The title has now been fixed lucia.

***All entries are also "pinned" at the top of the short story forum to make them easier to find.

HUGE thanks to DTOM for sorting that out!

The topic selected sparked my writing bugaboo, so here is my non-writer submission. Enjoy.

THIS is your ONE WEEK Warning Folks!

There is just ONE WEEK left to get your story submissions in for the "Lifelong Passion" short story contest.

It has been fairly quiet this month... are our writers (and budding writers) away on holiday perhaps?
Pursuing their lifelong passion for adventure maybe? or a lifelong passion for lying on the beach!

Remember, if you're struggling for a story "hook"... It doesn't have to be about relationships... unrequited love could be a lifelong passion I suppose... but so could fixing up old cars or restoring an old boat... caring for animals... creating street-art and graffiti... following a favourite sports team... standing by your wayward spouse?
Conquering the hills and mountains... supporting a charity... investigating UFO's and cryptids... recording the weather... being in (or following) a rock band... working in politics... expanding your business empire.... and so much more... the possibilities are endless!


You have one week left to enter... what are you waiting for?
Just Do It!

The current contest will be closed to new entries in the next day or so.

cheers!

There should just be an option in account settings to request writer status or otherwise.

Im still not even sure how the hell you get that, or if it even matters since these contests are apparently open to everyone,(now?). The in place system seems like a temporary one that hasnt been integrated into the site. Anyways..

Good luck everyone., I look forward to the entries.

I already submitted a story. But I wrote another one. Maybe someone will read it so I will leave it here.

Hi tad,

My understanding is that you have to earn (or be awarded) writer status.

I believe that you can request to be considered for writer status by messaging the ATS staff/mods (or others can nominate you) for your contributions to the writing oriented forums, or you can earn it by placing high in one of the writers contests (like this one!).

Anyone can enter the writers contests - they are indeed open to all ATS members.

cheers!

This Contest is now CLOSED to new entries.
So, any entries after this post won't be included in the contest.

In a slight change from our usual format... there will now be a period of 6 days for reading and voting. (I'm not going to be around in 7 days time to tally the scores!)
So, you now have 6 days (from this post) to read all the entries and vote for your favourite(s).

Votes are cast by awarding a Flag to your favourite story threads and a Star to your favourite story posts as detailed in the OP.


The best of luck to all who have entered.

OK, so the 6 voting days have now come and gone and the contest is officially CLOSED from this point on.
PLEASE don't add any more stars & flags until after the results are announced!


Thank you!
