Now we're at 14 in the canon-based category and 15 in the free-form category. Thanks for busting up those 13s-- not good to have around on a Friday. Blink

can we post it to this forum somewhere and just link it ( if the post date is after this date of course.)

Yes, it looks like posting your entry the EVE Fiction section will be OK. But please still send me an EVE mail with a link to the post, so we don't miss it.


I am relieved to know this, because I had no idea where to post my story!

What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out the window.

Like William Shakespeare, I never go back and rewrite.

I have rewritten--often several times--every word I have ever published. My pencils outlast their erasers.

The thing about a story is that you dream it as you tell it, hoping that others might then dream along with you, and in this way memory and imagination and language combine to make spirits in the head. There is the illusion of aliveness.

It was a dark and stormy night..........


A man made of ginger stood and stared over his domain and smiled. A servent entered, "master we have the figures for this month ready for you". "You dont have to call me master in private, Hilmar will do"


I dont normally troll, but when i do i do it on General Discussion.

This is a great contest and I’ve enjoyed reading a few of the submissions so far. I’m thinking of entering (yeah, I know, only a week to go) but I do have a question on the eligibility of my submission...

A few years ago I sent a draft of the first part of a story to (ex-CCP) Zapatero for a bit of a review. I had a few comments back but never got round to acting on these or finishing the story (until today). The story has not been published anywhere (online or off), but would my contact with Zapatero disqualify my entry?

Any chance that you will extend the deadline on this? I've been working on something that I'm excited about, but I might be too busy to complete it by December 2nd. Big smile
