EDIT

Will all the entries be published for all to see on CBn, or maybe the best quarter of a dozen?.

End of edit!.

Edit #2

Mine will be possibly less than 10,000 words.

End of edit.

Please count me in!.

I have nothing written as yet, but it will not be on a 'par' with Richard Maibaum or Tom Mankiewicz. But IT WILL BE FLEMING, BondIAN Fleming!. :)

Cheers,


Ian

A selection of the stories, depending on how many there are will go into a collection and be featured on the CBn Fan Fiction main page. All of the stories will of course be put on CBn's fanfiction forums when everyone posts their own.

What the hell, I'm in. I can't promise it's length though, at least, not this early.

Thanks, Qwerty. I can't guarantee the length, but I'm guessing it'll be less than 10,000 words.

Once again, I must stress, please tell if you're planning a 10,000 or less or 10,000+ word story.

(Understandable in Leiter's and Max Zorin's case, but if the rest of you know, please edit it to your posts above. Thanks! (And once you do know, please edit your post -- as in Max Zorin and Leiter's case for example.)

Just a question, but what format do I put my story on if I do a 10,000+ word story? (Which I'm thinking on doing.)

Then again, my story could turn out to be less than 10,000 words. I can't make any sure promises at the moment, but I'd like to go past 10,000.

I can't be in. Because if I want Bright Fire finished before January I will have to stress like a maniac. If the time wants I could be done with it in March. Besides how many pages as 10.000 words?

Why not, I'm in. I think it'll be a +10,000 but I can't tell at this point. I'll let you know when it's looking clearer.

I'm hoping I can get it done before January, but I'm pretty busy.

As I'm pretty useless being able to stop and start when I'm writing, I'll wait until my brain's in gear, then write until it's finished. :)

I think that gives us twelve potential writers so far, some doing multiple stories. Not a bad start, but we're going to need a much, much larger pool. Come on, everybody into the water :) .
