    My name is R.A. Lundberg, and I’m a writer. Not a published writer, you understand, not even indie published, but I’d like to get there some day. I’d like to join the community, if I may. Thank you!

    Welcome, I recently joined. I submitted a piece for the current Story #91 entitled “Cubicle Land.” I’d like to figure out how to view it and encourage other readers on this forum to read and, if they like it, to vote for it.

    Welcome to the forums paulrpirate. I’m not sure what the Current Story thing is. This forums doesn’t do writing prompts anymore.

    I think WD the magazine has/had a current story feature where you write a graf to start a story based on a picture they print.

    If that is what the OP is referring to then the instructions are in the magazine.
    While I subscribed for many years, these days I only get a stray issue on occasion.

    I did find this on another web page here.
    http://www.writersdigest.com/your-story-competition
    http://www.writersdigest.com/your-story-competition/story-91-submit-now
    That last link shows a picture to prompt a very short story.

    Instructions say
    Prompt: Write a short story, of 650 words or fewer, based on the photo prompt above.

    Many people confuse the forum corner of the f+w WD web site with the main WD site itself.

    I think they print the winner in the magazine. Maybe its on the web site too.

    Don’t know any way of voting for any of them. Maybe the web portion allows that.

    After chasing the rabbit around the internet hole I found that
    the yourstory FAQs says you have to register to vote so I guess there is some voting mechanism.
