    i think so... yeah, Christmas is wintery. Even if it isnt (Im sure it is), if that is how you feel, then put that.

    If anyone cares to know, this sucks. I cant talk, eat, or drink. I got stitches today on my lips and inside my mouth... :(

    Mine's like 1495... I usually go over and write long, but i think that this short story about winter already expresses how I feel. How to show again? Im not done yet but i think Il be ready by Wednesday, cuz il be home from my stitches... for like 1 day.

    Good luck everyone!

    wtf... i just missed a whole page of posts... I must be blind.

    Yeah, I'm actually going to have to withdraw from the contest; I'm really diggin' this story, and it's already in excess of 3,500 words. I'll still post it once I'm finished, but it will not meet the requirements of this contest, and I don't feel like writing something else altogether. Good luck to everyone else, though.

    Ill join.

    I do have a question though.


    Can the ending at the end say "To be continued"? Or must it end?

    I have to draw a line there, fellows. A ending will be needed, unless you can write a to-be -continued in such a way that it does conclude the reader. If you fail to end it successfully, you'd probably get docked on the plot.

    that might be why I don't do as well in the last contest, cause my story in no way ended. I'll remember that.

    cmon Fatmankev, i actually hope youll join in.

    im sure you can manage a well "to be continued" ending.

    (good sportsmanship, or writemanship? lol)

    cuz of my stitches, ive been doing nothing outside for like 3 days now... so my story is pretty much done... i think im going to submit it tomorrow...

    do you think i am noob writer cause i finish so early? lol

    good luck to everyone!

    Length: Your story’s length must be between 1,000 and 2,500 words.

    No less than 1,000 words, no more than 2,500 words.

    I might join. Last time I joined but didn't have time to write anything, so this time I'll write something first, then join :p

    If that's the case, why not take a few weeks and touch it up? You've still got plenty of time until the deadline. :)
