Ohh this seems interesting. Bookmarked LOL
I have some query thou,
1) are we supposed to post the thread after 5th January? And are we supposed to mention it in the story title "IF NL entry" ? And each round has a winner? So like round 1 winner can be different and round 2 winner can be different? 

2)Regarding the words milestone, is the number of words mentioned the limit or is it necessary requirement? Like for round 2 its 3000 words so is it like the words used should be exactly 3000 or is it like the limit is 3000? 

3) The story can be based on any character/couple of television or any of our fictional characters? 
The contest is judged by panel of judges but readers can vote too right? So is readers votes also a factor considered for determining the winner?

1) yes it has to be posted after 5 jan not necessarily on that day... once you post the thread you have to send me the link to enter the contest. Yes you have to mention IFNC-Entry in the title. And yes there will be different winners each round.

2) you will be judged on the milestones. However you can have more word count than the milestone but it cannot be less than that. The judges will judge till the exact word count.

3) it can be any character. Your own or television like anything as far as you are not writing on any real person (using real name). Public votes are allowed but that has got nothing to with the judgement or winning of a particular fiction.
