ONE WEEK TO GO Folks!

There is Just One Week left to get those entries in before the end of the contest.

There will then be the usual 7 days of reading and voting!




I've been asking about the possibility of having a Halloween Contest... but it's not looking like it's going to happen unfortunately.

I think we should still be writing our Halloween stories anyway... maybe they could be linked together in a Halloween '17 thread or something?

Any thoughts?

Why not run an informal one?

I think having a collection of Halloween stories from members would be fun. It may help some of us to 'get in the mood' for what is usually one of my favorite times of year.
Perhaps, Gordi, if you build the thread...they will come.

Thank you Gordi!
I will get to the stories this weekend. I love your contests and reading what these fine writers come up with.
It is always so interesting to peer into their minds via their writings and match them up with posts from other parts of the board. I may be the only one that does that though and it may not be an accurate indicator of the person's mentality but, it's fun none the less.
