Short Story Contest 43 Submissions & Details Thread Theme: The Inanimate Comes To Life! Open to all, newbies and established members alike. Please post your entries as replies to 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: The Inanimate Comes To Life! (courtesy of member Largeman). Any interpretation valid. Suggested Wordlimit: 500 - 3000 words. Deadline for entries: April 29th 2009 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. Try to make all your entries 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. Only one entry per contest please. Please try to refrain from itallicising, bolding, colouring 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. If there are any questions, please leave me a visitor message or PM me. Please do not clog up this, or any other thread, with your questions. Thanks and good luck.
