Short Story Contest 23 Theme: Dream vs. Reality 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: Dream vs. Reality (courtesy of member thecox). Over to you. Any interpretation valid (as Freud would have contested and the Surrealists embraced). Suggested Length: 500 - 3000 words. Deadline for entries: April 23rd 2008 17.00 (UK local) (The next contest's theme will be a Survival Scenario due to interest in the theme in the theme voting.) 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.
