Been reading as many I can. Some I commented on and others I just flagged and starred. Always busy flitting from ATS to other places and doing things around the house. Oh look, something shiny!

Well, I haven't slept in two days straight, so dumb me jumped in again without reading the rules thoroughly...

I don't know how many words are in this, but enjoy it anyway, just for fun I guess xD

I've been having sleep difficulties too. The moon's up to something, I reckon.

What if I hate whoring myself out for stars (and I guess flags??) I mean, I am not in it to win it.

Just want to show a different point of view on the subject.

Anywho, this contest has got a ton of submissions and I am glad for that!!



And good luck to ya’ll!!

ETA: Merry Xmas!!!

Hi TEOT,

If you want to share your own take on a short story contest theme, without actually entering the contests... It might be an idea to just mark your stories with [NOT AN OFFICIAL ENTRY] or maybe post your work in the Short Story Forum, but outside of the "official" contest threads?

Okay phew! I think I've read them all.

A hearty "well done" to highvein and and14263 who have earned their ATS Writer Status this time around.
A special mention to Kandinsky who would have won the contest by a country mile (had they been non-staff and eligible to enter!!) and to DontTreadOnMe who helps me out a great deal in the background (Thank You!).


This contest was yet another amazing demonstration of the depth of writing talent that we have here on ATS.
Thanks to each and every one of you who took the trouble to enter, to read, to comment and to vote.

I'm heading off to my hideaway holiday island for a few days now, so I'll wish you all a "Happy New Years" just now.

See you all Next Year.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond. The Century link/Verision snafu had me off line for awhile.

Thanks Gordi the Drummer for hosting another fantastic short story contest!!!


And thanks to everyone that contributed to the contest, I read them all and was blown away by the astonishing talent on this site.

And thanks to those that awarded me the flags and stars for my very short story "The Oracle"

I'll try my best to come up with a challenging theme for the next contest.
