Sounds fun!

What if someone works on a vernacular translation of an existing text corresponding to your call, of which other English translations of translations are widely available already, albeit censored, inveigled and obfuscated by all sorts of editors?

What if someone had invested much in that effort and submitted it for publication on the website you moderate in exchange for say, a permanent seven million point way above top secret score rather than applause and title, leaving the original six winners their rightful prize?

It would need to be an original short story, written by the member who submits it in order to be a part of the contest.

Hi tenth. I started an Origins tale but was wondering if We can submit a previuosly written Story?
I have one that would probably fit the bill for this contest.
I would probably add some to it, make a few changes, etc...
Please Let Me know at Your next convenience.

Thanx in advance, Syx...

I had a question I didn't see anywhere...

What if you submit a story, then a week later want to add to it. Is that allowed or would that be considered two versions, as in two entries? Wait, now that I think about it, that probably wouldn't work. What if someone gave a s&f and then didn't like it as much after you changed it? All the same, is there an official policy on that?

Thanks,

~Vroom

Hi vroom,
You are indeed allowed two or more posts for the one story entry.
They can be a week apart if you like (so long as it still falls within the dates of the contest!)
BUT - you only get half points for stars on additional story posts.
cheers!
