Post questions, comments and other stuff like that here.

First official question.  Woot!

So now that the competition has officially begun, may we assume the list will not be added to?

So in the rules you say we can pick a start, several middles and maybe even several endings.  Does that mean that we can strictly only choose one start?

By all means, pick more if you think you can do something with them.

Thanks.  I should also have asked before but is there somewhere we can view last years winners?  Thought it might help inspiration to see what decent fiction looks like  ;)

Hey, I was wondering, should the story be single or double spaced?

Single spaced is fine.
