The word count of the short story keeps changing, as does the time limit for each round.  FF is always 1000 words in 48 hours.  Round 1 of SS is 2500 words in 8 days, then it keeps decreasing down to 1250 in only 24 hours for the finals.

I’m tempted to try but I agree the fee is a little steep when you’re only guaranteed one story.  Not the time of year I can be spending an extra $43.  Will definitely be back for FF next year though.

Well got a small holiday bonus at work so decided to enter.

2500 words seems so long compared to these other challenges, but I guess that will be the challenge 
Big smile

Reminder that today is the final day for early discounted registration.
