I think this is a good idea....example of new topic would include YOUR handle/screen-name and Hunting story ie.:-> Sparkman375's BigGame Hunting Story

Questions on rules? I got some...,
1) Winner has option of getting published or alternate prize (to be determined later, I'll contribute a prize)
1) Is it gotta be truthful? (This happened to me, sorta stuff! )
2) # of words requirement/limitation? (Magazines don't like novels, but short stories should be minimum 100 words....get creative, let it flow!) ie. the big, full bodied, tawny-colored, mass of a mountain cat...
3) SPELL checker Mandatory?
heh, heh....Sparkman

We are getting a few entries here and I love it!!! I dont know if we can limit it to 100 words, some stories take longer than that!!! HEHEHE SPecially if ya put alot of fancy words in there to bring out the picture!! Not Too short not to long, limit two stories per person sounds good, and a vote from everyone when its done sounds good to me VERY DEMOCRATIC!!! Moosie are ya gonna vote!

This aint fair!!!! My wife is a published writer and can make a story come to life with all of the flowery words. I, on the other hand, can barely write my name and I certainly can't write the way I wish I could. I read stories from people that have the God given talent to take me to that place and picture the scene. Sure wish I could do it.

What a gift!!! It's just as much talent as painting a picture. (I can't do that either.)
