    Closed Voting Short Story Contest #185 Theme: "Whisper"

    Discussion in 'Monthly Short Story Contest Archives' started by GingerCoffee, Feb 1, 2016.

    Short Story Contest #185
    Theme: "Whisper" courtesy of @datahound2u

    Contest story entries can be found HERE.

    We have 10 entries in this contest! The winner will be revealed in 2 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 2 weeks, Sunday, Feb. 14th, 2016 ~19:30 (7:30 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.
    Make someone's day, vote for their story!

    Congratulations @kateamedeo! You won with Whispers. The last vote broke the tie. I also voted for your psycho-killer story.

    Second place goes to @Ex Leper for the mysterious Whispering Lee.

    I liked a lot of these stories. Betty Baxter, Space-gineer floating behind in space made me laugh.

    Congrats @kateamedeo for the win, you deserved it:)
    I personally voted for @Ex Leper's story, Whispering Lee. I just loved everything about it, the horror element, the mystery, the somewhat old-fashioned writing style. It was very well-written overall.
