 Okay, the first UKA Fiction Challange:

Write a droubble containing the phrase '5th of November'

Droubble = 200 words EXACTLY *

Droubble a work of fiction written in exactly 200 words. 

Closing date = Up to and including submissions published on UKA publishing day Friday 3rd November.

Winner = picked by admin after the closing date.

* The word count is decided by the submission word counter which you'll see below the submit box and should show 200 words:

Don't add text padding like '***' or dashes --- to reach the 200-word count because that's naughty! 😉

Choose the 'fiction challenge' category when submitting:

Fiction challenge submissions can be found in the navigation bar above - Latest Published/Fiction Challenge

Good luck!

I have written a test piece with three words and it was still accepted. Shouldn't a warning be given that it doesn't meet the criteria?

No, because this is not droubbles.com so there's no way of implementing a strict word limit. Hence why you should keep an eye on the word counter in the lower left and stick rigidly to 200 words. That's the challenge 🙂

No worries. I can appreciate that mate. We have to do what we have to do to make ends meet and all that. I'll keep an eye out on the forum.
