You are well aware of the process...
It has been several days since you have known whats expected of you...
The invitation from Gordi for you to decide is just a convenient excuse...
Seeing as its a monthly contest why not restrict it within that timeframe?

Actually, no, I waited for him to be ready. But I may just sit on it a little longer now. I'm having writer's c-block.

Folks, I'm going to suggest taking a short break from the contests for the Month of February.
We shall re-convene with a March contest, for which our current winner AugustusMasonicus will choose the theme.

kindest regards,
Gordi

Is that when you get back out again?

That all depends on whether I shank anyone else or not.

It'd make a good story though...

I am sure any story about me in prison would be well received by the membership.

Hi buddha,
Please don't give up after one contest. A lot of us had to enter a few times before we won and received 'writer status'. Some great writers here still haven't won any contests, but their stories are great.

It helps to let your friends know that you've entered a story into a contest here, and maybe ask them to go check it out. Unfortunately if your story doesn't get much activity it disappears from the "recent" page, and then others might not see it.

If you don't really know many members here, maybe send a private message to a member with 'writer status' (someone whose writing style you like) and ask them to take a few minutes to read your story. You can message me if you like.

You need to promote your entry a little so that it doesn't get lost in all the threads. If no one sees it, then you won't get ratings (stars & flags) and then you won't win. It's not a reflection of your talent at all.

I've been away from this site for almost a year, so I haven't really read much of the fiction. But I should be around more often now. The other writer members here are very supportive, so please don't be shy about introducing yourself.
Don't stop writing!

Don't listen to her!

I sent her one story to proof read and she was all like, 'Change that sentence to: Dah kat runned away froms the dawg'.

She even told me to write it in crayon. How do you think she got her writer status on that contest?

Well yeah...that's called "sabotage"! You really think I'm gonna help you beat me?

Actually, I just told Bill to change the status since the paychecks come from Grand Lodge.

Well, rank has its privileges.


Don't worry about the other poster, it would appear they were playing with you since they never had a thread in the Short Story forum.

Seriously? I'm such a sap.
Trying to do my good deed for the day, help support a newbie writer...tsk, tsk...

He really lets you call him "Bill"? I'm sorry, I'm a little upset.
He makes me call him "Sir".

It's kinda common knowledge by now.

You should see the cush office we gave him at Langley.
