...So, all submissions are entered
as a reply to this thread?

Is that correct?


Hi Wild,
I think Lucid summed it up well in the post above.

Your entry should have it's own thread within this (Short Stories) forum.
The title of your entry should have [TRA2018] added to it (so we know that it's an official entry).
Once your thread is up, add a post here to let us know but remember to include a link back to your own entry.
(If you look at the top of your story post, you'll find a "link" pin... Right click on that and you can copy the link location ready to paste into your post here.)

If you run into any problems - fire me a pm and I'll sort it out for you.

regards
G

It never occurred to me that new writers might need detailed instructions...

Thank You my friend Shep.

Anything that makes it easier for members to enter is a very good thing.

I am in your debt.

Someday, Mrs. Shepherd, the Shepherditos, and I intend to visit your fair country. Share a wee dram with me and we’ll call it even!

I just might have a bottle which... might be... "suitable" for that very occasion!

Anytime.

Thanks for all of the great story entries so far folks - I have read almost every one, and I think that at least two or three of them are outstanding!

I'm going to be AWOL now for a few days - I won't be anywhere near an Internet connection until Sunday/Monday - YAY! LOL

If there are any questions or problems while I'm away, you can bring it to the attention of our fantastic mods
tothetenthpower or DontTreadOnMe

cheers!

I've found that I have some of my most creative moments when I'm half-asleep.

Good to see you entering this contest, Blue!

Thanks for the supportive comments and the new entries, everyone!

I'm now back from my long weekend away... and it was just great!

Inspired by some of the great story entries here - I have taken the liberty of writing a wee tribute piece of my own... (not an official entry):

LINK to The FUTURE. Here

cheers!

Whew! I think I managed to read them all today!
(more fun than work, for sure) They were all fabulous and creative and I apologize for not being able to pick a favorite.
Thanks everyone for your efforts and good luck!
