I don't have time to run a 100 word challenge this month. If anyone wants to step up and take over, please do so! I can pass on the Theme and Genre to the volunteer! If not, we can always do one in April.

I think it would be a shame not to have one this month.
I'm pretty busy myself, but if nobody minds not getting their stories posted immediately after sending them to me, I'll do it.

I would suggest a closing submission date after that of the 75, now, as we're starting a bit late.
So probably closing the 25th with voting closing on the 28th?
Or are we going for a short one closing before the 75?(which closes on the 23rd.)

Well done farntfar. 25th and 28th seem a good idea. Who's going to kick off the theme / genre thread?

The ending date for posts seems a little undefined here. Are we ending posting or voting on the
28th?
Ratsy.
You've set the last date for posting as the 28th in the entries thread. I have no objection either way, but let's get it sorted out now rather than wait for screams from late posters on the 26th. :)

Otherwise, for you early birds, I'm ready to receive your entries..

(And the first entry hits the board scant minutes later.)

Come one. Come all!
Everyone is welcome.

I thought maybe the 28th for stories was better so the voting for the 75th would be over. I hate to have them at the same time. Then Voting until the 31st? Sorry I was half asleep when I posted it

That suits me. We'll keep to the published timetable.
Last date to post the 28th.
Voting til the 31st.

However. 1 last point, Ratsy.
You have specified 12pm. I think we need to change that, as 12 pm is noon, not midnight and people will get confused. (Even if 12 noon makes my life much easier. :))

It doesn't matter where you are. PM starts at noon and AM at midnight. Thus 12pm is noon and therefore unusual.

I think it best to specify 24:00 GMT. (1am for me. La Farovna will be livid again. Sigh!)

We could go 24:00 Oz time, for Droflet. Midday for me.(ish. depends where you are in Oz)
So I'd be happy too. ;-)

Sorry. I'm just confusing everybody.

Posting ends the 28th at midnight (24:00) GMT, when voting starts.
Voting end the 31st at 24:00 GMT.

Lets just keep am and pm out of it. (As well as La Farovna/my wife)
(I am on French time so 24:00 GMT is 1 in the morning for me. :()

Looks like I'll have to do a websearch to see what time that is here.

Who am I kidding? My entry is already written in my head - just gotta get it typed! :LOL:

Story number 4 is up.
And the quality is still astounding.

I'd advise you (and me) to get in quick before all the great ideas have gone.

"New Strange Bedfellows" -- An ancient legend and a new myth combine in an unexpected way in this lighthearted tale.

"Alchemy" -- The old dream of transmutation is seen in a different manner in this story.

"The Color of Gold is Green" -- This fast-paced, action-filled yarn shows us the price of greed.

"The Darkest Magick" -- This vision of an exotic world carries a satiric sting in its tail.
