    Choose the pre-written character for the next contest:

    Discussion in 'Monthly Short Story Contest Archives' started by Gannon, Aug 3, 2011.

    The theme of the next contest is "Unknown Pre-written Character". The idea of this contest will be to take the winning character and write a short story of your choosing using him/her. To keep things democratic, I have just fabricated the below four characters. Please select the character you'd most like to use. The winning character will be launched as a "theme" of sorts. Do not vote if you have no intention of entering the contest. Thanks
