I think reads and retention only count after the deadline to give everyone fair chance!

Since it’s the weekend and she’s probably not working this late, I’ll answer you. lol
Yes you can put what your story is based on. Yes you can put it like that, it doesn’t matter really.
If that’s for your cover, yes. Also you can put it on the inside instead/ also if you like.
I hope that answers your question.

This is also shameful self-promotion of my future story, FT: Blossoming in the Snow :bouquet: :tulip:

:cherry_blossom: This is based on the story The Flower Queen’s Daughter and loosely based upon the myth of Hades & Persephone (inclusion of fellow other myths) :cherry_blossom:

I’ve finished a draft of my first chapter :tada: :tada: :tada:

I’m quite happy with it, I haven’t added music yet, but I tend to leave that until before I publish because it takes forever to search through the music library.

How are you all faring with your stories?

Agreed. A lot of us never get to finish in time or can’t even find the time to enter some. Or we might not even like the prompt so its good to know one is right around the corner that we can enter. That’s why I’m so shocked when I see authors joining every contest. Like, how are you guys completing every contest story and I can barely complete one? :rofl:

So, is it necessary for the author to choose an old folk story or fairytale? Or can I make a fairy tale of my own? Also, what classifies as fairy tale? A happy ending? Can anyone pm me? I have a lot of questions.
