Just checked in on this thread this morning. Now concerned my story isn't were-goaty enough, so I 've mocked up some supporting material for the guardian creature in it - it looks like this.. hope that meets the threshold?

Makes a warding symbol and throws salt
Someone replace the picture in the first post with this abomination. (Though I don't know which of the two frightens me most)

Wow. We have 10 story submissions already and it's only the 7th.
Last month we ended with 17 submissions, and there were only 3 posted by this point in the month.

How'd this happen?  :o

I think, as someone (maybe Xiagan?) posted recently, it's gaining popularity.  :)

That was me, Raptori. I based it on the record 17 submissions we had last month.

Ah apologies, I couldn't find it anywhere.  :P

I do wonder how many there will be this month. We're definitely going to give it a go, so that's at least one more!  :)

Me too, so that takes it up to at least 12.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I will try to write one as well. So 13.

But I still don't have any decent ideas for the plot (or for the twists within it). :(

The increasing popularity of the contests is a good thing, I think. That means there are more votes, and that in turn means some stray ones might come my way.  ;D

EDIT: Correcting my haphazard English. And I only counted 9 story submissions so far, but still, they have accumulated incredibly fast. :)

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

And then meanwhile, there's Atku God of Goats, whose story needs to go away. Doubling up was funny, but not fair.  ;) So, that will be one less  ;D

We'll miss you Atku.

So write them both. I've done mine, just waiting for the beta reader (Lejays17) to see if she can pick up anything I missed.
