Roll up, roll up, for the new, yet same as it ever was writing contest. That's right, it's still SSC, but it's had a rename all the same. ;o)

Please write me a story before;

Monday, the 10th November

Relating to the theme;

A game of chance

There is no limit on the number of entries per person, word limit of approx 2000 words, but do not feel you have to stretch out the story to get to that target, a better story with fewer words has more chance of winning than one which is too drawn out.

Unfortunately there were no entries - I don't think there's enough interest around here these days to have a proper story competition. I remember the days when you used to get into double figures with the number of entries, and would have a handful of really classy stories to choose from. Of course, back then, all this was trees...

I've not checked this forum in a while. Noticed this and I'm just going to write one anyway, even if the date has passed. :)
