WRITE A SHORT STORY -- A CONTEST

Okay, I will try this one more time. If we can get enough submissions, then I will try to keep it going.

RULES:

1. Write a short story from the phrase listed below. The entire story must fit in a single PM window. Send it to me in as a PM. I will collect them and post them for voting the first part of next week.

Once posted, please read them and vote for your favorite by posting a vote at the bottom of the story thread. The winner will then provide the phrase for the next round.

Here is the phrase. I know you may have seen or heard it before, but break it up and/or punctuate it anyway you like.

And I would've gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for you snoopin' kids!

I think it offer a wealth of creative license. We have a lot of masterminds in this place.

Arggh, I want to but it would really matter when the deadline is. I love my s/o, but we just moved and I think she would jump down my throat if I ignored this unpacking!!! So when is the deadline, do we have a full week?

I resemble that remark.

I'll try to crank one out, althought I'm not sure which is more difficult for me, incorporating the theme line or limiting my story to the length of one PM.

They both sound difficult to me. That's a tough line to incorporate and still get the audience to take it seriously after hearing it so many times.

My offering is sent.
Having a small bonfire with the leftovers. 2500 characters (the limit of a PM) seems to be around 400-450 words. It takes me that long to write the names!

The deadline is 11:59 PM Sept. 19, 2009. The number of entries is thus far samll. We need more, if this is to move forward.

Short stories are small, aren't they?

Hey, Tuzilla, is there any chance of extending the competition deadline by a few days? I haven't been well this week and would really like to enter the competition. I fully understand if that's a problem.

No, considering the dearth of stories. Let's move it to Sunday night, September 20th.

REMEMBER...keep them to one PM box in length maximum.
