Above you say text must be less than 500K. What does that mean? 500,000 words is a huge amount so the next thing would be 500KB. Any idea how many words that could be?

Any genre as long as it's Halloween related is all right?

Darn good question, Calliopenjo. I repeated it on the website.

ETA: And got a reply:


Yes, I did mean 500kb, and yes that would a novel (512,000 characters). The restriction is just so someone doesn't upload a massive amount of gibberish to eat ...So. He doesn't know what 500KB normally means (digital data, not characters), but that is a little clarification. Perhaps I'll try the contest.
