I'm starting to get a mild feeling of panic about this year's comp.  Sad The third story written specifically for the comp came in at almost 4k. I wasn't that happy with it anyway (unlike the first two, both of which I was delighted with - but they were 5k and 4k respectively). To make # 3 work I reckon I'd have to add to it, not cut. But as luck would have it I've lucked into a story that I'm having a ball writing and may well turn out to be one of my best ever. Alas, I'm already at 2.2 words (all written today) and not even a third of the way through. Going to crack on with this one and keep on hoping for even more inspiration for #5  huh

Minor setback for me, but I will have to you soon. The wife spotted a hole in the story. Will be interesting to hear everyone's thoughts on this one. That is my favorite part, although getting a vote is always fun, too.  bleh

So whatever you got Ed, add 1. That's 1 higher!

Could I use a story I posted on another message board as part of a writing club? It will be changed somewhat.

You would have to ask the guys at One Buck to be sure, but my guess would be as long as it's all your own work, and it was a small, password protected forum where guests could not view your work, then it would probably be okay.

Mine is sitting at 2k as of today. Should hopefully have the first draft done in a few more days.

Still only have fourteen entries as of today's date, so it's looking a bit bleak with less than two weeks left to run. I would hope to have twice that number by now undecided

You say that every year Ed. There'll be plenty of stories. Stop worrying!

I'm sure you will get several more entries. I just did another round of pimping, so hopefully that helps, too.

Yeah, you're right -- I've just checked, and this time last year we had seventeen entries, so we're only a few adrift.

Mine'll be a last minute entry, not because I'm still writing it, but because I'm hoping to write it  Cheesy but I do have a refined, short one ready just in case the ol' brainbox can't fart anything decent out.

My tale (originally nearly 4k) is now under 3k, but it ain't finished. Scatch, scratch, scratch, scribble, scribble, scribble.

Hi Ed,

I have a story that I'd really like to submit into the contest, but it's at another market right now and I don't know if I will get it back by the end of the month. That market accepts simultaneous submissions, and so does One Buck Horror, so I was wondering if it might be OK to "simulsub" it?
