    * Everybody can send up to three entries.
    * each conrtibution may encompass 800 words (without title).
    * You have four weeks time to create your piece(s). Submit before midnight (RHP time) of the 7th of May.
    * Send your files either via PM to me or per mail to Ponderable_Dickens@yahoo.com.
    * I will create a voting thread after then.

    Your efforts are appreciated sir!

    I have (genuinely) completed the first draft of a story which is arguably the best thing I have ever written.

    (The above is in no way an attempt to intimidate Moonbus, last year's winner).

    Watch out for the new kid on the block. I may be borderline illiterate, but I am sure somebody who has read stuff will tell you of great authors who were as well, possibly, somebody... anybody??

    You (with a good few besides) are on my radar sir!

    I think this is the kind of competition where everybody has a shot, as it really comes down to a good core idea that is satisfactorily contained withing the 800 words limit.
