25 words ... not much is it? Very Happy

$25 per story -- that's $1 per word. Blimey. Might have to have a go at this one.

Well done Flirtybee. You qualify for a third entry straightaway. 25 words is nice. I can see some pictures in my head already.

Thanks for the prompt.

i've sent in two.

an interesting exercise.

both my stories were originally around 250 words!

however, i only think one of them is worth anything.

DEADLINE IS NOT THE 15TH.

I don't know if they have extended the deadline or not but this is from their website:

Submissions will open August 1 and close at midnight Eastern time August 31.

I think the 15th was if you were taking advantage of the option to send in an extra one if you published a link on your website (which flirty sneakily did above). Personally, I'm struggling to come up with a second one ...

Sneaky? Moi? Pah, I thought it was too good to miss for all. The third entry was a plus!

And don't worry FG, the missus read mine and wanted explanations and a glimmer of understanding. I think I REALLY pushed the Hint bit Shocked
