Short Story Contest (10) - Voting The winner will be stickied for until the next contest winner. This week's topic was an aftermath. Voting will end 6th October 07. It is possible to vote for yourself, but I would hope in the name of good sportsmanship you will only do so if you have read all the other stories critically and given them your honest evaluation. Winning is fun, but these contests are, like everything else on the site, about improving your writing. You gain nothing if you base your vote solely on how you feel about the author or whether you have personally invested time and effort in the story. In the end, your conscience is your only judge. (With thanks to Cogito for stealing his words.) Good luck to everyone.
