I have a flash that could become the heart of a longer story with a bit of work. A lot of work. A huge amount of work. But I'm up for it. Love this contest! Best on the web, without a doubt.

Finished my story and need to really go over it so that is shines in a dull, glossy black way.  Here's hoping it doesn't suck!   :hidin:

I have two stories I'm debating on.  One I wrote over the course of the past two days, and another I wrote some time ago.  I torn on which one to submit.

Look for my debut novel THROUGH THE IN BETWEEN, HELL AWAITS in 2012 from Grand Mal Press.

Two entries to date, with a month until deadline :afro:

I'm hoping I'll have time to write/finish a story specifically for this, otherwise I might have to enter an older one...but it's still really good  :grin:

My second tale aimed specifically at the comp came in at 4k...(first one was 5k so I'm getting closer!). I have an idea for another tale if I can figure out how to make it a little more dramatic. Still hoping to be there at the weigh-in.

I'm on my third attempt, too! First two were under the word limit, but my mother tells me they're sh@%. (very politely, of course. For her.)

Have hope for the third. :afro:

Only six entries to date, so there's still time to get in early to avoid the pitfalls of reader fatigue :afro:

After a week of hanging out with my dad in the hospital I can finally get back on the writing train.  Wheee!

I hate hospitals. Must be even worse being there if you actually have to be there. Good result, though, I hope :smiley:
