I wasn't going to do another, but I just heard about the death of Pete Shelley and felt I had to.

Dang there's a lot of talent here.

I probably don't have the patience to write a long one, but please have another short one sometime next year!

These are awesome.

Good subject. I like the word-count limit for this one. Makes it more of a challenge.


Anyway, my entry is Your Life.

I hope the required "The End" does not count as part of the 50 words.


Just a note: I'm entering for the joy of it. I'm not really eleigible to win anything as Staff can't receive applause anyway.

Man Gordi, you really have your work cut out for you!

I wonder if there is an impartial observer who could help you with the count?

Thanks again for inspiring so much creativity with your threads.

You're very welcome zos - creativity and participation is what it's all about!
(I actually just plug all of the figures into my specially created spreadsheet and it works out all the totals for me, so it's not tooooo much work, and it's worth it to see all of this talent on show!)

Thanks again,
G

PS - Huge thanks to all of the entrants, newcomers and regulars alike - It's great to see the contest so busy already.
