Question Kinzville newz contest help!!

So, I'm writing a story for the floral fox contest, but I'm a little confused....

It says on the rules that it must have 1,000 characters or less, but isn't that a little...short? So far I have 300 words, 1,377 characters without spaces, and 1,670 characters with spaces. Should I rewrite my story, or do they really mean 1,000 words?

Thanks in advance!

If they said characters I'm sure that's what they meant. Good luck!

They mean 1000 characters. Including spaces. I don't like it. It's way to short! I wrote a good story and all I have been doing is shorting it and it still doesn't work! I wish It was 2000 characters.

Thanks for the help! I wish it was longer, too! You can't really make a good story at that length, but I guess they need to read a lot of entries. Good luck on your story!

Yeah, I wish it was a little longer too. For me, it's way too short.

They mean Characters. I think the reason is because of all the little kids on WW. Ganz doesn't expect some seven year old to right a 1,000 worded passage. That is the reason I believe they have it... Hope I helped

It's probably because they don't want to read anything much longer. From what I've seen of what they've selected in the past, they seem less likely to award prizes to older members/more advanced writers anyway.
