Sharon, that was my light-hearted way of telling everyone to go for it. If everyone that already expressed an interest turned in one good story, that would be more than enough. I might have one or two, myself.
One thing, though. Please, please, please take the time to do your own editing (which I know all of those here would). The amount of time it would take to correct a 5,000 word story really scares me. I think most of you already know the best format. Single spaced, flush left, with paragraphs separated by an extra return (like this post). Oh, and remember how your old typing teacher used to tell you to put two spaces between sentences? I know it's a tough habit to break, but try. Even print publishers hate it!
