Short Story Contest 20 Theme: Inspired by Song Lyrics Open to all, newbies and established members alike. Please post your entries in this thread. At the deadline I will collate all entries and put them forward for voting in a seperate thread. Sadly there are no prizes but honour on offer. The winning entry will be stickied until the next competition winner. Theme: Inspired by Song Lyrics (courtesy of member tonyshucraft): His suggestion was to have a contest themed by taking words or meaning from a favorite song and making a short story out of them. You could write a story about specific lyrics of about how they make you feel. For those that require a little assistance feel free to PM me with questions. Please provide the lyrics in question at the top or bottom of your piece. Suggested Length: 500 - 3000 words. Deadline for entries: March 12th 2008 17.00 (UK local) There is a ten percent leniency above and below the upper and lower word limits, respectively. Please try to stick within these limits. Any piece outside of the suggested limit will still be entered into the contest but flagged as such. Try to make your story complete and have an ending rather than be an extract from a larger one and please try to stick to the topic. Any piece outside of the topic will be dealt with in a piece by piece manner to decide its legitamacy for the contest. Please remember to give your piece a title and give its word count in brackets at the top of your story. Thanks and good luck.
