Well that sucks but 2 weeks is plenty of time for a short short story (micro fiction). As soon as you have an idea, hang on to it! Just throw it on paper and spend the rest of the time editing. I think you can knock out a 3k short story with 1 hour of writing and an hour of editing. Here's a hint for you (plus to whomever is reading): the two main criteria will be 1)romance and 2) a heart motif. Start thinking about your story now.

Sure, I'll join a writing contest. :)
Sweet. I'm thinking of giving all participants an extra half-point for future contests to encourage participation.

I'd judge some writing contests for sure, but probably wouldn't be into writing for them. I've read some amazing originals in all of the old contests I judged here.
Also sweet. I'll put you down for it, man. Since there's more than one judge, I'll also offer to give some criticism on the side, although I encourage peer-review.
I have the MWC all but posted. I'm waiting to post it on Saturday morning. It will follow the format of the old contests pretty much (must be posted in the official thread, must abide by word limit, must follow prompt, etc). I'm also reducing word limit to 3.5k and disallowing fan fiction.
