This is the second post that John Bull put up that I couldn't read. Why?


When someone adds a story I top the story post and then I bump this one so it remains at the top.Bumping looks like I've posted but I haven't.


You don't need "Writer" status to post a short story.

There aren't any strict rules saying that X must be the number of words in the story. But it has to be a short story, I would say not more than 3 pages, with Terrorism or other yellow forums as its subject.

well...I didn't enter the contest because I have no idea what it was about. I'm new
joined 2 days ago sucka. What's this short story competition deal?

And collaborative fiction...what's that about?

How do you become a writer? What's with it? I'm confused! Kind of. Haha! But yeah...I'm a writer, I suck severly, but I try


Oh and GARON-

I LOVE THE PICTURE! t's good to know that somebody out there knows about good old Sherman Austin. Raise the Fist buddy. How'd you hear about him?

I would explain the whole writer/short story/collaborative fiction thing but i suck at explaining things (pretty fuinny....seeing how im a writer. dag!)

*cough* check out my poems.
*cough* Random Ramblings


So, now that the plug is out of the way..to become a write juss ask good ol' John Bull 1 over here..he'll hook you up. the CF forum is just stories that people make up and share...traditionally, a collaborative story is a story that is written by all different members. Like this: One member will start the story, writing a couple paragraphs, and whatnot, and then another member will post and continue the story with their ideas! When it works, it is just simply bliss!

Thats basically the CF forum in a nut-shell. Most of the contests are for ATS points...

Scat posted about it a few weeks ago. I never heard about it until I saw his post. Very sad story indeed. Welcome to the board!

I'm really sorry about this I've been hungover all day and I've had to do some work on my debate.

Please be patient.I have about 4 stories to read and grade and then I can post the results which will be calculated with only two judges scores and doubled to give a score out of 100.

It always amazes me about the quality we get here.It really does make it difficult for judging.Only one entry scored less than 70%.

Anyway the winner is DeusEx (Prices) 92%

Congrats DE that's 5,000 ATS points for you well done


Runner up was a draw between Wordwatcher, Lights, Camera, Action!!, and DeusEx again with untitled on 86%.So the remaining 5,000 points will be shared.

I have all the scores here so if you want to know how your story scored then please U2U me.Excluding those three stories 5 scored 80% or above.A further 5 scored 70% or above.

Banshee was the other judge.Thanks for your help B.

Well, thanks JB and judges. This was, to say the least, unexpected. It was a pleasure to compete, and everyone who submitted did excellent.
