    I noticed recently that Mibba is full of stories based in the same areas. While that's totally cool, I also think it'd be awesome to see stories based in different areas. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a story based in the closest town or city to your own location. Any town and any city are welcome, as long as they are in close proximity to your current area of residence!

    Rules


    - Follow the Story Guidelines. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
    - Your story must be set in a city or town close to your own location.
    - Anything goes in terms of ratings, but rate accordingly!
    - Pre-writes are accepted as long as they fit the contest topic.
    - Minimum of 500 words, no maximum (that goes for both chapters and word count).
    - Chaptered stories do not have to be completed by the deadline.

    Deadline


    All entries should be handed in by December 1st.

    Prizes


    • A 200-word comment on a story of your choice.
    • Recommendations of two stories / poems of your choice.
    • Detailed comments on two poems of your choice.
    • Two subscriptions to any pieces of your choice.
    • Two 100-word comments on any short stories of your choice

    First place can choose three, second chooses two and third gets to choose one. The first-place entry will also be reviewed in the Mibba Magazine (if rated under NC-17 -- if not, the user can choose a story to be reviewed). All entries will receive a detailed comment.

    Participants


    [I'll be taking part myself on a non-competitive basis]

    I think I'll try this out. My town is Rocky Mount, Virginia (it's actually called the Moonshine capital of the world). If you've ever heard of the movie Lawless, Shia Labeouf actually came to one of communities around here. He was just up the road from where my sister's boyfriend lives. It was pretty cool coming from a girl who grew up in a small country town.

    I'll join, but I do have a question. I come from a very tiny village, and I'm not fully comfortable giving out the name - it's easier for creeps to narrow down who I might be in such a small place. THEN THEY'LL COME AND MURDER ME OMG. NO.

    Not that any of you are creeps. <.< I'm just twenty kinds of paranoid. At any rate, mind if I give the place a fake name but still base it off the village?

    @ BringMeTheFuentes
    Excellent, I'll get that added into the first post!

    @ EmptySighsAndWine
    I've not heard of the movie, but it's pretty awesome and exciting that he was that close! I'll add you into the list! Cute

    @ Aria T'Loak
    Yeah, that's fine! If you don't mind me asking, what state is it in, just so I can put that up?

    @ XXXataktoulaXXX
    That's cool, I'll put both up just now and if you make a solid decision on what one you're writing with then just let me know! Cute
