an active one or not.

2009-04-26 [Elwyne]: I put mine up, but I'm not quite finished with it.

2009-04-26 [Linderel]: Yes, well, the host hasn't been around in well over 200 days.

2009-04-26 [Lady of Lore]: Well if they don't come back I can run it in the mean time. I don't mind ^_^

2009-04-26 [Linderel]: I have e-mailed her about the matter, I'll wait until Thursday and if I haven't heard back from her by then, it's all yours.

2009-04-26 [Lady of Lore]: Sounds good. Thanks!

2009-05-05 [Linderel]: Already next week. There has been no reply, so you are free to run this.

2009-05-06 [Lady of Lore]: Alright, I shall assume command *salutes*

2009-05-06 [Elwyne]: Nice! Lady of Lore is always good at this sort of thing... (wishing I was)

2009-05-06 [Elwyne]: Ummm... if you don't mind my pointing out things... you misspelled "due" as "die" as in "die to inactivity" And you forgot the backslash on your center align and sizing. Hope you don't mind the pointing out, you can ignore me if you want to.

2009-05-06 [Lady of Lore]: lol, I noticed. I think I fixeded them now ^_^

2009-05-06 [Lady of Lore]: Still under some construction but it will be nice when I'm finished ^_^

2009-05-06 [Elwyne]: You did! It looks good to me, but I'm not very good at making things fancy looking.

2009-05-06 [Linderel]: Lady, as you are a participant yourself, you will need at least one other judge to make sure that the process is as objective as possible. That, or drop out as an entrant.

2009-05-07 [Lady of Lore]: Righto, I was going to move my entry to the example position. Thanks for the reminder ^_^

2009-05-07 [Lady of Lore]: I think I have to change the name of the page to match the new name of the contest but I will link it here in case people get lost. :P

2009-05-07 [Linderel]: Remember to update Writing Contests.

2009-05-08 [Elwyne]: (sigh) Now I'm the only contestant. I feel lonely up there!

2009-05-08 [Lady of Lore]: Lol, don't worry. I'll find us some participants. And Linderel, thanks! I'll be sure to update the contests page as well.

(Sorry I haven't totally polished this up yet, my college graduation is next week and I gotta pack all my stuffs before they kick me out of the dorms in 9 days :P)

2009-05-08 [Elwyne]: sokay with me, I've been waiting this long, I can wait a bit longer. (grin)

2009-05-08 [Lady of Lore]: Lol ^_^

2009-09-08 [Yume Youki]: Umm, can you put up the wiki even if it isn't finished yet (or you haven't even started)? Just so long as you DO finish it?

2009-10-03 [Lady of Lore]: Yes, absolutely! ^_^

2009-10-03 [Yume Youki]: Also, does it matter how long it is? And do I have to use a wiki, or can I use my own actual elftown diary? (It be kind of cool to write a story like this in my diary...)

I don't mean to be a bother, but I'm really interested in this, and want to put something up....

but I don't want to do something wrong and look like an idiot, so the questions are kind of necessary...

2009-10-14 [Elwyne]: yay! another contestant!

2009-10-14 [Yume Youki]: Yep. Now sensei is no longer the halfling diary loner! XD

You has friends! :D

2009-10-16 [Elwyne]: Yay! <img:44166_1164145221.gif> Although I really should actually finish... I can't think of how to proceed though... so I guess I have a torn diary at the moment... I'll have to see when I can discover the other pages around somewhere (looks under the chair is sitting on)

2009-10-16 [Lady of Lore]: Hmmmm....interesting idea using your own ET diary. I think if there was a way you could make a link for each "entry" so that I don't have to dig through your diary :P to find it, its fine with me ^_^

2009-10-16 [Yume Youki]: Hmmm...
That would probably make it a bit complicated... I'll just use the wiki I made. :)

2010-01-02 [Eyden13]: Are you still taking submissions?

2010-01-07 [Lady of Lore]: Yup :)

2010-01-07 [Eyden13]: Yay!

2010-03-14 [Hobbit teen]: awesome :)
