It's time to vote on the May Writing Contest: "Earth"

This time we got 7 entries, yay - thanks to all who participated.

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, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

I thought the same, hehe - it's good to have 2 votes, after a couple of months of just a handful of stories!

And about June, I think so, it depends if @xiagan is busy or not.
We've agreed a theme - at least I told him the one I liked best, I'm not sure if he'll go ahead with that one or not ;D

Voted!

A lot of decent stories there, but two absolute BELTERS! The two I chose I didn't just like, they were two of the best I've read on here since I started doing this (a year ago already  :o:)

Way to make people sweat for the review thread Jake!

I'm almost done reading too! There are some proper quality stories this month, it's a pleasure. People were properly inspired by these element topics (And I'm totally not saying that because I won the water one!  ;D)

Yeah, I joined in on the Fire one and I've really enjoyed both writing and reading all three of these months  :)

Many to choose from, which is cool, but alas only two.
I’ll enjoy seeing how others voted!

Congratulations @Nora, another great story :D

I voted for you and @JMack!

And as the months progress, I realise that I'm really into both your writing styles, I always love your stories. And Alex Hormann's too, but this time he just lost the vote by a whisker, hehe
If we didn't have so many newbies I'd like to do another anonymous month where we had to guess who wrote what, as I feel I'd be able to identify both your stories ;D
