Hello Writers!

Time for a September Contest! This time around we are doing Summer's End. Let's write a story about a magical summer, or a terrible one for that matter. I've always liked those coming of age stories or summer tragedy stories and I figured a good way to kick off our new series.

Video and spoken word submissions are not acceptable. Photos and BBcode Editing are most certainly allowed however.

Rules Of Entry

The contest will run from NOW to Friday September 30th 2016.
(Any submissions after that date will be disqualified.)

A period of ONE WEEK after the closing of the contest will be provided for voting.

All T&C's Apply.

All entries MUST include [SEWC] in the title.

All entries must be linked in this thread, and you must include [writer] or [non-writer] in your submission post within this thread.

There is no minimum or maximum character count, and the entry can be submitted over one or more posts, but please bear in mind that it is a SHORT STORY contest!

1 Single Story Submission are allowed Per Member.

There will be 3 winners among members who already have "Writer" status, prizes as follows:

1st Place -- 5 Applause, and selection of the next contest theme
2nd Place -- 3 Applause
3rd Place -- 1 Applause

There will also be 3 winners from the non-writer category who will receive the following:

1st Place -- 3 Applause & Writer Status
2nd Place -- 2 Applause & Writer Status
3rd Place -- 2 Applause

Scoring

Flags will be worth 2 points each.
Stars will be worth 1 point each.
*Stars for subsequent posts (ie. additions to the story after the initial story post) will be worth .5 stars.

Ok, so I did this in the format of a play. And it has been awhile since I have read any plays (and thus the way they are written), so I apologize for any formatting issues right away. Also if play format is not allowed, I also apologize, but ask you to please read and provide feedback.

My entree is only scene 1 from Act I. And I have yet to decide if I shall finish the play, but here it is:

Program 40
