Solicitation 4: Short Stories

Postby captnmartin » Fri Feb 12, 2010 2:09 pm

Much like the Catalyst Total Warfare production, the CMR will have short stories capping Chapters.

Guidelines
-Stories should be between 2500~3000 words long.
-Proper grammar and structure will make your submission more likely to be approved/selected.
-Avoid using homebrew units/characters as much as possible.
-That being said, remember to respect the Orginal Canon as much as possible if you decide to use a major unit.
-Focus your story around the theme of the chapter, ie, the Bomber rules chapter should be capped by a story revolving around bombers.
-Write with style, use a thesaurus, change up your phrases, make it exciting and interesting. "He fired his guns" vs "Roberts' thumbs mashed the buttons, causing the twin Joliet .60 cals to erupt in a blaze of fire and violence"
-Don't be dismayed by criticism
