    Once we have the basic idea blocked out here I suggest a sticky in The Red Room.

    How did we decide the winner last time? Was it just Storm who picked it? It seems everyone who is interested in this happening is also submitting a story.

    My shortest story ever was close to 20,000 words. :-(

    I wouldn't mind helping to set one up if Cass doesn't feel like it.

    We should have a sci-fi writing contest.

    I have no problem with making another one, but I don't think that it's a good thing to have them only a few months apart. While people will certainly join, we'd probably have a problem with prizes. If anybody knows a solution, we can start at any time. Go cadge ;)

    I'd be down for a sci-fi/fantasy contest.

    I have some "Enterprise" stuff I can contribute as prizes (Hey Anna, want an Archer action figure?) :tasvir:

    Hrm....I still like the sci-fi idea, but it might be a little too limiting for some people. Perhaps a contest that is sci-fi themed, but other types of stories are gladly accepted.

    Or maybe I just want the sci-fi theme because I like sci-fi stories. That, and I get to use my ultracool banner. :D
