Is there anybody out there? :-))) Jul 19, 2005

Ok, no hands so far. Anyway...

Let me give you a couple of advances.

My idea is to invite all of you to write a short piece with this limit: the contribution should not exceed 99 words... I have always been a big fan of Barbara Feldon

Your writing should be inspired in a 'something' I would be posting soon (if I get enough hands to go ahead with this project, of course).

Guidelines and bla bla bla Jul 19, 2005

Dear ProZmates,

I will open another thread (hereinafter "The Contest"), just for the contributions. In The Contest I will post the 'inspiring something' (still a mystery, even for myself) and everybody is invited to post there. No comments in that posting, please, just the title and the story.

Wizard Cavallito's concoction, which has proved successful so far:

1) All Proz.com rules of ettiquete apply to this contest.

2) Stories should not exceed 99 words (title is not included in the word count).

3) Stories must be written in English and should be based on the inspiring picture/drawing I will be posting.

4) Everybody is more than welcome to participate (well, not everybody, Paul Auster is not welcome), with as many stories as s/he wishes (can!!!).

5) "The Contest" will be open for two weeks (i.e. until August 5 at midnight -00:00 hours- ProZian time), when Hermione will come with her proZian prozlock and the famouse GAME OVER signal will appear (most of us are baby boomers, I feel this is a clear reference.)

6) There will be a limited period of time to vote and specific instructions which will be given in due time. Any ProZian can vote, those who have participated and those who have not.
Addendum: No stories complaining about the Moderators of this Forum are allowed.
All comments/suggestions/clarifications should be made in this thread.


*************************************************************
You are all invited to dream, to fly, to scare us, to make us laugh, think, smile, wonder and wander, question, see the other possible side (and the other one, and the other one, and the other one). Let's have a Party of Words.

Thank you very much, my friends.

Au
