Get ready folks!  There are currently over 120 entries, and more are still flooding in here in the final hours before Friday night's deadline. 

It will take me a couple of days to finish formatting all the stories for the forums, and arranging them into groups.  But sometime after the 4th of July we'll be voting on which stories should be purchased and run on Podcastle!

Hello! I've joined the forum just now so I can submit my story but I've been a regular listener for a couple years. I love the Podcastle and its delightful friends. This contest was a good opportunity to get back into fiction writing and I'm really glad I took it. I'm looking forward to reading other people's submissions. Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone! It's been a long time. I was a regular in these parts several years ago, but have taken the last few years off for school. (I started my last class EVAR last week. Almost there...) Good to see some old familiar faces--Benjaminjb, Schrodingrr, danooli--and many new ones.

I've submitted to many of the previous flash contests, and even got into the finals in one. I'm very excited about my story this time, and eagerly await everyone's brutal, soul-crushing critiques. Wink  These contests can be harsh, but they're so much fun to participate in. Good luck everyone!

Is it July yet? Is it July yet? Is it July yet?   <-- my brain right now.

Can you tell I can't wait to read all your stories? Cheesy

You have a slight advantage over us 'Mericans. It's July 5 hours earlier for you than me! (Although Graeme, Aidan and the rest of the 'Stralians' are even mre futuristic.)

Alas, it doesn't mean we Aussies get to read the stories sooner.  We have to wait until it is July in Yank-land instead.

On the plus side, though, it gives us a little more time to finish off and polish our own stories (says he who is having a go at this story writing business for the first time).

Got one in.  Struggled to think of a story, then promptly wrote myself into a corner.  Ended up stuck there for a couple weeks, was getting increasingly worried I'd squander this opportunity to get writing feedback!

Finally, while sitting in a dark hotel room in Tijuana a couple days ago, the answer came to me and I finished up.  As always, my first draft went a couple hundred words over the limit and as usual, they were all gooooooold but I somehow managed to make it work.  I mean word-count-wise, not necessarily that it's a good story.  But it's 500 DAMN WORDS, who needs definitive articles, pronouns, and verbs anyhow?  Crutches, the lot of them!

Cutter! Good to see you again too! Your critiques are always spot-on. Smiley
Also jazzed to see sooo many new people joining the forum for this one! Big welcome to all the new faces. Looks like the contest this time around is going to be huge. Looking forward to spending the next few weeks making some really difficult voting decisions...
