If you write the story in the entry box itself it will count the characters left for you. If you are worried about accidentally losing it, highlight the whole thing every few sentences and press ctrl and C at the same time to copy it. Then, if you press the wrong button and lose it, you can just press ctrl and V at the same time and paste it back.

I wrote mine in the entry box and it helped me pace my story. At the end I still had about 2 sentences to go when I ran out of space. So I went back through my story and shortened it by changing things like "Floral Fox said" to "she said." The entry box let me know how many characters I had left the whole time, and in the end I finished my story with 2 characters to spare!

Yes it is too short in my opinion, but using the entry box is the best way to work within the perameters and pace yourself.

it does mean 1000 characters, including spaces. what you must do is get to the point. Leave out as many unimportant words. I know you want to use a lot of vocabulary and figurative language, but it is just not possible! webkinz wants this to be understandable for all members, not just the older ones! so keep that in mind, too, when you make your story. It is most important that it appeals to all members! good luck with your story!

I didn't enter! I got mad at it Saturday because I didn't want to delete stuff and then I forgot about it Sunday! But I deleted all of my good stuff so I didn't have a chance in winning anyway.
