My name is Mike and I am currently completing a Bachelors of Arts degree, majoring in English and creative writing at Murdoch University. I have one semester to go. Next year I intend to write a science fiction Novella as an honours project.
I will be combining a couple of things I love in this story and one of them is 'sport'. As a frugal uni student, I am hoping to tempt a couple of creative people with a small cash prize (if I could spare more I would) and if you win, I will somehow manage to give you a shoutout inside my story.
So imagine this: The year is 2301 (281 years into the future) and the biggest game on the planet is 'ONE BALL'. It is a 12 team competition with 12 custom cyborg players per team. Each team plays each other once, and a final series follows that. There are ten players on the field simultaneously, each 3 - 4 metres in height. They play in a stadium that surrounds a playing field that is oval-shaped and 1.3kms from East to West, and 1.1km North to South. It needs to sit 1 million spectators in individual seats, which have complete 360-degree movability.
There are two main grandstands, the West, which has 8 stories and the East which has 4. There is seating all around the stadium. The two opposite grandstands are shaped like to giant cresting waves about to hit each other.
I have a spreadsheet with what I think the dimensions are if you want to take a crack at it. I will send a link if requested. I am looking for conceptual and if my book ever gets published, I will use the image as my cover and give you artistic credit for it.
I can't promise it will ever become a seller, but I am gonna give it a go.
