new writing competition

Okay, crack your knuckles, dust off your keyboards, and get ready to sling some words: starting today and ending on the 15th of October, I challenge you to come up with your best 5,000 words (or less). The theme: anything you want, covering whatever you want, and in whatever style you want. Want to write an epic poem about the plight of your average zombie? Go for it. Five thousand words of love story between two paintball players at D-Day? Sure. Want to write two sonnets and a ballad on the joys of butterflies? Knock yourself out. Post them up here, I'll lock the thread on the 15th (or 16th, depending on if I remember or not...) and set up a new thread for everyone to vote on their favorite. Prize is um, uh, the satisfaction and adulation of your fellow MCB'ers, how about that?

Question: does this need to be an original piece, or may it have been published elsewhere?

I'm looking for a couple of people to proof read my first section of the story. And give me a few help ideas on the next section of the story. It is military based. PM me if you want to help.

I don't care if it's new or not, as long as we haven't seen it here on MCB before.

Keep up the work, guys, couple of weeks to go!

Hope everyone's plugging away, less than 2 weeks to go. I need to buckle down this weekend and finish mine up so I can give it a quick once over before the 15th.
