[Jan 2015] - Science Fiction - Voting Thread
« on: February 01, 2015, 05:30:33 PM »
It's time to vote on January's Writing Contest: Science Fiction!

Fifteen entries in December, thirteen in January - we're still going strong. :) It's amazing that so mamy of you are taking part in this. :)

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your three 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, 16 and more: 4 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)

One week to go!

I'm reminding people with plenty of time, because usually I forget to read them and only remember when I see a reminder to vote - which is usually posted the day before the deadline... ::)
I'm not that keen on sci-fi, but I'll give your stories a try :D
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!
