Wow, this is pretty awesome. Do these contests happen regularly? It's been a while since I've tried my hand at fiction. Weekly I write an opinion column for a website, so a break from "journalistic" writing is nice.

This isn't the best I could dish out, but it was the first thing to come to my mind. Most likely wont be ANYWHERE near being considered a winner, but it was fun to write it. Though, I did get some major writers block near the end and it feels kind of rushed to me. Oh well. Check it out.

Found Journal [CWC]


That was a great story!

S&F

There are so many great story's in this contest.Heck,every time I believe I have read a winner,someone else posts a even better one.

I haven't had to buy a book to read this month,and that's worth saying.

sounded like fun up until this point.. I simply don't feel like writing a story that way...shame because its a cool topic...maybe next time...

cool photo though is that a giant tree or a giant tree shaped rock?

Personally,I would write the story,regardless of the rules....


Might not win the contest,but I would sure like to read what you might have to offer,especially if its based on science fiction.

last time I did that it began a series of 'not following the rules' that got me banned once upon a time, and the story got pulled before I got to read any of the comments posted, though the private u2u's I got about it suggested people really liked it
haven't had as much success with any other works posted since but it happens.. thanks for taking an interest...

The next contest will be up within 24 hours. I've a trip out of town later this PM to take some paintings down from a recent showing, so it'd either be before or after that little journey.

On a side note, it was wonderful to see so many wonderful entries for the [CWC] competition, quite a few of which were a joy to read.

This is one area of ATS where trolling seems to be at a minimum. Thanking all who flagged and responded

Ever think about having an Honorable Mention as well? There were sooo many good entries, it seems a shame to just name three.

good luck, your paintings are something special for those with eyes to see...

if the last year is anything to go by that statement will become progressively more potent as time goes on... somehow I think this area and a handful of others on this site will end up as the last few pockets of civility... perhaps to take its place alongside all the other pockets of online decency on other sites if things really start to hit the fan IRL... I plugged in the antenna for my tv for the first time in a month the other day, spent the whole night watching it, functioned like a zombie the whole time, caught an episode of 'the big bang theory' and could draw direct parallels between that and the most popular tv show in the fictional movie "idocracy" called "ow my balls"....

the status quo needs a haircut... hopefully it won't take too much away from the fringe when it happens...

Peace,
