J'ohn, for those of us who may not know, what an epigraph is, could you explain?

Oh, wait, I looked it up. :)

Quote

Epigraph
Name
Epigraph -- A short inscription at the beginning of a document or component


So, for those who are too lazy to look it up, here it is!

Actually it was Aurélië who used the term, not I.

She got many brownie points that way. :laugh:

A question: if I have an entry for the Challenge, do I post it in the pinned thread, or in a separate thread with "November Challenge" in the subject line?

You can post it in a separate thread if it is a work in progress and you are looking for critical review, but the final product should be posted in the pinned thread, yes.

Sorry 'bout that, Ta'nernin. :laugh: Epigraphs are found all over the place (Stephen King in particular is especially fond of them) but the word itself really isn't that commonly used. Actually, when I first wrote the challenge idea in my notebook, I goofed and used the word epigram, which is a witty saying à la Oscar Wilde. :)

Aurélië: no problem - just wanted to help clear things up. :)
