Aww, man. I just wrote a poem to submit for this competition, and then I read that this month is only for short-stories. That blows.

Maybe I'll write a short-story tomorrow. Maybe.

Bummer. Well, if you have no other use for that poem, this thread could probably use some content.

We'd love to have you enter a short story here, too!

We'll see, we'll see. As it stands, I'm not sure whether I can pull off writing something this weekend, but I'm sure as hell going to try! I've got two tests and a quiz next week (the quiz and second test I absolutely MUST ace if I'm to have any hope of passing the class), so I can't exactly spend too much time writing, but what I've got in mind shouldn't take too long to write anyway.

Long story short: Vote = Undecided (for now)

5 DAYS TO SUBMIT!

I may have to extend the contest so I can finish my story :?. Though I have this whole weekend with pretty much nothing to do, so hopefully I can pull it out.

How is everyone else coming? I haven't received any submissions so far. Also, remember that I'm clearing out the three submission posts at the beginning of this thread, so if you haven't already, save your work!

Barnsalot, I won't go into the specifics of it yet, as the judging phase hasn't begun, but I will say one thing of your submission right now: :nicework:

On the topic of submissions, I've officially begun mine. 225 words in as of right now, and so far so good. I'll probably get it done within the next couple of days, since I'll only be working on it at night (daytime is reserved for test-studying :-( ). Good luck writing to the rest of you!

Two Shots. That’s what it boils down to. When you’re staring down the barrel of a gun and the other chump is doing the same, all the calculations in the world are simultaneously the most important and last important congratulations in your life. Who has the guts to decide to pull the trigger and risk it all?

This mark was named Shock Jameson. Bully, thug, hitman, Boss. Bad-tempered, bad-mannered, bad person. The most powerful mob leader in South City. But I know that you don’t overstep your bounds without expecting and being prepared for retaliatory reciprocation. Trading drugs overseas? Harassing political figures? Sorry Shock, but that shit just doesn’t fly. You make enemies like the syndicate that hired me, and I always get my job done – thanks to the incident.

So here I was, standing in front of the Shock. He grinned, mocking me. It didn’t matter. His defenses were in shambles, his body guards? They were around. Some in several places. He and I were staring each other down in the middle of some god forsaken warehouse in a bad part of town.

Shock fired.

All the calculations in the world simultaneously the most important and least important considerations in your life. Shock took his chances. He was dead his future gone, his decision was fatal.

Two shots, but if you walk in the sight of a gun, you’d better make sure that I’m not the shooter.

I don’t miss.
