[Aug 2014] - The Seven Deadly Sins - Voting Thread
« on: September 01, 2014, 10:08:08 AM »
It's time to vote on August's Writing Contest - Seven Deadly Sins!

There were nine entries this time. Not bad for summer. :) Thanks a lot for those great stories!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your two favorite entries in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in Oktober 2014.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for voting! :)

Dam - I spent a week writing mine and my computer broke at home at the weekend after having to cut 3000 words, was just about to send it this morning as you guys don't normally close it until lunch time with the time zones etc - gutted :(

Since you were only about 6 minutes late, I'm going to allow you to submit it now. Just pm me (or post it in the unlocked submission thread).

Thanks xiagan - really appreciate it. It saves the peice of work going to waste. Really enjoyed this one, although it's been the hardest one to write as I really wanted to get all the sins in there. I had to cut loads out, so I've just about made a story out of it.

It's not my best work as I needed about 6,000 words to make it work well and it was a little rushed in the end - but that's the rules, which makes this a hard writing contest - but very enjoyable :)

Thanks again- and I look forward to reading everyones.

Good luck all
