As a mod in this forum I won't be eligible to win, but I'm thinking of participating just the same.

Imagine your on the Space station and wake up bright and early on 12/21/2012, you realize you didn't get a wake up call from NASA so you look out the window and the planet Earth is simply gone.


I have several other ideas as well. I'm not going to use that one. It was just a passing thought.

If anyone else wants it feel free,

Hi, a few Q's

Does the text have to be in a format for this forum?

Can the text be an external document in a format with pictures?

Will it allow deviation towards 2012 personal theories amassed from what we have all read about alignments/2012 theories?

Just wondering, Is there a readers choice prize?

Like the one with the most stars wins a prize.

It would be preferable that the text is written in the manner of a post without a link to an external source. If you are thinking of using .pdf, I would prefer you didn't as some members may not be able to read the document form. The story must also, of course, be entirely your own creation. Any pictures used should be loaded into ATS Media and imbedded into ATS from there.

What, exactly, did you have in mind?

You can deviate as much as you like towards your own personal theories as long as it is still focussed on the events of 2012. The more creative the ideas you present, the more interesting it might be to the volunteer judgng panel.

There are always additional applauses and recognition for those who provided excellent work. I'll put that suggestion to the judges.

I have a question about this...

can it be more than 10000 characters? PLEASE?

I have a 9300+ character story, but with spaces it comes up over 11000+ characters. Yet the words are only 2061 at this moment. I am just about finished, BUT I need to know, if I can use a two page post?

Thanks

I decided I would do something for the fun of it also.

The lower limit is 500 words... there is no upper limit at all.

Enter your story in one thread with two posts if your limit gets exceeded, QA.


Looking forward to what you've come up with
and best of luck in the contest

Awesome!! Thanks for the speedy answer, I will continue on my way now in wrapping up my little story.

I have one small problem........... I like happy endings!

If happy endings ever become a problem in writing fiction, I'm gonna have to say that the Nanny State has finally lost the war.

Okay, I have submitted mine here, it is about worldly events but still a personal account of those. I hope that still works and is within the guidelines.

Also, I hope people don't mind my last little bit of reference I did at the end, hoping for a demise of certain people.....if you read it, you will understand what I mean. Sorry I just could not help myself ooooppppssss
