    LITERARY MANEUVERS
    Out at Sea

    A reminder of the prizes awarded to the winner of the LM.

    The winner will receive a forum award which will be pinned to their lapel by Baron himself. Also the winner will be awarded with a one month free subscription to the forums (FoWF) which will give you access to additional forums and use of the chat room where a there is a steadily growing community!

    So, do your best!


    Our prompt for this months competition is:

    Out at Sea.

    In 650 words, write a story where the prompt above is in some way included in the story such as the theme; object; setting etc. So there should be many ways to connect to the prompt.


    The judges for this round are:

    Terry D; KarlR; Fin; Mr mitchell

    (To the judges, send your scores to Potty via PM - and if we could aim to have them sent a week after the closing date that would be ideal.)


    Now a recap of the rules:

    1.The word limit is 650 words not including the title. If you go over - Your story will not be counted.
    2.You can no longer edit your entry after posting. There will be a 10-minute grace period, if you want to go in there and edit a typo or something, but you should approach this as if you were submitting your work to be published and paid for. When you submit, that should be your final work, the work you are happy with.
    3.And of course, there can only be one entry per member.

    No comments in this thread please - Only competition entries (and links to) to be posted in this thread.
    Also hold off on "liking" stories until the judging's done.


    There are two ways to post your entry:

    You can opt to have your entry posted in the LM WorkshopThread which is a special thread just for LM entries in the Writer's Workshop. You would put your story there if you wish to protect your first rights (in case you want to someday submit the work to a magazine or whatnot). Take note: If you have elected to put your entry there in the Workshop thread you must copy the link into the main competition thread or else it will not be counted.

    If you aren't too concerned about your first rights, then you could place your here entry in the LM Challenge thread.

    Everyone is welcome to participate. Judges are welcome to participate, too, but their entries will not receive a score.


    This competition will close on:

    Sunday the 14th of September. To avoid confusion the thread will close at 11:59pm (Sunday Night) LOS ANGELES, USA time.

    Good luck!
