I am sorry that I?m so late posting this thread. I couldn?t jump onto a computer all day, so I had to wait until I got home. For those who don?t know a single thing about this challenge, please go [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=13738195&replies=15]here.[/link] Locate the ?Halloween Vignette Competition? section and read the details. As promised, here are your list of words and your beginning paragraph. Word List: [blockquote]- Blood - Undead - Sacrifice - Death - Slayer - Zombie - Grave - Surreal - Black - Doom[/blockquote] Beginning paragraph: They had gone. Foolishly gone. The outsider was dangerous. The dwellings of a hermit were no place for children, and yet they had blindly stolen a speeder to uncover the mysteries of the loner. Now, please remember that you need to use ALL the words on the word list and start your piece with the ?beginning paragraph? to qualify for this competition. If you don?t, you will be disqualified. You piece must be no longer than seven pages (in MS Word, Arial, point 9). Your piece can involve any characters you choose and any timeframe you choose. You may post your stories here. You have only 48 hours to write and submit your piece from the time this thread is posted. If you have any questions, please let me know .
