*Flower3* Welcome to "Show Off Your Best at the Sandbox." *Flower3*

HOST NOTES: It is with a heavy heart that I've made the decision to close the contest during the Summer of 2013. I hope to open up the contest again in SEP/OCT 2013. Real life recently has just interfered with my ability to judge in a timely manner. Hopefully in September, the demands on my time will have lessened and I can open the contest again. Thanks so much to everyone for their patience.

This is a monthly contest that focuses on Genre Writing. Show off your best writing and win Merit Badges or Awardicons.

*Flower3* *Flower3* THE RULES *Flower3* *Flower3*


#1 - Every month there will be a new Genre prompt.

ROUND 61 -MAR/APR 2013 PROMPT - "FANTASY, HISTORICAL, or FOLKLORE Writing."



#2 - Entries are to have a 4,000 word count, no more. Stories over the word limit will be disqualified. Word Count MUST be listed in the entry - points will be deducted from the judging if not.


*Note1* This is strictly for SHORT stories. Novel entries, scripts/plays, and poems will not be allowed.


#3 - Stories CANNOT have an awardicon.


#4 - The contest runs from 13 MAR - 30 APR closing at midnight on the 30th WDC time. No later stories will be accepted. Sorry. Winners will be posted on or before 10 MAY 2013 unless the forum host announces a modification in the posting block below.

#5 - I will allow for ONE edit during the open period of the contest.

#6 - Only ONE entry per author.

#7 - If there are not 5 entries in a month for the prompts, the contest will be extended one extra month. If there are still not five entries, then the entrants will be listed and they will spilt 10K GP's.
