4. The short story must be newly written, and NOT previously awarded.

5. Your entry should be submitted, ready to be judged. - Please edit for spellings/typos and grammar etc., before submitting your entry.

6. The contest will run on the 20th of each month when it is posted, it will be a contest that can run whenever I choose. The deadline for your short story will be @ 11:59 EST WdC time on the 20th day of that month.

7. There must be three entries for first place to be awarded. A minimum of five entries for first place, second place, and third place to be awarded. There will be a fourth-place if there are twelve or more entries. The judge or judges will determine any Honorable Mention.

8. Your short story MUST be in b-item, item form. Book entries are excepted but would prefer b-item or item form. If you are unsure how to do this, please consult WritingML Help.

9. Please, add a dropnote that will include word count, the prompt, and any other info needed in it at the BOTTOM of your page. When using a DROPNOTE it takes away any distractions from your story. If you're not sure how to do this, I will help you with it or consult WritingML Help.

10. I will review, judge, award, and make the winner announcement's by the 27th of each month, sooner if possible. Please NO edits until after the Winner's announcement, or you will disqualify yourself. I don't want that to happen because we are all very gifted writers.
