[Nov 2014] - joker month - Voting Thread
« on: December 01, 2014, 09:16:41 PM »
It's time to vote on November's Writing Contest: Joker Month! This means that the participants were allowed to choose any of the themes we had this year. I put the theme they chose into the voting options next to name and title.

There were nine entries this time. Did anybody of the participants took part in NaNoWriMo too? If yes, you have my respect. :) 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 early 2015.

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

Nine voters is great.  But really?  Won't some more of us join in?

Oh dear, I always leave my voting to the last days...
