I love this month's prompt, guys!

Quote:
What did they do throughout the war?

by 'they', is it referring to the correspondent or the side they chose?

so I won't be penalised if my entry focuses more on my character's routine as a war correspondent or something instead of the events of whichever side they're covering?

apologies if the answer is obvious. just want to make sure my entry won't be missing any requirements of the contest.

This is the prompt
Quote:
Write a story about one of the sides of the Battle of Hogwarts, as a war correspondent.



The questions are more guidelines to help you. As long as your story fits the prompt it will be accepted

I am rather confused about this prompt.
What do you mean about 'correspondent'? I search the word and it has two meanings.
: somewhat formal : someone who writes letters or e-mails to another person
: a person whose job is to send news to a newspaper, radio station, or television program often from different places around the world
Is it the second one? (Sorry English isn't my first language)
And can I use OCs?
Tag me please.

@Cobalt-Silver-Foster

The key word this month is 'war correspondent', which is a specific occupation:
Quote: war correspondent
a journalist who covers stories firsthand from a war zone.

You can also read more about this occupation on wikipedia. Hope that helps!

And, yes, OCs are allowed.

Thanks, @Vievelynn
I think I understand now about the war correspondent thingy.
Though the link didn't work (wasn't your fault, was the stupid firewall.)

Oops. Sorry about that. I didn't check to see which country you're in, and whether wikipedia works there.

So I wanted to make sure,
Can I write about events leading to the Battle? Yes or no
Can I write a blurb for it? If I can, will it count towards the total word count?
Tag me please. (Please don't be vague about it)

@Cobalt-Silver-Foster

You can write about events leading to the battle, as long as the prompt is satisfied. You may also write a blurb, if you wish. But everything you write counts toward the word count.

Can I write about one specific character? Or does it have to be a side in particular?

Yes, it can be about a specific character but we need to be able to understand which side they are fighting for.

Yes, as long as the prompt is met
