"bank robber" is a bit generic, dontcha think?
Reply
:iconjuunilee:
JuuniLee Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013   Writer
The answer is YES.
It is meant to be a generic word.
Thereby leaving the writer with enough room to creatively expand on the word. We did not want the writing to be forced or constrictive.

the rules sounded clear enough on this, but I just wanted to be sure... you say only the concept of the keyword (bankrobber) has to be in the story. So, if it has someone mentioning to a friend "on the way here I passed by the cops chasing a bankrobber... so hows' your day been?" and it's never mentioned again throughout the whole story, that's acceptable?
Reply
:iconjuunilee:
JuuniLee Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013   Writer
Yes it's acceptable. How it would fare among the other more creative entries remain to be seen. The contest is more about what comes to your mind when you hear the word bank robbery. Do you envision your character as the criminal? As the cop? Or perhaps the victim?

Your story should be about what the word bank robber creates in your mind and the story behind it. A story that merely mentions the word bank robber is acceptable, though a story that somehow involves a bank robbery would be a more appropriate entry.

That being said, your story does not need to include an actual robbery.

For example, the movie Reservoir Dogs is about a bank robbery gone wrong in which the bank robbery is never featured. It entirely consist of dialogue between the criminals, with few action sequences.

Bottom line use the key word as creatively as possible.
