Short Story Contest 32 Theme: Descent Into Madness 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: Descent Into Madness (courtesy of member Fluxhavok). Try to chart the transition from sane to insane. Suggested Wordlimit: 500 - 3000 words. Deadline for entries: Novemeber 12th 2008 16.00 (UK local) There is a 10% leniency with regards to the wordlimit. Please try to stick within the limit. Any piece outside of the suggested limit will still be entered into the contest but flagged as such, and eligibility determined by vote alone. The next contests will be themed: A Regretted Lie and Coming To Terms With Mortality if you wish to prepare an entry early. The word limit for these contests is 500 - 3000 words. Do not submit entries for these contests until instructed to do so. Try to make all your stories complete and have an ending rather than be an extract from a larger one and please try to stick to the topic. Any piece seeming outside of the topic will be dealt with in a piece by piece manner to decide its legitamacy for the contest. Submissions may not have been previously posted on this site, nor may they be posted for review until voting has closed. Please try to refrain from itallicising, bolding or indenting any text to help avoid disappointment. These stylistics do not reproduce when I copy-paste them into the voting thread. 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.
