I like that. I edited the rules slightly. Made the word limit "suggested" and added this quote to the bottom of the post

That should be the only way creative writing should be judged. And again, I am not entering the contest so-to-speak, just writing.

Edit:
I have started, and I am already at 700 words. And I have not even arrived at the meat of the story yet...

Awesome ! I'm at 700 too Eddie but I clipped **** out of what I wrote. I'll see if I can put some things back, and I haven't even started with the real action.
I just did a little research for the story.

and I agree with Heather. The focus should be on how good and captivating and well written the story is

The idea is that she has been poisoned and the poison will kill her if she doesn't find the antidote within 24 hours. Everything else is up to you (including whether she succeeds finding the antidote or not)

I am going to wrap up my story within the limit. Should finish it sometime this week.

I have a few bits written on mine. Zach was pretty insistent that I include something I mentioned, lol, so it's in there, I promise (Lara thrashing about on the floor, hallucinating about corgis eating her face, while Zip and Amanda stare at her going 'WTF!')

The backstory is really nice. I'm not sure if I will be able to enter but good luck to everyone who will!
