  1. What's new in this club
  2. I realise it is probably a big ask as you all have things you need to do, but is there any chance of feedback on what we got right and wrong in the judges eyes? Just looking at ways to improve as a writer. In fact, if anyone wants to DM me with feed back it would be appreciated. I assume all feed back from people here would be constructive as you are all nice people 😃
  3. It was a pleasure reading all of them
  4. I was amazed by all of the stories. They all were wonderful and inventive.
  5. Well done everyone on this month's stories! It was a pleasure to read every single one!
  6. I can't wait to see what you all come up with this month 😁
  7. Greetings! Here is the thread where I will post th current standings in the competition, and update the thread monthly! The scores are averages of the three judges' score for each story based on the criteria of: overall writing/structure, usage of the prompt, worldbuilding/characters, and originality. After January's prompt, here are the standings! 1. Layla - 15 points 2. Thomas & Varsha - 14 points 3. Frog - 13 points 4. Karl - 12 points
  8. Hello Everyone! I apologize for the delay in posting the prompt, life has been slightly insane lately on my end. After reading what you all wrote for January's prompt, I'm excited to see what you can do with this month's! This prompt comes from my fellow judge @Holly Tinsley and I love it! The prompt: I don't think you're supposed to eat that Good luck, and I look forward to reading your stories!
    Interesting take on the prompt. I enjoyed it, good stuff.
  9. Yeah something like that would be great
  10. We could plough the money back into the next one, and once costs are covered, the rest goes to a charity. No arguments that way, other than which charity...
  11. I really like the idea of doing an anthology. The logistics could be a bit complicated but it would be worth discussing and figuring out. Maybe even set it up so that any royalties from sales just go into future volumes? Or something like that. (One of the biggest arguments I've seen against similar suggestions is about the division of royalties, so this always seems like a viable option to me)
  12. I did wonder about that. We take the best couple from each month and publish 24 short stories. Not sure how we would do the logistics of it all though. We could almost do it on a regular basis, if the writers battle happened over a series of years... "Page Chewing Tales" 🤣
  13. I feel the same way about mine. Yours and everyone's are so good. Maybe we should make a self-published short story collection at the end of the year. I love the different takes people had on the prompt!
  14. After reading all of these so far... I reckon I need to up my game if I want to stand a chance!
  15. And, my story is up! Thank you to everyone who had such kind words of encouragement. I had a lot of fun of fun writing the story once I got out of my head P.S I took a peek at all the other submissions, and they were all super fun to read.
