As a result of various discussions here and in meatspace, the tight 250 limit has been officially relaxed a little. 250 words is still the target, but between 200 and 300 is okay.
Sometimes people will want to write a longer (or shorter) story for a Theme than the limit allows.
This is excellent and awesome!
The Rewrites Category has been changed to Extras. This can still be for rewrites, but also for the special extended editions, the director’s cuts, the 200 words extra footage not seen in the official theatrical release.
The official Submission to a Theme should still adhere to the word limit, though.
