    Closed Voting Voting is CLOSED for Contest #173: "Dream Home"

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Short Story Contest Archives' started by GingerCoffee, Apr 27, 2015.

    Short Story Contest # 173
    Theme: "Dream Home" courtesy of @BookLover

    Contest story entries can be found HERE

    We have six entries in this contest. The winner will be revealed in three weeks and the winner thread will be stickied until the next contest's winner is crowned. No more entries are allowed in this contest.

    Entries are listed in the poll in the order posted.

    Voting ends in three weeks, Sunday, May 17th, 2015 ~5:30 pm Pacific Time.

    I encourage authors to vote. While it is controversial, it remains acceptable in the short story contest to vote for yourself. I encourage you to vote honestly. In the name of good sportsmanship only vote for yourself if you have read all the other stories and given them your honest evaluation.

    Consider how the author has responded to the theme, as well as the quality of the writing and overall impression of the story in making your decision.

    Read for pleasure, learning, and to vote.

    Would folks be open to discussing the pieces (ie strengths and weaknesses) after voting period is over? And is this thread appropriate for that?

    The best thread would be the thread with the stories in it. I close them during voting but then open them again for discussion after the poll closes and reveal all the authors. If you ask for feedback people usually give it. If you want to comment on someone else's story keep in mind they may not want to be critiqued. But most people do.

    About 7 more hours to vote - still plenty of time. :)

    I'm actually looking forward to this.

    I didn't enter, but I read everything and voted. Hopefully we can get a good conversation!
