I noticed there were only a handful of voters in the last half dozen short story contests. We need more voters. You can read one story a day if the number of entries make for too much reading, there's plenty of time during the poll for that. Also, I suggest people who put up entries pay attention to paragraph formatting. I can't be the only one that hates seeing that wall of text. But I welcome comments on that matter in this thread. It could just be me. And, I'd like to float an idea for future contests: I'd love to see something like runner up points for originality, writing quality, formatting , matching the theme, and ??? .... More people might get positive feedback even if they aren't the winner. I know that might be wieldy so it's just an idea. If it's not practical, no worries. So this thread is to discuss the short story contest, BUT NOT SPECIFIC ENTRIES, PLEASE.
