Just to clarify one thing… you are not limited to two paragraphs, and if you go longer you will not be disqualified.

However, this is meant to be your story about one short encounter, five minutes or so, a brief moment in time.

If it takes you 3 pages to get your encounter described the way you think it should be, go with it, it’s your writing. You won’t be excluded.

Give it a shot; creativity, imagination and fun will matter a lot more than how many words or paragraphs you use.

Good luck!

    Okay, I’ve worked something through here… just a technical question, do you want attachments in any particular format or would you rather just have it pasted in the email itself?

    Thanks, BBB!

    Okay, no, that’s a reasonable question…

    I would prefer the text be pasted into or part of the actual email message instead of as an attachment. It will make reading them easier on me. OPen email, read, enjoy, move to the next. Less hoops.

    That being said, if I can open it, then any attachment format is fine. Generally, worse comes to worse, I can figure out a way to open most text attachments. I’m not going to worry about it. It’s very nice of you to ask, Kayeri. I can’t wait to read yours!

    By the way, isn’t it nice of me to give you something to do while you wait for the servers to come back up?

    Quit reading my mind… I’ve got your blog up on one tab, the realm status page on another, and the support forums for updates on a third and my guild forums on a 4th. ::chuckle:: The writing is pretty well done, I’ll just wait for my editors’ approval before I send it off. :) ((that means husband and friend who writes beautifully must approve it first))

    Only took an hour or so, but I hope it wins!
