[OCT 2020] - Ticking Time Bomb Scenario - Voting Thread
« on: November 07, 2020, 10:37:28 AM »
It's time to vote on the October Writing Contest: "Ticking Time Bomb Scenario"

This time we got 5 entries - thanks to all who participated!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your favourite entry 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, 6-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months (I'm still hopeful of getting the access to do this...)

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

Deadline: Wednesday, November 25th
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I'm "She Who Reigns Over Us All In Crimson Cheer", according to Peat!

If you'd written a story this time, it would make the total 6, which means 2 votes :P ;D

My, oh, my - that was a cheerful up-lifting  collection of short stories to depress and darken my sunny, summer afternoon. Congratulations.
I think.
Maybe.
But all well written and interesting.
Voted.

I'm so sorry Lady Ty... I know I'm definitely guilty of writing a depressing one this month xD

It's winter here, it's cold and dark, so you have to write us a sunny, warm story to counter balance!!
