And the countdown begins . . .
There are only 14 short days left if you are thinking about entering the Circle C short-story writing contest this year. January 15 at midnight is the deadline. So far, I've been reading some super-great stories. Good luck, judges (LOL). It will be hard to choose stories this year! I'm especially excited to see a good showing so far in the 14-17 age so early on.
Probably 80% of the stories show up the last two days, so please try not to wait until the last minute. The earlier your story is turned in, the more I will enjoy it as I format it to get ready for the judges.
I format all stories at 1.5 line spacing, Palatino font, 12pt, and NO line spaces. If you can do that, you will save me a lot of time.
And please indent your paragraphs. That helps too. And no fancy titles or fonts. I just change them to the "boring" Palatino font anyway. It's important for the judges that all the stories "look" alike in presentation.
I'm getting excited for this newest edition!
