Prompt-free contest for stories of the lengthier variety. New round May 2022!

SEPTEMBER ROUND WINNERS
First Place: "Invalid Item
Second Place: "The Last Thirteen Days [18+]
Third Place: "Secrets [GC]
Honorable Mention:"Binky's Bedtime Stories of Hymaytience [18+]
Just so everyone knows where they are


Ladies and gentlemen, it's back! Long, Long, Long has returned to reward short stories of at least 5,000 words and the writers who pour their hearts into them. As a writer of these somewhat longer pieces, I hope to find others who enjoy this level of writing as much as I do. Some of my favorite stories are longer than typical online short stories, and I want to see more of them. This is a great venue to achieve that aim. Because this is not as broad or ambitious as "Troublesome Musings [18+], this contest will be semi-annual (running in September and March).



*Questiong*RULES*Questiong*


1. Only story items (fiction and non-fiction) are permitted in this contest. All stories must have between 5,000 and 20,000 words. (Yes, this is an increase from the previous incarnation's word limit.) A word count must be posted in the the story (preferably the bottom).

2. ONE item of any rating per person per round.

3. All entries must be static items with the rating displayed in the link. This allows the contest forum to maintain an 18+ rating.

5. Items that have won other contests or have received awards from other individuals than myself are permitted.

6. New round details will be announced in a forum post. The current round will run May 1 to August 31. Here is the more detailed information for the current round: "Round 12, a.k.a. the ressurrection!"
