October 2011 Writing Challenge: "Dilemma"

I still can’t believe that this has happened, but obviously the honour of naming the theme for this month’s challenge fell on me. So here it is:


Dilemma


It may be a big thing—like which planet to save, or a small thing—like the choice between tea or coffee for breakfast. And anything in-between. It’s all up to you and your characters.


Some rules:

- the word limit: 7000 words max.
- only stories written for this challenge, no reusing older stories
- Star Trek universe, any era, any ship, any crew; no crossovers, though--let’s keep it fully understandable for Trekkies without knowledge of other franchises
- only stories finished before the deadline will be entered in the voting poll; not a rule but a suggestion: please try to post completed entries instead of posting separate chapters as they are being written
- the deadline is 30th of October 2011, 23:59 GMT. Voting will take place 31st Oct-2nd Nov.
- don’t forget to post the link to your story in this thread


Questions? Comments? Complaints? Post them here or PM me.

Good luck and enjoy writing

A little teaser.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Even When...

Synopsis: While having lunch with Doctor Julian Bashir, the ever mysterious Garak regales him with a story of a choice he had to make that could have had dire repercussions for Cardassia, the homeworld he has been exiled from.

Re: October 2011 Writing Challenge: "Dilemma"

Looking for a Beta for my Challenge Story to correct time-, spelling- and grammar mistakes. The story is very short, only around 900 words/ a little over 2 pages. If somebody who is a native speaker of English or very good in English has a little time to spare to look over it, that would be great!

Here's my tale! It's called Of Mastery And Fate. The dilemma? The cost of power--is it worth it?

Re: October 2011 Writing Challenge: "Dilemma"

Ack, I thought the deadline was the 31st. Too late to drop mine in the mix?

EDIT: nevermind, just saw that the poll was up. Well nuts, maybe next month...

Re: October 2011 Writing Challenge: "Dilemma"

Sorry

I posted the voting thread a few hours after the deadline, but it's already there and even voting has started.

I hope it won't stop you from posting your story anyway, even if not as an entry.
