September - October SS
Turnout for the previous contest was abysmal so please please please get something in for the Sept - Oct contest fellas! It's not a contest if nobody participates! I'm going to put this up super early so that everybody has a lot of time to work with.
About the theme ... I really liked the theme of secrecy in The Malingerer & wouldn't mind reading something similar so I therefore decided that the theme for this round is going to be ... *drum roll*
Skeletons In The Closet
Min word count for stories is same as last time, 2500 words. Max word count is ~10K.
Have fun! :rolleyes:
The wheels are turning in my head. . . I think I can work with this.
BTW, what's the deadline?
I'm afraid The End anthology is pulling folks away, and I've been busy with work, so haven't had time to write. I still have tons of work this month, but I'll try to squeeze in a story. Great theme, by the way.
Idea taking hold...must remain less ambitious...plotting out sequence of scenes...
I really need to get back on this wagon, been focusing too much on the flash. And this is sparking all kinds of ideas...
I remember these. Oh how I miss them. Last one I wrote, I sold (many a year ago). I may participate, but what I write might get sent off to see if I can sell it.
Glad to see these have kept going.
Howdy JR, I hope you do participate. We created the Stories Sub-forum just for that reason. Since it is accessible to members-only, there's less of a chance of an editor calling it "published" (as opposed to publishing it on the Stories section of this site).

Anyway, would be good to see some fresh blood, oh, I mean, a new author to read. :)
I will see what I can come up with. I also need to do something for the flash fiction as well. :)
This sparked a really fun idea in my head. Looking forward to delving into it.
what kind of writing to write of this forum..?:)
What's the deadline date?
As usual, I will most likely fail but it's worth a crack. I think I might actually write about an actual skeleton in a closet ...
I have such a wicked idea! I do hope I get some time to knock it out.

Problem with submitting
Hey guys. For some reason it says my story can't be posted to the story sub-forum because the text is to long 36947 characters and it want's me to reduce it to 20000. How can I even post my story?
