That's right, it's back again! To encourage Xeogaming's wonderful writers and the celebrate the boards 6th birthday (August 14th) we are bringing back the Story Competition. The rules are much the same as the first time, but with increased word limit.

- Short story of any genre, 2000 words or less (if you go over by like 50-100 words it's still good).
- Any genre is fine
- Must be an original story written by you! (fanfics are ok, just give credit to creator of characters)
- Preferably a new story, at least one never posted here unless it has undergone heavy re-writing.
- Grammar and spelling are important.
- One entry per person!

You will be judged based on grammer, spelling, plot, characters, description, and overall creativity. I am the main judge and as such will not be making an entry, if others are interested in doing so, let me know. All writers are allowed to critique each others work and give a vote, but may not vote for themselves.

Any questions? Interested? Submissions will be accepted starting 8/14/10, make sure that when you post your entry in the forum that your story says "Competition Entry" in the title. Example: "Competition Entry: The Day the Aliens Stole My Shoe".

Last day for submissions will be 8/21/10 at midnight (board's time)

Please post if you are entering so we have a roster of sorts. I wish you all luck.

xD, probably true, I can write well when I don't have limits, but I usually keep most of that offline, because after putting that much work into it, I usually want to save it for publishing or something.

I've got an idea though, hopefully the judge won't mind religious stories.

Wait, 2000? Seriously? I didn't know it was going to be so short. That's barely a story.

Also, I thought we were going to do the every entrant judges mechanic.

Heh, I think the last one you guys did was only 1500. Besides, a limit adds creativity.

Last one was 1000, actually. Do your best, if enough of you have troubles then I can raise the caps. Just remember, these are short stories, not novellas.

And Cairoi, we are doing the entrant judging... "all writers are allowed to critique each others work and give a vote, but may not vote for themselves". All I have done is declared that I am only going to judge, not compete, and made the offer open to anyone else that wishes to do the same.

Your hopes are futile. I don;t even have a plot yet. I haven't started writing.

I might tomorrow morning when I wake up, but I don't know.

Which of course means I'll get second to last place...again.
