You've watched and waited in eager anticipation, and the day has finally arrived... the Second Annual Spherewide Short Story Symposium is here! (Here's the first.) Well, ok, not exactly annual....

Same general guidelines as last time: write a fictional short story, post it to your blog, and send me the link. Halloween is just around the corner, and I think it'd be fun for everyone to write a scary/thrilling/creepy/eerie story in honor of the occasion. Send the stories and links to me by Tuesday, October 28th, and I'll publish the Symposium on Friday, October 31st. As always, I won't be too picky -- if you don't want to write a scary story, that's fine; however the muse strikes you.

Last time we had 16 authors submit more than 2 dozen stories, and everyone had a blast. There's no grading or scoring, and you'll only receive feedback if you set up comments for yourself, so it's low-pressure. The point is simple: to encourage people to write, and to create a forum for sharing our stories. The S4 is open to everyone, so encourage your friends to send in a submission.
