Well once I saw that this was about dragons, I immediately knew what I had to do:

That is my entry, as a writer status entry. Kinda sad, but a dragon tale nonetheless.

I knew we had a lot of dragon lovers here. It was hard to keep quiet about it. LOL
I will be reading each and every story. I seem to have writers block at the moment so I'll leave it to the rest of you.

Good luck everyone!

Dragons, you say? Hmm...that's a tough call! I want to enter this one though so I'll have a think.

With the folks on ATS, Dragons is bound to get some amazing stories. I think fantasy and sci fi is kind of a staple, bread-n-butter thing for most members here.

In my life I can't tell you how many dragons I have slayed while holding my D20 firmly in hand. The first big box set i ever shelled out cash for was:

We spent a full day killing kobolds while ascending the mountain.

How delightfully droll!

Can we write about Dungeons and Dragons?

Perhaps I will enter if I can come up with something worth reading if not, I'm sure gonna enjoy reading!

Playing d&d 5th edition, Hoard of the Dragon Queen.

I too may be making a story contribution as I have great affinity for these marvelous mythical creatures.

Hi, here's the link to my story: "A Letter From A Dragon".

I saw somewhere "winner's announced" so I first thought it was over, but it seems the competition for the topic has just begun.

Well, as long as my story just entertains a little, I'm quite happy.

This one's got Pulitzer written all over it...

Here you go, another tale from a non-writer.

[DRG2015] The Great Wyrm Approaches

Enjoy the twist


PS: No Syx, you didn't make an appearance in this one.

Ohhh, dragons. And just right after I watched the 1 season they have of Surface on Netflix. The synchronization is delicious!

With a month to go, I most definitely plan to whip up a story as short as I can make it. I'll be back with a link soon to the first part of the story.
