I’m about to vote, but before I do, I want to say how awesome this month’s stories are. I could easily vote for five or six and enjoyed all of them. Really. The best month of stories in a while, IMHO.

Voted!

Maybe it´s because we had 2 Months instead of one. Also the topic was very bendable so there were tons of options, you can turn about anything into a game, it is how we spend our time. So people can become extremly creative with that.

I also thought it was hard to vote for only 3.

No it's just 100% because I'm back hahaha!




rolls out and away....


Seriously though, thanks for the post guys, as I need to start reading and I've been finding it hard to make the time recently. I needed that motivation boost. Now I'll make it a thing to achieve tomorrow, instead of "later".

Then if I could get the motivation to sit and write the new topic too......

Good job everybody! You kept me up late last night reading way past my bedtime.

@Slaykomimi I think it's because you all are a talented bunch of writers (and our fickle Muse decided to show herself slowly but surely) :)

Yep, got to admit it was a tougher choice than usual! I voted for three but could have confidently voted for 5. Good month in the end, so I guess it's for the best we spent two months on it!

There's one story in front, but then 3 really close by, so anything can change :D
