I'm all in mrwupy,

My short story is called Murdoch Matinee, and I'm about halfway through the DOR reading list... so let me say to the participants "I'M Enjoying ALL of YOUR Stories"

I had to redo a few sentences after reading Asylum: (this one hit the nail on the head with my Character), but I won't and can't complain anymore about it
because it's posted now.

I'll likely be away for a moment so feel free to Check it out folks and let me know if you figured out what happened before the ending

be sure to leave a post or two if you will.

It's time, once again, to toss some of my mumbled writings into the mess of perfection that is the usual ATS Writing Contest.

Afterall, my writing prime is right in front of me, and I need to take as much advantage of it as I can.

Expect to see one of my stories in this one folks!

Oh wow! I'm so glad I saw this today! Looks like I still have time to whip something up......what fun!

Any specifications to context? I hang on the dark side

Oh jeez, I am so lame..........! Where do we send the submissions? I didn't see that info anywhere, although I am sure I just missed it

Added: NEVERMIND, it's just a little to early for me. I presume we post them in 'short stories' with the (DOR) prefix....yes? Okay, all better now!

(See, I can just submit a conversation with myself! Muhahahahah!

I know the feeling

You got it thought, start your thread here in Short Stories, add DOR as a prefix and well the rules are the rules, Dialogue only, minimum 500 words, one entry only and it has be in by June 30th.

Good luck

Thank you WW, I was only one cup of coffee in when I started reading...

Really great submissions so far, I'm impressed!

Can we use anything other than dialog? For instance if I say a location and time is that acceptable?

Edit to say, how to spell forinstance? It just 'looks' wrong...

If you take a look at my (non)entry, you'll see a number of qualifiers denoting the emphasis in speech (ie. softly).

I see no reason why you couldn't do the same with time or place as long as it isn't a sentence. Anything more would no longer be 'dialogue only'.

Hope that helps.

I support Masqua's point here. The contest is dialogue only, but I doubt the judges will ding you for a little supporting structure.

Well alright then. I was wondering about the finer details of the Dialogue Open rules.

thanks for the clarification.

I made a submission (DOR)Nature's reminder on June 10th. Sorry for the delay in posting here.

This ought to be very interesting. I just posted mine here and look forward to reading all the others!

Please allow me to apologize to all involved in (DOR) Dialog Open Revisited Writing Contest.

My entry contained some blatant plagiarism from the www. and my T&C infraction was found out and my writer status was revoked.

I meant no disrespect to any of the other contest entrants, participants or sponsers of the contest.

Let my example be a lesson. Abide by the T&C and Don't drink and post.

Hi all. Thought I would give it a try. It's called (DOR) It's often too late

My first attempt, so go easy on me!

posted on Jun, 24 2009 @ 06:31 PM
i am going unashamedly promote my (DOR) entry!
The untitled unfinished assigment
there is no death or destruction or darkness, just a dream.
what was the dream about?
its my first story for you guys, i am nervous, but i hope to send more musings...

I am enjoying everybody's stories so far!!!

posted on Jun, 26 2009 @ 12:04 AM
I had to try my hand at this. This is a great idea and I do love writing stories. I hope I did it right. Thanks for the contest!

I am still illiterate when it comes to using the tools for posting. The story is called (DOR)A Bad Of Fishing Is Better Then

This one's about to wrap up mrwupy,

I'd hate to Siphon through this Collage of Art, Suffering, Joy, Pleasure, and Mystery then figure out what's my best Choice, so Kudos to the Judges for their insights.

I've read all Stories up to this point and if I didn't leave a message I did slip something under the DOR
