Awe, too bad :(
I do also have a poetry contest if you are interested! And remember, short stories can be as little as a paragraph to as long as a few chapters.
Open until the 30th if you change your mind. Great prize packages!

Name: Km2. Entry Link: Genre: Song Lyrics. Rating: R(but maybe PG, lol). Summary: I wrote this one for Lets Get Reading's, Song Lyric short story contest. I chose Tripping Billies by The Dave Matthews Band. I hope everyone enjoys it. I'm afraid that it might be a little too weird, though.
Lyrics used from:
Comment Request: Big Things Come in Small Packages.

This is pretty awesome. Like someone else said, I don't think I can throw together a story in under a week, though, but please continue to let me know when you post other contests, because things may change by the next time around.

For sure :) I will definitely have a longer contest period for the next short story (maybe bi-weekly, and the poetry contests weekly). I'd love more entrants. Hope to see you next time!
