Out there... away from highways and the hustle-bustle of our busy communities, is another world which many of us have experienced both as a pleasure or, perhaps, a troublesome episode in our lives (like meeting a mother bear and her cubs on a walking trail).



This contest asks you to either write a story loosely based on your own personal experiences in the wild or, if you've never been outside of the city, what you imagine such an outing could be like.

It might be boring, exciting, life-changing or just a plain fantasy... but it should be based upon being entirely within, and perhaps maybe even prey to, the natural world around us (this one we're on, preferrable, but not as a hard rule
).

All T&C's apply

Title must contain [NATURE]

Enter as many stories as you like, but post them as seperate threads in the Short Story forum.

No upper or lower word count limits

Any writing form acceptable

There will be three winners chosen, based solely on the number of flags their story receives from your fellow members.

The contest runs until midnight, June 30 and the winners announced the following morning of July 1.

Winners only will get writer status, 5 'applauses' each and included in the Showcase of Winners.

This is one area where I may have to rely on experience or just be silly.

Think I'll go with silly.

It's June 1 and the former contest is closed with the winners already announced.

BTW... the 'other' Short Story contest running concurrently is just one more way to get involved in writing skills.

Gee, I thought writing about nature would be easy. There's too much, once I thought about it, to discuss in one story. For now, here's one that I hope you enjoy:

The Nature of the Beast Within.

More to follow, but they'll stray a bit more....

Now this is one I will enjoy for sure. I just wish my laptop hadn't crapped out on me. I guess I will have to suck it up and use the wife's macbook. So stand by because a good majority of my life has been spent outdoors in nature. I hope to have one to submit tonight.

2nd entry:

A simple story of [Nature].

Short, but sweet, from a different POV.

Hope you folks enjoy it.
