I had so much fun reading the amazing stories in my previous contest, that I decided to make another one. ^_^
This time around, I will be looking for entries in the horror/thriller genre, and hope that I will get as good response as I did the last time.
The word count will stay the same, meaning that all entries should be between 1-10k words.
To sum it up in a simple way:
Word Count: 1,ooo - 1o,ooo words
Try to keep it PG-13
As usual, I want you to read the rules so that we can avoid unpleasant situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me, or quote me with your question(s).
Deadline: September 1st, 2o12
Good luck! heart
Note: I will be absent for couple of weeks, starting August 1st, due to a surgical procedure.
This does NOT mean that this contest is closed. All it really means is that I will not be able to update the front page or answer any questions you might have.
I would also ask entrants to wait with sending their entries until I've returned. This is because Gaia seems to save Outbox messages for only two weeks and I do not want to miss anyone's submission. Thank you for understanding!heart
I would like to give special thanks to The Benefactor, who generously donated 600k for this contest!
