Here is my entry for this months contest.

I felt like writing something silly. While also in its own way, terrifying. The perfect story to tell around a campfire.

Nice job Gordi, looks like you won! I thought this was a writing contest not a video contest. Can you make it clear for the next contest if we can do a video? Writing and making a audio video is much different. Don't get me wrong, your narration is amazing. Thanks friend.

It was a writing contest... Gordi just put a creative spin on it, he wrote a story and then voiced it. The written version was there to be read also for those who did not wish to view the video.

The results haven't been posted yet.

Writing contest is different from a video with audio. Video with audio clearly has advantage. Just my Opinion. All I am saying is for the next contest to be fair the winner should state audio video is allowed, If I knew a video was allowed my entry would have been different.

Audio books are still books.
I don't think in this case there was a particular advantage that was due to the medium.

Still, I don't make the rules and have only ever entered once, unlike most of you.

I understand, the next winner should make it clear is audio video is allowed. Hearing a voice and reading a story to me is different. So what's the point of a writing contest?

Well, maybe it was justified due to the actual story...The medium certainly fit the message didn't it?

But maybe you are right, next time add a rider saying what's allowed.

It was still written, the choice was that of the reader's to decide if they wanted to listen to a little extra creativity. You were in no way required to only listen to the audio. It was still a written story - it had to be written to be voiced and the writing was there on the page to be read.

I would just like to note that you were the first responder to his story also, speaking of how amazing it was and offering a S+F. You only mention your disapproval now?

There was no "rule" for such a thing because it was a burst of creativity. Is creativity not wanted where it is desired? Just a thought at any rate. I won't continue. Peace.

Holy cow! I feel like I should give a teary speech or something

Thanks though. I'm glad I decided to enter one finally
