Read in a Rush Resurrection... or something different?

Postby Squiggle » Mon Sep 15, 2014 10:14 pm

Posting this to gauge interest.

Given the recent re-release of Space Hulk considering a comp for 1k stories based around that?

Comment/post if you are keen.

I'll have a crack at it. It's been a while since I wrote anything.

*sniff* We took it for granted until we let it dwindle and die on us...

But no more! Time to take back reading short stories in a rush right before we head out the door! RiaR forever!

No no, somebody hasn't been putting the dried frog pills in.

Also: bear in mind, my post was 9 minutes after my genial, supportive praise of your terrain thread, so consider the ramifications of that connection, if you like...

Good point.

Hey everyone! It has become clear to me that Mossy is a logical, honourable and above all entirely sane person whose opinions should be valued and adhered to by all.

Mossy's personality aside, I have posted the new competition up - you've got until the end of October. So get writing!!

Odd coincidence... I stumbled across my file of stories for RIAR (completed and not) the other day. I'd sort of cacked it and ran away from the whole idea, then finally worked up the courage/insanity to give it another go... and it had gone!

Will try to contribute to this new one... if I can cudgel my brain into some semblance of productive shape.

A mild whoop! RiaR is alive......
Apologies for the failure to spot this earlier and also submit to the Oct RiaR.

I will be joining the fray once again, brain cells and 8 month old daughter permitting!

Oct stories were really good and I look forward to some good themes to challenge us all.
