The Guidelines are straightforward as usual:

  1. Stories should be between 500 and 15,000 words, give or take a million words.
  2. All Submissions should have the author's initials appended to the end of the Filename.
  3. All submissions are due by Sunday, December 20th at Midnight PST.
  4. This event is open to any reader or author that wants to enter; non-fort Family Authors are more than welcome.
  5. Have Fun Writing!
  6. All submissions should be sent to 2021 Christmas Short Story Event.

And now something special for this year's event Flash Fiction! The Themes are: A Horse for Christmas, An Elf For Christmas etc.

The rules are the same except for the word count, which is a Maximum of 500 Words!

As always, this event is open to all readers and authors. 

Happy Writing,

September 1, 2021: Donations Needed
Posted by The Story Lover

Due to the ongoing Pandemic, a lot of us have gone through financial difficulties. The Fort Family of Sites has been affected by those financial difficulties as well. In fact, for the last eighteen months, we have been running in the red. Due to quite a few of our sites coming up for renewal over the next couple of months, we will go far enough in the red that it will be untenable.

So, please donate to support our Author Hosting and keep all of our sites online. All donations large or small will be greatly appreciated. Anything you can give to support The Fort Family of Sites will go a long way to keep the sites online and Ad-Free.

Thank you for your generosity.

TSL for the Fort Family of Sites.

August 10, 2021: A new chapter from me
Posted by Boudreaux

That's right there is a new chapter from the resident blonde Cajun.  Chapter 37 of my CSU story "Dear Diary" is up for your perusal.  I hope you all enjoy it.

Well, for some. The rest of us have to work. :(

Anyway, before I go in I thought I'd post my latest chapter since a few of you have been so patiently waiting. (Yes I've gotten the emails and yes, I don't plan to reply. You know who you are... LOL!)

Chapter 4 of Commander Kid is now live and I'll do my best to not let so much time pass before we see Chapter 5... So... No more emails threatening to book me on a Space-X flight. Even if it would be cool ;)
