Hello fellow writers!
It's another month, and running off the recent success of our monthly contests, December will have it's own as well.
Member Swanne has chosen the theme this month and there are a few choices you can make. This IS the official contest thread, were not voting on a
particular theme, you may select from one of these at will:
1.A setting in the future, in alternative timelines, or in an historical past that contradicts known facts of history or the archaeological record
2.A setting in outer space, on other worlds, or involving aliens
3.Stories that involve technology or scientific principles that contradict known laws of nature
4.Stories that involve discovery or application of new scientific principles, such as time travel or psionics, or new technology, such as
nanotechnology, faster-than-light travel or robots, or of new and different political or social systems (e.g., a dystopia, or a situation where
organized society has collapsed)
As you can see these are all relatively open ideas and concepts. This means that the contest this month is an OPEN contest. No specific theme, other
than the Sci-Fi requirement.
