Not really a proper competition...but feel free to post entries to a rolling competition based on a 'tweet'--140 characters including spaces (Word is your friend!). PLEASE CHECK YOUR STORY IS EXACTLY 140 CHARACTERS LONG--NO MORE, NO LESS. Your title is not included in the 140 characters, but needs to be 4 words or less.
Your story--glimpse really--can be about anything, so post away. You can enter as many times as you wish, just leave a 10 entry gap so you aren't forced to vote for yourself! Follow the voting rules...
Prior to posting your story you must read the last 10 entries (only) and vote on your first second and third place entries out of these 10 ONLY. Crits are not required (really) but if you want to comment on the three you voted for you may do so very briefly.
I realise the first few people who post will not have 10 entries prior to theirs to votes on, however PLEASE STILL VOTE ON THOSE THAT WERE POSTED PRIOR--EVEN IF THAT MEANS YOU HAVE THREE OR FOUR TO CHOOSE FROM. It is important to keep the voting process simple. YOU VOTE FOR THE STORIES (MAX 10) that were posted before!
Entries should be formatted such:
Entry Number: 1
[My story Title]
[My story] ----------------------
1. Story Title and number --great, evocative.
2. Story Title and number -- funny!
3. Story Title and number -- nice prose.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who tasted like chicken. Now I've told you a story, so go to sleep, Snortblaster. I mean it.
Title: Sing sing , too Funny. Title: The End is Nigh, took me a minute to get it, but liked it once I did. Entry Number 5, this too took me a while to understand, but there is a interesting story idea embedded in this one, so for that alone it gets my vote.
