The Jungle Book

Set during the British Empire, you become a naturalist (not to be confused with naturist) and travel to India in search of the skeleton of an extinct animal.

A literal take on the 'Welcome to the Jungle' competition.

Many thanks to instruMinstrel for proofreading and giving suggestions!

Disclaimer: Seeing as the author and characters are British, their exotic manner of spelling has been adhered to. Please do not tell me my spelling is 'wrong' - it is not 'wrong' but 'different'. (Unless I have actually spelt something wrong...)

Great job, everybody! And thanks to the judges for plodding through about five hours of text.

Well, I guess you'll just have to read my story when it's published ;)

But seriously. If furries dressed as bears isn't your kinda thing, I suggest you stay well away from it.

Oh, and as a complete noob, how long (say you do three-four hours every week) would it take you to write a 10K word story?

Thanks for the advice, I'm not sure if I'll be able to resist slipping a couple of furry teddy bears in though...

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty new to this site, and was considering trying out the 'Welcome to the Jungle' noob's contest. However, instruMinstrel and I (we're siblings) are only about half way through our first story. Also, I think I'm a fair bit younger than most people here, which is why I don't normally post anything, and so my style will probably be quite different from other people's. (There's a high risk of being cast into eternal SHAME, so I'm told.) What do you think?
