when cutting an interp can you take from more than 1 chapter in a book?

one more question...when naming the title of the piece do you have to use the book name if you are doing only a chapter?

or can u use the chapter title?

I really am asking a lot of n00b questions...haha.

Yes, you need the book and author. You can say something like, "Blips, taken from The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, by Patrick F. McManus," though, if the book title really has nothing to do with your piece.

ohhh...duhh. I got those things confused in my mind. Thanks a lot.

Another question.... because this rule is sooo confusing and vague.

Rule: Sound effects may only be used if they are not recognizable words found in a published non-internet- sourced dictionary, and if they are motivated by the selection of literature. The use of onomatopoeia added for sound effect is not allowed.

so this means that like...you can't scream...even if motivated by literature? Can't most sounds be considered onomatopoeia? what about stomping on the floor to imitate a door knock...would that be considered a sound effect?

Knocking on the floor, screaming, clicking your tongue, clapping your hands, snapping your fingers, whistling, etcetera are all fine. The rule is just trying to eliminate people saying, "Knock knock," "Noooo!" "Click," "Snap," and so on. It means you can't use actual words that are based on sounds; you can make the sounds themselves, though.

That depends on the book. For instance, if you were doing a multi-chapter book, like The Phantom Tollbooth, you could take from where ever in the book you want. If you doing a multi-story book, like The Jungle Book, then you can only take from one individual story. Same for compilations of stories, like The Book of Virtues.


I thought it was whatever is contained in a book with an ISBN? :(

What about an intense gasping for breath sound? (Think of somebody dying and in a ton of pain....) Technically, it could be written out as, "Uuuuuhhhh" or something.

Because asking questions here is way more fun than going and looking at NCFCA's rules...

You are allowed to use chapter titles of books as title right?

for example,

Riddles in the Dark,

By Jrr. Tolkien

or would it be

Riddles in the dark,
taken from The Hobbit
by J.r.r. Tolkien...

or can you not do that at all?

I think...I don't know if this is really a written rule anyways. I do know you can use part of the main title, though.

I am working on an IO explaining how capitalism works... I have the speech pretty much written, but figuring out the boards and visual aids is proving to be difficult. Suggestions anyone?

I would definitely go with the second format. It is stated in the rules that the title of the selection of literature must be stated; they don't define "selection" very well, but it is clearly implied that "selection" means the entire book unless said book is the Bible or a collection of stories, in which case only one book or story may be used as a selection.

Dude, NCFCA is confusing.

Now, know that I don't do IO, and have only seen a couple... but maybe some sort of diagram that shows how people start a business, sell stuff, make money... [ok, that sounds cheesy... but something like that depending on what you're talking about]. Like a little cause and effect circle chart.

yeah, I was kinda thinking about using a Monopoly board to explain how the actual process works. Does that sound like a good/plausible idea or... yeah, cheesy?
lol, this is my first year in IO.... it has caused me to realize my inartisticness (yes, this is a new word ;-))

I'm cutting my siblings' duo for a tournament that's in like days. And I've hit that spot where you start cutting individual words and then realize that you've just destroyed the character's personality...

Help, please? My email is veronica.bumblebee at gmail.

hello people! I just got done writing my first speech ever and have no idea whether it's any good or not.. I mostly wrote it for fun on something i really enjoy at the moment, being the topic of a Christian worldviews. It's a persuasive on the importance of establishing a Christian WV as opposed to accepting society's claim that there is not biblical morality. If anyone has the time to help me out i'd greatly appreciate any advice, recommendations, or tips, because I really am a newbie when it comes to anything other than debate :)

email me at d3cubed@gmail.com if you can help!

HopeExists, I'd be happy to help. :) My email is veronica.bumblebee at gmail.

Actually, guys, I really enjoy critiquing/cutting/editing speeches, so go ahead and email me about speeches any time. I don't check HSD particularly regularly unless I'm playing a game, so you're more likely to get a response that way.

@Bee: awesome, I'll probably send you my bio. If anyone else wants to look at it, that'd be great. It's not done yet, but soon. :)

I'd like feedback on a pers unoriginally entitled, "When We Become the Enemy: The US Covert Drone Programs."

(It was originally called, "Baby, you're a firework/Come on, let your colors burst," but I was unsure of the wisdom of leaving that on the final version.)
