unfortunately, you won't be able to submit that story into my competition of words. Since the story has been previously posted here on Heresy, it is not eligible for submission. This competition of words requires that you write a new piece of fiction to submit.

Aww....but it use to be in the fluff discussion section, then it was moved to the fluff make your self section? Does this still count?

EDIT - upon reviewing my thread, it was never an original story, or a piece of fiction, nor was it ever in any sort of valid format for a entry of the homebrew section, it was moved their by some one else. Thus I contest that I should be able to enter my story if put into a valid form for this competition.

If you think you can write an original story from the ideas put forth in that thread at a length of 4k-5k words, and submit it in the correct format, as per the submission rules on page one of this thread, I will gladly accept it into the competition. The deadline for submissions is Midnight on August 31st.

Hey guys,

I only found out about this a couple of days ago, as you can see by my post count I'm new here.

Though a bit hazy on my WH40k lore, and despite having never tried my hand at writing before, I'm going to take a crack at this.

However, because I've only known about this a few days, I'm just wondering if I can get a written confirmation from someone (I suppose it really has to be Ploss ) about the latest an entry can be posted and what timezone this is in - so that I can work out whens the latest I can post from where I am (GMT +9:30).

I just want as much time - limited as it has been - to polish up my work.

I'm supposing for me its somewhere around the mark of late morning local time on wednesday the 1st (this would correspond to late on the night of the 31st from where you are Ploss <I think haha, it's late right now> - I assume thats the timezone you're running the comp from).



Anyway, thanks in advance for your help.

Also, I've read some of the work that's been posted thus far - great work guys.






EDIT: have read some of the most recent replies just now, before I hit post. I see closing time is midnight of the 31st - however I still would like to know what timezone this is. At this stage I'm only halfway through, so it's going to be a bit of a stretch for me, every hour counts. I am looking forward to at least getting some constructive feedback/criticism regardless of how it turns out. Thanks again, good luck to everyone

The timezone matter was brought up a couple of pages ago. Here's the reply from Commissar Ploss
