The May/June 2015 Contest Cycle is Now Open

For the May/June 2015 Story Contest cycle the criteria are:
     1)   A Word Count Limit of 4,200 words or less
     2)   A theme of Implements/Improvisation/Impersonal - all 3 elements must be used


The cryptic selection process broke down and then adequate time for someone to come up with a nice set of conditions began to fade. In the end I personally chose the 3 tags for the theme. Hopefully they will serve...

4,200 words is not a hard limit, but if you exceed it by too much you’ll be asked to edit and resubmit. Keep an eye on your word count. For most authors it will equal between 10 and 11 pages of single spaced text in their word processing application. I didn't get much feedback on the word count limit so I set the level at what I thought would be best.


What do you think of the Theme?

Thanks for setting this up. As to your questions, the word count is something I don't really care about one way or the other and the theme is giving me problems this month. I don't tend to work impersonal stories.

Me too! For me, the harder part is the improvisational part. BUT, I've been brainstorming for about a week and I think I've got something interesting in the works. Not my usual first person victim style, but there's definite potential. Now I just need to find the time to start.

I'm mulling over the themes too, but I get a -4 on improvised weapons and my strength is low.

S  t  r  e  t  c  h  .  .  .




It was almost Implements/Improvisation/Impersonation, but I though that too obvious. (Cue a whole slew of not-really-a-cop stories.) I'll be honest the Impersonal is hard, I know, and I've a solid idea: it wants to have personal intrude at several junctures though. It's making me sweat a bit and I came up with the darn thing...

Heh, if you chose them based on an idea you'd already had, then we'd sulk about it. Good to know we're on equal fuzzy footing. XD

And it doesn't specify who is impersonal... I think there will be possibilities.

Ingy... Smart as she is sexy.

The theme elements are words and words are somewhat mutable and open to interpretation. Absolutely.

After 8 days of mulling it over the Turkey Timer in my brain popped up tonight and I see the way forward.

I can now start writing. That's not to say I haven't been working. Maps. A lot depends on the correct set pieces. I have the location nailed down quite nicely. All the elements necessary to build frisson can be had in the environs of West 11th Street and Bleeker.

I've had several ideas crop up, but not one of them is good enough to be interesting to write, either because they're too obvious or don't capture the theme properly (eg substituting unresponsive for impersonal). I think I'll skip it this month too and give the contest a final look next time. Good luck all, I look forward to reading your entries.

Translation: I was hoping you'd enter the contest and write, but you announced you wouldn't. :)

I would if everything I came up with wasn't garbage or didn't quite fit. Hopefully I'll do better next month, sorry. I'm just not quite as creative as some of you.

After letting the ideas stew and percolate a couple weeks, I was able to spend much of the day writing. I'm up to 2200 words so far, and a little over half way finished. This one will need time in the edit/chopping room, that's for sure. It's definitely a different kind of story for me. I usually like to play with personal, forced intimacy, and I ALWAYS write in first person. This time around I have neither!  :O Nevertheless, I'm feeling a little proud this evening, knowing I'm pushing my limits and working outside the/my box on this one. Thank you for the topic, RRH!


Anyone else working on an entry? I hope??
