LET'S HAVE A SHORT STORY WRITING CONTEST

PLEASE -- Do not respond to this thread. Send questions to me as a PM.

PLEASE -- Do not post your story here. Send it to me as a PM.

So what is the contest?????????

I am going to post a line which you must incorporate into a short story. It can be anything from a paragraph to a type written page in length. The key, as I already stated, is that you incorporate the "Story Line" into your story.

Once you have written it, send it to me as a PM. I will collect them over the next few days...let's say Sunday night. I will assemble them into one or two posts stringing the stories together without your name attached.

People can then read the stories and vote for their favorite story by posting their choice after the stories. The winner will be deeded with providing the next story line. The cycle, as long as people enjoy it, can repeat from there.

And NO, the winner will not have to administer the next contest. I will do that. All the winner needs to do is provide the next story line.

The next post is the story line you must use for Contest 1.

To clarify a couple questions...

You MUST use the line somewhere in the story. It doesn't matter where, just that you use it.

Allena won ... Tuzilla has said Allena can chose the line for the next short story. Here it is:

"... And thus I served my friend." (Put a comma anywhere you wish)
