Hey guys,

Just a friendly reminder, we have a Short Stories Forum.

There's a contest currently running.

I would encourage any and all members to participate, either by reading and then voting with stars and flags, or putting in a submission.

There is no skill level requirement, any and all members are welcome to give it shot. The format has been changed to encourage non writer status members to participate.

Yes, this is a shameless plug, but there you have it

Thinking about it a little more, we also have a wonderful debate forum that doesn't get as much attention as it should. Considering all the in fighting and hard topics we cover on the boards daily, you'd think more people would have to have proper, moderated debates about these high profile issues.

I'm working on it, but the grandkid keeps trying to "help". It may take me until near the deadline at this rate!

I enjoy reading the writing forum but participating brings back memories of highschool and how I sweat bullets having to write papers. I was soooo critical of my work that I would re-do every assignment over and over. I do the same with my threads on ATS. Jkrog use to read my threads before I posted them and would always give me crap for deleting ones I had written up without posting. I have always been very critical of my writing.

I did enter a few contests in highschool and won but let me tell you the anxiety those assignments gave me was unreal! I don't know why I'm so critical of my writing but i am.

Maybe one day I could participate if the contest suits my interests.


Until then I'll just read and S/F posts I enjoy.

My bad, I put the link for the new ATS site that we are beta testing, it's password protected.

I've updated the link

Mblah, now there's a member I wish we had writing short stories.

You know that I normally let the membership somewhat choose the topic, so please be vocal and let me know if there's a theme or a certain kind of writing that would spark your interests.

It's just as important for me to make contests and events that suit the members tastes!

Trying to get in time to punch a tale out and make time to read all the others.

New business = little time + expanding business = NO time spare.


Happy with the new format though, might bring a bit more attention to the forum and attract some new writers.

I have an idea for a story but am working it out. I'd like to join in more, especially debate, but would be better when feeling more up to par with the competition and status, let alone more time.
