We've recovered from the holidays (and especially the holiday feasts) so its time once again for a new BC writing challenge. Here are the details:

Deadline: Midnight Feb 2nd

Limits: At least 500 words, no maximum.

Subject: Cheating. This can be adultry, cheating on a school test, cheating at work, cheating on the last Book Club Tournament, or anything else you fancy. :pimp:

Prize: To be determined by how many people enter.

Entry method: Simply post your short story in this forum and a link to it in this post.

If I have time I'll throw my hat in the ring as well. It's been a while since I've done one of these.

So totally there. In. Participating. Writing. Whatever.

You get the point. ^ that's what my whole story will look like. And someone will have to read all of it! Mwahaha.

Edit: I can't spell.

Hey I have a question with a obvious answer but I wnated to be sure, Does it matter what person the story is in? Can it be a mix, I dont know what I'm going to do i was just wondering if there was a certain view you had to use.

I figure that the only guidelines that you need to follow are the ones that are given. Other than that, you're free to do what you want. (That's the way it's been done in the past, at least.)
