See the little push pin at the top of your posts?

Click on it. It will put the link in your URL bar.

Copy the link. Then come to this page and insert it in your post above using the "insert a link" button at the top of the text box (it's the square with an arrow pointing out of it).

'Course, that's cya I think writing is the most wonderful thing, and don't want to only imagine what you could come up with

I was just being a needle. I'm no good at writing fiction anyways. Besides, truth is stranger and stranger than fiction the further we go........

Is it okay if my story goes up to two posts? I have a story in mind and I can't post the whole thing without having it broken down in two posts

Enjoy. Things have been somewhat dark in my world lately. Maybe this reflects that.

Hi star - yes it's absolutely fine to break it down to two (or more) posts as lucid has indicated. (Thanks lucid!)

Here are the relevant sections from the OP for clarification!


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!



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.



Cheers!
