Let's make that Only 1000 words!

Post by Xtc »

If there is sufficient interest, there will be a short story contest for tales of 1000 words or less.
If you are interested, send @Xtc a pm containing only the words, "You got that number wrong!"

As soon as there are at least ten expressions of interest, the rules and the topic will be posted.

BUMP!!
There is currently insufficient take-up to stage a contest.

I shall leave the invitation up for another week before calling it off.

If sufficient interested participants send a pm to Xtc saying
"You got that number wrong"
The subject and the rules will be posted immediately.

THE COMPETITION WILL TAKE PLACE


As long as the promised entries and, hopefully more, are received within the stated dates, we shall award first, second, and third places. The users can, if they wish, be identified as “Contest Winners” in their rankings. (Unless @cj2125 wins again, in which case we shall simply shoot him!)

Rules:
1) All stories must be suitable for all.
2) There is an upper limit of 1000 words which includes the title and any explanations and excuses. (Be fair, the judges have a life to live!)
3) All entries must be posted as replies to this thread between 30th November and 7th December inclusive. Early posts will be disqualified.
4) All judges’ decisions might well be arbitrary, biased and wrong but will be final. NB. Xtc will reserve his opinion until all judges have reported in case a casting vote is required.


This contest’s topic:
“Well, I know better now!”

Good luck and please have a go.
