It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

I'm liking the cavern city image too M. G. Boronha, I'll be curious to see what you do with it if you get the time. :)

How much help is considered sportsman-like? Can we have two or three people look over it, spellchecking only, or should it be done entirely by ourselves?

I'll put my two cents in on that Yora. I regularly have one or two people look over my pieces before I post them. Self editing is quite difficult and you're bound to miss the occasional typo and grammatical or punctuation error. As long as the actual writing is all your own I don't think anyone has an issue with someone else making sure all the i's are dotted and the t's crossed.

I've got an idea for the first image. Now to see if I can complete it earlier than bang on the deadline ;D

Half of October is already over, keep your stories coming!
Don't make the submission thread another abandoned place. ;)

One week left to go! Could you tell me if you plan to submit? I'm already a bit nervous...

At the moment we have an automatic winner! ;)

I actually have a story written. It's just a matter of editing a little and posting it, xiagan.

Lady Life is getting in the way of things, again. I'll see if I can come up with a story this weekend, but I'm not that optimistic this time  :-\

Mine's getting there and will be up there by the end of the month - I like leaving it late!

I've written something but I'm not that happy with it.  Hopefully will find the time to redo it a bit but will post it before the end of the month.

Sadly, I got swamped by school. So, no story from me this month (and ugh, I really liked my idea....)

Mines up. Hopefullly some others can get theirs in before the end of the month. There were some great images, it was rather hard to pick which one to use. Just an idea, I know it's not in the submission guidelines, but it may be helpful for readers if the authors say which picture they based the story on.

Regrettably, I won't be taking part after all. Got too much stuff to do, and wasn't that happy about my idea.

Still looking forward to read what everyone else has come up with  ;)

As promised, I've got mine up by the end of month - I think I must just like working to the end of a deadline!
