So, is the entry post a standalone post in CC?

Nah, do it as a reply in this thread. That makes it easier to keep all the entries together.

I think I'd rather do this than a live Google Doc. I write rough drafts in Notepad because word processing programs are very distracting!

Chili, could you add the links to the OP when the contestants go live on Google Docs or Twitch or wherever?

Yes and yes, twitching is such a great idea! Anyone who wants to do this, or share a google doc, feel free to post a link now and I will definitely add to the OP!

more tips:
1. have a vague idea how many words your story is gonna be when you start, you don't need to get to the max word count if you don't want to
2. don't introduce new characters after the first third, or new plot elements after the second third
3. good verbs are better than good nouns are better than good adjectives are better than good adverbs
4. a lot of good stories are about someone we care about who wants something they can't have
5.ignore any and all of this if you choose to

Don't edit your post once you've made it.

Post it right here, in this thread.

Include word count below your title.

Deadline is gonna be sharp, if I close it, and you haven't submitted, you're poo poo out of luck!
