Default Fluff Writing Competition [RULES]

Sorry but this competition is really just for fluff stories, not army background and that sort of thing. We have had competitions like that in the past, and may do again, but this time around I'll have to say no I'm afraid. Hopefully you will still be able to enter something, it's only 1000 words max after all.

Cheers,

--42

Can you lower it to maybe 750? I could probably do 1000 [glow=red,2,300]words[/glow] but I'm not sure about it...that is kind of a lot...

Sure put me in when and where can we post these?

I've got a story!


Edit: Meant words..............

Nope, there isn't, don't worry. If it is a good quality piece of writing it won't bear any affect on how it is judged too.

That is a mistake on Ninja Cell's behalf actually, the rules say 1000 words!
