I entered now to wait and see if anyone enjoys what I wrote.
Hope my entry suits the theme. Cool competition.

Why is it that the submission deadline is 24/11, while voting for best story closes 20/11, four days earlier?

I have a question… We can submit the texts until the 24th of November but voting is only until the 20th of November? Is that an error?

Where do we go to vote?
Maria 01.11.2013, 12:27:23 Uhr
I’m interested, but I will only write the English language. Is that a problem?

We installed a new plugin for the voting. You can make your vote for each story right under the blog article.

Actually this was a typing error. The voting ends on the 30th of November.
mandy 06.11.2013, 09:39:45 Uhr
Not at all. Feel free to write your story in English.

“Before the Past” by Daniel Sala. I enjoyed this story although he writes, at one point, of the passage of time in terms of generations. I like the confusion, nevertheless, between the past and the present as an intended artistic device. Punctuation is also artistically rendered with commas where normally there would have been full-stops. It gives the reader a sense of a loss of the passage of time. I would rate the piece 4 out of 5.

As we received a bulk of stories, we had to select some of them for the contest. The time for submission ended last week and we received more than 220 stories. Thank you for all of your submissions. We hope you enjoy the other stories and are sure that your short story may get selected in the next short story competition. ;)
