I was lying. I didn't write anything, for the first time on 2 years.  :o

Your will isn't that strong  :P

Be not a writer, but a Storyweaver. For that, my friend, is how you'll truly leave your mark.

Where are you guys seeing 24 stories??? I'm only seeing 18 on.

And no I did not write the 18th story. I haven't even read that one yet! ;D
I never said anything about entering this month.
It was just a numbering of people not a ref to any story ... I'll delete them.

Oooh ok sorry I didn't get that. I think Lanko didn't either so I got confused by his comment too hehe.

Some of the regulars apparently downgraded their writing to be unrecognizable. Good job!  ;D

Just kidding of course.

Bit confused here - what is meant to be happening?

Just some misdirection I think. Probably will see a lot of joking and false accusations about who wrote what.

I was lying.

Me too.

That's OK, haven't told anyone I entered a story this time, either. ;)

Where is the voting thread? Does anonymous have more stories to upload?

I think there aren't any more stories, but I'll only do the voting thread tomorrow morning (and try to make it end on the 1st this time, not the 30th ::))
