I'm game for Times New Roman size four. That is what I'm using now. I think it's what Retromancer uses. It just needs to be clear and easy to read.That's what I'm concerned about most.

Book Antiqua is cool too.

* Word count: I only envisage my own story to be about 600 words long. I think 500 - 2 000 is reasonable.
I'm game for 500-2,000 words, a number that can always be tweaked. I like the calendar date Abi.

However, I don't feel like waiting an entire month for a vote. Do you really want to wait that long? Then again, if we only have two entries it wouldn't be as compelling. I get your point with that one.

Re: Short Story Contest Discussion Thread

purely because ive seen it used in many a film or book, but for some reason i really like movies/books where the main character/hero/antihero commits an act of self-sacrifice (or dies doing something that saves all, regardless if it's self-sacrifice) but he doesnt become revived somehow. i feel like it has that much more depth and i respect it more.

Re: Short Story Contest Discussion Thread

A Song For the Deaf Part 2.5...the Part 2 can never be posted on the forum due to insanely graphic content containing more drug use, adult content, bad language, nudity, violence, and graphic sexual content.

“...son of a *****!”
“oh whaaa whaaa! get over it yuppie! wait...that’s it. you’re the definition of a yuppie. oh ho man is that making a comeback now.”
“i can never get enough...”
“well you think i’m sick? it’s not my fault i provide people with what they crave. it’s supply and demand. they want, i give. this wasn’t how i pictured my life you know. i’ve always wanted a son, but no woman can take my lifestyle, even for the amount of time it takes just to make a child she can’t take it. so if you think you have problems, look around, society is crumbling all around you.”
“how do you...ugh...i’m starting to feel funny...”
“ah, i was wondering when that would kick in.”
“...kick what in?”
“out of all the drugs sold, i think the fictional drug ‘The Jeffrey’ is quite possibly the greatest drug ever conceived. so i manufactured some, and passed it off as the cigarette you asked for. they work fine for me and give me a pretty good buzz, but anybodyelse will get adverse reactions.”
“mother****er...!”
“ ‘It’s uh, weed mostly. Sergio gave it to me. It’s got a bit of Opium in it, Heroin, crunched up E’s, Clorox, Methadone, Subutex, Morphine, Peyote, some other stuff that’s unidentifiable, and I think a little bit of Angel Dust if I’m not mistaken. It’s like a drug neapolitan.’ I believe that Aldous Snow said that one.“
“Jesus ****! I’m dying now!”
“you will suffer from respiratory failure, cerebral hemorrhage, and heart failure by the end of the next minute and die due to the amount of conflicting narcotics, stimulants, and depressants in your system.”
“Oh my God what’s happening to me? Wha-...What did you do to me? What the **** did you do to me?!”
“isn’t it obvious by now? you’re a lawyer, you should’ve had to learn Logical Reasoning and Logic Games by now haven’t you? how’d you do on your LSAT?”
“...I...scored perfect, top of my class.”
“my my my. what a fall from grace you’ve had.”
“...son of a---!”

We never came up with a final date. Abi had his suggestion, but I think we need a deadline. We have ADD!
