Also, DA, the more I think about any original works, the less I mind. As long as you tie it into the theme, bring it on.

Sorry about the ridiculous number of posts in a row, but its a pain in the ass to edit on my phone haha.

I'll post up links to some of the shorts on heresy online that were also entries in previous competitions in the type that I'm proposing to serve as examples.

Also, of course pending CP approval, if he would be interested in featuring winning shorts in The Heretic, I could start the competition early so that the voting would be completed a week before his publishing deadlines, as it most certainly seems that we have enough interested.

And... a possible name: Heresy Online Expeditious Stories... or, of course, HOES for short

Edit: Okay, first post has been edited accordingly, with links to past 900-1100 word short story entries.

Gettin' some HOES in every once in a while seems fine with me

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Ah, it's nice to see those again. "Help Me" in particular was a blast to write...though "Doll (Gives A Kiss)" wins an honorable mention.

I object! Why can't you post it sooner?!?! Backwoods, redneck authors are rather impatient given our backwoods, redneck ways!! Fine, fine. Monday will work for me...I guess...

Good luck and good gaming,

Just a strange, and possibly insane idea, but could we for the first month, write a Christmas themed story? Maybe Santa Claus goes crazy, ends up in the 40k universe, and tries to kill everyone? Or something a LITTLE bit more sane than that.

Lol based on the monthly theme-word, if that's what you want to write about, have at it. I for one have no desire to write a Christmas themed story. The introduction of more detailed seasonal themes is what I think killed the comp on the Bolthole, as less people were interested in the given themes, so I won't force people to have to write along that strict of a guideline, just the monthly word.

If that makes sense...
