First Official ODN Prose Contest

This is a competition for short stories of any length, type, or subject. It will be divided into two categories:

A)0-1900 words
B)2100+ words

If your piece is between 1900 and 2100, you may specify which category you wish to be in. A handy resource is

Word Counter (http://www.wordpeddler.com/wordcounter.htm)

The competition will consist of several phases and threads:
1)This thread, which will outline the rules
2)The submission threads
-One for category A (http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2696)
-One for category B ( http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2697)
3)The Voting threads
-One for category A
-One for category B

All pieces will be voted on in the threads, via a poll. If there are more than 10 pieces, we will have a thread for nominating the top 5 pieces, then vote on them.

Guidelines for Pieces
-Please submit your piece in the appropriate thread. Don't put a 1000 word piece in category B, or vice-versa.
-The format is pretty loose, just something that tells a story, fiction or non. No purely descriptive pieces, or essays.
-Only 1 entry per category. That means you may have two total entries.
-All normal rules of the writing forum apply.

Submission threads will be closed on Friday, March 25
