Depends what's in season, I always like using seasonal fruit and veg.

Root ginger is especially good right now, I use half for Gari (pickled - perfect accompaniment to sushi), and the other half for...Embarassed

I'm still trying to find out more about this potato myself...does it sing? Does it dance?

I have a question: if you want to submit a story that's longer than 10,000 words, can you submit it as two parts, or is that not allowed? I'm just worried about my current story. I can try to cut it down, if necessary. It won't be much longer than 10,000, and definitely shorter than, say, 12,000, but I might bump up against the limit. What are the rules regarding this?

10,000 words is a guideline, less than 12,000 should be ok. Going by the feedback we get from people, anything over 10,000 words, you're unlikely to keep the reader interested, unless it's exceptionally well written. Most people expect stories (online), to be readable in under 15 minutes, that's not possible (for the majority of people), if the story is that long.

Speaking for myself, if a story is over 5,000 words, I'm likely to get impatient, stop halfway and not come back to it unless the story is AMAZING (and that's only happened once. .. the coming back to it part).

Agreed. It takes me a little under 3 minutes per 1000 words, taking it easy, so that's 15 minutes of my time. 10,000 words is half an hour out of my life, it had better be a good story!

I'm going to be honest here. If a story is over or close to 10,000 words and you're not one of my favorite authors, I'm not reading it.

Bump. Deadline fast-approaching.

I think this is the first competition I've entered where I haven't been scrambling to get it in on time (snigger). Can't say I care for the long wait though...

Edit: As much as would love a potato, I could REALLY use the cash just now (I'm beginning to think it might be cheaper to just MOVE to London). If anyone hasn't read and voted a 5 on my story yet, go'n. :)

Every day is a school day.

I thought the deadline was the 12th, unless I read the comp page wrong. Oh well, more time to harrass people to read my entry (link in my sig angel7 ) I'm shameless, I know kekekegay
