OK folks, I believe that it's time for our next Short Story Writers Contest!

This time around, our previous winner AugustusMasonicus has chosen the theme:


"Your Journey to the Afterlife"

So, all Short Story Entries for this contest must contain or relate to that theme.
How you do that is, of course, up to You!

Video and Audio (spoken word) submissions are not acceptable this time around.
Photos and BBcode Editing most certainly are allowed.


Rules Of Entry

The contest will run from NOW to Thurs 23rd March 2017.
(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 [YJA2017] in the title.

All entries must be linked in this thread, and please 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!

Also, please END your submission with "THE END" so that everyone is clear that your entry is complete.

1 Single Story Submission is 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.



So, have at it! and HAVE FUN!

Any questions? Just ask AugustusMasonicus or myself and we'll do our best to help!
The very Best Of luck to all of our writers, new and old!

Thank you Gordi and Augustus!!

I can't wait to start reading the entries.
Please everybody, don't forget to support the non-writers as 2 of them will win shiny new titles (and to some of us writer dorks, that's a big deal!!)

Is it within the rules to make a sequel or continuation of an older original story?

Why thank you!
However, with my luck if I die I'd likely be met by a dude in a toga and another in a kilt.

Hi jiminy,
So long as it is your own original work... I don't see a problem with that...
So, yes... please do!

Sweet. I guess it's time to pretend that I am a writer.

Fake it till you make it right?

Hey! I read your posts around here and you ARE a writer, so please don't sell yourself short!
Just do it!!

I can't believe I've almost finished mine, had no idea what direction I was going at first. It literally wrote itself.
Just open notepad or something and write. I think you might be rather happy with what you can create!
