One more of these and then we'll do a reading contest which I think is going to be a lot of fun.

Deadline: 12:01am EST March 6th

Limits: At least 500 words, no maximum.

Subject: Transportation. This can mean planes, trains, automobiles, skates, skis, roller blades, ass ... whatever you can think of. There just have to be some form of transportation utilized in the story by one of the main characters.

Prize: To be determined by how many people enter. (Richcelt will be able to give you feedback on his prize probably by this Monday.)

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.

Quoted for truth.

I'm in. One of the two short stories I had floating in my head fits this perfectly... well, they both fit, but the one better than the other, and it's shorter too.

Copper, BRING IT ON!!!

:angel: It's just a fact of life that looks and boobs will get you further than intelligence. Oh and PIE. Yeah...the PIE too. I make good PIE.

Dex...have I ever told you how good my PIE is? :flirt:


EDIT...man, I SWEAR, I didn't intend for that to be sexual

Hmmmm. I just reread the thread and you do come across as pretty crazy. Hopefully it will be more Joon than Sylvia Plath.

Maybe I'll try this. I probably won't post it, at least not publicly (super intimidating) but my creative writing skills are extremely lacking compared to news writing, and I could use the exercise.
