Darth - You are allowed to, yes. You may find it is more fun/interesting if you write a new piece for the contest, though .

For the word count, is this 750-1000 words total, or 750-1000 words with more than 3 letters?

I'd think it'd be total, but I guess if your entry has 3 more letters (to complete a word) it would be allowed.

No I think he means sequence wise.

With the old typewriters a word was a sequence of 5 'keys' so what Mavfreak wants to know is does a, be, is, the counts as 1 word each or does it has to be 4 letters and more to count as a word (like give, life, administration.).
