It's time to vote on the 'summer' (July+August) Writing Contest: Story Generator!

We got 6 entries this month - thanks to all who participated!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your two favourite 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, 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.

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

Haven't even started reading yet!  :-[  The month delay kind of wrecked the tempo/rythm of tasks, I'd almost forgotten this needs to be voted on even though it's only six stories.  :-\

Will do it soon, promise.

Voted!
I don't know if it was the short number, but I wish I could have voted for all, each story had its great points and approached the challenge in a different way :D

--> and the current votes sort of show that, being quite evenly spread (although one is taking the lead) - please vote to break the standstill!

8 votes in, which looks like only 4 people voted... seems to be the ones who said so (and they all agreed in one story ;D )

We need more votes!!!!

Has there ever been a tie at the end of voting before? I'd assume both/all the winners get posted.

I've "won" twice in tie, and was one of them three-way? January 15 Religion & December 15: Young Love
